    Is anyone actually going to use their free case or are you going to list it on eBay as soon as you get it and use the money to get a REAL case whenever Contour decides to make their freaking Showcase case for the IP4?

    I'll probably keep mine because the one I picked IS a real case. ;) Speck Fitted. I would have preferred it in a color, but this'll do.

    I got the Speck Fitted too but the color is atrocious. If it was even in plain black I'd probably keep it but the whole plaid thing doesn't suit me that much.

    I'm keeping mine. I like having variety. This will be my eighth case, four of which were free (3 bumpers and free Speck).

    It's eBay man....people there buy stuff just to buy stuff. Someone will buy it even though there's a ton of them out there.

    Sorta. I honestly dont see why people would pay for free stuff. Maybe they havent heard about the free case, or dont want to wait 3-5 weeks for it to arrive.

    Depends.

    I will probably can get more insight with the PixelSkin HD on here from the posters and anybody else doing a review.

    I really do like the looks of my bumper on my iPhone 4 that I may never take it out. I also use a holster case, so I never really worry to much if it drops out of my pocket.

    We'll see... but I wouldn't be shocked if I can make a profit out of this. Apple overprices everything anyway and I want a little payback. They charge $30 for white headphones when it probably only cost less than $2 to manufacture. And those gray rubber padding scrape off around the ear buds. I get my $30 back and more if I want to.

    If I sell it, will wait AFTER Sept 30. The later adopters will be all over the internet around Black Friday/Holiday season. Time to capitalize on them.

    I'm keeping it, because like every Apple product, it'll be worth $50+ ten years from now if it's still in the box unused. Will be good for when I need a spare $100.

    With the quantity apple is giving away, the selling price on eBay will be about two cents.

    Keeping pixelskin HD. Happy we had a couple choices and wasn't forced to choose a bumper which would've just sat in a drawer.

    My PixelSkin HD is awesome. I ordered another and I'm going to return mine to Speck when it comes in.

    I'm happy with the Rocketfish case I bought before the refunds were announced. But I got a Speck Pixelskin for a spare just in case. :)

    After seeing multiple YouTube reviews of the Speck PixelSkin HD, I may just keep mine. We'll see until it actually arrives and if I change my mind. I can't really judge it until I hold it in my hand.

    I didn't like the pictures of the case early on, but it seems in the videos that it will grow on me. The front part is similar looking to the bumper. The "PixelSkin" is the one that looks too bulky for my taste. The PixelSkin "HD" gives me less paranoia with the glass back even it covers it all except the camera/flash. I can be a bit more rugged with my phone and less anxious if I happen to drop it on concrete then if only with a bumper on. At least one side of the glass slab (the most shatter prone) gets completely protected and nomore applying fingerprints on that side either. Extremely pleased with my choice because clear hard cases suck, in my opinion. Scratches and showing lint gets me all OCD sometimes. With the black bumper already in hand, my choice looks to be an excellent alternative and even an upgrade to my bumper in some ways.

    Got something to look forward to in September.
