I bought the case the same day I got my phone. I removed the case today to remove dust from under the case and notices that the sides of my Epic were scratched by the case

Thank you for the tip. Have you gotten a replacement for it yet?

Not yet. I sent Xentris an email but they haven't replied yet. I'm sure if I complained to Best Buy about it they'd give me a new phone but I don't know if I will. I wish they made a case that was lined with silicone on the inside for the Epic.

This seems to be a common problem for the Epic hard cases. I'm not a fan of hard cases just because of the bulk, but it's good to know they are messing them up.

I'm not a fan of hard cases either, I prefer silicone cases, but since the Epic is a sliding phone all we get are hard cases

cant stand hard cases either....for now until i find the right case (i swear its taking longer to find that than my last car). All im using for now is a bag that i got with a pair of oakleys from sunglass hut. scratch protection....better than nothing. every other type of potential hazzard.....its a nightmare!

do they make a case that does not allow the phone to slide? may sound terribly stupid, but my gf does not really need the physical keyboard...

just curious.

I tried the Verizon gel case at Best Buy, not great, because I don't want the slider either.

Next stop is cheap kiosk at mall, the Verizon phone has same rounded corner
and shape, just thinner, so something might be workable.
