The Otterbox Defender for BB Z30 is a good case for the main features I need: A belt swivel clip type case with the phone still in a protective case when you remove it from the holster. This is the only case out there (at the time of this writing) that does this for this model phone.
My only real complaint is that the built-in screen protector does not lie flat to the screen. It bulges up in the middle, allowing dust to get in through the cut outs at the top of the screen. So I have to periodically disassemble the case to remove the dust that got in. Of course, there is no water proofness either. But it is indeed a very rugged case that will protect your phone from a drop, or being knocked around.
Pros: High quality, Durable, belt swivel clip type case, phone has protective case around it at all times
Cons: built-in screen protector does not lie flat

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, I am using this case on a BlackBerry Z30 from Verizon Wireless. All ports are easily acessible.

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?
To cancel sleep mode (bedside mode), simply swipe up from the bottom of the screen. That enables you to stop the clock app that you used to start Bedside Mode (unless you started bedside mode from the lock screen).
To have the clock on while using the stand (like for a bedside clock), you have to leave the charger connected through the night. Otherwise the display will time out and go black to whatever interval you have set for the screen lock.
