    hey guys. a friend told me about this site and thought i should check it out. after flipping page by page, i realized alot of you guys stress alot about scratches, loose buttons, and other trivial reasons. this isn't a bashing or trolling thread at all. im just curious on how many of you guys don't care and just use the phones. like scratches, chips, etc etc, whatever, just not caring for wear and tear.

    i realize that some of you guys bought the phone on a non contract price and want to protect the value but if you ask me, you enjoy the phone a tad bit less when you worry about superficial things like hairline scratches and your volume/power button wiggling a bit more. (other examples include stressing about placing the phone on the table or giving it to someone to play with lol..)

    like i said, im just curious if some of you guys use it with any worries or stress. aka as you guys put it "naked" with no protectors or bulky cases. just pockets lol.

    thanks for listening! btw cool site!

    I don't mind scratches or minor damage. I would be peeved if my screen shattered, but so far I've been lucky with my iPhone. I like to use it without a case and so far have had no problems (although I've dropped it on the carpet a few times). I have several minor scratches on the back of the phone, but it doesn't matter to me as long as the phone works.

    yeah, thats how my mind works. use it, rough it up, whatever. enjoy it. if it breaks, just pay the 200. lets you really enjoy the phone.

    not bashing the people that over analyze and stress because i used to be like that. just wanted to see if there were alot of iphone users that think the way i do regarding phone handling lol (found one now though hahah ;))

    The ability to use it like a phone is my first priority. So far the iP4 fails at that.
