    Just wanted to know if anyone here goes completely naked with their iPhone 4? I bought a case for mine but love the way the phone itself looks.

    I really dislike even a tiny amount of bulk that cases add to my perfect phone, so I ended up going with the full-body carbon skins by lucky labs.

    Scratch protection only and no bulk added whatsoever :)

    Naked all the way. Wouldn't use an iPhone in any other way.

    Dropped mine twice and would have broken it if not for speck case. Peace of mind over looks for me.

    Also I can throw it in the bag leave it on tables etc without having to worry about scratches. I am not going to spend time worrying about breaking or scratching it.

    Yes, it is a beautiful device; I wouldn't dare having it without its protective case (Otterbox Commuter).

    I'm a phone dropper, so I need the protection. In fact, I dropped my iPhone 4, and stepped on it while getting out of my car... the day before my OtterBox defender case came in the mail. Luckily, my temporary Apple bumper case protected it from breaking or getting scratched.

    I've been using it naked a lot more recently... it just looks SO good. But it depends where I'm going or what I'm doing - at work I tend to leave it lying on my desk, so I keep it in the case. If I'm going out and know it'll stay in my pocket all day, then it goes naked.

    Hahaha... even if you're not, I still think people take a big risk by not protecting their asset. Unless they just have money to blow...

    The fingerprints and smudges that would be all over the back of the phone would drive me crazy enough to have to get a case.

    I've heard that the back of the iPhone isn't as scratch resistant as the front. Anyone hear if this is true?

    I use the black Apple bumper on mine. To me it feels too slippery naked.

    Naked Is Sexy!

    Went with a case for the first couple of months, then got rid of it about six months ago....I love it! I DO use the Power Support Crystal front and back screen protectors, but they are basically invisible. It is just so much nicer to see and feel this gorgeous device unobstructed, in my opinion.

    Sounds like there's no one out there that this has happened to...

    Even if someone actually did drop theirs, the percentage that it would actually happen to you (given that your a careful person) are so small that I don't even worry about it :)

    Might as well have your kids trapped in a case while your at it since they might fall/drop and hurt something ;)

    I have a griffin clear hard bumper case on mine. Almost naked. I love naked, but I had death grip issues so I had to go bumper at least.

    Get phone insurance and go naked it's the only way :D

    I've dropped my phone twice but no cracks or breakage just a few minor scratches on the midframe!

    Seems like it. The back of my iPhone 4 has a few scratches, one being pretty deep and my camera lens is also pretty scratched up. With that said, I do use my iPhone 4 naked 90% of the time, I have an Apple Bumper which I use occasionally.

    Although the idea of going naked totally appeals to me, I just can't fathom the possibility of having to cough up $200 to pay for a refurbished phone after I drop mine and shatter the glass.
