Sent from my Galaxy S3 using neighbors wifi :P
i had this issue too...my bottom edge wouldn't stay on at all the usb area was bubbled up like your's but worse and all the corners were coming loose like yours. The only thing i didn't have is i still have the usb port cover i've had mine since about 2wks after the s3 came out.
I ran across a video on youtube about a kid with an otterbox iphone case and he put the case into a pan of boiling water for 5min (minimum) then pulled it and let it cool and it had returned to its natural size.
I was skeptical,but figured it couldn't hurt to try it. I took it one step further. After i boiled the outer rubber case, i took it and put it directly into the freezer and left it in there for about 20min (till good and hard/froze). Took it back out, ran it under warm tap water till it was flexible again and put it back on. It's as tight now as it was the day i got it.
I don't think the boiling/(and or freezing) thing actually shrinks the rubber, i more think it realigns all the molecules and lets them return to their natural (unstretched) state. (that coming from what little i remember of college physics and chemistry)
either way can't hurt to try and at the least you get a very clean cover to put back on.
I guess i can't post links yet (too noobish...whatever) search youtube for "shrink otterbox silicone case" it should be the first result.
I appoligize in advance for the guys lack of taste in music and his commentary sounding like he is 12.
I'm curious as to how many times you can get a replacement? I'm currently on my third replacement due to the corners of the rubber coming off. Even tried changing colors in case maybe a certain color was causing issues to no avail. I have to admit their customer support kicks major booty but their product sucks. What's the next step or level down in protecting and such from the otterbox defender that isn't made by otterbox?
