    Or am i the only crazy one?

    By causeless, i mean caseless of course!

    I figure with a 100 dollars for applecare + and 50 for a phone replacement, i can just take a chance that i won't break my phone in two years (hasn't happened ever yet)

    and a case.. why would i care about weight, size, thinness, any of that if i put a case around it. too pretty to cover up!

    and a screen protector... well I'm considering this one. should i?

    iPhone comes with good one year warranty.

    AppleCare plus isn't worth it. $99 plus $49 fee to replace.

    Better off taking your chances and paying $199 if you accidentally drop/break.

    Amex covers 90 days accidental damage/lost. Plus most credit cards give you second year warranty for free and will reimburse you if apple tries to charge you $199 to replace up iPhone.

    I bought the original iPhone the first day it came out. (yeah, I waited in line and everything...)

    Never used a screen protector or case. Not a single scratch on it. Screen looks awesome even today.

    The iPhone 4s comes with much better engineered glass than the original iPhone. I expect it is even more resistant to scratching.

    I think the screen protectors are pretty bogus, and understand why Apple doesn't want to deal with them.

    As for cases, if you're around gritty materials (like living next to a beach on a tropical volcanic island for instance) you want to be careful you don't get sand in the case -- as I've seen a few screens get messed up that way.

    I just keep my iPhone in my pocket when I'm not using it. A case just seemed like more hassle.

    Your milage may vary. Enjoy your new phone!
