iPhone 5 credit card / ID case

I currently have a Case-Mate case that can hold my debit card and my driver's license, and I have been using it since I had an iPhone 4. It fit my iPhone 4S so I ran with it.

Has anyone seen a similar case design for the 5 yet? I know they will make one eventually, but I've been searching like mad and haven't found one yet. I'd like to get one before I get my 5 - I don't want to revert back to carrying a wallet everywhere!

I'm looking for the same thing. I saw Incipio has one but it has horrible reviews.

Thanks, but that's not exactly what I am looking for.

The case I have is not a pouch or wallet type. It's just a normal case with a small slit on the back that allows you to slide in 2 cards. Small form factor, basic design.



Like this one, but mine is matte black.

My coworker has a leather wallet case he get from TJ Max.. I'm not a fan.

Do y'all have any experience with any of these? I'm normally not a fan of cases in general, but I could see me using something like this when I go out on weekends.

The image is showing with the cards pushed up. They actually sit down in the case and there is a big hole for the camera.

Nice, however if it holds up to 4 cards that means its pretty thick. The case mate one holds up to 2 cards which keeps it very thin. Looks like case mate will be releasing one just gotta get the press right. I also see case mate now has a barely there ultra thin so maybe they can release that in the ID series as well. I know I'm not after a case for drop protection, just from scratches and to hold my cards but not everyone has my wants. One thing I am concerned about however is that since the back of the phone is no longer glass where the cards touch is that I have a concern for scratches or dings. Anyone with a MacBook knows how sensitive the material can be at time with dings and indents.

Bought the cast - it only holds 2 cards. It looks alright (got the black) but the quality is subpar.

I owned the casemate on my 4, and it seemed to be made of one molded piece of plastic. This case on the other hand is not. The lines where the plastic was bonded/melted is sharp and uncomfortable depending on how you hold it (eg., cradled in one hand with a finger supporting the bottom).

Having said that, I was able to get 20% off with a coupon code "SAVE20" but I don't know if it's working now.

For half the price of the (sold out) case mate case, I think it is worth it. I actually like the look better than the case mate, but the sharp edges is a drag.

Is yours a mini suit? Mine is.. And the quality blows ass. Please post pics of yours. Mine fits loose around the phone and if you put more then 1 card it in it pops off.

I don't understand why these cases are design where the credit cards or id can be seen. When am traveling, I'll be really worried taking pictures in touristy areas where am gonna be the scam artists or thieves target - iP5 with credit cards!

Am buying the iLid where you can easily hide & take out the cards and even use the lid as stand.

Have you guys owned or used iLid before?

too much hassle to constantly take the phone out to access cards. the case-mate one only shows the very top of the card nothing else.

I used to have the iLid for the iphone4s and loved it, it's actually no hassle at all to take out the cards, all you have to do is flip the back open. I modified the one I got to be able to fit 3 cards in the back and I liked how thin it was, I used to have a casellete but it was just way too bulky; granted you could fit like 5 cards in it, it was too bulky though

The iLid case is the one with the door on the back - it's not the one with the door behind the phone.
