I will be ordering my iPhone 5 today (finally!!!). I want to get a case for it right away. Does a thin case protect it from falls ok?? I don't like the otter box because if is so bulky!! Thanks in advance!! Also any great tips are welcome!!!

In my opinion no they have an Otterbox that isn't all that bulky my gma just got hers two days ago. It's better than the one I have.

I have an HTC, but dd2 has one and so far a thinner case has worked fine and she's good at dropping it. She didn't like the otterbox either.

Yea, there is quite a difference. Dd likes hers but not as much as she expected to. I've played with hers, but wouldn't trade for it. Hope you enjoy yours though.

They also have the otterboxes on ebay 4 cheap too. I havent seen the new cases yet. Maybe they arent as bulky??

Ellairis sells some hard plastic ones. I have a zebra print one and theyre good at protecting the phone from falls, even to concrete ( assuming the phone falls back first....). I would never get an otterbox when I can save $20 for a cheaper one that protects my phone the same.
