    New to the iPhone and MacRumors, hello everyone!

    I have a gelaskin on my white iPhone, and was using a Case-Mate Hula until the color detached from the clear plastic :( I'm getting a refund, but I am definitely not ok with just the gelaskin!

    I have been scouring the forums for the best clear, ultra-thin case, and settled on the Powersupport clear Air Jacket. Does anyone have experience with either accessoryseek or panicpot? I'm just wary of trusting a 3rd party vendor. These are the options google gives me:

    Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!!

    I'm trying to find a completely clear case so that my gelaskin is really visible. My experience with TPU cases is that they are a bit cloudy and yellow quickly.

    That's odd. TPU doesn't normally do that. Bad case, perhaps?

    Hm could be... Any suggestions for a thin, clear case? I guess I may just end up on ebay, but they all look so bulky!

    Don't buy from panicpot.com

    DON'T order from this company. Google PanicPot reviews: You will find an occasional good review (most mention how cheap the price was and how quickly it arrived), but if you have a problem (and many do), you WILL NOT GET YOUR MONEY BACK on your own. I purchased a Mophie Air from Panic Pot for my iPhone. They called me and said that they were having trouble processing their charge cards -- could I please pay through PayPal? So I did. Got the battery case and it did not work. Emailed them and got a delightful response from "Samantha: -- Oh we are so sorry! We will send you another one and check it first (duh!) to make sure it works. We will also send you a prepaid envelope to return it to Hong Kong." I was so happy, until nothing arrived after 15 days. After 5 more emails to "Samantha" at PanicPot, I realized that I was getting nowhere. So I registered a claim with PayPal. PanicPot responded with an arrogant email that the item had been shipped. So I asked for Tracking info. Nothing. Asked again. Nothing. Time to escalate to a dispute was running out. More emails through PayPal and through their "Customer Service" address. Nothing. So I escalated to a dispute. PayPal informed me that I must return the phone (at my expense), with a tracking number (cost me $20.00). So the battery phone case that was $10 cheaper than Mophie has cost me time and more money than if I had ordered through Mophie. I now understand why the credit company wouldn't accept the charge! I don't understand why PayPal does not cut them off. BUYER BEWARE. Your cheap purchase may cost you a lot more."

    No idea if it'll fit with your skin, but:
    http://www.switcheasy.com/products/NUDE_iPhone4/NUDE_iPhone4.php?color=UltraClear

    The completely clear color option is the one next to black with the x going through it. ;)
    Switcheasy cases tend to be pretty tight fits, though, so it may not play nice with your skin.

    Anyway, just another option. No idea if its better than the Air Jacket. I've heard good things about both of these cases, plus the Pinlo Slice (which isn't perfectly clear), from people who like thin cases (not my forte).
