    I'm looking for a wallet case. Right now I'm leaning toward the Piel Frama Magnum 2.

    Perhaps.

    I'm not a fan of talking on the phone with it in the case. I have a friend with an iPhone 4 WalletSlim by Sena and I love the look of it.

    I love the fact that you doesn't have to carry a separate wallet.

    And the design seems to allows you to pull the phone out of the case pretty easily and quickly so you're not holding your wallet to your ear when you're on the phone.

    What I don't love is the fact that it barely holds two cards which is a deal breaker for me. I need room for probably three or four pieces of plastic, a license and cash.

    So I'm thinking the Magnum 2 which says it has two card pockets and a "cash pocket". Though I don't really see the cash pocket on the website.

    My question is: does anyone know if the design facilitates the easy removal and replacement of the phone from the case? Are the materials durable enough for someone who is going to be pulling the phone out a few times a day?

    If the Magnum 2 is designed to be used primarily in the case then I'm leaning toward this off-brand which seems like it might meet my criteria.

    Any thoughts on the subject or any other recommendations?

    I've ordered the iMagnum 2 but there doesn't seem a lot of room for cash and I don't think it's designed to have the phone removed several times a day! For your use I think the Etsy one would be better.

    I've been all over that thread. I've looked at every link, every case mentioned. There are a ton. I think the thread title is:

    Walletcases/Leather/Pouches/Sleeves

    I thought it might be useful (at least to me) to narrow it down to wallet cases. If I've breached forum etiquette I sincerely apologize but I thought by reducing the conversation to wallet cases I might ferret out thoughts specific to my search.
