Well, I am using one, and my wife is using one. I have the Visor Pro and the wife a Deluxe with the Sprint Digital Link. As I said though, you have to cut it with a exacto Knife or razor blade to get it to fit. One thing about this case is that it fits very snug at first, but as you use it over time, and occasionally take the Visor out of it (She has to to replace batteries), it will "wear" fit itself, and not be so tight. I like it, as it has a flip door which is down when using the phone without a headset, and protects the screen. One disadvantage to having the PDA/Phone unit, is when someone wants to borrow it to make a call...before I got this case, I would get it back with makeup, sweat, etc all over the screen. This case protects the Visor very well. Other possible disadvantages are stylus goes on the outside of case...might be easier to lose it, though I haven't yet in over 6 months. And you have to cut a little hole in the back for your reset button. Also, it won't charge in the cradle unless removed from the case, however, I don't use the cradle any more..bought a nice USB Sync/charge cable, and it works right in the case thru the cutout in the bottom. Another minor thing about the case is that the door is held close with 2 little rubber tits, which don't work all that well, especially since the case is a tight fit. But I keep the unit in my pocket usually...might be more of a factor if you wanted to hang the unit off your belt, etc. But I am happy with the case...has a high "coolness" factor too.
