    How cheap is cheap? Ebay and Amazon have good deals.

    I feel like people who sign up on here just to spam about their online iPhone accessories store should be banned..

    on another note, for no hassle silicon cases i'd go to amazon. ebay might be cheaper, but i trust amazon more than I do ebay.

    Generally speaking, you get what you pay for. Cheap cases usually mean that you have more than one manufacturer that copied the original design, so there's a chance you'll end up with a poor knock-off, as seen in the Vapor Pros from China thread.

    I just bought a white bumper Apple clone from Amazon for $2.30 shipped. You can find it by searching for "iphone 4S bumper white". The holes may not line up exactly like the official bumper from Apple, but for $2 I'm ok with that. They also have a fun gameboy silicon case for $4.99.

    I got a Griffin Reveal bumper for my iPhone for $6.00 off of eBay. Came without a box though, but was from NY so hopefully it's legit. Either way, I can't tell and I'm happy. I'm doing a review on it after a few more days with it. Looks great with lay on table design.

    iphonecasemall.com has some cheap ones. I'm not sure which are compatible with the 4s, but I think alot are $5 with free shipping. I've never ordered here, though, but my friend is pretty happy with his.

    Check Radio Shack, as they have "cheap cases." I think they have cases that are 2 for $10 and they are cheap plastic. The cool thing is that they have cases in multiple colors. They should work with both IP4 and IP4s, as they have slot cutouts around the edges for the buttons.

    Jacky Lin and Jacky Nie at AliExpress are good sellers of cheap knockoffs of some of the expensive and popular cases like e13ment and Element.

    These cases rock. 7 bucks for a basic, thin case and the colors are pretty cool. I just got one this week and there was a 3 year protection plan for it for 99¢. So if this cheap case breaks anytime in 3 years, I can get a new one at any radioshack for free. awesome. Here it is.
