Case wise, I opted for the Rock Quicksand. Much sturdier than the original back and keeps the back and sides from getting scuffed and scratched. If you're after something heavy duty look elsewhere. This is a very slim, very durable case. I'll probably look for a leather flip case at some point, but until then this will do very nicely.

Screen protector wise, I went for the invisibleSHIELD. Mainly because the phone arrive way earlier than anticipated and I didn't feel comfortable walking around with it completely naked and this was the most readily available one to me. There are other recommended brands, but I can't recall off the top of my head. Think I've got a thread here somewhere with people offering some brands.
One thing I will say is steer clear of the cheap stuff, Zagg's invisibleSHIELD comes with a lifetime warranty so anything goes wrong just get a replacement. It also looks pretty damn good. I only ever notice it;s on if I look at the top or bottom or really look for the orange peel effect. The latter is only really noticeable if you really look for it in the right light.

I've had mine for 4-5 days now and I'm still learning things that it can do but I'm loving it a lot so far. The camera is just amazing, the screen is beautiful and spacious, overall its very responsive and the battery life blows my previous Optimus S out of the wa
The accuweather widget seemed broken. It said it was 88 when it was 96, that was based on allowing it to 'pull from my location' instead of using the zip code to get the correct one. I'm guessing that its possibly pulling from some school or somewhere that maybe doesn't keep a guage out in the sun, not sure.
Also, I'm on Sprint and I'm only getting 3G, not 4G. I went into the store here in Austin and the lady said the phone is 4G LTE only, is that right? Seems I'm stuck with slow loading youtube videos until October when 4G LTE will finally roll out. *shucks*
I'm also a little perplexed why Sprint chose Oklahoma City over Austin for the LTE rollout. That just seems silly considering how much of a techie city we are. We're called The Silicon Hills for a reason.

I work for sprint amid we rolled lte out in 5 cities on June 15. One of which was Houston. It's rumored that San Diego and New jersey are round 2.

I just switched to sprint in january and i am already ready to leave thm due to no 4G here in sd. Luckily they have unlimited data keeping me around.

It really sucks because my SGS2 is not even LTE compatible i think.

Do they make an otterbpx for the S3 yet? If so get that IMO.

Yes the S3 only has a LTE radio so it will only switch to 4G if you have access to a 4G LTE Network .

um the verizon version and sprint one carry CDMA 3G radios too
sprint version has
LTE 1900
CDMA 800 / 850 / 1900

Verizon ones have
LTE 750
CDMA 850 / 1900
GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900

so in theory whenever verizon releases the unlock, verizon's phone will become a global phone.

Actually, sprint plans to start LTE on the 800mhz and 1900mhz band as the voice and 3G are currently on the 1900mhz until the network vision is complete. Once it's done, LTE should be running on both the 800 and 1900, and a few years later on the 2500mhz that is currently wi-max based.

In the end the goal is to have all 3 bands carry LTE, voice and 3G for best coverage, though the 2500mhz is up in the air and I havent gotten much info on that.

What this phone supports in the end is what will matter though, along with where you live 8P.

im just quoting what the hardware specs say the phone supports that i pulled from phonescoop.

Either way, that's sprints plan for the future, as of right now their LTE is only 1900 band and in very few cities

Majority of their customers with S3's are on their CDMA 3G

Or is there a Google Play Store consequence from installing a custom ROM? Finally, which ROM should I go with? I still need Flash...

That's a good question about Flash. I'm not sure how HTML5 is going to take over when some websites clearly still haven't implemented it. I guess in the mean-time while this happens, Jelly Bean devices will experience the Internet in "iOS glory", i.e. with no Flash support.

As for backing up savegame files, you need Titanium Backup. The free version of the App will do the job just fine if you don't mind only having 1 backup as history for each App you back up and don't mind not being able to sync to Dropbox or Drive. The Pro has other features but these are the most prominent to my uses. Anyway, in Titanium Backup, configure it so it backs up all the external data of Apps and also the Apps' cache. Also enable the option at the top that syncs Titanium Backup's settings with your device (to save the configuration). Once done, configure your backup location on your MicroSD card and voila. Select your game from the list and create a backup. This backup contains the actual game and its data (including savegame data). When you flash a new custom ROM, reinstall Titanium Backup and your game will be listed there. If the game is installed by Play Store automatically, uninstall it and then just restore your backup of it (App + Data). This way you only install the game as per your backup and not a fresh install like Play Store will do. You're done - start the game and it's like you left it before flashing the custom ROM.
