    my sister just bought an 8530 from VZW yesterday and she got them to throw in a case for free. i figured it would be one of the cheap silicone ones, but to my surprise it was definitely an Epik resin case. while it was VZ branded on the box, it is made of the exact same material as the epik one i have for my 9550 and features the same design as this case:

    i am surprised to see VZ adopting these cases so quickly, even though i LOVE mine. i wonder what they are paying for them because they are selling them for $13.95 but obviously, occasionally, giving them away with new phones. i would still order mine from CB member JustinD2473 on his site if you are going to have to pay for one since his are only $7 shipped, but you just can't argue with free!

    $13.95 is alot considering they are probably getting them for dirt cheap.

    But most people in the VZW stores will have never heard of them and not know there is a cheaper alternative on the internet.

    hopefully they fit ok....the pro cases i got from DCMugen are flawed...he has even stopped selling them recently. Waiting for a redesign from the factory now

    i tested it and it fit perfectly. no issues with the mute or lock buttons. however, i didn't feel like paying $25 for it.

    keep us posted on when you get the Pro 9700 again Justin. Thx.

    This is typical captive audience stuff. Figure out how much you pay for a phone after you get gouged for two years. Not surprising they try to rake people over the coals for these cases. Like Justin alluded, they probably buy huge quantities for nothing per unit and make $13.94 profit..

    I'll support a guy like Justin who gives great service and good prices. The big companies can stick it to themselves before I'll let them stick me

    I saw them at a store in Saskatoon for $17.95 each. This was crazy. The dude tried to sell me one and I just laughed. My shipment was already on it's way, 5 cases for $20.

    Yaaaa.....someone at a Kiosk in one of the malls here in Vancouver is selling epik cases for $24 each....... Sadly he must be selling a lot, he's been at it for a few months now.

    You can buy 'em from Justin for six bucks plus minimal shipping. Open up a kiosk next to the ******* from Verizon and sell 'em for 20 bucks LOL.

    Does anyone recall or know the discount VZW VIP members receive on accessories? I happen to recall it being like 20%?

    Ya, why not? I just ordered one off ebay for $6.99 free shipping. If it doesn't fit your style, your only out $7.
