Yes, I have one for my N900.

I was also concerned before I bought it. But yes, they still work.

It is already a thick phone. The case makes it thicker. It is a
drawback when compared
to the very thin Android and iPhone phones. But I do not see it as a problem.

Exact reason why I got a case. I am pretty satisfied w/ the otter box.
