    As with all cases, they each have shortcomings. After researching each one, I chose the Griffin Reveal Etch owing to the hard back (for a bit of stiffness) and its almost full coverage (rubberized) edges. I also bought an Incipio Soft Shell while waiting, so I wouldn't be bare until the Griffin gets here.

    I have one by Speck. Hard plastic back, and hard rubber sides.

    I preferred the iPhone without the case - the way it looked and the way it felt in my pocket. I wanted a minimal case so got the Apple band that just goes around the outside. It works great! It adds some bulk but not much. It will prevent sliding on an inclined surface. I still would prefer no case and may remove it. I learned to hold my iPhone without touching the antenna. You really don't need a case other than to prevent touching across the antenna.

    i agree with u that i prefer the iphone with no case, which could be possible with iphones 3 and prior. However the iphone 4 is nearly impossible to have without a case, they had a genious idea to make the back glass. wtf. my mom has broken 2 already while waiting for the phone case she ordered to come in

    The Otter Box puts all other cases to shame, however the belt clip is a bit awkward.
