Default Best Cases

What cases do you all prefer for the Prevail? The last case I bought was very loose fitting and disappointing. I need it to be a perfect fit!

Thanks.

Check out Amazon. I picked up a black hard case that fits perfect back in June for $5 and free shipping.

I prefer silicone cases. I have hardwood floors and have dropped my phone several times.

A silicone case doesnt break and keeps protecting my Prevail.

i bought a silicone case as well but from ebay. not like the amzer, just a generic black silicone case. probably saved me on more than one occasion. kinda loose now though, but hasn't fell out yet. came with one of those plastic screen protectors as well. i forget how much i paid for it, but it should have been reasonably cheap.

Got a simple black rubber glove case from Radio Shack when i got the phone. Was regular $15 but was half off with the phone purchase. Very snug fit and very worth it.

OtterBox Defender like case. I found this one about 4 months ago. been using it ever since. Hard plastic case with rubber skin fitting over it. Made really well, fits perfect, not to bulky, best protection out there. They have serveral different colors and comes with a belt-clip holster. Silicone skin just wont do it for me. I am an electrican and I am often in extream conditions. (dust, heat, rain) and this case has taken a beating. I even droped from the top of a 12ft. Ladder(not on purpose) onto concreate and it didnt even phase the case or the phone. Phone is still like new without a scratch. Glad I found it cause I wouldn't be able to have a touchscreen phone without it and otterbox doesnt make a case for our prevails.

here's a nice case for anyone needing rugged construction case. I feel like if I dropped my phone 10 feet it would probably be ok inside this case. It's a hard, two-piece shell with a soft rubber outer shell. The outer shell isn't sticky. It incorporates a clear acrylic sheet for protecting the front from scratches and dust.With this two-piece case I can just keep my phone in my pants pocket or shirt pocket during work. (i weld by the way and I think this case is enough to keep out the sparks.Amazon.com: USA Gear Rugged Impact-Absorbing Dual Layer Protective Case With Built-In Screen Protector for Samsung Galaxy Prevail (Black/Grey) **Includes Micro USB Charge Cable**: Electronics
