    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?

    Ordered the HTC kickstand case from HTCPedia.com, since I use my 4G's kickstand a lot and I think I'm going to miss it on the 3D.

    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.

    heh, I was going to comment how could this not fit in your pocket, then I got to the end. though, I have a feeling it will not be comfortable to sit down w/ this in my pocket.. I hate taking out my phone to sit.

    Carry my phones naked. I have 2 EVO 4G cases that I used on the day I purchased them. I won't buy another phone case again.

    I love naked phones but my heart stops when I drop them. I always say I won't but I always do at some point. I'll have to keep it naked for some time though as the case I would use is already sold out,

    I hope there's one like the Palm Pre case with the ribbon to pull the phone out.
    I love that style of case, the belt clip has been great, the one's that rotate always break.

    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!

    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.

    I've always been a huge Otterbox fan, but I'm considering trying the Seido Active with this phone. I see it shows as "coming soon" on their website, but still nothing on Otterbox.com.

    Really not a monster. I use a case on my evo called the barly there case. Its just that. Adds almost no bulk but is designed to protect the lens. Even with this case on it still fits in my pocket with less bulge then my pre did.

    Looking at the HTC kickstand case for now, and an Otterbox Commuter series when/if it ever comes out.

    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.

    none, i can't stand any type of phone cases. i tried out a silicone one on my incredible but took it off after a few days. i've had the incredible for more than a year and it doesn't even have a scratch on it with no protection. only noticeable wear is the htc silver has turned to copperish silver.

    Picked up this temporary case

    Amazon.com: TPU Skin Cover for HTC EVO 3D, Black: Electronics

    Hopefully it keeps the camera lens off the desk

    Damn, all the good cases are sold out. I'm guessing Best Buy will bombard me with options once i pick up my phone, though. Hopefully.

    If not, I'll squeeze my EVO in my 1st gen iPod Touch leather case.

    I go to the beach frequently so I'd love to have a waterproof case similar to the one in this vid (made for iPhone4):

    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.

    I'm going to put a cheap Tpu case on until we hear back from the people who let their phones go naked. That camera issue really worries me since you can't replace it like you could a cover.
