I was just wondering if most people used a case or not to protect their iPhone. I use one, but I feel it "hides" the sleek look of the iPhone, and I'm considering "going naked" so I can enjoy how great it looks. Of course then I worry about dropping it. What do you do?

Been naked for 6 months

I've been naked for 6 months of usage. The iPhone fits nice and sleek in my front pocket, and that's been great. The problem is the edges of the phone are real slippery, and I feel like I've been getting lucky without dropping it. I tried skinny egrips just on the vertical edges, but the phone's curve caused the egrips not to stay flat, and they peeled away quickly.

So I've ordered a case that wraps around the perimeter of the phone, and I hope it's slim enough. It's very thin, and I think you can either put the case just around the perimeter or on both the perimeter and back. It's called the slim fit case by Cozip. Reviews seem decent, we'll see.

This doesn't take into account the cases that you do not put on the iPhone, but rather that you put the iPhone IN - like a holster or belt case.

I use the sena flip down case, use to use one that flipped up but didn't like the way the cover would flap into your head. The flip down one seems to help the sound...or atleast that's what I think anyway.

I went without a case for a very long time but it always felt like I was holding a bar of soap. I had a few minor drops and when the phone was replaced I put the new one in a black incase. No longer sleek and stylish but it looks very cool all black and is just about indestructible. Only problems are that it is hard to get out of my pocket and it can still get scratched if something gets inside the case.

Agent 18 all the way.

It's the only case I can use - because of the look. All of the other one's are either dinky themselves or take away from the iPhone's look.

I just took the case off mine this morning, and after having it on since I got it, I can't believe the difference in how it feels using it. Typing is easier, sleep awake button just a click instead of having to search for it. The screen looks bigger. I really like it without the case better. And using the dock again, like that too. I haven't read one post where someone dropped it and damaged it to the point where they couldn't use it. I do have a screen protector on it. It's nice to know I have the case if I need it.

Naked, get slippery sometimes though. Dropped about 4 times from 4-5ft onto its face. So far no scratches on the screen. (couldn't care less about the chrome side/back)
