    In the 4 days I've had this phone its already been dropped twice which sent the back cover and battery flying both times. Very weak back cover on these phones. I'm thinking there may be a case that helps lock the phone together better. So what do you have? Drop results? Price? Where'd you get it? Post pics too!

    This is the case I have. I bought it on Amazon. It makes the phone look bulky but damn it feels like a tank.

    Amazon.com: Black Heavy Duty Combat Kickstand Case + Atom LED Keychain Light for LG Optimus F3 MS659 (T-Mobile, Metro PCS Versions Only): Cell Phones & Accessories

    I recommend it if you are one of those people constantly dropping the phone.

    i use that one. Have two different colors, dark for winter and bright for summer use. Makes it easier to find phone if you drop it outside. Order from ebay or amazon, much better selection and price than mall vendors.

    Went with the black/black "car armor" which is the one with the vertical stand. Horizontal one is called the advanced. $6.60 was lowest on ebay. Il review it when it arrives if anyones interested.

    So I wanted to post a quick review of this case since I don't think it gets enough attention for the quality piece that it is for a mere $6 and change. You get a nice silicone case that wraps nicely all around the phone and protects it well on all the corners. Then the harder plastic case fits nicely around it, securing it tightly. The buttons for lock and voume are nicely enhanced, allowing extremely easy pressing using the silicone case. You can see these in the pictures. All in all, it is probably one of the best phone cases I've seen based on the amount of protection you'll get. You won't get something similar from just a plain silicone case or a plain hardcase.
    It looks grey because the flash went off, it has a nice black color that matches the phone in not so harsh light.

    Here's some pictures.

    I went with the Incipio case. It is expensive but slimmer than the others and just as good . It has the shock resistant corner with the hard shell outside.

    I actually like the fact that the phone splits apart when dropped. Then all the kinetic energy is dispersed rather than directed to the phone.

    Nice review! My mom had a similar case but for her Activa. The case lasted her a few months then I noticed it began to get loose. Could be the way it was made but my mom probably had something to do with it also xD
