OP, I came across this credit card case that fits your criteria.

http://www.boostcase.com/store/?page_id=667

Their blog page indicates that they will be updating their hybrid series for the iPhone 5.

I had their Extended Battery Hybrid case for my 4S. I kinda like the multi-functionality of their snap cases to add on a credit card case or extra battery depending on my needs.

I literally just received the Targus wallet case (listed in the OP) in the mail.

And it's really. REALLY Bulky. It's like two iPhone 5's stacked on one another.

I purchased mine from amazon and plan on returning.

Great thread. I went to the Fresh Fiber site and ordered a case. I'll throw up a few pics and do a quick review when I get it.

Has anyone had experience with the Q Card case from CM4? I think they look really nice but haven't really heard of them until this thread. My main concern is it will be too bulky or not hold cards securely. I used the Speck Candyshell Card case on my iPhone 4, but found that it was too bulky for my liking.

My Speck SmartFlex is on its way. I hope it is not too bulky. Speck don't give you dimensions but I can't imagine they can make it any thinner given the material used.

I never considered a wallet case until I saw this thread. Now I kinda talked myself into thinking that it's the best thing since sliced bread.

But I have had crazier ideas before so this is not the first time . Like the time I bought a nice leather pouch for my iPhone 4 and after a few weeks the hassle of removing the pouch from my pocket, and then the phone from the pouch, and nearly dropping it many times when trying to do so in a hurry, and the missed calls when trying to do so carefully so not to drop the phone. Then it dawned on me that the pouch may actually contribute to my chance of dropping the phone unprotected more so than removing the bare phone from my pocket, I now the owner of a really nice barely used Beyza leather pouch.

Keeping my fingers crossed.

Okay, I'm just like a few other posters here in that I hadn't really thought about an iPhone case/wallet hybrid (or even known about them) until tonight as I was reading this and clicking on links.

Of course, as I'm sure you all know, when you click on one link, you end up being led off in different directions all over the web. Well, in the process of my link clicking and Googling, I came across this site, which reminded me that I had read an article about this company about 6 months ago, and then forgot about it:

iCache | Your Wallet, simple and secure

Amazingly, this device just received funding through Kickstarter, and it's only made for the iPhone 4/4s. WTF?!?!? A brand new company, funded by Kickstarter and partnered with the likes of Oracle and Apple itself, selling an über-cool digital and biometric iPhone case/wallet which only works with obsolete iPhones?

Well, I have to believe the iPhone 5 version is in the works, and if that comes out in the next few months, I have a very strong feeling I'll want to spend the $200 on that! Isn't this a step toward the Holy Grail of technology Zen? Truly having one thing in your pocket which eliminates the need for any of those credit cards in the first place? All we need now is a way to use that universal Geode card as a door key, a car key, and identification. Then, I think that would do it. No wallet, no keys. Just an iPhone and it's Geode case and card, using the app with fingerprint activation to turn that card into whatever you want it to be. Yep, that's the cleanest solution I've ever heard of...certainly seems more secure than NFC.

Why are more people not talking about this? Is this not really as cool or secure as it looks, or is this just too ridiculously expensive to ever be a viable option? I don't know, but it sounds awesome to me!

Glad it sounds awesome to you. I don't like it cause I think it's far too much hassle and bulk for me.

It's a cool concept though.

Speck case

Ok, got the Speck SmartFlex in today. Slightly different than the version for the 4, but I'll spare you the compare/contrast - as it really doesn't matter because we're talking about the 5!

I've got 3 cards in there and you'll see it's slightly bowed. That's due to the rubber 'hump' that is in there to hold the cards tight - whether you have one card or 3 cards. It's not that significant and I suspect it will settle in and flatten out over the course of a few days. Overall, the case feels great IMO. BTW, if you're impatient and have a Nordstrom close by - check on-line for in-store availability. I know, it's probably the last place you'd look for an iPhone case - but many stores do stock them.

Because this is essentially what Passbook will become, when NFC chips make it into the iPhone eventually. I suspect they have realized this and that the window for having a captive market is closing - fast.

I really just don't like pouch cases. It looks cool, but as much as I use my phone, I think it would be a hassle.

I agree about the future of Passbook. Too bad my new iPhone 5 will be obsolete immediately after NFC makes its way to the iPhone 6....Ahhh, the price of being addicted to Apple products.

Meanwhile, that Speck case looks great! Two questions: (1) Any room for cash? And (2), is it easy to remove a card from there, or do you have to kind of jimmy them in and out, all three at a time?

Agreed. I loved that case for my iPhone 4. Can't wait for it to come out for the 5. Meanwhile, I bought the Speck SmartFlex.

I actually just ended up ordering this one from eBay. It is nearly identical to the Case Mate ID. Only $8. I'll post some pictures when I get it.

see im worried about that one, its no where as thin as the case-mate. but please do and compare to the 4S casemate if you have one. im also worried about scratching of the back plate.. the 4S was glass so it just slid across, this being the new back it might be concerning.
