    Default Verizon z30 case?

    Hi I have a z30 on the way and was going to get the otter box commuter case. In the description from the seller it says it doesn't work with the Verizon z30. What cases can I use?

    Thanks

    I use these:
    GreatShield GUARDIAN S Series Slim-Fit TPU Case for Blackberry Aristo Z30 / A10 (Black) 9 bucks Amyzon, and
    For BlackBerry Z30 (Verizon) HIGH END BLACK SIDEWAYS LEATHER FLAP CASE POUCH SWIVEL BELT CLIP HOLSTER A3+Stylus Pen(By All_Instore) 12 bucks at Amyzon.
    You will have to "stretch" the leather case elastic a bit, it wasn't designed for the Great Sheild to be in place at the same time, but after 4/5 days, it all slips in nicely.

    I had this one on my 9550 and 9850 before I gots my Z30, and thinking of trying this one also:
    BlackBerry Z30 Shell Holster Combo - Black

    I think these are the best options for me at this time with the very limited options for this Flagship phone,.....

    The only reason I can think of why it doesn't work with the vzw model would be it won't allow wireless charging. Otherwise the phnes are exactly the same.

    The vzw phone is a different size slightly. Has something to do with the antenna arrangement to work on vzw network.

    If you go to the Otterbox website, they sell the Commuter specifically for the Verizon Z30. Has to do with the wireless charging. I'm using one on mine and love it.

    Is the model number somewhere on the case or have some way to determine it's the right Commuter case absent the phone?

    I meant on the commuter case itself because i have one with no packaging and I can't tell which one it is.

    The Defender is much thicker and has three layers of protection, a built-in clear screen cover, as well as a detachable holster panel with belt clip. The Commuter is thinner and lighter, has a separate film as screen protector. It also has no holster nor clip.

    Forgot to mention that I gave both the Otterbox Defender and Commuter cases.

    I know, I have the Commuter case but can't differentiate if its the one for Verizon or not.

    Me too although I don't use it, too bulky. Clear TPU for $6 is what I'm now using.

    Otter Box defender case works fine on my Verizon Z30. Got the defender case because of riding on my Harley!
