    I use a DLO holster leather case and because of the work I do, I wrap the polishing cloth around half the phone, to avoid scratches and scuffs from hitting the table etc...it works, but I noticed with the white, it's leaving a black mark on my phone, anyone else have this issue and can anyone suggest a good holster case, vertical, that will not scratch or mark the white? Thanks in advance!

    i had a krusell case that i returned today but i had the same problem. it wipes right off, but i think its going to happen. You can try getting a white case? I purchased a Sena ultra thin pouch but you can check out their Elega case. Looks nice in white.

    Check out the Waterfield Suede Jacket, I have it on my white iPhone and haven't had any problems with it. It's the best case I've ever owned. Keeps the phone looking brand new and whenever I set my phone down on a table, etc I just place it on top of the case to protect from scratches, etc. My chrome on the Apple logo, bezel, and buttons are all still pristine. As is my screen and plastic back.

    Best of all it's only $9 + shipping. I got the one with the pocket though so I can have cards, etc in it when I need. Highly recommended and the customer service is superb!

    Thanks guys! I didn't realize that the black from the polishing cloth would come off on the phone and not come off, maybe with these cases, I won't need to wrap the phone and it will be better protected!

    the elega case is really nice, thats what i use on my 8gb. i got the croco brown, and the inside wont do anything to your phone at all. its pretty soft.

    I would say at least 75% of the scratches/marks on my last iPhone were caused by putting cases on and taking them off.

    and heres a review
    oh and just so you know, this case fits the 2g and 3g fine. theres no different case for the 3g. and it fits pretty snug, i turned it upside and shook really hard and nothing happened.

    Just put it in your pocket with nothing else. Works fine for me, no scuffs or scratches. I know that doesn't help your case situation, but try it.

    Thank you all, I guess since it's white, you really notice every mark, and I'm trying to keep it nice LOL go figure the cloth and the case meant to protect it would hurt, darn DLO case...

    Ya know what works well. Those magic erasers that clean surfaces. I used it on my gf's white ipod and every little dark scratch and mark disappeared.

    Might wanna try that if you get something dark rub off onto the white surface.
