    I know that this was a common complaint with the first gen case so I'm wondering if the 2nd gen is having the same issues. I don't really care about lint or pulling it out of my pocket easily I just want to know people who have this case NOW for their iPhone 3g does it scratch up your phone at all in any way? Thanks.

    All of the silicone/rubberized cases do. I owned the iSkin and it put tiny scratches in my iPhone 2G and I have the black and red Belkin on my 3G and it has done the same thing. If dust/dirt can get in between the case and chrome it will happen and with the silicone cases its inevitable.

    that really sucks I don't understand how I can have this phone with no case for three weeks in and out of my pocket with virtually no scratches but if I get a "protective" case it'll do the opposite

    Thats why I wanted the SwitchEasy Rebel to work so badly for me. It's not silicon but a some new polymer formulation. All these acrylic, silicon, clear cases scratches up the chrome within a few weeks of use. The one that kept my original protected without scratching was the Capsule from SwitchEasy, but they don't make it for the 3G.... I wish they did.

    It will scratch it faster because the pocket isn't "grinding" the dirt into your phone like a tight silicone case is. I have the case for drops and general safe keeping. I had my 2G naked before I got the iSkin and the chrome was eventually scratched.

    InvisibleSHIELD is the way to go... I couldn't be more happy with the ones I have on my ipod nano and touch.
