    Default i9300 Flip Cover fits MetroPCS's SCH-R530?

    Hello everyone.

    I currently have a blackberry and will be getting the Galaxy S3 with MetroPCS soon (my first Android device ever). I was shoppig around eBay for accesories and found some good deals. I really want to get that flip cover but on eBay it all says, "ONLY for i9300". Which I now it's the international model. I checked on Wikipedia for dimensions, they're both the same, 136.670.78.6 mm (5.382.780.34 in). So figured that the flip cover for the i9300 should fit SCH-R530, but I don't want to gamble. I hate losing money. Did anyone purchase an "i9300" flip cover and put on a SCH-R530? If so, is it a perfect fit? Or does anyone know if it'll fit because of same dimensions? Help please. Thanks....

    It will fit. None of the Galaxy S3 models were changed from carrier to carrier.

    The flip cover will fit on every single variant of the GS3. The only one that may not work is the South Korean version which is technically thicker but I still think it will work. The i9300 and all US versions have the same physical dimensions.
