    Hey,

    I bought a Speck case from AT&T on launch day and its just way too thick. Plus after three plus days the rubber on the front is already scuffed up just taking it out of my jeans pockets.

    Can anyone recommend a good case that is thin and not crazy expensive. I am more concerned about the phone getting scratched and scuffed up that protecting it from a massive fall.

    Also, anyone know AT&T's return policy on cases?

    I got a Speck Case too. The one with the Plaid on the back and sides. Probably gonna return it. It is a little bulky.

    I would go with a sleeve... protects the phone when you set it down and while in your pocket or backpack without having a nasty case covering its aesthetic appeal all the time. I suggest TUCH – they're made from a single piece of leather without using stitches or adhesives. I have several of his products and love them all.

    I have had a ton of thin cases and IMO the best one is the powersupport air jacket. Comes with 2 anti-glare screen protectors as well. The price is a bit expensive. $40.

    I have an Incipio Feather. I love it. Extremely lightweight and fits perfect. It also has a great solid feel in the hand. Only problem, it doesn't protect your screen like some other clip on cases (Incase Snap Case).

    After reading and checking out videos on the Feather, Pinlo Slice3 and Desmay Slight I went with the Desmay as it is the only one that provides full coverage for the dock. My 2nd choice would have been the Slice3.

    Can I just ask- I am aware of problems with the iphone4 feathers. I heard of the costing peeling off, a friend had one and it happened to theirs too. Love my 3GS one and it help up for ages, just wondering if they've fixed the 4/4s problems yet

    I like the Incase Slider if all you want is scratch protection. Dunno if that's thin enough for you though.

    Not sure. My girlfriend has a pearl white one and it looks great.

    I had a problem with the coating peeling off my white feather on my 3GS. Contacted Incipio about it, said all they needed were pictures of the peeling. Sent them over and they immediately offered to replaced it, no questions asked. They even let me swap it out for a black one.

    Fantastic customer service.

    Thin Case

    Well the Griffin Reveal is anice option. I personally went with the Reveal Frame, which is sort of like a bumber and maintains the beauty and integrity of the iphone. will post pics later on.

    The Griffen Reveal looks nice I just don't know if it will fit the 4S. Anyone have any info on this?

    For those of you with "thin" cases, what screen protector are you using?

    I am looking for the thinnest case that can protect against face scratches and medium size falls.

    Those are some great candidates there, bonus points for finding transparent or white cases as well.

    Phone: VZW White iPhone 4s

    Thank you!

    Where did you find this in white? Their website only offers it in black from the looks of it unless I'm missing something.

    for those of you with the griffin reveal, does the case scratch the antenna/aluminum part at all? i was gonna go with the sgp neo hybrid ex because of the rubber piece on the inside that protects it from scratches but i really like the look of the reveal.

    and is the one from newegg legit and fits well with the 4s? I could only find the Reveal Case. Couldn't find the Reveal Frame
