    DUH! For flip sake, why didn't you call me and tell me this?

    Force of habit with my HTC ONE X, always pressing the power button. I hated the power button on the HTC One X in a case, in particular the Speck case...

    PS: THANKS!

    I think the active or convert would be more similar to the OB defender. The surface is a much lighter case. It offers some protection against drops etc but adds minimal bulk. The surface is also cut out for the power and volume buttons giving access to these buttons. It is also a hard plastic with a gripy coating. The OB defender and the Seidio Active and Convert give much more protection but with more bulk.

    I emailed Otterbox about the issue with the Commuter; being hard to press the power button.

    A moment ago I received an email from them, they are sending me a new Commuter. So, I wonder if the 'rubber gel' on my current one is just too hard\faulty. They shipped a replacement, without even digging into it further. I wonder if they were already aware of the issue. Interesting...

    Otterbox has the best customer service of any company I can remember dealing with.

    I had two of the small clips snap on a Gnex defender box, called told them what happened and no questions asked they sent me another one. They didn't even want the old one back, told me to pitch the broken part and use the others for spares if I ever needed them.

    I don't care what kind of phone you use, that's not how I judge someone's worth or intelligence. Sent using tapatalk 2.

    Thanks for posting this.

    I get emails from Seidio but I seem to check this board more often then I do my emails. I just got back in town this morning (after leaving the day of my phone being shipped on the 21st). That is pain knowing your new phone is sitting at your house and your 800 miles away, for 6 days!!

    I have it charged, but not activated. I wanted to get the case for it ordered and on it's way first . I just ordered the Surface, and will then get the Convert Add on when it becomes available. The 20% off makes up the $10 difference you pay when you order the Surface and Convert kit separately, as opposed to ordering the Convert Value pack (which isn't available yet either).

    Every saved dollar helps. Now to activate and play with (I mean, learn) my new phone.....

    I can't find any case local to me (Atlanta, Kennesaw - GA).

    Seriously, I have to order something online? This device is so slippery...

    Did you ever find anything local? I live in the same area. No phone yet just trying to get geared up for when it comes in.

    Amazon.com: Diztronic Matte Back Clear Flexible TPU Case & Screen Protector for Samsung Galaxy S III (Sprint, AT&T, T-Mobile, US Cellular, Verizon and International Carriers) [Diztronic Retail Packaging]: Cell Phones & Accessories

    Picked this one up today, the price was right with included screen protector and I wanted something clear because I got the white phone and wanted to see it for a while at least.

    I received my Seidio Surface combo today. The case fits great and of course the holster holds the phone to your belt or pants just fine, freeing up your pocket.

    What color did you get? I can't decide between the black and the white.

    Did it come with a screen protector? I know that my GS3 has GG2 but that only means more scratch resistance.

    No. I had ordered the SGP Ultra Crystal and installed it when I received my phone. I then received a email from the vendor I bought it from (Citi.E on Amazon) saying that due to the curve of the screen at the edge, they were sending me the SGP Nano screen protector for free. I have not received them yet. I always use screen protectors.

    That is why I don't mind paying extra for the Defender as we get a screen protector.

    Using a Rearth Ringbo on mine. Let me know how the nano fits. Don't like how little this covers. Surely there is a happy medium somewhere.

    Saw the Samsung flipcase and Body Glove cases at the AT&T company store. There are some gel cases and Rocketfish cases at Best Buy. Still holding out for the Defender.
