    He's asking for cases, not screen protectors.

    For now, look for Galaxy S cases. I don't know of any good cases so cannot help you there. The Vibrant is .03 mm wider than the Galaxy S, so the cases made for the Galaxy S should be okay.

    Yes they do but you said Invisible Shield and That my friend is a screen protector.

    Actually they don't even make cases.

    They make skins of which aren't the same as a case.

    OK, last post on this. As an example:

    ZAGG | invisibleSHIELD | Samsung Galaxy S i9000 Cases, Screen Protectors, Covers, Shields, Skins, Invisible Shield

    includes three different things under the name Invisible Shield: a screen protector, a "full body easy install" mostly case, and a "full body maximum protection" model which is a true case.

    Thats still not a case thats a full body Screen and Scratch Protector.

    The only thing that'll do is keep it looking good and prevent unwanted scratches that's not going to do much protecting like a case does if you say accidentally drop it.

    A case is either a hard body or soft body removable protector that will keep the phone from actually breaking if dropped once or multiple times. The full body maximum protection is more like a Skin.

    Here is an example of a case http://www.accessorygeeks.com/samsu...m_source=google&utm_medium=comparisonshopping

    Oh and to actually answer this post currently there are no samsung vibrant cases. I suggest waiting a month or two after its released to look for cases because thats usually the time when they make em.

    Well actually Amzer appears to be the only one right now.

    If you don't mind paying premium for a leather or silicone case, then you can get the Zenus cases on ebay. It's for the original SGS, but should also fit in the Vibrant since there is only a .03 mm difference in width.

    I called several T-Mos in my area, and none of the reps that I talked to could tell me for sure if there would be Vibrant cases in stock tomorrow at launch. AAAaargh!

    Does anyone know who sells those brushed metal cases, like for the MyTouch and iPhone? Anyone know the kind I'm talking about? They're thin so they don't add a lot of bulk...I like those...Hopefully I can find one for the Vibrant.

    I picked up the silicone case from T mobile when I bought my phone and I actually really like it. Good grip, good protection, not too bulky, kinda cool texture, and it fits like a glove.

    If you are looking for cases made by other manufacturers you might need to wait a week or so.

    I have two cases that I found and are my favorite as of now.

    One case is a TPU rubber skin that is stiffer than silicone but real flexible and doesn't peel off the phone as easy as silicone and doesn't collect any dirt like the ladder. Here is a link:

    This next case is my most favorite and really makes the phone look unique. It is harder than the TPU style case but still flexible. It snaps on the phone like a hard case but is soft to resist scuffing the chrome. It comes in 4 colors and fits the Vibrant like a glove. Luckily T-Mobile was smart and kept the original design for the most part. This is a Samsung Case:

    The T-Mobile ones are $16.99 and are silicone which I can't stand. They stick to my pocket every time I try to take it out and it takes the lint with it... lol

    It's annoying until the first time you almost drop it. I hated it on my blackberry until I realized how many times it saved my phone.

    The first one isnt showing up, auction was removed I guess. The second one would be awesome if it covered the top and bottom edges of the phone. If you drop it, it's most likely gonna hit on one of the edges, I wouldnt want to leave them uncovered.

    Okay, I posted another link to the other case. BTW I thought the same thing at first with it not being covered but when you get it on in person they are covered. The way it is designed the only way it would strike one of those corners is if you dropped it and there was a rock. It covers the back side of the corners and makes it impossible to hit the corner when dropped. You can lay the phone down any way you want and it won't touch. The other one I posted below is like the standard silicone but made out of the TPU which is smoother, harder, doesn't collect lint, but still is grippy.
