Just a friendly reminder from the site admin -- we've got a review system in place here at EIP. As members, you can rate cases based on a variety of criteria. Additionally, you can your reviews. If you don't see a case listed, I'm adding the capability for members to add new items and then review them. For example, the iSee case mentioned in this thread. It's not currently in the iPhone Accessory Reviews directory, but as members you can easily add and review.

I'm hoping to build a central review resource for everyone in the iPhone community here at EIP. Check out the system, it's pretty slick.

Cases and confusion

I bought three cases when I bought two phones. One case is the
"Slim fit Case" from Belkin. Nice case, easy & simple to use, and was 29.99. Next is the "Hip Case" by DLO. It places the iPhone sideways and has velcro on the closure. Its a great device holder, simple, and easy to use, safe and padded as well, and it came with free downloads as typical with DLO products, was only 29.99.
Because I cant seem to get a straight answer from Apple, or AT&T as to rather the Magnetic closure would damage the iPhone, I have choosen to wait for a case with one. Does anyone have any idea if the magnetic closure could damage the iPhone?
Lastly the "Signature Leather Case" by Case Mate. You can hardly get the iPhone out of it once its in, although it is made to stay on the phone, you still like to take the phone out sometimes. Its great protection for bumps and knocks from the corners, but the screen is totally unprotected. I don't like the way the belt clip screws in to the back, as well as the 34.99 price tag. Too pricey for what it doesn't do. Protect the front screen!
The Slim Fit Case and the hip case, are keepers, the other will be returned.
Would like to find a nice easy to open case, with room for a couple of crdit cards , but doesn't hurt the screen. also when are screen protectors going to be available? Anyone know?
Thanks everyone!

I got the incase molded rubber case (black). It's great! It's sleek, feels nice, and seems to protect everything except the front. For that I'm getting an Invisible Shield. I don't think there's better scratch protection out there - for iPhone or iPod.

I chose not to get a case because they didn't have the Speck holster I was looking for. If you do have a case post what you have and a quick review. I need something to protect this baby. Pictures and links are great too!

This is the one I am waiting for....

Well you may NOT need as much protection as you think, considering how tough the iPhone seems to be according to PC World, which put their iPhone through a torture test ( warning: some of the footage is hard to watch!). Check it out, it's pretty impressive to say the least:

Belkin acrylic case

I picked up the Belkin acrylic case at the AT&T store when I bought my iPhone. I love it. It's clear and made of sturdy plastic. It fits the iPhone quite snugly, which I was hoping for. I've had some iPod cases that were just a little too big and the iPod sort of had some "swimming" room in them. Not the case with this case. The best option is the clip. I don't plan to use the clip as a clip, because I've never been one to wear a phone on my belt. The clip is completely removable, but you won't want to chuck it ... it doubles as a little prop when swiveled and opened so that you can sit the iPhone on a desk or other flat surface to watch videos. Pretty cool. I paid $24.99 at AT&T; the Apple online store is charging $29.99.

On a side note, I also bought the Griffin PowerJolt, which is a car charger for the iPhone and iPods. It comes with a lighter plug, USB charge//sync cable and a USB-to-mini-USB cable for use with the Griffin iTrip. I don't think it was worth the $29.99 I paid at AT&T. Apple is charging $19.99 for the same thing. I don't plan on driving anywhere where a good charge before I leave isn't going to be enough. The iPhone seems to have a great battery life.

Here's a link to a review of the Belkin acrylic case:

Does this case have a hole so the speakers can breathe? either way it looks like a sweet case
yes the speakers are able to be heard and the headphone jack is exposed to...people have been jealous....it is one sweet case and is very light too...like i said, when you sit down or driving, not a bother what so ever...$40 bucks but i believe worth it

What kind of clip does it have on the back? I didn't see any pics of the back on their website.
It does look sweet!

Does anyone know of an iPhone case that will allow you to place it into the dock without having to remove it from the case?

I purchased the InCase Molded Rubber case and I like it, I just don't want to have to remove it from the case if I put it in a dock, iHome player, in car tuner, etc.

Thanks.

Hey Otto-
That's a tough call. In looking at the dock, the iPhone sits pretty securely in place. I'm not sure if any case would be able to do that.:confused: You peruse a number of cases that we have set up in our review section. The only option I'm thinking would be the Invisible Shield or similar product.

Welcome to Everything iPhone!;)
