Going to be getting the T-Mobile's sim card too. Any cases that you guys recommend?
Mine has been naked since day one, imo, it's just too sexy of a phone to cover up. I've got Insurance on it though so I'm not concerned with breakage
First, you may want to look into getting an extended battery; I bought the 2100 mAh battery through my carrier (Verizon). However, if you end up getting an extended battery, a good case is EXTREMELY hard to come across. Hardly any good cases out there snugly fit with an extended battery installed. Without the extended battery, I would say the best looking and smallest added size case out is the Seidio Active. In terms of protection, it supposedly gets about the same protection as an Otterbox Commuter. However, because I got the extended battery, I went with the Diztronic Rev 3 and it's been great. It's hardly noticeable that it's on the phone, yet gives the phone a solid feel. Plus it's cheap, too!
Pretty sure that if you break your phone and ask for a replacement, you have to pay a $100 deductible. In my opinion it's alot cheaper to just fix it yourself or have an outside vender do it for you. Also, that's assuming "breakage" as cracking the digitizer. Unless you spill something on the phone, breaking the internal components would be pretty difficult to do.
Please note that the GSM and Verizon variants of the Nexus use different extended batteries & back covers so please ensure you are ordering the correct one (OP needs a GSM version) before pulling the trigger.
Also I really like my TPU case (linked below) which fits perfectly fine with the extended battery in.
I picked up one of the Cruzer Lite covers for about $10 on Amazon (link below). It fits the device well and the added thickness is not so much that it hinders carrying it in my pocket.

True but still its just like when you love your six pack so much that you cover it with fat lol
That is why I'm getting a case and maybe invisible shield?
Oh that's right we get a lower capacity battery :/
I run my GNex naked with no screen protector. It feels too good in your hand to cover it up with a nasty case. I cannot speak highly enough of the Seidio spring clip holster. I've used them on my last three phones. AND it will work with the extended battery with no problem.
This is the case I currently use on my GSM galaxy nexus and fits great and is around $10 and its worth it!

Depending on your level of clumsiness (most clumsy to least clumsy):
Diztronic Matte black flexible case

Pretty sure the Otterboxes accomodate an extended batt, not certain re: Diztronic case.
My $0.02: I got an Otterbox defender case as I'm fairly clumsy but I also agree with the poster who said it is too sexy a phone to cover up. My solution has been to keep it nakes during the week, then wrap it up on the weekends or when I go out drinking. So far so good!
Just a note for you guys. You can pull the foam out of the otterbox defender and it fits b etter with the extended battery on the stock rear cover.
Thanks guys for your responses I'll give a shot to the Diztronic case. And I'll look for a extended battery.
