    Title says it all. Now that the antenna issues has blown over a bit, are you using a case or are you going naked? I just like the design of the phone way too much to use a case and cover it. Luckily, I've never held my phone in a manner that would cause me to cover the antenna.

    Wish there was an option for "Both". I swap back and forth.

    The antenna issue does bug me some but I love the naked phone look.

    On the flip, with a case I don't have to worry how I hold the phone and the phone is easier to hold with a little added bulk (I have big hands).

    You crazies who are going naked, is your iPhone 4 insured or are you just taking the risk?

    My original iPhone, iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS lived their whole lives naked. Only reason a case even crossed my mind with the 4 is the antenna junk.

    What is the point of buying a beautiful phone like the iPhone if you're going to stuff it all up in a case it's whole life?

    Naked. I've always felt that every iPhone was way too sexy to cover up with any type of case. Matter of fact, I use all of my phones naked. Holster case on the belt for work and meetings, but other than that, naked all the way!

    generally both. If I am just sitting at my desk at work I use my phone naked. If I am working with power tools, etc at work I keep my phone on my desk :p. If I go out anywhere I use a case (iFrogz), and if I am drinking I use an Otterbox :D

    I use mine in the case 90% and 10% naked like while sitting on the couch so I will not ruin it or drop it.

    I'd probably keep it naked but I let my 4 y/o son play games on it. Thus, a case for me! :)

    I'm going to start out with a bumper but I most likely will end up taking it off and going naked.

    Just a bumper. I refuse to put a case on it at all.

    I'm going to use a case.

    My free bumper should arrive soon. I've already accidentally knocked my iPhone off of a table once and have a small dent in the metal antenna on one corner.

    Plus, in my house the signal is low, so the antenna issue is a problem for me. With the iPhone 3GS I didn't have an issue, but with the iPhone 4 I usually drop to "No signal" when holding the phone normally.

    I dropped my 3g on at least 20 occasions with a case on it and it suffered no ill-effects. As much as I dislike having a case on my lovely iP4 - I figure 20 drops would see the end of it.

    Reception improvement is a necessity in my house also.

    I have been using a bumper since I purchased it. I ordered one of the metallic protectors for the back that looks really cool. Once this arrives I am going to take off the bumper and apply this to protect the back when I sit it down on a hard surface. I really don't think the bumper will do much to protect the phone from a nasty fall anyway. I also keep mine in a belt holster most of the day while at work.

    I am going with InvisaSheild on the back and antena edges. The phone is just to sexy to cover up...even with just a bumper. "For me" the IS reduces the bar drop enough that the phone is usable.

    When I am not using my phone, it is usually in a leather case. Have done that with my original iPhone and my iPhone 3G. Plan on doing the same with my iPhone 4 I got today. :)
