    I use a very nice looking, minimalistic, white tpu bumper I bought off of eBay for $7...

    ... BUT...

    ... I put a tiny amount of scotch tape on the antenna so that I wouldn't have the bumper scratch problem that most people had with their 4 ;)

    Case 24/7 for this iPhone 4S. Unlike the original iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, I've gone with a case for the iPhone 4/4S, since I didn't really like skins for them...:cool:

    Nice Belkin Leather case is doing the trick...

    I have a protector on the front and back (skins, if you like). I also have a case, but I usually only use it for nights out that involve drinking. I don't trust Drunk Marc with my iPhone. :p

    Naked. The best thing about the iPhone is how it looks and feels. Why would I want to put a case on it and make it look like some sort of android disaster?

    Stop reading my mind. This is the exact reason mine's naked. It just feels so damn good with nothing on it.

    (I do have insurance that will replace it if I drop it, which I did twice with my 4.)

    Clarivue skin on the front and back without a case.

    Only reason I had to use a case on the 4 was due to antennagate. Enjoying the case-less-ness.

    I love the Speck Candyshell cases. I have one on my work 3GS and now in my iPhone 4S.

    Good idea. I've never thought about that. The bumpers scratched the HELL out of my iPhone 4 antenna band.

    Last time I checked, the best thing about the iPhone was its usability, not how it looks.

    It's both. I mean, it is still one of thinnest if not the thinnest phones out there, and it's made of glass which feels great in the hand.

    Whenever I see someone put a gaudy case over it thereby making it a bulky mess, it just disappoints me. It's kind of like people who put plastic over their couches? Why protect it if you're never going to see or handle the real thing?

    I have a Skinomi skin plus a $2 *fake* lime green bumper. Protects it from scratches and minor drops while keeping that iPhone-is-sexy look! All for less than $10 shipped :D

    I've got a SkinIt skin on only the back of my black 64GB 4S. Ultra-thin, non-cumbersome, won't lose it on a table of other iPhones.

    I agree w/ others regarding why put something on? Me? I do both sorta... I put wrapsol (15 bucks at walmart) and protects all area and still look like it has no cover on whatsoever.. People are all very very impressed.
