    i've spend the last week - reading just about every thread - and after breaking my 3rd iphone4 screen - i decided it'll be smart and cheap to put a case on -

    my question is e13tron, atomic, element vapor, is there one i haven't put here - a forum consensus on a case that gives protection, style and no signal issues?

    None of those cases will protect your screen. The only ones that would, are the ones with a hard cover. A shield might help, but if it lands square on the glass, then it still may crack.
    So far, I haven't heard of any signal/gps loss from the Vapor Comp.

    Style is highly subjective. If you want suggestions then provide examples of what you like and what you don't like. Consensus doesn't mean that you'll like whatever the consensus is.

    my parents used to cover everything up in plastic - so i have a hard time putting a case on anything - i usually break the screen just fumbling it out of my fingers

    i like all these aluminum cases - something that doesn't add anything to the bulk of the phone - if anything even the slightest bezel over the face of the phone i think will help me

    Of course there are many other great Cool Aluminum iphone 4 case, such as the Davido for KIROIC iphone 4 metal case, e13ctron s4 aluminum case for iphone 4, Trork Aluminium iphone 4 case, Arachnophobia Durable Aluminium Case, and so on.

    I've been eyeing the Rokbed, it looks pretty good IMO

    Which is that one?

    And, to the person above you, the Rokbed V3 isn't an aluminum case.

    The volume buttons are more spread out and the mute button is a tad higher. The white phone is more or less the 4S layout I believe?

    Weird, because it says it will fit the black ip4 ATT. As long as they were ATT the volume/mute were positioned the same (whether it was black or white). verizon 4's would be the same as 4s' so I'm not sure

    That is a lie about not fitting the AT&T 4S. I a white 4S, with the gunmetal colored jett. No problems.

    That's what I'm thinking. I've wanted the gunmetal one for quite some time but it's been sold out for a while. Thanks for the feedback!
