What should i consider with the purchase of my iphone such as warranty's, cases, screen protectors... Thanks ahead of time. :D

    Can't go wrong with Powersupport screen protectors, their the best in the business in my opinion.

    I haven't got a case apart from the front & back powersupport protectors and have no issues with signal at all.

    Just be careful with it. Lot of people who complained about cracked screens are usually those who refuse to put on a case/protector or are careless and clumsy. If you're looking for the utmost protection then Otterbox is the way to go. Very bulky but will protect your phone better than any other case out there. You can get cheap knock off versions off eBay for like $5 if you wanted to get one to test it out. I have one and it works great as I've dropped my phone a couple times already with zero damage.

    I got my iPhone yesterday and got an OtterBox commuter, which is not as bulky as the OtterBox defender and really love it and even protects the ports on the phone as well from rain etc

    I have an Incipio NGP on mine, this one to be exact:

    http://www.amazon.com/Semi-Rigid-So...1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1287682599&sr=8-1

    And I'd say it's a pretty good bargain considering it comes with a screen protector. Case feels very sturdy and also looks good. Plus it says "impact resistant" right on the package, so it must be good! :D

    BTW I liked the screen protector for a few weeks...but ended up picking up a PowerSupport Anti-Glare HD at the Apple store a few days ago. While it might affect the retina display a tiny bit, I'd say it's worth it since it shields the screen from scratches/fingerprints. My fingers glide so smoothly with this awesome screen protector.

    I would only recommend the Otterbox Defender if you plan to be rugged with it. I use mine when I take it on National Guard drill weekends.

    Agreed. I have a Defender and I've tried to use it as a daily case, but I only make it through one day and then switch to a much slimmer case. Case wise I would recommend the Speck HD Pixelskin.

    I keep mine naked and am just careful with it. I don't baby it, but it doesn't go in the same pocket as coins or keys.
