    I'm sure I'll run a case at least for a while. I haven't really seen any and wonder if you guys have seen any that look tempting?

    I'm looking at silicone cases from ebay but would rather rock the phone naked.

    www.grovemade.com You can customize your own but they are pricey. I'm getting a premade art

    I ordered a clear case from Amazon.com - I think it's called Poetic or something similar. Should get it by Thursday. I just got it to have something for now until I see something I like better. But if I can find someone to put on the InvisibleShield or Ghost Armor for me (because I cannot do it and I end up wasting them and getting thoroughly pissed off) I may be tempted to use it without a case.

    I'll probably just end up getting an Otterbox Defender at AT&T. Take advantage of my 50% off accessories discount I get through work that I didn't even know I had

    I ordered the black Case-Mate Barely There case on Friday and it was delivered on Monday. I use a similar minimalist case on my iPhone 4 and like it very much. :) (I wish this new case had a clear back like my iPhone 4 Body Glove case.)

    I have an otterbox defender. To be honest, I'm thinking of just rocking it naked. It looks damn good in the pictures from the reviews.

    The "scuff gate" actually makes it look cooler I think. Maybe it's just me. My cautiousness will probably get the better of me and since I'm drunk a lot I'll end up slapping the case on it. We'll see.

    I was gonna get that one but I got picky and thought the writing on the bottom looked kinda odd. So instead I got this for like $3.75 shipped with the code LUVAPPLE. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001QU96MG/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00

    I like that too, I was just a bit more drawn to the smoke color because of it being slightly transparent, it's similar to the one I have on my 4s, but more gray.

    I bought this one today- http://www.amazon.com/Diztronic-Mat...1348029527&sr=8-1&keywords=diztronic+iphone+5

    I currently have a very similar Diztronic Matte case for my Droid Razr Maxx, and its probably one of the best cases I've ever owned (and trust me when I say that I had a LOT of different cases when I had the iPhone 4, including the Otterbox Defender - which I hated because the silicone layer would keep getting stretchy).

    haha I had that case for my galaxy S2, I did not like the Matte feeling so I returned it.

    Diztronic is awesome they have great customer service and great TPU cases, I just wish they had that smoked style I bought for the iPhone 5.

    Oh cool. I really like the matte finish. Although maybe its a little too slippery sometimes. I tried the glossy TPU case but it was too sticky and would keep turning my pocket inside out.

    I'd say our cases are pretty interesting: They're paper.

    Finally got this case today and I do not like it at all, it has a matte finish back, which was unexpected and it's lighter in color than the pictures.

    ----------

    Did you receive this case? Thoughts?

    Hi is that the only reason you don't like it? How's the fit and how do the buttons feel?
