    it sounds sexual, but i mean like. i have a hard clear case on my phone now, but i feel it takes away from the feel of the phone. I bought a front crystal film cover from apple, but im worried about the back.

    the thing is. i always get a new phone every year, so if apple comes out with a new one in summer ill def. be getting it.

    also im very careful with it, so im not sure i would drop it.

    what should i do?

    should i order a back cover skin for the phone?

    Ive got a 3G White, been naked ever since launch, no scratches whatsoever.

    If, like you say you are careful with it, you'll be fine, stop worrying and enjoy the phone in all its nakedness!!!!:D

    Why not just put a skin on it. Barely noticeable on a white iPHone.

    mine has been naked since launch week . few scratches on the back from my clumsiness and drops but the screen is still flawless, i even left my first gen iphone naked at all times and the screens never got noticeable scratches.

    I was naked since launch, but have since fell in love with the whole series of SwitchEasy cases. So now i just alternate between all of them and naked when im home. Depending on my moods i switch them out and also where im going for the day. if i want less bulk but protection ill use the Switcheasy colors. If im going out where i know ill be using it often or laying it down or outdoor activities ill use the capsule rebel or capsule neo. Mostly when im at home i leave it naked to be able to dock it. I rock the bestskinsever full shield.

    I have yet to meet a person who has not ever dropped their phone. One of the clip-on back protectors would probably be your best bet. They are thin and don't take up much room, but it'll give the back enough protection from scratches and the inevitable drop.

    I've had my iPhone slip out of my breast pocket and skid across a bathroom floor. 0 scratches.

    Trust me, there's a reason why the stereotypical test for a diamond is to see if it can scratch glass. And the iPhone front is glass.

    Been Naked with my EdgePhone since May.

    after buying three 3G cases, i've decided to go naked. i just hate cases. i do have a crystal film on the front. i never used a case for my 1st gen, and i couldn't deal with one on the 3G. i have some iPod socks that i slide it in every now and then, but for the most part, she's buck naked.

    CASES SUCK.

    (the one and only case i would ever still use, like if i went camping or something, is the Power Support Air Jacket. you can barely tell it's there)

    I think I might get a back film cover but idk which to choose. I don't want one that turns yellows.

    I gave up being over protective with devices a long time ago, when I had my iPod 5G Video. Just enjoy the device as intended. Skins may be cool initially, but when the edges inevitably begin to peel and dirt gets into the sides, you find yourself removing it anyway.
    Cases are even more pointless. If you bought a Ferrari, would you put a rubber body kit on it?

    You should know if you need one rather than asking strangers.

    Yes, if you need advice then asking people who may have valuable experiences to share is one of the most stupid things you can do.

    Don't worry about a case, but I do suggest a BSE and some type of screen protector.

    I Dont think going to get an iPhone Naked will help you get one.

    Just go in regular clothers, or maybe fancy dress?:cool:

    Mines Naked atm, just got it :p but i may put it in my Video Slip Case i still have.

    I tried to rock a case on my white 3G, and I just couldn't do it.

    Removing the case revealed it had scratched the phone more than being in my pocket ever could.

    Screw the case man. Maybe rock a clear film or whatever, but I personally don't think a case is worth the extra size, weight and ugliness.

    i have dropped my iphone a couple of times and i was rocking a BSE On the back, and it still managed to dent it a couple of times with a couple of scratches on the front too. I have replaced my iphone (dead pixels) and have decided to stick ti in a incase Slider. the slider looks very good in my opinion and it will protect my iphone from drops and stuff so when i do sell it when the new iphone comes out it will be scratch/dent free. and to the person who said would you put a rubber case on a Ferrari.. seriously, totally not the right analogy

    the Contour Flick I have scratched the back of my 3G. Incase Sliders have a rep for scratching the back too.
