Ok... so this is the age old and often repeated question. Recommend/dis-recommend me a case. I plan to take the iPhone 3G plunge real soon and have cases w/these criteria/requirements. - adds minimal thickness - must not block camera lens or headphone jack - must not scratch up the phone - doesn't cost an arm and a leg (less than $40 please) - should survive going in and out of pocket (I think silicone/rubber sleeves are out) - should have plenty of space around dock connector to use w/various aftermarket chargers/FM transmitters (I once had an Agent 18 4th gen iPod case that was real tight in that area w/an FM transmitter) - primarily concerned w/protecting the back of the phone don't care about: - screen protection (the glass screen seems scratch proof enough after having borrowed an iPhone 3G for almost 2 weeks) - case coming apart if it's dropped. - covering up buttons and switches (can be covered or not, don't care) - using iPhone with docks - whether it's a holster - where it has a belt clip I don't plan on removing the iPhone from its case often or at all. I'm probably not going to go with the InvisibleShield from Zagg (at least not to protect the back) as I'm worried it peeling off due to taking it in/out of my pocket. I've got it on my 80 gig iPod Classic and it's great but that iPod never goes in my pocket. It was also quite a pain for me to install so I don't relish installing it, taking it off when it starts peeling, sending it back, installing again, etc. I can say that the http://www.griffintechnology.com/products/elanclip sucks. This came w/my borrowed iPhone and it completely blocks the camera lens and is too thick. In order to use the camera, I have to use quite a bit of force to remove the phone and end up scratching up the back a bit due to the clip at the top. http://www.howardforums.com/showthread.php?t=1401480 mentions some but I see comments about some of the Countour Flick cases scratching up the chrome.
