    I've decided cases are like condoms. Yeah, I'm taking a risk but it feels better without it.

    I've been using mine case-less since I bought it, it's a bit thin and slick. The Zagg skin made it MUCH better, it's not nearly as slick as it was so I don't feel like I'm going to drop it.

    That being said, I just ordered a Casemate Tough Case.

    I am getting the white version in the next couple days and I really want to see the white and don't want to cover it with a case... However, I still want to keep it protected. Are there any worthwhile clear cases?? Or does anyone else have any good ideas?

    I have the stock and my son has the white with the white and grey casemate. It is a good case that doesnt cover up the front white areas.

    Just promise not to cry when you drop it! It is a slippery little device and if you can go with dropping it, more power to you!

    Tpu cases are a decent compromise. I generally hate cases but i actually like tpu cases because they are very thin and maintain they original shape of the phone.

    I'm rockin' the SR w/o a case, too. I like the thinness. As long as the screen doesn't get scratched, I'm good. For that, I have a screen protector.

    I think it's necessary to "case it" when you're out and about. I'm too worried about it getting dinged or scratched. But on the other hand, having the white one, it's too beautiful to keep it covered up with my Otterbox Commuter Series case. So on occasion when I'm home, or if I'm showing it to someone for the first time I will take the case off and show it off.

    this phone scratches and damages a lot easier then the original. The glossy back is a scratch magnet and amplifier. I never dropped my phone besides it falling off NY dresser cause of the charger. It hit the side of the wood and got some scratches on the back.

    Some cases I've seen have amazing reviews on Amazon, so they must be decent.
    I been case free with my iPhone for years, i will continue the tradition with this phone. Just don't be stupid or clumsy.
    If your stupid or clumsy then I recommend a case..

    It's pretty damn slippery, so I am considering a case (assuming I actually end up buying one after my demo period is up)

    I would highly recommend using ghost armor if you plan on not using a case. You can see it at Ghost Armor Cell Phone Skins and Cases, Laptop Wraps & Screen Protectors | Ghost Armor. It covers the whole device and can be pretty attractive and prevents scratches and what not without adding bulk.

    Not how I would have put it but agree - I do have a cover on the screen

    I just got a white one a few days ago. I've been using an Otterbox Commuter series case with a Zagg screen protector. The case fits great, is black around the edges so you can still see the white face of the Skyrocket.

    I always put my phone in a protective case. the reason? it will look almost new when I'll be selling it on ebay. and I always sell my phones on ebay when I get new ones.
    also the Skyrocket without a case feels really slippery in the hand and with Diztronic case its just perfect

    +1 When I put pictures of the phone and tell them it has been cased and screen protected from day one you get more bidders and higher sales price! Sold my Captivate, Bold 9700, iphone 3GS for well over $200 each. Worth the investment of a good case IMO! May be selling my Atrix 2 soon if I decide on the Galaxy Note as a back up to my SR.

    Ya my skyrocket is too slick so i had to put a case on it. I got the PowerSkin so i have some grip, protection, and extra battery life.

    You'll be sorry. Three days old dropped once three feet to hard surface, cracked screen no display. Otterbox defender got there three days later. New $599 one is in it. Shop won't have replacement displays for the SR for at least a month.
