i been thinking of buying the otterbox for my x but 50 bucks? :omg:

so i'm shopping around on ebay and see some for like 20 dollars. is this too good to be true?

has anyone else gotten a good deal on the case like that?

i have the extended battery so im going to dremel out the back part and just incase i mess up wasting 20 bucks is better than 50 ya know?

That's how I got my defender and its worth every penny, even at the 50 bucks.

When you get it, id imagine you'd only have to dremel the hardshell. Id try that before cutting the silicon cover. If that works, no one would even notice any difference at all and would be very esthetically pleasing.

you know i should have been more specific. i have the 3500 mAh battery from gorilla gadgets not the official one. so i'm thinking "dremel"

You may need to augment the case slightly :)

I have a new defender in box from ebay for about 30 bucks with shipping. Worth every penny. Also have 3500 mhz battery in original back. Fits like a champ. Plus hard screen protector almost feels better than the screen itself.

really? that's amazing news! yeh came to like 29 something at amazon. not bad. i always try to get good deals =) i always enjoy my purchases more if i know i got them for cheap. paying 25 for this would have been that ideal price but i'll live.

i can personally verify that this phone is a beast. i threw it a few times in my car while playing yo-yo ninja and threw it at the wall while playing black ops. not even a scratch =). dont worry i take better care of my phone now. the case actually was here when i got home from work. shipped 3 days sooner than expected. (very impressive amazon) I dunno who told me the 3500 battery would fit in the otterbox but lol it's not even close! def going to have to dremel!

Man! That's my bad! I have BH6X 1840 mah battery using the standard door and the defender. Wasn't thinking and had a huge brain fart. Yea for the dremel. Sorry dude. Hope that works. If not the bh6x works.

Yea I may never use buy.com again. It just got to Ohio and it shipped on the 9th. I live in PA. Why couldn't they just use UPS instead of mail piece shipping?
