    So are there going to be many upcoming skyrocket specific cases, or will the international or T-mobile cases fit these?

    I'm looking for a thin case that just covers the edges, what is everyone using/going to use?

    Phone feels quite naked right now.

    I agree, all they had was an otter box case at the att store. I opted no case and just got a moshi screen protector.

    I got the Otter Box from AT&T and it is just like the one I had on my iPhone, which I like pretty well.

    They didn't have the screen protectors, though.

    I got the $25 otter box and the screen protector. I'm hoping enough of these sell so Seido will make the convert for it. I have that on my Atrix. Wasn't paying attention as didn't stick in my holster and it popped out a 40mph on my motorcycle. Absolutely no damage to the phone.

    I too like the seidio products. I usually go with the surface combo.

    Go to Cretouch.com, like the SGP Neo-Hybrid case.

    I just left the T-Mobile store. Their cases have the speaker and Mike cutout in the wrong spots so they wont work. Good fit otherwise though.

    Picked up the in store outterbox. Nice rubber case. Makes a big phone even bigger though. Also, serious lint magnet. Impossible to keep clean.

    Every store I went to only had the Otterbox. I really didn't like it because it felt cheap and was unnecessarily thick. Hoping for a TPU case soon.

    Looks like a good inexpensive case. Here's a preview of what it might look like - this is for the t-mobile variant:

    Good looking out. They look pretty nice and I like the variety of colors; I'll be sure to get one as soon as they're for sale.

    Anybody else bothered by the lack of available cases?? I had the GS2 and many were there at launch. I tried ordering the Otterbox Defender, the order went through but wasn't shipped.
    Called today and it is on backorder. Wasn't when I ordered.
    The Moshi shows some of the "Samsung" lettering through the holes for the capacitive buttons, correct?? Doesn't it look off?

    Those who have the Moshi, please comment.
    Thanks!!

    Yes, the Moshi shows part of the Samsung letters. I'm returning mine for this reason and because I don't like how it dims the screen a little. Otherwise it was a really great screen. Very smooth feeling and never got fingerprints. Which btw the naked gorilla glass on my Skyrocket is also pretty decent about not getting fingerprints.

    OG GSII may have had more cases because the exact same body style was already in production in Europe for several months prior to US launch. At least I *think* was exactly the same.

    Yeah AT&T hasn't even shipped my commuter case yet. Good grief. Glad I didn't pay for overnight shipping, if its going to take them 3 days to even get it out the door.

    EDIT: AAANNNNDDDD, it's out of stock. Awesome

    I am! I was about to order a case. The site said "in stock," but I emailed them to make sure and they responded, "out of stock" and promptly changed there listings.

    This phone is thin and slick which makes it not so easy to hold confidently.
