    For the iPhone 4 I am thinking of getting some sort of graphical skin. Have checked out skinit.com but really can't find one I am crazy about. Any other suggestions for good skins?

    If you sign up for their "Free iPad Giveaway" they will email you a coupon. They vary in amount up to 50% off. The one I got was for 40% off.

    I have used both DecalGirl and Gelaskins skins on my iPhones and both are great. DecalGirl offers more choices in designs, IIRC, but the Gelaskins skins provide a little more coverage (at least on the iPhone 3G/3GS) than the DecalGirl ones. I think the DecalGirl skins are a little cheaper than the Gelaskins, but the quality of each is about the same.

    Appreciate the info. Will check these guys out. Maybe I should think about doing a create my own with some of the cool wallpapers out there.

    CANNOT WAIT for the 24th. Wish there was a way I could bribe the fedex driver to put me first on his list.

    Kind of bummed, I liked a couple of the skins at DecalGirl, but I checked with them and iPhone 4 skins will not be available until 2 weeks AFTER the release date. Might have to get something in the meantime.

    DecalGirl.

    Just installed it and it was worth every penny. It looks even better than I thought it was and the pieces are 99.9 % accurate. You can see just a sliver of antenna along the sides if you look closely, but I probably could have done a better job.

    The DecalGirl comes with a piece for the home button, but I'm not so sure they intended for it to be used as the home button. I think they just didn't bother removing the cutout. Using it makes the home button kinda spongy.

    It actually looks better in person, but I decided the front vinyl wasn't my taste so I removed it and only left the back and sides.

    As for the reception problem, I was convinced it helped a lot, at first... I can always go from 5 bars to 1 holding the phone in my palm, but after installing the skin, I could only get it down to 4 bars. I was thrilled, but a second stab at it and I was able to lose all but one bar.

    (I plan to copy and paste this in a couple other threads, word for word, but I don't work for DecalGirl. I have seen very little info on the iPhone 4 DecalGirl skins, so I thought I'd contribute by sharing my experience)

    Another DecalGirl user here--iPhone 4, original iPhone, MBP, iPad, and Kindle. Always high quality, and they're the only one I've seen that offer a matte finish option. The matte is nice--no glare, no fingerprints, and it adds a bit of grip to the phone and iPad.
