    I would say about $175-$200, but I'm done now and just rocking my iPhone naked.

    Probably in the $200-$250 range. I switch cases all the time. Funny, the one I like most was the least expensive - The Case-Mate Barely There.

    I actually agree with you, I have spent over 100 on cases for my 4s and the favorite of mine right now is the zoogue one I got for free.

    Its really weird. I just brought a Speck Pixelskin HD after my Candyshell started peeling and loving it. Loving the slim feel and the cool pixel texture on the back but for $35 its not cheap.

    Ditto. Spent tons of money before deciding I liked it best without. I have a Saddleback Leather pouch now.

    Lots and i don't really want to contemplate the true cost.

    Now i simply use the sgp carbon fiber backing and lucky labs decal strips.

    Agent18 Hipstacase: $35
    PDP Kermit the Frog Clip Case: $30
    Apple Bumper: $30
    Best Skins Ever: $9

    The first two were gifts, and the bumper was free from Apple, so I guess I've really only spent $9 :p

    $35 for a Candyshell. I'm a bit bored with the color (teal blue with black trim), so I may buy a new one at some point.

    I used to spend a lot, like hundreds but now keep my iPhone naked. I got sick of 1)Spending the money 2)Keeping the phone covered/extra bulk etc.

    Thats redicoulous, you spend a round $200 bucks on Cases then when one fails you spend $200 to replace your cracked phone. Why not just save $200 and just use your iPhone naked beat the **** out of it, scratch it up and then just pay the $200 to get a new one later on ?? :D

    I have spent waaaayy too much. I have candyshell, pixel skin, one of the frogz cases that broke, an incipio ngp, mophie juice pack plus and a couple other $5-10 cases from amazon and eBay. I have a **** load of different colored bumpers and transparent cases. I've probably got about 35-40 cases and bumpers. I've also bought six different colored back replacements and a bunch of decals. I'm addicted to modifying my phone =/ I've spent more on cases and decals and backs than the cost of the phone lol

    And the sad part? I don't use any of them anymore. I just put on a colored back replacement and use it with a zagg screen protector now. Sometimes I'll put a bumper on it if I'm going to concerts or parties because the iPhone is pretty slippery and I don't want to accidentally drop it while drinking.

    At least $100. My favorite is a Griffin etched plastic (looks like dark carbon fiber) case I picked up from Walmart for about $10. Go figure... :rolleyes:

    3GS: $50
    4: $90
    4S: $0

    Total= $190

    This is not including screen protectors. From now on, no more cases. The 4S is naked and as all future iphones.

    Two Candyshells over the life of my 3GS, which I think I got for around $20 each on Amazon. And so far one official Apple bumper for my 4S. I'll probably replace that next fall. One case a year seems like a reasonable expense to me.
