    Always. I have destroyed many clips over the years! I have a screen protector on and I just always remember to put it face down and power button down. Been doing it that way since I got it..almost a year now.

    Always. I use a Zagg screen protector and never put anything else in that pocket. Been doing that for almost a year and phone looks brand new.

    Been doing it for a long time now, screen towards leg, buttons down. Never a problem, no scratches or anything. Also, nothing else goes in that pocket.

    I normally use a holster, but when I don't, I have the screen toward leg buttons up. Nothing else in the pocket. No screen protector.

    I always carry mine in pocket. With screen facing leg. Zagg screen protector, and slim fitting case.

    When I first bought my OG I always used a case. After a month so so, I took it off to do something and my case was scratched by dirt/sand/grit. The sides were marred badly and I was very angry. That is what I was trying to protect it against!:mad: I took the case off and started going naked except for a screen protector. Never got another scratch. Doing the same thing with by Bionic and it is fine so far. :biggrin:

    You have gorilla glass, dude, it's not going to get damaged that easily. I don't have a screen protector and I'm pretty indiscriminate with where I put my phone. No scratches.

    If that was the case why would they make a screens protector for it?

    Because people are making money from it. Google Gorilla Glass and watch a few videos of what it takes to scratch or crack it.

    I carry mine in my back pocket, no screen protector, no problems.
    Of course I have to remove it when I get in the car, sit down, etc....no big deal...I'm just not a big fan of the belt/holster clips with a 4.8" phone. Wasn't a problem using a belt clip with my smaller feature phones back in the day, but the S3 just doesn't look or feel right hanging off my hip.
    (Of course that's just my preference) :)

    Yes always in my pocket. Im afraid to use the belt holster that came with my case because someone could steal it and run.

    LOL! I wouldn't worry too much about refurbs with the S3 just yet....It's still too new for you to get an actual "refurb". There have been quite a few people on our sister site, the S3 forums, that needed replacements and they got brand new ones.
    Great story though and I'm glad you were able to get it repaired! :thumbup:
