    Do they have any cases for this phone yet? Even a silicone case? I searched Google and ebay and found nothing.

    Got this phone for my wife yesterday and found some cases at the local Sprint store. They had a two pack silicone (purple and black).

    I'm using the body glove leather pouch from Radio Shack - just a generic case, but it fits it like a glove...no pun intended. sku CRC 90951.

    Those are the only two options I know of at this point. The dual pack of gel cases (one black one purple i think) and then the black body glove. I picked up the body glove for my daughter and it fits great. I am sure she will be jonesing for "PURDIER" ones though.

    Lol. The purple silicone one sounds fine, for now at least. Now I think I'm going to wait for the purple phone to come out before I decide. Thanks!

    I've been to and called a number of Sprint stores (including a corporate store) and Radio Shacks and even a Best Buy and can't find the silicone cases. Most places didn't even have the phone yet. The only place I have found it is sprint.com and I refuse to spend $30 on two cases of which I will only use one. So do I basically have to keep calling Sprint stores until I find one that has them?

    I've called about a dozen stores and still can't find the cases. They all said "soon" or "should have them next week". Ugg! I'm going to drop my phone I know it....

    Yay! I found a store that has the cases! I have to go to Lawrence, MA but I found them! lol ;) And it's a corporate store so I get 25% off for Premier status right?

    You have to buy 2 accessories to get 25% off.

    I bought my Hero the day it was released & there were no cases specifically for it. I had to settle for a generic case that Sprint had in the store. Luckily though, it wasn't long before companies starting making them specifically for the Hero. I have a Seidio case (seidioonline.com) for my Hero & I love it. I checked their website & they don't have one for the Optimus S YET. Hopefully soon but I'm totally with you in your fear of dropping your "naked" phone! :)

    I ordered a Hero case from this website LG Optimus S LS670 cases Store - Fommy.com prior to my Seidio case. Great service, I just found a better case with Seidio. But they do have the jelly silicone cases & some other accessories for the Optimus S.

    Some might think it ugly, but for me and the job I do, its the best out there at a good price. Working in law enforcement you need something that can take a hit or drop and spare the phone and the gel (silicone) ones just dont do it for me. Would love to find some more rugged cases, any suggestions?

    I think the OP-S looks pritty neat without the case, especially the Body being a good feel rubbery.

    Rather a case how bout a skin?

    the Sprint corp store yes 30 plus, no thank ou, you must buy two of the lowest price items and then the case you get 25%. adding that up it's tax free. no thank you.
    I am a Primeir Customer as well. and even the CS on phone states only 2 items purchased not three, it's called a sales Pitch.

    Oneday they'll again offer a bundle pkg. since we're handsfree, they left out the most importance a headset?

    Would like to report that the "ugly" case I mentioned above potentially saved me already. I dropped my Optimus face down on the road and thanks in part to the case the phone survived unscathed, very happy so far with the case....
