Hey guys I'm fairly new to the forum but not iPhones. Just looking for opinions I am looking to purchase the Id America ice case for the i4s or the trexta wood on leather case. The Id case I like because it's clear so you can see the iPhone (I really prefer no case at all but trying to come up with a happy medium here) my main concern there tho is the clear case showing scratches. Anybody have any experience with this case? The trexta I'm just mainly looking for ideas on brand quality as I know it offers little to no protection. Sorry for the long winded post and thanks in advance!

Those are nice. I like to see the phone as well. What I have been doing is putting a front and rear screen protector on from powersupportusa.com and using a bumper of my choice. Protected all around and minimal bulkness.

Are you using the Apple bumpers or another brand?

Have you used the Apple bumper as well? How do they compare?

I do have both. I prefer the SGP because its a 2-piece. The rubber piece that goes on first and the the plastic band you slide over it. You can also purchase color bands for $10 instead of $30 for a whole new bumper.

The SGP rubber part does get a little loose but the plastic part keeps it nice and tight.

Thanks for the info. I do like how you can change the color out for only $10. I always wanted more Apple bumpers for some variety, but 1, wouldn't pay the price and 2, they're colors are pretty fruity

Anyone know of a good bumper clear case or aluminum? I have a hits 4s and hate to cover it completely.

Thx
