    I have have had my iPhone 5 for a bit of time now and I have decided to get a case for it. I have looked online for a bit now but I wanted to get the recommendations from everythingicafe on what is good thin iPhone 5 case. I want a case that is not bulky and that won't scratch you the sides of the phone as i have the black version of the iPhone 5. What case would meet my criteria?

    I hope that's true, but I'm very hesitant as they said the same thing with the last iPhone case. I'll believe it when it happens. ;)

    Now that I am getting my phone today (and my wife's) I am caseless! WTH?

    Procrastination will get you everywhere son!

    May just get a Specky Candy Shell for the time being until I can decide. I want something cool like an Elements case but they're dragging their feet except for the Sector 5 which I'm not crazy about.

    Thanks to all of you for confusing me to no end about this case issue. :p :p :p

    BTW...what's up with AT&T? In their store they have the Speck Candy Shell for $38. Best Buy has the same for $34. What?

    Maybe I'll just save money by not driving across town to save 3¢ on gasoline and waste it instead on the more expensive case... :D

    Casemate "barely there", Incipio "feather" or the Spigen "Ultrathin Air"...

    All nice, thin, low profile cases for the 5. I bought the Barely There from Casemate but it is not the same as the one for the 4(s) and it has a lip that can get annoying. I have the Spigen case on its way now and will report back with pics and a review when I get it on my phone.

    Ya those prices are pretty ridiculous. Try Amazon. That's where I got my case from. It's thin and does the trick until they release more.

    I have the case mate barely there and like it. However it won't fit in my pro clip car holder.
    Decided to go no case at all

    I have got a iPhone 5 flip case from jisoncase. I am planing to write a review for it. It seems seldom people use their case. Maybe i am the unique one.

    Very happy with my Diztronic TPU case that I got on Amazon for around $11. Very slim, provides decent protection and looks great.

    We wanted our company name on our phones so we found case-monkey dot com and were able to download logo and pictures. Their personalization thingy is really nice too. This is what came out..... pretty nice

    Yeah so far I've convinced 6 of my friends to order one based on that photo alone. My wife is totally enamored with it and she's tough to please. No jokes, please. ;)
