What case will you be getting?
I've never owned a phone as large as the 3D so trying to get ideas on how to protect it. I usually carry my phones in a leather side case, but I am also considering putting a bumper on it for those inevitable falls. Most bumpers arnt compatible with side cases tho. So what will you all be getting?

I'm not sure what to do. I've always owned Blackberries, and I now have the HTC Arrive - I've always just put them in my front jeans pocket and been good to go. Obviously this monster is NOT going to fit in my pocket, particularly with a case. I either need to start carrying a purse (I've never been a purse sort of girl) or figure something else out. I feel like a dork if I use a holster.

I'm torn. I'm not a case fan, especially on a phone so large, but I do like the Ringke case on my brother's Nexus S. Sadly, they have no plans on making one soon. But the extra 2mm or so might drive me mad.
I like the HTC case, but it will probably be too bulky.
I will likely still use a screen protector, but anyone have any suggestions to those that feel as close to the screen as possible? Ghost Armor was good on my Pre, BSE/Zagg no. The Ringke screen protector for the nexus isn't too bad actually either. But trying to get my options lined up for whoever has it first.

I have always carried my EVO 4G naked (and the Palm Pre before it), but the unprotected camera lens cover is bothering me even more on the 3D than the lens on the 4G did. I'm thinking about trying to track down the impossible dream of a case that protects the lens cover, yet doesn't add much bulk. If it also had a kickstand, that would be nice of course!Palm V-->Palm Vx-->Palm m505-->Garmin iQue3600-->Treo 650-->Treo 755p-->Palm Pre-->EVO 4G-->EVO 3D-->Droid Razr Maxx

Do we know what cases/accessories Sprint stores will have on release date? Seeing as how all the stuff on HTCepedia are sold out until late July. Although I've been using my Evo naked for the past 6 months and have enjoyed rediscovering how slim my phone really is.

My Evo 4G has the Platinum/Seidio Surface case on it now, and that's about as big as I'd want the case to be. Any bulkier, and I'll pass.
Right now the biggest concern I have is the availability of cases at launch day. We really can't seem to get a decent answer out of anyone.

I'm looking at TPU cases. Seidio doesn't have anything up yet.
I think this will do for now..

I have a cheap Empire case from Amazon on the way. I'll use this until I can pick up a much better quality case after launch. Due to extreme quality of build issues Otterbox Defender case for my EVO 4G I will not be buying from them though.Fubie
