Default Case for Sprint Galaxy Tab 3 7.0?

Apparently I've been told by Samsung that they don't make ANY cases for this model (SM-T217S) expect for the official (and pricy) Samsung case. I know that's not true because I had a gel case on it that I got from Sprint when I bought it. All the cases I see on Amazon are for different model number of it. Any ideas or suggestions?

As long as it's y the same size case, it will work regardless of Samsung model number, I got mine for the WiFi version at best buy and it fits with no issues

Stuck with an iPhone 5s (64GB) until Android can support 128gb SD Cards (Stupid large music library and severe Music ADD). But I do have a Galaxy Tab 3 through Sprint to keep my Robot fix strong.

Nope, I got a case for 7 inch tablets and it didn't fit. I did manage to find on Amazon I liked.

The Moko UltraSlim case works perfect on the Sprint version. I think the Sprint version is the only 7" Tab 3 with the IR Blaster, and the Moko UltraSlim has a cutout for the IR Blaster. I've had a Moko UltraSlim on my '13 Nexus 7 since that tablet was released and it still looks/functions perfectly, so I was happy to see that Moko made one for the 7" Tab 3 as well.

Also, if you're looking for a screen protector, I highly recommend TechMatte! You get a 3 pack for around $4 or $5, lifetime warranty, edge to edge coverage, and they look and feel like bare glass! I've used them on various devices and they've been my favorite since I first used one. My previous favorite was Ghost Armor which are $30 for only 1 screen protector and they aren't as nice looking/feeling as TechMatte.
