maybe its just me but if my iPhone can withstand the trecherous pocket with nothing in it, then its not even worth having..

sure theres alwasy the risk of dropping and damaging it, but im just damn careful i don't drop it. i only put it in a case if im going to the gym, otherwise its needlessly bulky

Same for me - I don't use a case and the iPhone is fine. I am careful to be sure that the pocket that it goes into has nothing else in it, not even a Kleenex (don't want to get the iPhone all dusty).

I go caseless as well. I keep it in my pocket with nothing else. I almost dropped it today at the coffee house. I bobbled it up into the air and caught it about a foot from the floor. The guy next to me looked at me, then at the phone and said good catch with a look of horror on his face.

I used to keep it in the iSee clear case but now I just bought a skin for it and keep it on a holster probably just pockets once I install the skins

I have a Belkin Slim-Fit case...

I love it.

my past phones have looked like crap due to not using a case so I think I'll leave this one in this case for a while... =]

I'm not a complete spaz, so I don't keep it in a case. I treat it like it's a $600 piece of expensive equipment which helps me from acting like a herky-jerky freak and dropping it (just watch... I'll drop it tomorrow *knocks on wood*)

Belkin clear case was scratching the chrome bezel, so now go caseless. Bestskinsever will arrive shortly to help protect it.

Right now I am caseless. I want to get one, but I haven't seen any I like yet. I try to be careful, but I have already dropped it a few times. It slips put of my hands easily. Im holding out for the iskin revo.

I just put mines in the side way pouch I had bulky cases as well but, I do need a place to put it. In the pass I tend to put my phone in my lap while in the car then i'd forget it was there and you know what happened when i went to get out... So I always need a holster.

I have a CaseMate Signature case due to show up any day now. For the time being, I've been using the pouch my 60Gb iPod came with. It's a good fit and protects the phone while in my pocket.

I'm not using a case, currently. I haven't dropped the phone once, either. Although, I would like to get one of these:

Incase Molded Rubber Case

Anyone used this product, and how does it fair? One of the reviews on the site says it scratched up the chrome rim around the phone.....confirm? deny?

:laugh2:

Confirm. That seems to be a problem of any of the surround cases. If any debris from your pocket gets into the case, it scratches the iPhone.

Incidentally, incase was aware of the issue as it's stated on their product info that it needs to be periodically cleaned to avoid scratches.

The fundamental issue I have with going caseless is that in my line of work I don't wear jeans. And given the mass of the iPhone, it would have a tendency to slide out of my pocket when sitting/standing. The worst case (pun not intended) scenario for that is entering/exiting a car. The iPhone has a rather smooth finish with little friction.

I got the incase protective case just to keep it sliding out of my pocket. But I now do my laundry with my pockets turned out. ;)

Seems like it would be better to just keep it naked, then.
I'd rather the "chance" of scratches, in case I drop it, than "definite" scratches, if I put it in a case that's supposed to stop that.
