    So on launch day I picked up the Rocketfish case, and Griffin reveal from Best Buy. I ended up hating the rocketfish because it wasn't flush along the sides of the phone which really bugged me. The reveal I bought in white, and the material got dirty really really fast, and the clear plastic material was cheap and easily scratched. So both of those went back.

    I then purchased the Incipio silicrylic at at&t. I loved the protection of the case but it wasn't a very attractive case. I bought that one to hold me over for the Speck Candyshell.

    Fast forward to today, I have a black/grey Speck Candyshell, Belkin Grip Vue, and 2 Apple Bumpers in green and black.

    The Speck is a keeper, even though it affects the flash(Speck is sending me a revised model) and it is also a bit thick, I really love the protection. I really wanted a thin protective case which is where the Belkin Grip Vue comes in, but it doesnt fit well around the phone either, just like the Rocketfish. The bumpers I will probably keep, the green fits amazing, nice and snug, and everything is a 100% perfect line up. I have not tried the black yet as you can see.

    Lets see your cases!

    personally, Id take all that money and spend it on one of those vapor cases from element case with the carbon fiber add on (and probably still have $40 to spare)

    Have the Belkin Grip Vue and a Apple Bumper. I also have a cheap eBay TPU case on the way and I am anxious to see what incase comes out with as well as waiting on the re-release of the candyshell. The Belkin is great for protection, but a little bulky IMO. I like the bumper but I am still afraid to drop the phone in it. I am hoping the eBay TPU case will be thinner than the belkin as I had one for my 3GS that I liked. From there we will see what incase releases. The candyshell will be my fallback. I also have a full body bestskinsever on the way.

    I'm waiting for the new Vaja line. Their cases are amazing. They are on the higher end of the price scale but you get what you pay for.

    Candyshell black

    I too have this case, and Speck is also sending me a new one (to fix the flash problem)- they said you can fix it yourself with a black Sharpie, until you get the replacement- it DOES help a lot).

    I had a carbon fiber case that I bought from Macsales.com for my 3GS- loved it, and they said they will have these in the next 2-3 weeks.

    I love the protection of the Candyshell, but it makes my iPhone look like anyones Blackberry. At least with the curves of the 3G and 3GS, people knew you had an iPhone even in a case. I also dislike how thick the case makes the phone, although I had a bumper and sold it because it offers almost no protection from a drop.

    I'm thinking about getting a bumper case and was wondering if it was loose around the sides or not, and if it is what other companys make cases like the bumper that may be more snug.

    Who says that there's a bad economy? Plenty of cash on hand to get multiple cases!

    i will admit i have expendable cash but i can't find myself buying tons of cases. well not yet at least. i have bought a ton of cases and returned them after trying them out for a day or 2.

    I thought about the Vapor case and even though I have the cash for one I can't grasp the idea of spending $100 for just a case.

    I like the CandShell and I actually like how it makes it more brick like.

    Bumpers I don't like them because of their lack of protection (I've witnessed). Although I saw the store has all colors now and that orange one looks cool.

    I just have the CandyShell (with a replacement coming by August), PixelSkin (temp case), and I gave away my Incipio Silicrylic in baby blue to a friend who desperately needed a case.
