    You have a range of "toughness" to select

    Seidio has a new case coming out for the SIII that is supposed to be waterproof and dust proof with a built in screen protector and camera lens protector. Check it out @ www.seidio.com

    That looks nice. I hope it doesn't cost too much..... Feels weird dropping $80 for a phone case.

    I got the Acase Superleggera at Amazon for $15 and I'm very happy with it.. Amazon.com: Acase Samsung Galaxy S3 Case - Superleggera PRO Dual Layer Protection (Black/Black) (Fits AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon): Cell Phones & Accessories

    Dual layer, inner case covers buttons that are easy to use, outer case comes in a variety of colors and fits very nicely. It does add a little more bulk to the phone but it's also protecting it. I've had a couple of drops where the phone landed face down without any damage to the phone or case. And as you can see, many good reviews from other customers too

    Got my phone on Sunday....was planning on getting a case tomorrow....phone popped out of my chest pocket, landed on it's back. Screen shattered. The digitizer still works, but it's going to cost me $329 to get it fixed. Tough lesson for me, but with my track record with phones, it's par for the course. Those of you that are "just thinking" about getting a case.....I HIGHLY recommend it. Worst part is I didn't get mine at a Bell Mobility store, and I didn't have a chance to get into one to get the accidental damage insurance. I need a beer or 3. Other than that...I love this phone

    mate..... take out online insurance, report your phone lost/stolen to police, get incident number and make insurance claim.
    ive done it several times.
    get expensive insurance with a very low (cant remember what americans call it but we call it "excess"... is it "deductable"?)
    do that mate. dont report it as broken or you wont get a brand new phone.... say it was in a zipped coat pocket and when you went to use it, it was gone good luck bro

    I tried a defender and am considering returning it bc it constantly gets dust under the screen protector.

    Do you guys have that issue and has anyone just removed the built in?

    Thanks all

    I have the same issue. Also the device doesn't have a good fit inside the case. This is why I'm going to get the new case from Seidio for the S3.

    I just came to Android from BlackBerry units. I am really bad with phones too. I got a defender case for this but I know that GS III is not the same sock proof unit as the Bold 9900 with smaller screen.

    Well, I don't feel sorry for the insurance companies. At least not for the Canadian insurance criminals anyway. I have a Defender case too but I don't feel bad about using insurance companies anyway possible.

    I have an OB Defender and love it. I had already installed a Zagg HD screen protector so I removed the Defender screen protector as soon as I got it. The combination of the two work really well. I got my Defender on Amazon for $30.

    BTW the screen protector built in to the Defender is really easy to remove. Lightly push on the top and bottom, then peel it out. I don't think it would take too much to put it back in either.

    I went ahead and bought myself a Otterbox Commuter. It's less bulky than the Defender and it actually feels great to hold (makes the phone more grippy) and it actually LOOKS awesome.
