    Does anyone use an iPod sock for your iPhone case? If you do can you post a picture of two of how it fits?

    --Thanks

    That seems to work pretty well =] Can you post a shot looking down from the top when the phone is all the way in?

    just go to wallmart and buy some, dont buy the ones by apple, they are like 30 bucks. Theres alot of off brand ones you can find that are exactly the same but without the apple logo and they are like 6 bucks for like 5.

    I used my iPhone in a iPod sock since it came out

    I got official Apple ones off ebay for £5/$10.

    6 cases for a fiver is pretty good.

    I've settled (for now) on a Best Skin Ever full body skin and an Apple iPod sock for my iPhone protection.

    I really like the slim profile of this combo. You really notice how thin the iPhone is when you put it in the sock.

    I have tried many cases including the incase rubber and a foof and had reasons to dislike both. For example, the foof leaves ugly black marks all over the BSE skin.

    I have basically no drop protection but I'm ultra careful with my iPhone. This is the best thing next to running naked.

    I also use an Apple sock for the iPhone and it works a treat, as it stretches over the iClear cased iPhone (just).

    I thought I'd chime in with my solution. I was thinking about a sock to slip the iPhone with case into, but didn't want to drop $30 for the fruity-colored ones from Apple. I use an Incase Slider and a Griffin ClearBoost, both of which are plasticky and slim. A buddy of mine has a Foof for his iPhone, but it's NOT elastic at all and holds the iPhone by itself.

    I stopped into a Meijer store of all places (a grocery/household superstore in the midwest) and found a Case Logic "Pockets" case that's a universal pouch for phones, cameras and iPods. They come in several colors (I chose black) and got it for NINE bucks! My iPhone with case fits easily inside, and it has a drawstring and ring to clip it onto a beltloop. Works perfectly for me! If you want to house your iPhone WITH case in a sock-type solution, this works best with plastic or metal based cases. I think leather and rubber cases would be tough to get in and out.

    The iPod Socks scratched my iPhone screen all up -- I DO NOT recommend them.

    Not sure either, but one weekend I decided to use one (thinking it was cool)... By the end of the weekend, I noticed small, hairline scratches on the bottom of the screen where the sock was being taken on and off. They are not the softest things ever...

    Ohf. Didn't happen to me, although I had literally only had one full day with the ipod sleeve method without a screen protector and it wasn't in my pocket for all of it. Now I've got an invisibleShield so it makes no difference...

    I just ordered a set of six socks on eBay. Couple that with the IS i ordered i should be pretty set on protection.

    Good to know they fit the iPhone. Shouldn't be much different on 3G.
