    USPS is terrible at updating tracking info. Ive had this happen many of times it says they dont have it or they received shipping info but they dont have the package yet. Im sure yours has shipped!
    I have checked my email now before going to bed and nothing about it being on back order. Amazon's website said it should ship tomorrow or Friday.

    Even if the seller did charge you for an item and you never got it Amazon I think honor's their product. So she would get a full refund anyways from my understanding. But like you said...I'm sure it shipped!

    I hope mine ships in a few days so that we may see the case finally being released!

    I hope so. I have a case from sprint from a company called Random Order. It has a belt clip holster too and its nice but I really like the protection Otterbox gives and I especially like that they offered it in a few more colors other than black

    Yeah I will keep you posted on my findings as well. I am expecting a delayed shipping email. If that s the case then I will be canceling the order and re-ordering VIA Amazon them self. Might even get the white one at that point.

    I got an email today letting me know it shipped USPS. I gave them a call, and was told to expect it in Chicago by Sat/Mon, as it is coming from New York. If true, they did better than shipping on the 14th as their website said when the case was ordered. I'll post here when I get it.

    Well got an email from the company on Amazon saying the case has been delayed. And the email has the nerve to say not to leave negative feedback when they marked my item as shipped and it hasn't been. WTF?!? I would cancel the order and get it from smartphonepedia but I want the purple one and its out of stock there too and won't be in stock until the end of the month which is around the same time as my order on Amazon FML

    At least I have some other goodies coming in the mail I bought for my phone from EBay & Amazon. I bought 2 extra samsung standard oem batteries that come with a wall charger along with a 32GB memory card, extra samsung usb and wall plug combo, and a waterproof pouch for the S3 from amazon. At least those will soften the blow of not getting my otterbox. Does anyone know if a slim extended battery has been released and if so where I can get it?

    Well I went to my local sprint corporate store and they had the otterbox defender case for the s3. the lady who works there told me that they got them the day before yesterday in shipment so anyone looking to get the otterbox cases that ordered it try going to your local sprint store. The only bad thing is that they only have the black case and I wanted the purple one. Oh well at least I got it

    Online they definitely had better deals and cheaper prices but I'm impatient and the constant back orders and delays got me frustrated. I hope you get yours soon
