    I know there is an accessories forum, but its pretty quiet around there, and everyone is in here.

    I'm getting an iPhone for the first time since the 3G (Android since, switched to sprint for the savings)

    What are some good cases to buy? I know people claim their screen has no scratches (I don't believe them, btw), but I will for sure be buying a screen protector.

    Any other general advice is welcome

    Otter Box cases are the only cases I'll buy. I've already ordered a new one for the 4S.

    I swear by the Contour Showcase as I have them on both my old iPod touch and video iPod......unfortunately, it has yet to be made for the Verizon iPhone 4 and thus also, the 4S :/

    This being the case (no pun intended), I would probably settle for the Hardskin made by the same company, although I have no experience with this specific line of cases. Would really like a Showcase for my first iPhone though.....

    I've been thinking about getting an Incipio Edge Pro. I keep reading everywhere that so many cases ruin the screen protectors and I figure if this place gives you one with the case it's gotta work properly. Case seems to be pretty nice too.

    Not sure about case, but as soon as my phone is in my hand I'm heading to Burbank (Powersupport) to getting screen protectors on front and back.

    I've had Ghost Armor for my past 2 iPhones and love it. I already pre-ordered mine to be installed on launch day. I don't use a case, just the Ghost Armor.

    You better believe it ;). Well, at least for me anyway. I've had all my iPod touch with no screen protector, and everytime I sell them a year later they'd be have zero scratches on scren. The only thing I'd be bothered to buy a screen protector is that the oleophobic coating wearing off, and things can get ugly from there.

    I'm going the Best Skins Ever + Bumper route. Worked well in the past when I had an iP4!

    Yep power support crystal screen protector and incase snap for the back work well.

    Thanks everyone!

    One more question: I am going to get the Sprint 4S... Which iPhone 4 case do I buy? I'm guessing the Verizon CDMA version? Or do I have to wait until manufacturers release specific cases for the 4S

    I own two Incipio cases, the NGP and feather models. They are extremely well constructed, stylish, affordable, and can be found at most retailers!

    'Incase Snap Case 'and 'Incipio NGP', both very well made cases from reputable brands. :)

    I will be getting a PowerSupport crystal screen shield and a Speck Pixelskin HD case. Be advised though that the Pixelskin case will have the vibrate switch offset because they did not redesign a Verzion version when it came out. I contacted Speck and they said they shipped updated versions to retail Apple Stores for the 4s launch and expect to update their website inventory in 3-4 weeks time.
