    For those of you who finance your phones through a carrier, do you go naked?

    Do you worry about damaging your phone since you will turning it in so you can finance a new one? Most carriers will let you finance a new model if the current phone is paid off by half and if the current device in not damaged.

    I'm currently naked and it freaks me out when I think about turning in my phone for the iPhone 7.

    Naked.

    We keep our devices, but I hate cases.

    I was never on a plan where I could until now, but I won't be able to trade it in until next year. But I've gone without cases for almost 8 years, so I'm not worried.

    9 months into Apple's Upgrade Program and I've been naked since day 1 with no issues.

    I went with a case because the 6+ was just too slippery for me to use in the California Desert (no humidity/very little). Wife and I traded in our phones and got max $ for both. I would worry about going caseless because I know there'd be a few dings if I didn't - but I really want to go nekkid. I'm very jealous of those that can.

    Cases obviously provides better protection. Just got decide what do you value more? Then be willing to deal with the consequences either way. I choose naked...Its a higher priority then maxiuming my potential resale value.

    I have my 6s financed through the IUP, and it has been naked from day one. I have dropped it twice since I had it, but the phone is sill in mint condition. It also helps knowing that I have AC+ on the phone as well.

    I have had a couple close calls due to this. I too live in the California desert and it's dry.

    Lol I see Victorville in your profile. I'm in Apple valley :). We are practically neighbors. When I'm in Iowa or Peru the phone is a lot less slippery.

    What helps me is to place a thumb on the screen while I take it out of my pocket or putting it back in.
