    This will be my first iphone. I've been saving for it by working nights at Arby's. Needless to say, I want to protect it!!! :D

    Can somebody recommend a good pair of gloves so I avoid fingerprints? Also, I am looking for a plastic ear-film so I don't get smudges by the earpiece and a spit-guard for the Microphone.

    Thanks in advance.

    Sounds like you're going a little to far to protect it, you have bought it to enjoy it, no?

    As for protection, I'll just pickup a cheap case sometime next week, then get a decent one once all the manufacturers have their products available.

    Also, i recommend the cheap-ass rubber-tipped 'iPhone gloves' you can pickup off ebay around this time of year (I bought mine for 99p [around a cent & a half??] ) and make the touchscreen usable even with gloves on.

    Do you have any idea how much Roast-Beef fat I had to clean off the slicer and how many dried Hershey Squirts I had to chip off the bathroom walls....late at night...at Arby's...just to afford this phone?!?!?!? Damn straight I am going to everything to protect it. Why wouldn't I?!?!?!?

    I hear you, I want to protect mine also. But earpiece guards? Surely you don't want to rewin Jony Ive's design too much?

    In that case, go Otterbox.

    Even though this thread is a joke, iPhone case makes more sense than gloves for hands.

    I'd recommend a hazmat suit for both the iPhone and you.

    Ok, I did get a chuckle out of the Arby's. But, for the rest of your attempt, eh, you worked a bit too hard for it. Your user name actually is funnier.

    Still, if you were up in the middle of the night like many of us, one can't expect you to be at the top of your game. I will give you a solid B, and a better luck next time.
