Like A BOSS....Just ordered my Otterbox Defender case on Amazon 49$ with Delivery scheduled for 9/21. I went all in...I've seen Verizon's offerings of off brand cases with decent protection for launch day and the cost 24.99-35.99 without tax. I'll feel better knowing its in an otterbox rather than a brand I don't know. Many people have those cases on at work, haven't heard a bad review. After buying 64GB at 423$ and AppleCare+ 99$ = 522$. Am I really gonna short change the Protection to save 10-12$ buying a cheap case it at Store with Tax. Im not trying to break the bank but I could always sell it if I see a thinner otter case later on.

The 4S was my first iPhone and I wanted maximum protection. I've had the Otterbox Defender on it. But the material is shoddy: the flaps tear off eventually and the home button cover starts to loosen. I'm on my second one and it's getting pretty bad. Great protection, though!
The Lifeproof was one I tried because it was thinner than the Otterbox. But it was unusable due to the space between the case screen and the iPhone screen. Dealbreaker and I didn't even make it out Best Buy's parking lot before I took it back and got the Defender.
Anyway, I'm seriously considering going naked with the iPhone 5 due to how thin it is. I've had my 4S in the case for so long, I can't even remember how it feels naked. I guess it depends on how I feel when I get the actual 5 in my hands. But I am worried about damage as I've dropped the 4S many times.
On the other hand: if you don't have a case, are you more careful and less likely to drop it?! Hmmmm......

Whoa! I had never heard of "Bookbook"! I have been wanting to get rid of my wallet, bigtime! All I really need is my driver's license, credit card, and some cash. It's a real pain to have to remember my wallet all the time, especially in MN when the weather changes a lot and I sometimes leave it in a jacket etc.
I'll have to look into the Bookbook. For y'all that have one, what are the main drawbacks? Do you lose functionality of the iPhone in any way, e.g., does it slow you down?

Perhaps I spaced it out and didn't see those instructions, but I'm usually a bit anal about troubleshooting something like that--especially in this case (pun intended) because I couldn't fathom anyone would put out a product that defective.

I just picked up an Incipio DualPro at the local Verizon store. They had Otterbox Defenders there, too, which look good but I decided to go with something more simple for now and get the Defender or something else, later, pending reviews and what else might appear in the next few weeks.

Is there a case besides Seidio Surface that works with a holster? You have to buy the holster from Seidio as well. But I need the holster. I don't want to stuff the phone in my pocket.
People have praised Incipio Feather and Speck here. How are those better than the Seidio Surface?

Corporate discount for me. I got the screen protectors from Verizon as well as that incipio dual pro case. I like the case and I can live with that screen protector for now. I really liked that 3M natural view one I had on the 4s. I'll wait for it to come out on 5. Also, if incipio makes a NGP case for 5, I will be getting that too.
