Are any of you guys carrying your iPhone in your pocket with NO CASE?

Same here. Ever since I've been using smartphones, I've always kept them in my left front pants pocket, and just made sure to keep keys, pens, coins and anything else that could scratch the phone in my other pocket.

I went to the Apple store and tried every one of the cases they had available, but I didn't like any of them enough to pull the trigger. I had a Vaja for my Treo 750 that I really liked, but so far it doesn't look like Vaja has anything other than pouch-type cases for the iPhone. I'm going to give the accessory market a little time to catch up, and hopefully I'll find something I like when there are more options available.

Yep -- tried three cases and didn't like them. I keep the device alone in my right front pocket. It's a first for me, as nothing up til this point has been slim enough to get away with it.

I'm going to do it this way for the foreseeable future. My next accessory will be the Apple bluetooth headset.

I purchased the CLEAR Belkin one from my local AT&T store. It really is nice as it fully encases the iPhone (except the entire front)...it has holes for all the necessary slots. Being clear it is hardly noticeable and will definitely protect the phone once WE ALL have that dreaded DROP of our phones to the pavement..ouch.....I think it was like $25 but well worth it.

Oh yeah..comes with a removeable clip and the clip actually can be positioned while on your desk so that your iPhone kind of sits like a photo frame...pretty cool

Here's the link...check it out

We don't even say, "Drop the iPhone...."

No case here either. I would get one, if I could just find a clip that I liked. but so far I've looked at everything available and just nothing seem right.

I was carrying my phone around with no case until today... I finally got my molded rubber InCase, its so much better than the trashy plastic Belkin one I bought at the AT&T store.

I've been carrying mine around in my left front jeans pocket without any case. I tried to buy the InCase cover in black yesterday, but my local Apple store was out of stock (only had red and grey) and my local AT&T store has never heard of this case.

Anyhoo, I actually switched from my normal routine of carrying my phone in my right front pocket to the left front pocket because I didn't want the coin pocket rivet on my Levi's scratching the screen :)

I'll keep searching for the black InCase protective cover.

Everytime I buy a new gadget I buy a case that I use for about 1 day then I realize you can't fully appreciate the design when its got a case on it. I just keep it in my pocket with no other items in there. If need be I have a leather belt holster from my dash that the iPhone fits nicely in.

Sometimes I wish I was a woman so I could carry around a purse. That way I wouldn't have to worry about the rivets on my jeans scratching my phone :(

but oh well...so many more perks being a guy overall :D

Any time I've ever tried one of those holster/belt jobs, I find myself catching it on everything - the arm rest of my desk chair, the seat of my car, you name it.

I'll probably try an Incase in black if I can find one. Like someone in an earlier post, my local Apple store only has gray & red in stock.
