Any generic cases that'll fit the verizon version, or are verizon users stuck with the ones on their website? I'd read somewhere that "some" generic cases "might" fit the verizon phone, but can't find any more info. Thanks.

Unfortunately I can't answer the question about the case, but I do have a related question.. What is different about the Verizon version of the OnePlus 8, vs like the T-mobile, or unlocked version.
I'm looking for cases myself, but I have the one from T-mobile. And when searching amazon, I've seen some listed as "Verizon Only" ..

Don't know how you did that...all the ones I find say "Not for Verizon". The difference, as I understand it, is verizon's 5g hardware is bigger / located in a different location, which caused some buttons to be moved. So for most case designs, verizon phones won't work, but all other 8's (not pro) will...the exception would be a few that have cutouts that can accomodate either configuration...but info on which those are is sparse.

I went through a lot of pages of case on amazon; as 99% of them are terrible cheap looking crap, and a lot were for the wrong device as Amazons search sucks.. but there were a few. One I actually liked but it says Verizon only..

the Verizon version is the only one that is different... I myself bought the karbon bumper case from T-Mobile, the official one from OnePlus I also have a tech21 Evo check case that comes with interchangeable colored buttons

Wondering how that helps, as the OP is looking for a Verizon Case, not T-mobile.
