    It doesnt look horrible to me, but I wouldn't buy it. Mostly because I use cash too much for it to replace my wallet. But if you only use credit cards it may not be a bad thing to buy.

    Speck makes good products so if looks like a case you like or need buy it. me I like having my wallet/checkbook so it's not for me.

    i choose "No" because it looks bulky. however, i just purchased an iPocket wallet for my iphone 4, and thats more bulky than that thing. the ipocket does let you still use the phone without a case, though.

    If sleek is your thing then this isn't the case for ya. It's pretty beefy (almost OtterBox Defender beefy). But, since it's Speck, they make very good cases and their customer service is fantastic so you'll be good on that front. I passed on this case specifically because it's a smidge too bulky for me and, most importantly, if you lose your phone, you also lose your cards and then you're completely SOL.

    If you want something slimmer, but equally efficient, Case-Mate has a case sorta like this one but a lot slimmer than the Speck case. For this case, you can find tons of knock offs on either Deal Extreme or SW-Box for a lot cheaper than the $35 Case-Mate wants.

    I had this case and returned it. I loved it because it not longer required that I carry a wallet, but it also flaked previous Candyshells and that didn't sit well with me for $40.

    What about phones destroying the magnetic strip on cards? No mention of any protection from that!

    If I remember correctly your card lies on a rubber type of material.

    Thanks for the posts guys.

    I totally agree the case looks bulky compared to other cases. I'm leaning on the side of going for a completely different case. Looks like I'll be scouring best but and other shops throughout the day searching for a case.

    As of now I'm meaning away from Therese simply due to the bulkiness the case provides.

    Not bad for combo wallet and it's not leather. Price is okay too.

    I ended up grabbing the InCase KickStand Case.

    Super slim. I love it.

    I personally think that these kinds of cases, that are multifunctional, are lame. They look stupid and when you lose your phone you also just lost your cash/cards/ID. Just carry a wallet.

    But you already knew that, otherwise you wouldn't be asking here ;)

    Nice one.

    Bulky cases suck IMHO, exept when you go hiking and use something like an Otterbox. But these card cases add bulk with no added protection.

    For you credit cards you could try an All-Ett wallet, they are ultra slim.

    This is the ultimate "PLEASE ROB ME" case.

    Can't imagine wanting to flash my credit cards and iPhone around on the street like that.

    For what it is, it looks great. It would be perfect for running as I hate jogging around with a wallet. Maybe even for just rolling to the baseball game. Only need the ID and debit card and a little cash anyway.

    Hmmm....

    You know... it isn't like any potential thief doesn't know that most guys have a wallet on them. And that the vast majority of those wallets have credit/debit cards and cash in them.
