    I am, I hate cases. I think the only thing I'll put on my touch will be a screen protector.

    Not my iPod Touch, but I do use my iPhone while naked and my iPhone has a Marware case.

    I'm rocking it naked until I get the 99 cent silicone case, and replace it under warranty (for clicking and light leak problems) when the case arrives. Then I'll put the case right out of the box and zero scratches! :D This is too thin for me, I need at least a rubbery case(and not thick) to get a grip

    I've never ever used a case on any iPod, I don't like the feel of cases, and they make the device thicker, I'd rather have it naked

    I've owned mine since the 14th an so far the only damage is a couple light scratches on the back, If Apple was already selling cheapish iPod touch 4 case when I ordered mine I probably would've gotten it but I couldn't find any so oh well

    I'm curious why Apple didn't make a case for the iPod touch. there's the iPad case and the bumper but no iPod touch case... hmmm

    I rock it naked half the time. Though when I'm at work, and out and about, I put a case on it so i can set it down anywhere without worrying about the surface raping the chrome.

    Let us know how your return goes. I have two clicking iPods, but no light leaks.

    How bad are your light leak problems?

    Right now it's naked but I plan on putting a screen protector on, and maybe something really thin and clear on the back, similar to the screen protector. I too hate thicker cases.

    Only leaving it naked until my case arrives. I can't stand the fact that the back is extremely scratch and fingerprint prone. With my old iPod touch, I didn't have to worry about that.

    I would leave it naked IF the back isn't scratched so easily, but I'm satisfied with my Belkin GripVue. :rolleyes:

    The device is so thin that I almost find it hard to hold without a nice case.

    I hate soft rubber cases, makes it hard to get in and out of my pocket.

    Just picked up the Griffin Reveal which is nice.

    I also like that this case, and most cases, allow you to lay the iPT face-down.

    (Also have a screen protector on my iPT)


    P.S. OP, your thread is not turning out as you expected...right?

    I actually thought this would happen. It's understandable that people use cases. I guess I'm in the minority that doesn't use cases

    Except for some screen and back protectors (mostly just thin skins), I'm keeping mine au natural.

    I found a little sleeve bag at Target today that's perfect for keeping it protected in my purse. I even have room to stick my MiFi and a dustcloth in a separate pocket.

    My iPad has lived inside its Apple case since I bought it. Works ok but makes the device a bit bulkier than I'd like. So my iPod is roaming free.

    I'm not thinking of reselling it. My Touch replaces an old HP iPaq PocketPC I had been using the last 3-4 years. I figure I'll use it until I can't anymore and then pass it along to a niece or nephew.

    I can't find any cases at where I am. It already has a few little scratches on the back but it doesn't really other me.

    What i really want a case for, is to cover the light leak!

    Not really noticeable, two small dots that will add up to a millimeter or so that is only visible from right angle.

    I use a noname sock like the Apple ones. That way it is scratch-proof and can get naked in 1 sec. :D

    Dust is starting to get between the crack of the glass and bezel. I just took scotch table and ran it along the sides so that no more dust can come in while my case is arriving.

    The iPod touch is a beautiful piece of hardware that I'd like to show off naked but now I'm beginning to see why cases sell so well.

    Some people don't resell. I always give my older devices to family members whenever I upgrade.
