    Please post a link to the case you have got, or the one you think is the best for the iPhone 3G!

    The Ultra slim case. The UK Apple store list the black and pink for £25 with a delivery time of 2-3 weeks.

    The Sena cases website (in the USA) sell them for $30 in a range of colours (not all of them are readily available however). For those in the EU, they are doing a special offer of $10 delivery via FedEx. Even with the duty and VAT added, you are looking at no more than the Apple Store UK.

    I use the Nutshell case, Its not specifically designed for the iPhone, but its one of the best cases/pouches I have had. Its not a super sung fit, but good enough. I was using it with a Gen1 iPhone and now with the 3G version.

    I really like the clip as many other cases have a clip that sticks out and catches on things and breaks.

    High quality leather as well.

    The only problem is that then nobody see if you have a white or black iphone.

    Half the fun now is knowing you have a colored iphone.

    HOTNESS!!!!!!!

    Yea, I'm liking the WalletSkin case! I just wish they had more pictures. I'd like to see it from different angles and sides. I also didn't see any reference to a place for money. It mentions 4 credit cards, but what about money? I also wonder how hard it'd be to use the iPhone in the case.

    I like that Senacase with the wallet, but I think I'll wait a while ot see what additional cases emerge. On Friday, the Apple store only had a few. Today, 4 days later, there's a considerable amount of greater choices.

    Here's what I'm going to get: http://www.vajacases.com/home/home_en.html

    My Sena UltraSlim case just came in the mail today.

    At first, I was extremely worried. The case seemed incredibly tight and my iPhone was difficult to remove or put in. After some keeping it in for an hour or so, the leather seemed to wear in a bit.

    That said, this case is ridiculously good looking. The leather is top quality and the velvet inside adds a nice touch. If you don't mind getting used to the tightness of the case, I would definitely recommend checking this one out.

    First off, any pictures would be greatly appreciated.

    Also, is it easy to pull the phone out of it, or is it a two handed ordeal where you have to pull really hard?

    Check out Vaja's cases, they're amazing.

    http://www.vajacases.com

    The only reason I wouldn't get one now is because it takes a while for them to make the case for you. They're all made hand-made when you order them, with thousands of different personalization options. I'll probably pick up a Sena ultraslim pouch for my iPhone 3G for now and get a Vaja ivolution SP later on.

    i am thinking of ordering the elega white case to match my white iphone. It is the third case i will purchase, and hopefully this one will be a keeper. I bought the incase leather case but its to bulky. then i got the krusell holster case but its not magnetic, it uses a button and i do not want to scratch it.

    The Elega will probably be too bulky, too. It looks like it adds somewhere over double the thickness to the iPhone. The ultra-slim pouch will probably be a better idea.

    Yeah. It's really too bad that the cases take 15-45 days to make, depending on which one you get. If it was under 30 I would get something from the Apple Store and return it when the Vaja came.

    yes it is bulky but with the sena case i do not have to keep it in the case at all times. When i use the phone i can take it out unlike my other case.

    You can do that with the Sena ultra-slim pouch, too. I'm the same way. I always keep mine out of my case when I actually use it, and keep it in there when it's in my pocket and anywhere else. I actually have my iPhone 3G covered in the cleaning cloths that came with my iPhones, and the box top over it to keep it from getting dust or something. Yeah...

    They'll both provide almost equal protection. Great against scratches and scuffs, but bad for dropping the iPhone. The Elega Pouch is pretty thick, and takes a lot away from how thin the iPhone usually is.
