I just bought an LG Lucid with an extended battery. Because of the extended battery, my phone is much thicker than it used to be. I want to buy a gel cover for my phone, but Verizon doesn't seem to stock them for phones with extended batteries. Does anyone know where I can find them? And why hasn't verizon made covers to fit the extended battery!?
They (Verizon Wireless) might offer a case later for the extended battery. It took a few months for the Thunderbolt one was available. However you can try www.androidcentral.com or Seido (I think that is how it is spelled.) to see if the extended battery cases are offered there.
I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
Try a Verizon Store. NOT a Verizon Wireless Store, though. I found a nice hard case for my Lucid at the Brentwood, CA Verizon Store. It's around $29 but worth it! The main cover has a kickstand so I can prop up the phone and then there is an outer case that has a belt clip on it. It's very nice looking and also protects the phone really well! I hope this helps!
or buy a regular gel cover and cut out the opening for the extended battery with an exacto knife. that's what we all had to do with the htc incredible a couple years back when NOBODY made a cover for the extended battery.
Good point about distinguishing between Verizon-owned stores and 3rd-party stores (if that's the point you're making). When I got an extended battery for my Samsung Stratosphere, I was told that cases weren't available for it at a 3rd-party store (which didn't have the battery in stock either). But at a Verizon-owned store, they did in fact have a case (just one model).
Another place on-line that you can try is Wirefly.com. One thing you don't want to do is get a case from a mall kiosk or a place like Wal-mart. These cases usually have magnets in them which really drive cell phones crazy.
There is not a silicone/TPU skin available for the Lucid with the extended battery. I contacted LG and Verizon, and they are not aware of anyone that makes this type of case. I then contacted three manufacturers of fitted cases; Ventev (who makes the one Verizon sells), Qmadix, and Body Glove. Qmadix responded quickly, but negatively - they will not make a skin to fit the extended battery. I will look through Amazon again for additional makers of silicone/gel cases to contact; if anyone has contact information, post it here. These manufacturers need to hear from people who want to spend money!

I have a new Lucid and found a great selection, great price and free shipping: Cellphone Emporium. They ship the same day and I received my case two days from the day ordered. They carry the "Dickies" line, which are strong industrial-strength cases. I bought the model that sits perpendicular ON my belt via an incredibly sturdy loop/ Really happy with it. The entire phone fits in the holster. They also carry the belt model that is parallel to your belt.
Can you share the link for Cellphone Emporium, please? I can't find that site, though I did find one called Wireless Emporium (http://www.wirelessemporium.com/). They seem to have lots of interesting products.
I recently found accessorygeeks.com they have cases for every phone out. just bought 2 a hard & gel prices are very reasonable1 for 9.99 & the other for 12.99 ....they carry just about everything http://www.accessorygeeks.com/
