Dont drop it..
Date:March 3, 2014
Location: earth
An hour after I installed case on Z30 I climbed into the back of my pickup truck and the heavy jacket lifted it out of the holster and it hit the bumper on way to the ground and the LCD screen under the invisishield screen protector cracked. This destroyed the Z30 while inside the Otterbox defender. Never had that happen to any phone. With or without otterbox.
The cause of it was the release tabs of the holster. They were on top so when I was standing up the jacket snagged on the release tabs pulling it out of the holster. To effectively prevent this make sure the pull tabs both face the ground. If jacket snags while standing up it will now pull tabs close too keep it in holster. If jacket goes down like when you bend over it just rubs the corners but not detaching the Z30.
With SECOND Z30 it has been a good case. It still works with wireless charging pads so you can leave case on. One of the best features is its logo cutout. It allows for charging and easier holding of the device.
If you want a good case for the Z30 this is it. JUST REMEMBER THE TWO PULL TABS MUST BE FACING DOWN PARALLEL TO THE GROUND WITH THE TWO PROTECTIVE CORNERS ON TOP LEFT AND RIGHT. Then device can be secure. OH one more thing, this case DOES NOT INTERFERE with gestures. You can be slightly off edge when you start and complete the gesture for the result,so don't worry about it. They will work fine.
Pros: High quality
Cons: does not grant immunity to gravity :p

Using the clip like a stand on the BlackBerry Z30

How do you cancel sleep mode on the Z30 to watch a movie or have the clock on while using the stand?
I suspect that can be done in settings menu. However I suspect that holster option is available in 10.2.1 that Verizon still has not released. Check your settings menu to confirm.

Verizon Z30...

Will this case fit the Verizon Z30? I see the Commuter case specifically calls out a Verizon addition and the Defender does not. Why is this and will it work on the Verizon Z30?

Thanks.
Yes it fits the Z30 perfectly if you have Verizon Z30. JUST AVOID MY MISTAKE if you get it. MAKE SURE THE TWO RELEASE TABS POINT DOWN FACING THE GROUND. If not, your jacket can snag on the tabs and pull phone out of holster when standing up...like mine did. I corrected this on second Z30. First one bumped the tailgate of truck when standing up and cracked the LCD UNDER THE INVISISHIELD screen protector.
It is a good case. Wireless charging still works with it on device and all gestures work fine too. Enjoy:)
