    Looking at ordering a new case for the 3G phone. Is it the same size?

    yes but it will require a iPhone 3G compatible case because it has an extra sensor and a tad thicker middle

    it's slightly different. slightly thicker overall but thinner at the edges. same height but wider by a millimeter.

    It will be close, but more curved on the back. The front for screen savers should be the same. The sizing template for official version 2 cases was given out to case makers some time ago with the new sensor locations. A loose case should be OK, a tight form fitting case like the Agent 18 that I have- you should wait for a version 2.

    Which is equivalent to about .02 inches. So, it pretty much is the same size.

    Thanks. The search engine isn't the best, or I'm suffering from user error.

    In any case, I prefer a hard case so it'll seem that I'll be waiting until the new accessories will be released.
