Manufacturers and Cases
im sure its been posted already, but this is my turn, it just happened to me.

for the (THIRD!) year in a row my brand new phone i bought is cosmetically damaged before i received my case.

its not bad, but there is a chunk out of the silver part, front top left right above the headphone jack.

the worst part is this time i dont even know how it happened. i never dropped it, or i dont remember... man this sucks, the case will be here in two days. every phone ive bought ive at least scratched it bad while i was waiting for the case.

if these manufacturers can make such nice bodies and designs of these phones, why cant they include a nice form-fitting case? i hate pouch cases.

It seems that the trend is not to include cases anymore. The past few phones I purchased were without cases in the box. I guess the manufacturers could be thinking why include a case for free, when you can sell one separately and make more money. Personally, I think the cases that did come with the phones were always low quality, and I always went and purchased after-market cases anyway.

It might only cost them .25 cents to include a case but when you add that up times a few million, it starts to add up. I don't really mind not getting a case. The 8700 came with the worse case known to mankind and I think all but a few were instantly chucked in the trash :)

Maybe next time, you should buy the case first than when you receive it buy the phone.

well that would be logical. although, its hard to pay $30 for a case before you buy a phone you dont even know youre going to like.

oh well at least the case will cover up the gouge on the phone. still it will probably knock off a little on my ebay auction when it comes time to sell:rolleyes:
