I find myself wanting to change cases like underwear lately.

I have soooo many cases, and something about each of them seems to annoy me depending on the day.

So how often do you normally change cases??

Never. I like to interact with my iPhone as intended. Feeling the great materials and sturdiness of the product.

My personal opinion about cases are that they cheapen the product making it feel like crap in your hand with the cheap materials and added bulk.

I understand though, that for some situations and for certain lifestyles, cases are a great value.

since last Oct, i have had 2 skins, 2 cases and almost ready to get my next case. It is costing me more for skins & cases than actual iphone 4s. :D

I've had the same Incase Slider on my iPhone 4 for the last 2 years. Never changed it. Its survived a few drops and has a couple cracks but I will be upgrading when the new iPhone comes out so I'm holding off on getting a new case.

Guess I am the odd one here. LOL. I sometimes change my case daily. Yes, I have THAT many. I just enjoy changing the look of the phone with a different case. Right now, I have an Incase Hammered in Iron on my 4S. Really liking the look and the feel, so I haven't wanted to change this one.

I have only used the Apple bumper on my iPhone 4. I don't see the need to spend the money on a bunch of cases.

I've had about 3 cases that I have used on my 4S. I really should just go naked because I usually just get the clear cases, so it shows off the white of the phone. I refuse to put any bulky cases on it since I feel it takes away from the design and feel of the phone. Currently, the Incipio Feather clear case is fitted on the phone.

Somewhat often I guess. I've had my 4s since April and am now on my 4th case, and it's my favorite so far, Speck grip. Plenty on eBay for 15-25 dollars, compared to 35 for a retail pickup at Apple or wherever. It looks bulky but is actually light and has a confident grip.

I change it up every so often, from a Magpul black to a Magpul desert, to a Magpul foliage. :D oh, and once in a while to an Otterbox Defender.

I've bought too many cases over the years and currently use the phone without one. It was an expensive experience to realize how I like to operate my phone to say the least.

I got back and forth between a bumper and an uncommon case I designed via their website. I like both, just depends on the occasion.

I've got 2 bumpers, a pouch, 2 half cases and a book book. They all have their pluses and minuses. Presently, it is naked.
