    Hey guys, getting an iPhone 3G for development purposes, and it doesn't need to look pretty, it needs to be protected from clumsy idiots (i.e. me). I'm thinking of doing one of the scratch-resistent skins (based on review, the bodyguardz cover for the front/glass, and the Invisible Shield for the rear/rest of the iphone), but on top of that, I'm looking for a rugged, heavy-duty, slip resistent case that will give max protection from drops.

    The only stipulation is dockability, considering for development, it'll be docked much of the time.

    Suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Well I dont know if you will be able to find a case with that kind of protection that has dock compatibility. You cant go wrong with an otterbox. I had one on my first gen iphone and it ads bulk but will definitely give you drop protection.

    That's certainly along the lines of what I'm looking for.

    Other suggestions out there?

    not much else but the otterbox that sort-of fits your description, but maybe using the the data/charge cable will be better with the otterbox

    You could just lug it around in a safe. :D Just make sure you have a skin on it so it won't be scratched by the metal inside. :D

    Seriously though, you should be fine with a regular case. I have an Incase Protective Cover that I really like. It is rubberized and has great grip. The phone is still scratch free!! The iPhone really isn't as fragile as some people seem to think.
