    I'm scared crazy, but I am tired of the case and I wanna enjoy the look. Dear God if I drop this thing. Granted I have never dropped it with the case on. It's been in a case since day 1.

    I put an Otter Box case on mine about a month ago because I was using it out in the rain. A few days after I put it on, I slipped on the ice, saw my iPhone go flying through the air(slow motion) and land on the concrete driveway. It slid down to the street. It survived without a scratch, I gues I'll keep the case on it.

    I pulled the trigger and did the same about 2 months ago and haven't regretted it since.

    I have never had a case on neither of my iPhones (Orig and 3G). I have only dropped my 3G one time and it was on cement. Some scratches on the edge but no big deal. I just can't stand the thickness of most cases. I love the iPhone because it is so thin and fits nicely in my front pocket against my wallet.

    One minor scratch from something I don't know what (keys I am guessing) on the glass. The back is uniformly covered in minor scratches, nothing major.

    Naked is GOOOOD..

    Every now and then I'll go naked. For like a day. Maybe half a day. Then I put my case back on because I get scared I'm going to drop it. I simply don't like scratches or any damages on a clean iPhone even though it can build character ;).

    I also just want to keep a good resale value by keeping it in pristine condition like it is now. I've been debating if I want to keep it naked and just make sure not to drop it, does anyone know if keeping it in you're pockets and not dropping it will bring everyday use small scratches? If so are they minor?

    Same here! It feels better and looks better. If I'm out of the office or home, it's always in my purse so not really too much of a danger of dropping :)

    You sound like me...I can not have a minor scratch knick or dent. I see nothing but that and it drives me crazy. That's why the case. Then I worry about resale value, too. Although, I got bashed for this in a thread before...during resale time....I take it to Apple and make up crap and get a replacement. Then I sell a crispy new iPhone...I have only done this twice. Once for each model change...here again in a few months. :D

    People like you are the reason some with legitimate problems get turned away.

    Doubtful...

    The reason some legitimate problems get turned away is because people at the counters are not all the same person. I've read of lots of people getting their phones replaced because there were cracks forming in the corners of their phone, screens that weren't level, bezels coming up or batteries barely lasting a couple hours. I took mine in with these issues and the guy said it wasn't covered. He did not say, "I already gave Gix1k a phone so you're out."

    Also, if you are saying that they have to be more strict BECAUSE people do what he did... then you're wrong again because if they WERE being more strict he wouldn't have gotten a replacement unless it was warranted.

    Oh well. I'm still more or less happy with my 3G. As long as iCanHazJailbreak!

    Haha!! I knew it wouldn't be long. I have to disagree with you. I'd say you're a pushover and take that crap when you have a legitimate problem. There would be no way I'd leave that store with the same phone if there was a problem I was dealing with. No way! Right now, I have a hairline crack where the charger plugs in. I'll point that out along with it safe moding all the time. Then I'll make up a few other things to make my case that much worse.

    Yes, it will have the back, not the glass, scratched up. Nothing major mind you, just it will go from shiny new to dull. All depends if that bothers you or not. Obviously, it doesn't bother me.. I love my phone, but come on, it's a phone.

    Once you drop your phone, face down, on the concrete, you'll become one of those people I laugh at when I see them in public... Using their iphones with a huge crack in the glass.

    I use a case, but not mainly for protection. With the iPhone's popularity, I just need to be able to quickly find mine on a table or desk covered in coworkers' iPhones.

    What does he have to search for? He's not asking a question.
    You need to relax- don't read the thread if it's been made before.

    If you want to enjoy the look like I do, why not just put an InvisibleShield on it?
