    In the market for a iPhone case because I just cracked my phone . ( all though I love my iPhone naked ) preferably I would like something protective and even water resistant because I love the beach. But I don't want to spend over 50$ any suggestions

    That's a tall order to get something for under $50 and water resistant.

    Usually you can hit up Amazon and get better prices, just be careful there are a lot of knock-offs on Amazon.

    I'd say try a Lifeproof case, it's completely waterproof. I have tried this case, and while it's pretty amazing for being waterproof, the screen shield makes it feel like you are using a PDA from the mid 90's and to get it under $50 is probably impossible.

    Another option is the Otterbox Defender, which is ONLY water resistant, so you still need to be careful with it in that regard. It's much bulkier than the Life proof, but the screen shield is far better IMO.

    Those are the only two rugged style cases I've ever tried.

    You can also look into the Ballistic cases, Case-Mate's Tank case and Trident cases. I know there's more out there but other than that it's all I can think of off the top of my head.

    Quality might be great but it's ugly and bulky.....not to mention over-priced.

    Overpriced? lol... 40 bucks is overpriced? Look at how much your phone costs... I won't lie it's not the slimmest of cases, but it's not that bulky either. Fits in your hand really comfortable. And as for ugly, I get compliments on mine all the time. Not only for how sturdy and nice it feels, for the looks too.

    I have used their cases on every iPhone and iPod I have owned. Great stuff. The iSkin REVO 4 for the iPhone 4/4S is awesome. Nice tight rubber case, 30 pin cover, and a removable clear cover that protects the screen and clips on the back of the pone when you are using the phone. Great Case and awesome customer support.
