    Does anyone have any suggestions about cases that are easy to put on and east to take off with out damaging the iPhone itself? The reason I ask is because I doubt I will use a case unless I go out of the house. If I am at home or even at work I will probably keep the case off because I love the look of the naked iPhone. So, if anyone has any suggestions of some barely there cases or easy to put on take off cases that would be awesome. Thanks!

    You may want to check out the Switcheasy Color then. It's a silicone case so there is no damage that should be done to the phone by removing it. Good luck.

    Slider cases are very easy to install and take off.

    Contour Showcase opens up like a book with a latch closure. I use this now and haven't had any issues with scratching or damage caused by the case.

    pretty much all cases are easy to take of and pretty much all of them wont damage you phone either. dont get a aluminum case as you will have to use screws and what not so that would be a hassle.
    incase snap
    seethru satin by speck is my favorite
    incipio ngp

    those three are very easy to get on and off and are not to big

    I really don't like silicone cases because they collect lint and I worry that dust can get behind the phone scratching it. Also, the silicone makes it kind of difficult to slide in and out of my pocket, which is where I keep my phone.

    Does the incase snap scratch the iPhone at all? I am a little worried cause you have to snap the plastic around it. I know the iPhone is metal and glass but I would be worried of wear and tear of a snap case going on and off a lot.

    the see thru case is a good be for you its easy in and out a little harder than silicone but it will protect much better too, it will also slide in and out of your pocket very easily.

    No it does not scratch the iPhone at all and i've been using my incase snap for 5 months or so. I've removed and reinstalled it on the phone many times and no damage whatsoever.

    Hard shell plastic cases could damage the buttons on the side if you are not carefull putting the case on and take the case off. The contour case looks interesting.

    You can't go wrong with silicon cases for quick removal.
