    I am looking for a case for my iPhone that covers the ENTIRE iPhone (even the screen), preferably with a VELCRO flap that comes down over the top. I would like it to be leather, but it doesn't have to be. I would also not like it to add much bulk to the iPhone, and for it not to have a belt clip... just something to protect it while it's in my pocket. Obviously you would have to take the iPhone out of it to use it.

    Does anyone know of any cases like this? I would love it if I could just walk into the Apple store or AT&T store and buy it instead of having to wait for it to ship to me from ordering online (don't want to have my iPhone unprotected while I wait).

    --Thanks so much.

    That doesn't cover the sides enough for me.

    Hmm, looks nice. But where can I buy it other than on the website, it also says Pre Order so that implies that the wait is going to be even longer...

    Sena just started shipping Aug 1. The preorder status went into effect July 7. I'm not sure if anyone else sells their stuff. Give em a call and find out how long you will have to wait.

    Alright thanks, I'll do that.


    But if anyone else knows of or sees any other cases let me know!

    I bought a Piel Frama case and love it. You can use the phone in the case, but could take it out if you like.

    Here is the website I ordered it from (and it has several other cases too)

    The sena ultraslim sleeve was available at my apple store. (They only had black...but I'm not complaining)

    I was a little unsure about it, just seeing pics online...but I love it.
    It was a little tight at first...but it gets easier to take out, after a while. :D

    I like how the Sena has a velvet lining so I don't get anything accumulated on the edges of my BG. BUT does anyone know if these pouch-type cases peel off "invisible" skins like IS or BG after a while?

    i use a sena elega case for my pocket i just clip it onto the pocket.. case inside clip out and pull the phone out when I need it. BG doesn't peel with it, at least mine hasnt after a month.

    Anyways, I also went to an oakley store in the mall and asked for some bags, so i've got like 3 microfiber bags from there if I didn't want the bulk of the case, but the case raelly isn't too big at all.

    I have one of these.

    http://www.covercase.com/product_detail.php?pid=738

    Despite it being described as leather, I suspect it is not. Nicely made though for the most part. No clip, fits in the pocket nicely without too much added bulk. It's semi-rigid, with a suede-like lining.
    It fits the 3G snugly.

    The best part is Best Buy sells it under the RocketFish brand, for $9.99.

    Oh...Yeah I like the soft inside. For the first day it was shedding, though...that was a little annoying. (esp. on the white iphone)...it doesn't seem to be shedding anymore.

    I have a screen protective shield on the front of mine...It seems fine. I don't know how it would work with a sticky on the back of the phone, though.

    I don't use a case regularly, but when I do, I stick it into an iPod sock. I had a set that went unused since I got a handmade case for my iPod, and it's the perfect solution for me. They don't scratch, they cover the entire phone, they protect from the elements, and I can change the color to match my outfit daily. :p

    I don't like the texture of most "pouch" cases but I found (and use/used) this one: http://www.ilounge.com/index.php/firstlooks/comments/artwizz-leather-pouch-for-iphone-3g/

    Very nice leather quality and fit. However, chances are that if dropped the iphone will wrestle free from the case and impact unprotected. I am now using a Capsule Rebel (Arctic on black) which fits great, seems to offer excellent protection but definitely takes away from the nice iPhone looks.
