    I got a 4s and a case, but I just can't seem to keep the case on for more than a day because it covers the beauty of the iPhone. I never drop my phone because I have extreme OCD and I baby it. Do you use a case?

    I'll play along lol.

    I use otterboxes commuter case. I'm always in or around a hectic environment. I've yet to drop my phone but as soon as I take it off I would.

    use a bumper ... more for grip than protection

    I go back and forth between nothing and a bumper. Currently nothing.

    I use a carbon skin on the back and a bumper. Offers decent protection but still very sleek.

    Otterbox Commuter. Pretty happy with it.

    I didn't buy the case to protect from each and every hairline scratch (and the metal band is already screwed up anyways on my 1 month old phone), but I got it so I don't destroy the screen on my phone. I've already dropped the thing 5-6 times and you never know, it could have cracked. I'll keep those $200 in my pocket and use a case.

    For an iPhone, it looks beautiful without a case.

    I don't see what other people see in Otterboxes. I guess it's just for protection.

    Lifeproof case on my iPhone. I now have no worries when I sweat playing basketball, bring my phone in the bathroom, by the pool, to the beach, or have it by Any liquids. It's so nice to have peace of mind.

    I use an Incipio Offgrid. My iPhone doesn't last me through the day. The Offgrid makes the iPhone the perfect size and I can make it through the day pretty easily.

    I use a bumper when I hit the gym, all other times I keep it naked.

    The most annoying part about the bumper is that the hole for an audio jack is sometimes too small for some wires. My car audio cord, for example can't connect to the phone when the bumper is on. The rubber-y grip it has has been a lifesaver a few times though.

    Mildly annoying but can come in handy when you need to set your phone down in a bumpy or sloped place.

    I don't use a case at all really, it looks a lot better without one and in 18 months, I'll have a new phone so the occasional scratch doesn't bother me (although its in perfect condition since november). The only time a case has been on my phone (bumper) is when i let the kids play on it, saves any damage from drops within the house

    Ditto, only ever used the Incipio feather range, barely there but will help with a just in case scenario.

    I use to be a case whore, but now I've given them up for the time being. I'm waiting on my wraps from Lucky Labs to arrive this week.
