Is what the preferred way?
If your talking about protective skins for the iPhone I just bought this one about 20 minutes ago. Looks and feels great, plus it doesn't take away from the look of the iPhone. It's called the inCase Molder Rubber Case, got it at Apple for $30.

I initially purchased the Incase case. I didn't like the added bulk and the stickiness of getting it in and out of pockets.


Last week I received the Best Skins Ever skin, and am pretty happy with it. I'm likely going to replace the skin that covers the face with the one they sell at Apple. It seems much clearer. I have 3 or 4 dust specs in the BSE cover. Plus, it's just not as clear as past skins I've used.

I love the back cover. It fits perfect, adds some grip-ability, and takes away the worry of scratches, without the bulk.

Did you worry about the process of putting the wet skin on your iPhone? i have the bestskinsever but an a little worried about going through the process and have wetness on the iPhone until it dry's.

You only want to wet it minimally. Just a spritz. The directions tell you to submerse it. It worked better if I just rubbed the water/soap mixture on it. It made it less slippery, dried faster, and left fewer bubbles. I turned my phone on within minutes (which may have been a little dumb) but had no problems.

The corners on the back piece take time, though. You need to constantly fold them down and hold them for 1/2 an hour to an hour until they dry and stick.

I put the bestskinsever on and its ok. It does the job but I'm not really impressed. I already had the jam jacket which holds the headphones in the back. The jam jacket covered everything expect the screen and I already had a nice screen protector on it.

Is there anything else that has a body glove type of material that holds the headphones and has a belt clip? ...too much to ask I guess.

The best skins ever skin is awesome. Get it wet just a little on front then sqeegy the rest of the water out, you wont hurt your phone. The back piece is easy also if you just get everything in place and sqeegy the water out. the sides and corners wont stick well at first. get tips of fingers wet and slide along the pieces that wont stick. don't sqeegy the water out, just let it dry for 30 minutes then press down and it should stick a lot better.

Scratched my chrome bezel all to hell. Traps dirt around the edges. Search the forums for more in this. Some people haven't had the problem, but Apple is giving refunds for them. I had to polish out the scratches after just a couple of days in my pocket with the InCase. YMMV.

Got my BSE skins yesterday and put them on last night.

They are good and do the job but somehow I think I expected more. The screen protector definitely increases the reflectivty of the screen. I know have to hold it at odd angles to make sure I don't get a reflection of the lights over heard. The skin also changes the whole feel of the phone.

I still haven't made up my mind if I like it or not. But at $10 it is definitely worth it.

I think I might replace the screen protector part with something else but leave the back part on. I wonder if the skin will protect against scratching from other cases like the inCase Molder? I would really like something that came in yellow.

of course it would protect it the iPhone from an incase.. lol i like how we need a cover to help us keep scratches from another cover lol..

yes i see what you mean about the screen i think im going to do the same with the crystal from Apple store. at night it was fine but walking under the sun it is noticeable.. still the best 10 bucks spent so far.

Yes, I had this problem. The InCase bites. It scratched my chrome all to h*ll. I returned mine and got a new one, but in case I have this problem again, I am curious: How did you polish out the scratches? What did you use?
