    For the origional iPhone i have this case:

    http://www.case-mate.com/phones/apple/iphoneflip

    Its a really slim design and is the best case for the iPhone i have ever seen.

    However, i have not come across any flip cases similar to this for the iPhone 3G.

    Please post if you have seen a good 3G flip case.

    Also, do you think this origional case will fit the iPhone 3G?

    I loved that case... I never used the holster, and removed the clip. no such thing for 3g yet... I have ordered several cases for the 3g in hopes one of them will compare.

    oops :)


    sorry.

    we have used this case with the 3G. it is very snug. the "ears" on my case broke internally when i tried to flex them a little to loosen them up.

    My wife's case is still ok, but very snug.

    I am currently using that case on my iPhone 3G (I was using it on my v1 iPhone). It is quit tight. Since the 3G bows at the back I was trying to curve the case and kind of broke it, but still able to use it (inside cardboard broke).

    I would prefer to find something that is slim and still has a flip face. I was looking when I came across this Thread on Google.

    I am currently looking at the SENA Flip style cases. Not sure if they are exactly what I want.

    Vaja sells an ivoultion SP which is like that. They're all hand-made when you order them so it takes Vaja 45 days to make one, though.

    Can someone post a picture by any chance? One that shows using the 3g in this case.

    Thanks.

    piel frama flip case

    Am ready to buy my second after several years. Got it for the original iphone and made modifications to work with 3g. Holds up well, carries half a dozen credit cards and folding money for a grab it and go. It's vanity that makes me want a new one, it still functions just fine. Comes in lots of colors and real leather (not sandwiched cardboard). Have dropped the phone several times and the leather seems to be a good cushion. When case is closed, no edges are exposed. Magnets to hold it closed may or may not affect some credit card strips (I have one that de-magnitizes, but doesn't seem to affect the others). Have bought cheaper cases, but $ for $ I think this one is by far the best deal.
