    I will go naked, without insurance :) I hate the concept of having something between me and my phone, particularly screen protectors and cases. I act like the phone is my child and take extra care of it, as opposed to some people who complain about having cracked screens when it's their own fault they dropped it!

    P.S. I've even taken my Thunderbolt on roller coasters to record video and not dropped it...!

    Same here! Simplicity at its best. I'm just curious as to how big this phone is already going to look and feel in person.

    Naked. No doubt. I hate cases and screen protectors.

    I had insurance on the OG, and I'll probably keep it for the Nexus. $7 a month plus a $99 deductible... probably worth it. I'd be paying $168 over two years plus the $99 deductible if I ended up needing it.... still a lot less than purchasing a new phone full retail.

    Unless you are constantly breaking your phones, Insurance just doesn't make any sense money wise.

    I just logged in to post the exact same thread that you just started! I wanted to know if otterbox had something up there sleeves, the commuter cases are always a treat. For the most part, I have kept all my phones naked but I think for the first few months I'm going to be too paranoid for anyone to even touch my new nex-baby.

    I've had good luck with not breaking my phones for the most part but I like to have the insurance just in case

    I will keep my naked but with an invisible shield on the back and front . I'll buy a case that only will go on the phone when I know I'll be going out and getting trashed haha that's what I've done with all my other phones

    A tpu just like I used for my evo. Even though the size difference of lte/cdma was finally announced, I am hesitant to buy any of the tpu cases listed on ebay. Although, it would be nice to have a case the day of the release... whenever that may be.

    this is the first phone I want a case for because I do not like the looks of the phone it is a typical Samsung plastic beaut. So with a case its sexy and powerful and stock ICS!!

    definitely going with a TPU/resin style case here. i have used them since my first BB storm and love them. they are easy to take on and off, don't pick up all the lint in your pocket a la silicone, and add very little width/weight to the phone. there is no way i will be picking one up at verizon though. i can't believe they charge $20 for them when you can pick up an identical one on ebay/amazon for $5. while it may not be worth much in 2 years, i am kind of OCD about my phone and having scratches on it would bother ME. i don't really care what the next user may think, although i am sure they will appreciate it.

    Case and screen protector. I'll buy the protector from Verizon so I have it on immediately (hate, HATE scratches on my screen) and I may check out a clear "skin" type case for the phone, or a thin plastic case. Just want to keep it immaculate.

    I work in construction, so I'm hoping Otterbox will make a Defender case for this phone. When I'm not at work, the case comes off.
