    Where did you get the OB case from? I tried on Amazon and they were delayed. I want color cases for myself and wife.

    I bought the flip case but will be looking at something more protective.

    I have heard good things out of these guys, if your looking for a cost effective case, and they have some pretty cool looking ones. Never used one, but I plan on getting one if I get the S3. http://amzn.to/NeCKIu

    I'm using the Flexible TPU Diztronic case and I love it! It has a nice matte look and feel and while it is flexible, it doesn't a finish that makes it difficult to remove from your pocket. The rim around the screen is harder plastic to make it sturdy

    *update one day later and the case is covered with hair line scratches, not too noticeable unless you are examining it under a light.

    Speck Candyshell on the way, cheapo E-Bay TPU case for the moment. Considering a wet-application screen protector too, as the clingy ones seem to get fudged up by the raised bezel. Had problems with LDI's tripping before with the wet application ones though :/

    I got mine from ebay and it came with the case, screen protector and a car charger. The case doesn't make the phone bulky...at least to me but I'm coming from a thunderbolt with a sedio case.

    I got a cheap SLine gel case w/stand clear/black. Decent enough to hold me over til I figure out what I really like

    Since I want this phone to last for as long as possible so I can keep my unlimited data I felt like some upgraded protection was justifiable.

    I got an otterbox commuter (first otterbox I have ever owned, had every other kind in the past). I must say it was well worth the $28 off amazon. Everything about it seems higher quality, my phone feels well protected, and the commuter does not seem to add too much bulk.

    I can post a picture of the phone in the case if someone wants to see it.

    Although I read reviews of people saying otterbox had a very tacky rubber that picked up pocket lint. I have found this NOT to be the case. This was my biggest worry in buying the case and I must say it is not a problem at all.

    I hope that is enough viewing angles. If there is something specific you want to see let me know. Please excuse the smudges on the screen protector/phone, these came from a terrifying experience letting verizon put my screen protector on for me.

    Oh yah, I really like the ports being sealed up.

    I've been trying to find a belt holster that has the phone on it's side but can't seem to find anything big enough. Anybody else find one? Would prefer it to have loops on the back and not just a clip.

    No problem. They have (or had when I bought mine) multiple colors on Amazon. It really is not too bulky, I was slightly worried about that but I had read others saying it wasn't too bad.
