So i just recently invested in this sexy piece...It's got a microban antimicrobial protection layer built into the actual case. I thought that was cool...But it looks hella slick so I just thought I'd share...Cheers!

I had the black one and LOVED it.

Here is a suggestion to help with hearing the phone when it rings in your pocket. As you already know, the rear completely covers the speaker and substantially dampens the sounds made by the Storm.

Some people use an exacto knife to cut a slit but having worked with plastic models I felt the end result wouldn't be aesthestically pleasing. I secured the case in a model vise (without the Storm inside it) and used a Dremel rotary tool to make several small holes in the case in the area covering the speaker. I took my time and the result looked as though it were part of the case design. This enabled me to hear the ringing and alerts quite well.

Just a suggestion!
