    I JUST got my new iphone 3G. Upgraded from a 2G finally and i love it, but i am SOOO concerned about cracking the back!!! I was wondering if having a GOOD skin on it would be enough.

    Now, i have never flung the phone across the street, but i have had it drop out of my hoodie pocket on occasion.

    So i wasn HOPING there was a way to get away without a case. I am TOTALLY ok with a skin though.. are there skins that are a little thickers or tougher than the other?? I know the front screen protector that i want (the mirror one from switch easy) but i dont know about the back skin.

    I don't think there's too many things that can protect a screen from a fall. I've got IS on my 3G iPhone and an Incipio Feather Case, and the War Department has IS and a Griffin Leather Case which is probably the best protection for her iPhone since it is well padded and has a nice snug fit...:)

    AFAIK they make skins as thinner as they could, not thicker, that's why you're not yielding any replies from here.

    maybe a thin silicone case, or some hard case can help you..:)

    well, if I wanted a hard case, i dont think i would be asking about skins, thanks anyway.. and silicon.. ugh. No thanks..

    I am just SOO in love with the way it feels in my hand. I had the 2G iphone and i LOVED it, but then i got this one and it feels AWESOME.. and i thought it was going to feel like a toy.

    Anyways. i want to keep that feel.
