I don’t get how it works, at all, any of it. But I know how to dress it.
1st Choice: PureGear’s well-engineered case with cover (cover slides on, gorgeously) with a sturdy kickstand so you can prop up your phone at your desk. Go to eBay and enter “Snap On Shell Holster Combo Case” to view its excellence. I got mine from The Prune Danish. They ship fast, plus who doesn’t want to buy something from The Prune Danish?
2nd Choice: Incipio’s SILICRYLIC® Double Cover. That’s like slipping a spongy wetsuit under your hard case. The wetsuit covers your + – buttons without compromising them. When you drop it, your phone makes a soft landing.
It doesn’t have a cover, so make one or enlist the aid of your craftly craftswomen.
