    I thought it would just be easier if we could post pics, along with price and info on where to buy instead of posting 100+ threads on cases. Please keep the comments minimlal as this should just be a thread with pics and basic info.

    I'll start:

    Rocketfish hard case (black) Edit: Fixed.
    Purchased at Best Buy Mobile for $25
    Finish is smooth, doesn't scuff. Case is really thin, doesn't overlap the screen.

    I bought the case the same day as I got the phone, intended as a temporary case. I'm looking into getting the SGP soft clear or a Caze matte grey.

    Sorry for the crappy pics. These were taken at work with a coworkers GS2.

    It looks nice but very basic. I'm pretty sure you could find a case like that cheaper online.

    Does it hold the iPhone firmly at least?

    It is very basic, as for its intended purpose, just temporarily. This was just a launch case I found at the mall. Holds the phone VERY firm. No movement whatsoever.

    I will be returning it since I have 30 days, just waiting for the right case to show up.

    Thats actually the rocketfish hard case. Not the soft case.

    I have the same one and i like it quite a bit. I compared it to an incipio feather and it seems higher quality and the edges are smoother.

    There's a 30 day return on those? That's pretty awesome, never knew that.

    Smart move. ;)

    Psst... That's a rocketfish Hard Shell case.

    The soft shell is this one which is TPU.

    The hard shell actually does have a higher potential for scratching and since it has more exposed openings it can catch dirt that can rub against the aluminum. I got the actual soft shell. Good fit,looks nice.

    Cheap $10 cases bought from street vendors in Manhattan. These will do until the good ones are available.

    CaseCrown Glider Case, $10 ($4.99 s/h) on Amazon. I've stuck with CaseCrown from my 4S – the cases are sturdy and snug, make the phone look a bit more uniform, and are relatively inexpensive.

    i'm probably going to return it though. the sides are soft and flexible yet not that comfortable to hold. it is very "box-like".

    Yeah, I want one where everyone posts the pictures of their phones in the cases. One of those was 5 pages and only a few pictures. :(
