    Any good alternative to this case (See Below). I need a case for my wife that she can toss in her purse without worrying that keys or other items will scratch the front glass. We had to return the Sena Magnet Flipper because the case caused a reflection when using the flash.

    Sena Magnet Flipper (Croco Red)

    I got my wife a red Otterbox to protect her phone inside her purse.... :D

    The iSkin revo has a removable hard plastic shield on the front. I haven't had any experience with it, though.

    Any other ideas.......

    I would prefer a leather folding case like the Sena. I do not want the front to only be protected by a film.

    The otterbox just looks too complicated and bulky.

    Look at the waterfield designs suede jacket. There is a post here with a review.

    I'd use some painters tape to cover the back camera lens and flash while in her purse, because that area is not protected. Otterbox design oversight apparently.

    I've got my iPhone in a case but I put it into a Foofpod for when I carry it in a bag. It was a bit of a tight fit at first (the case is rubbery so that also contributed) but now it's perfect.

    Or you can always go with an ugly leather flip case.

    My wife does the same thing...just tosses the phone in her purse. She needed protection, but also didn't want it too bulky. What had worked perfectly is the new iSkin Solo case with a screen shield. No scratches...good protection...little bulk.

    no matter what you put around it, nothing is safe when entering one of those things...

    I use a iFrogz Luxe Lean case with no screen protector so when I put it in my purse or backpack etc. I put it in one of those microfiber bags that you put sunglasses in which also works as a good cleaning cloth too.

    Might wanna check out the SGP illuzion or argos or valencia cases.

    They are leather and have a flip design very similar to the vaja cases, but a lot less money. They are also hand made and good quality. I have the SGP pouch in vintage leather and it is awesome. :D

    Echo the above, I purchased the green iFrogz Luxe Lean case for my better half; had it a day/two since the iP4 released, no screen protector. In & out of a few purses and back pockets, not a scratch anywhere.

    Otterbox Commuter.

    Just don't get anything with a magnet clasp. It fü cks up GPS accuracy.

    x2. Got my gf a pink bumper and after a week's use, that thing was so F-up that it seems like it's been a year of use. But better the bumper than the phone. I'm also using PS shield to cover front and back, which of course, is also scratched up...

    I still need some more options for a case for my wife's purse that protects all sides.

    Why not a full body skin, like ghost armours full body skin? I've been using one for about a month & a half and it's been great since day 1. I highly recommend it. Haven't had any yellowing even though I do keep my hands very clean and nobody else touches it. Hardly any orange peel effect what so ever and will easily protects all parts of the phone from scratches.
