    Interesting.

    I got mine on first day, and so far my list of cases from start
    are as follows:

    1. Griffin's Elan Form with Easydock - returned due to peeling
    2. Incase (1st batch release) White Slider - returned due to horrible fit
    3. Incase (1st batch release) Black Matte Slider - returned due to peeling
    4. PowerSupport's Clear Air Jacket - sitting inside a shelf
    5. Griffin's iClear w/o Armband - sitting inside a shelf, sometimes used
    6. SwitchEasy's CapsuleNeo White - returned and swapped for a:
    7. SwitchEasy's CapsuleNeo Black - current case
    8. Zagg's Invisible Shield - it was 50% off so I installed one.

    So I have 3 cases and an IS on my iPhone.

    Dude what color incase sliders you own? Still looking for a live shot of the charcoal and olive green.

    I've returned a bunch but here is what I currently use

    -Metallic Red Incase Slider (using this currently)
    -Black Seidio Innocase II (for those formal settings and don't wanna be flashy)
    -Griffin Elan Form (brand new, never used..going up on ebay)
    -Griffin Iclear (gave to my lady since she like to play kickball with her phone..paired with a decal girl leopard skin...looks hot)

    Both phone have PS Anti-glare screen protectors as well

    One Switcheasy Colors (Stealth)-somewhat stretchy and loose and collected dust and dirt underneath
    One Seidio Innocase (Black) that I just ordered and is now shipped

    SwitchEasy Colors (Milk) - fit way too loose and collected alot of dust inside.
    Incipio Silicrylic White - Favorites.
    Incipio Silicrylic Black - Favorites.
    iSkin Revo2 - returned this because I didn't want it in red and couldn't find it in the Apple Store in any other colors, but this is a GREAT case.

    and also a WaterField Designs Suede Sleeve, which is AWESOME and protects the phone the best by far from scratches, etc because it does not collect ANY dust inside (of course it doesn't protect it from falls or anything extreme). This case has by far left my iPhone in the best condition. I recently switched to the Incipio's because it was becoming too big of a hassle taking the phone in and out of the sleeve when I wanted to use it.

    I love the metallic ones. I have red, gunmetal, copper, sliver and a matte black.

    Ive seen the charcoal one but it looks alot like the gunmetal minus the shine.
    The chocolate one looks nice but we dont carry it and im not paying 35$ for it.

    I'm still REALLY anxious to see a live shot of the burgundy slider.

    Right now I have a matte black Slider and a black InCase Protective Cover but I only use the slider.

    hard question it is!

    Ok I just tell you favorities
    1. leather dark brown << my best, no scratch for my iPhone
    2. transparent << common
    3. metalic looking << rare I must say

    I am a bit choosy of my casing coz I believe its our personality's reflection. :)

    3) Leather slide in's - Decent, but I have had the phone slide out!
    1) iFrogz - Sweet case I really like. I switch back and forth with my Otterbox.
    2) Otterbox Defenders - I ordered the first one for the protection. I work construction and have dropped my phone a few times and the Otterbox is pretty bulletproof.

    A word of praise for Otterbox. The first one I purchased, I scratched the inner side of the clear screen. I contacted customer service to see if I could just replace the screen part. They sent me a whole new case, no questions asked. Very good people to deal with!:D

    1 - Switcheasy Colors (Stealth) good silicone!!
    1 - Switcheasy Capsule Rebel (black) scratched my bezel = never touching my iPhone again
    2 - Seidio Innocase II's (Black and Ash Grey) *used daily* love this case
    1 - Shield clip on case (the ones you can buy from amazon sort of a SGP rip off)
    1 - Otterbox Defender *used when needed*
    1 - iFrogz Lux - horrible quality when compared to the seidio's...

    The majority of my cases just sit around collecting dust..

    One case. Seidio Innocase II.

    For everyone who has more than one case, how often do you switch between the cases?! Or are the extra cases simply laying around gathering dust?

    My PS Air Jacket & iClear is covered laying around somewhere, I'm very satisfied with the Black Capsule Neo.

    I like changing cases every 3-4 days depending on my mood. I make it a point no to use the same one until its gone through the rotation. My friends and co-workers think im crazy!
