    Just curious since I will be buying a new iphone as soon as the new ones come out.... which store has the most/best accessories for the iphone: Apple Stores or At&t stores or a different B+M. Don't say the internet.... I like to see, touch, try on, taste, etc. etc. before I buy.... Thank you.

    I've bought most of my accessories from the Apple store. The apple story usually charges more though, and I've also seen the same products at bestbuy for cheaper. I guess it also depends on what accessories you are looking for.

    Good point... I guess thats another question for people too, what do you recommend? I'm thinking I need some sort of case to protect against drops, one of those plastic thingees to guard the screen against scratches, I need some kind of stick on holder for my car since I plan on getting a gps app and need to see the screen without holding it, car charger,.....

    Well for a case, I bought my case at the Apple story. BestBuy also sells cases along with a bunch of other stores, but I prefer getting those straight from Apple. My case I got (Speck Candyshell) came with a screen shield. To be honest... I think screen shields are pointless. Sure I guess it's a little extra protection, but I also have an iPod Touch along with my iPhone, and I've never put a screen shield on it, and I've put that thing through hell. I don't even have one single scratch on it. The glass is very hard to scratch. A case is a must though. I'd say get a nice and protective one, even if it adds a bit of bulk. My buddy use to also say "How the hell can you use that case" (Since the speck case does add a bit of bulk) But two weeks later, he drops his phone on a tile floor... Good bye iPhone. He no longer has one. So make sure you get a nice and protective one. The case is to protect your phone, and not look good. Which most people don't understand until they lose their phone.

    I bought an iPhone Car/Wall charger (It's both in one) for $15. I thought it was a great deal. It's very useful, and great for trips! I bought that at bestbuy. For the holder, I'm not too sure. Maybe search it online, and see which stores have one.

    I think an idea before buying iphone or any suggestion from experts is really do well for you. There are many networks with experienced and qualified iphone app developers. I also use to get sometimes ideas and suggestions for some specific iphone applications.

    Honestly probably apple. I have purchased a few cases from best buy and chargers. Apple definitely has more to choose from for whatever you are choosing for you're iPhone. The Apple store definitely has a great selection for screen protectors that nobody else will cary, cases also.

    Best buy does carry incase products though, as does the Apple store. Best buy has dual wall/car charger by incase but Apple store doesn't carry that. Try both and makes you're decision there.
