There's no hard drive in iPhones. It's all flash drives, magnets does not affect anything, see the iPad2/3 Smart Cover for example. For the iPhone 4 I had the same type case from spigen for two years and the phone works fine. It's a nice case

agreed magnets will not affect flash drives at all so no worries about it. besides that i was also eyeing the spigen however the look of the metal part just put me off xD im rolling with a waterfield suede jacket

Anyhow, the magnets become weeker in time. If you got a case with "click-lock" , then it wont be a problem. I want one of those click lockers

I found this too, and I like it, the only problem is that its open on the top. Which I dont like.

These look great! Ordered one just now. I'm really impressed by the price, I thought they'd be twice as much.

All the ones that look like that have the magnet on the strap. Maybe this might work but I've never had or seen these cases before.

Yeah Ive been looking at the snugg. The only problem I can see is if I wear screenprotectors on that phone so it wont fit? Btw, the snugg has an open top.

The spigen-cases are the best but they have magnets

Agreed. Plus, if you're walking along, pulling a suitcase or carrying a laptop bag then you must stop - since you need both hands.

Well there's the "HEX Code Wallet" for the iphone 4. Don't know if they're planning an iphone 5 version:

Yea overall, spigen is the best and protects the top too. The only things is the fit is tight but I'm sure it will loosen over time. I woulnt worry about the magnet stuff. It's pretty much a myth. Computers have speaker magnets sitting over the harddrives. It really takes a super strong magnet to wipe a drive or affect needles. Everything in the iPhones are solid chips sitting in silicon, resins, and stuff. No moving parts noting to worry about.

That looks better. But still wanting a subtle looking case. Black.
And one con with that case is that its got a "hard" case inside which makes scratches to the phone.

What you're explaining is pretty much tumbling me over ,but Iam still paranoid. Very well-written but Iam still not amused. I will think of it every night like, what if that case destroys my phones components, lol.
I will, at very least, think that the phone is slower and things like that so HELL no

I just ordered this case! Similar to bookbook but I like the actual phone-holding area better, and how easy it is to pop in/out. They have a slighter cheaper version without the card holders too.

Awesome! Looks , awesome! Iam going for one of these.

Can you upload pics when you get it ? Iam getting my phone in 3 days so I need a case nao! Figured Iam going for a temporary silicone case before I get my SENA (which takes a while to come) - then Iam gonna look at this.

Thats a really nice looking sleeve. Iam on the verge of ordering one. Even though I told myself multiple times that I should get one with lock over the top...

Just ordered a Colcasack for use at home, mostly. Might just take it with me sometimes til I get a leathercase.

Now the thing I just figured out is that I can use a silicone case + screenprotectors and still it fits in the Colcasack. Now thats the big PLUS for that sack.
