    I am still deciding between film and a case for when I get my iPhone.

    I have always used the "isee" cases for my iPods. They are simple and add hardly any bulk. Has anyone used it for the iPhone?

    I bought the Contour iSee at the Apple store when I bought my phone. Honestly I bought it as a stop gap until I recieve the new ivyskin xylo T3 because I didn't want to run around with it naked. It's not horrible but I don't know that I would want to use it on a permanent basis.

    - Provides protection and fits the phone very well however the clear plastic of the case itself shows scratches. Not that big a deal since it's not the phone itself getting scratched but worth mentioning. Very noticeable on the back.

    - Access for the silencer slider/switch not well thought out. When you slide it down to silence the phone the switch sits flush against the edge of the case so it takes a lot of undue effort (and fingernails) to get it back up.

    - Edge around the screen is pretty thick so I feel like random crap can get trapped around it. Note: I did not apply the screen protector/film that comes with it.

    - Volume controls and power button have little silicon plugs you can put in. Power can be depressed without removing the plug, volume buttons not so much.

    - Not dockable while in the case (not an issue for me since I didn't buy one) but cable fits just fine. Also somewhat of a pain in the butt to get the case itself off, takes a lot of squeezing on the sides to get it to unlatch itself.

    Anyways, those are my impressions. It's not a terrible case, it does it's job but like I said at the beginning I don't plan on using it on a permanent basis. If you're looking for something like this kind of hard case I would probably shop around a little more.
