    Right now I'm using a silicone case, while I like it it is a huge lint magnet. I'm looking at getting a hard case, and would appreciate some input on what the best hard case is. I'm considering the Ecoshield and the Incipio Feather.

    I have used an incase slider for about 3 months or so. I think it's an awesome case and is also highly recommended. It really gives you that scratch prevention and shock absorption. I don't know much about the cases you mentioned but I know the incase slider is an awesome case.

    good luck!

    This incase slider is nice, but I don't like the bulk it adds, no matter how minimal you claim it may be. I only use it when running or exercising. I like and have been wanting to buy the Elago slim case. It's cheap and very nice looking. And because it doesn't cover the chrome, won't be fussy about how I've got my power custom screen protector aligned on my screen like my incase is.

    Ditto on the Air Jacket. Only case I'll ever use.

    Yup. ;)
    It adds minimal bulk and still displays the beauty of the phone.

    Incase slider.

    I had mine on for about 4 months but realized how nice the phone is without it. I can deal with small scratches as long as my screen protector is on so I leave it naked now.

    I like the Otter Box, I dropped my phone on a ceramic floor and it was fine.

    I have used Beyza Slim Case since I got the iPhone 3G in July 2008.
    I got mine off eBay, but you can check their website "beyzacases.com"

    So after talking with some of the people at the Apple Store, I ended up going with the clear EcoShield. It fits niceley and feels great. It's pretty hard to take off too, which is a plus.

    I find the close-up lens great for taking legible pics of documents, price tickets, product info, timetables, maps, and other stuff when I'm out and about. I used to write it all down on paper.

    The ability to instantly view it on the phone and pinch-zoom is what makes it all work.
