Going tomorrow morning to pick up an 8gb iPhone as we are leaving for an 8 hour trip to the Outer Banks, NC at noon. So after reading a bunch of reviews, I'm probably going to go with a case or two from on-line retailers for my iPhone that I will use 24/7... Yet, I was wondering what you guys would think my best bet would be to get just for the trip to hold me over. It must be purchased at the Apple Store (assuming that mine carries them and has them in stock), but just something to fully cover the screen and the back from scratches... More importantly the screen, as I think the back is destined to get scratches anyways... Just let me know what you guys would do for a "layover" case. Thanks

hmmm.... with the exception of "slip" cases, i haven't found any cases that cover the screen and iphone and enable you to use the device while its still in it's case (like a flip-up). Maybe the incase folio?

Scratching on something like the iphone bezel is inevitable. I will always remember how when I was young I got a nice gold bracelet and the first day i went out and slipped in the rain and scratched the **** out of it. Now a days even my breitling watch was scratched on the first day I got it, and I just brushed it off, if it wont scratch now it will sooner or later.

this is my holdover case - super slim, full protection, includes a plastic shield for the screen (it only covers the actual screen but is better since the ones that cover the entire face never line up with the ear piece or hold button) and a cloth.

i recommend it.

This was the first case I got. I like it alot, soft inside, grill at bottom for sound / microphone and also is flexible to help push the phone out.

If you can get a Griffin Elan Snap-in (can be used screen in or out) and the Powersupport Crystal Film.

Think I am going to be getting one of these:

I'm going to call and see if they will do one w/o the belt clip as I just put mine in my pocket. Looks fairly sexy too :-)

I'm also thinking of one of these:

Don't buy a temporary case. Just enjoy the iPhone as it was designed, without an annoying case to get in the way. If it gets scratched, so be it. It's better than fumbling with a bulky, cumbersome case.

Casemate.... rigid leather and allows for full functionality. Has a little screen protector and if dropped, you'd be fine.

Probably in the Apple Store like at AT&T.

There problem solved.

Case Mate makes one (iPhone case with flip cover). I ordered it along with the holster (combo) :cool:
