    No it won't fit because the S3 is more rounder. and the Ativ S is more square

    I have personally tried it and it does not fit.
    Like the other poster said the S3 is more rounded and also the ATIV S is slight longer than the S3.
    I know here in Canada the carriers have a gel case for it. I haven't seen one in store but they are available online for purchase

    that is an annoying thing, i want/need a car holder ( device specific, none of this springy grip rubbish ) i cant understand why samsung make every device slightly fatter,thinner, wider, narrower, taller,shorter etc. why they didn't take an S3 shell and stick windows guts in it i don't know?? we'd have all the cases and holders we ever need. i'm sure you don't need 20+ devices that look almost the same but aren't really. i'm sure the holders will come, just another wait. IF i can get the functionallity i need on android i will be swapping phones to an S4 when it's out, or maybe the S3 mini. all depends on the options in quick office pro??

    I've found two decent cases for it. The first is a generic smartphone holster-style leather case with rotatable clip available at The Source in Canada. Don't know how better to describe it, as it is a generic slim holster case with elastic sides and microfiber lining. It's the only holster case I've found that fits the phone snugly with a thin profile (for a holster case).

    The second case I found was a slip case from iGadgitz for pockets/inside the coat. That one is my daily carry case, and can be found here (free shipping from the UK to Atlantic Canada):

    Got this in the mail today, really OK for the price, the casing's sides are a bit sharp on the fingers though.

    Yeah, and when someone calls me by the time I take the phone out of my pocket and out of that pouch/case I missed the call

    I think these are better. Almost identical to the flip ones on the Galaxy SIII which are lovely:

    I'm holding out for an OtterBox myself 😊

    I tried the "gel" one at a Rogers store last night but didn't feel it was worth the money.

    I got the S Line Wave Gel Case Cover For Samsung I8750 Ativ S (being sold at the London Magic Store) here in Ottawa, Canada for $20. I guess you can say I got skinned - the same case at the London Magic Store is 2.90 ($4.58 CDN). - With a Screen protector!!

    Well I got a response from OtterBox...I asked their support if and when we'd see one of their cases for the ATIV S, and they said there are currently no plans to create one :(

    I was disappointed in that...guess they don't see it as a potential big seller :(

    I like the official folio flip cover for galaxy s3. It consists of a replacement back cover with the front flip cover attached. This is great as no extra bulk added to phone. I will see of I can mod the removable back cover of the Ativ s and see if I can attach a cover to that. Will update you guys.

    I've looked at Otterbox, Speck and Casemate and none of them have anything yet for this phone. I settled for the generic "s-wave" skin for now, but offers no real protection. As soon as a decent case is available, I'll snap it up.
    My next phone...

    Biggest thing I'd be worried about with a gs3 case is accidentally triggering the camera/losing access to the camera button. (gs3 has no camera button)

    I got set of 5 silicone cases with 3 screen protectors from ebay (seller is in China) for $11 with free shipping.
    And I am very happy with it. Here is a picture of the blue colour.

    Man, those same cases are $8 a pop on eBay.ca! With no screen protector! I wanted to get more colors too! That blue is sweet.

    Looks like Case-Mate has a new tough case out. Reminds me of the OtterBox case I had for my Motorola Atrix 4G. I'd buy it but the shipping costs (to Canada) make it too expensive.

    I like the look of these ones, seem as close to the S3 flip case as possible, but it looks like it would add a lot of extra bulk to the phone - esp with that "stand flap"

    What do you guys think?
