Am I the only one that carries their iPhone naked?

I hate cases and screen protectors and carry my iPhone 5 naked. Does anyone else do this?

Nope, no one else in the world does this. Maybe you could get on the Today Show?

I have my 4S on this iPhone Lanyard hanging around my neck & it's fantastic. When I drive, the speakerphone works great. It comes out fast and easy and is totally Naked!

Well, I know it looks better and slips in and out of the pocket easier but it's just too expensive to not put it in an enclosure.

My four was naked the whole time. Actually surved in almost perfect condition until the very end when a couple of epic drops shattered the back.

My five its already dinged and I have a case on the way....

Hm. Sure didn't take long to go from "thinking of just ditching cases and screen protectors" to "hate cases and screen protectors"...

Like many others, I don't use a case on my iPhone.

Been going naked since my Otterbox broke last week. They sent me a new one but I'm hesitant to use it. I think I'll take my chances. I broke my last Android phone on accident, but have never broken an iPhone.

The thought for convenience. Then the circumstance melds with function. All-in-one type of thing. Sorta just happened.

After two and a half years, my Apple bumper case wore out, so last week I started carrying my iPhone 4 naked. I have mixed feelings on this. For one thing, it's ironic that Apple designs these sleek and elegant devices but everyone immediately puts them inside bulky/ugly cases.

On the other hand, these phones are really slippery feeling. With a new phone, I want to protect it with a case. For my old out-of-contract iPhone 4, I think I'll just continue to go naked.

That is why I am using a bumper on my iPhone.

I would love to carry my IP5 naked, but I'm just too obsessive about keeping it scratch free as possible. I bought a matte black cover that just covers the back and around the edges. It's very thin, very light, adds virtually zero bulk, slips in and out of my pocket easily, has a sort of soft plastic/hard rubber feel to it, wipes clean very easily, and was only $5 on Amazon. Easily the best $5 I've spent in a very long time. I hated the idea of putting a cover on my phone, but I have to admit that the matte black look and added lines from this cover actually enhance the overall look of the phone in a way.

Yes and who cares?
