    Sup all, names Fr0st. Joined up cause i've been an off and on visitor to Phandroid off an on the last few year since getting my first smartphone, a Droid X back in Nov of 10. Since then I told evil VZ to piss off and got a Sexy white Galaxy Note 1 in April and been loving it to death until October I was ******ed and dropped in into the bathtub. I had insurance with Asurion but they were gonna charge me freaking $200 deductible to get a refurbished Note 1 and with the Note 2 out now, I simply couldn't justify it.

    After 2 months of head banging and trying to figure how how I was gonna replace my phone and with what, I Found a great salesman at local AT&T store I hadn't visited before who got me a Note 2 yesterday using the not well known "Exception" upgrade through AT&T so I managed to save some money that way and trade in my beloved but water logged Note 1 for some trade it in credit and got a lovely white Note 2 at long last for about $530.

    Sadly, the screen has some stuck pixels that I found last night. But he's already got me a replacement white Note 2 enroute for next week. Now i've been on the hunt in my town and online for a good quality case. I had an otterbox for my Droid X that was good but the rubber was REALLY annoying with attracting all the dust and crap in my pocket. My Note 1 I got from Costco in April so i got a free nice silicon case that did a nice job protecting the phone while still allowing me to enjoy looking at it but couldn't save my Note from the watery depths of the tub.

    I just placed an order with Samsung for one of their cases and then I totally forgot to check what Otterbox had for the Note 2 cases and I couldn't believe it when they had the sweet looking Glacier Otterbox commuter for the Note 2, it looked perfect! A combination of protecting the phone, complete with jack covers as well and nice color look! Now i'm just hoping to find a coupon for free shipping or something cause $45 is kinda ouchy....

    Thanks much, got a Otterbox Commuter Glacier coming for only $35 w/standard shipping from Amazon, only had 6 left! Otterbox woulda been nearly $50 with standard shipping.

    Commuter case should be here sometime week, just in time to get my replacement Note 2 from the store, hopefully with NO stuck pixels. :eek:
