    Just seeing how many people have a case for their iPhone/3G. I personally have one, but somewhat regret it not being "naked." Then again, if it's recommended I have a case, I'm glad I do.. so just seeing everyone else's situation.

    After being so "nearly perfect" about being careful on my iPhone 3G, I figured I will drop it eventually (after a near incident) so I bought a case :)

    My gf bought an Incipio Dermashot the day she picked up our 3G phones from the AT&T store, and I used a Marware CEO Premier that I purchased from eBay. After reading countless reviews on this forum, as well as iLounge, I purchased 4 Switcheasy Colors cases a few weeks ago and we've been using them ever since. Last week I received a Switcheasy Capsule Neo, and in all honesty I left it on my phone for about 30 min before removing it. I am back to using the Colors case. In fact I ordered 3 new colors. :apple:

    I'm siding with the Colors cases as well. I got a Capsule Rebel, which is a little more expensive compared to the Colors line but I've put on the Colors after using the Rebel for a week.
    I tried putting the Rebel back on and give it another spin but I switch it back to Colors after 5 minutes. Planning to get myself a stealth(black) Colors now.

    I said no, even though I have a holster.

    A belt clip is a must for me at work. Other than that I just slip it into my pocket all naked like.

    And sometimes when I don't have a pocket, I clip the holster to my pants waist.

    First naked, naked naked... then Orbino Strada tre. Best case ever, and it smells great.

    bought incipio silicryilic on iDay, than I bought Bodyguardz, than I bought a Sena Elaga and tore the clip off, than I bought a belkin silicone skin, and than I bought 2x capsule rebels.

    I guess you could say Im a case fiend, but they are all pretty nice and serve different purpsoes for the most part, the only one I really dont like is the incipio.

    Thank God I had a case on my baby. It took a nasty fall couple days ago, straight on the concrete. I gave it a quick look, and it looked ok. I removed the case (Belkin silicone) today, and found a nasty scratch on the silver living. The case itself is cracked on the inside. Looks like Im in need of a new case. Dang it.

    Yep, you can be as careful as possible, but that one accident will happen one day.

    Try the SwitchEasy Neo as a replacement. It's an awesome case.

    I've got a black Incase Protective Cover after having about a month and a half of nakedness. I thought it would be a good thing to have while using the phone at school.

    I'm very careful with all of my things, but it is good to have a case just in case. :)

    I dropped my 1st gen the very first time I went out with it (day after launch day)

    I had bought a case when I got the phone but I decided that naked was best. I got out of my car and dropped the phone out of my pocket as I was climbing out. Dented both top corners and the sim popped out. Its been in the case ever since.

    I have a griffin pouch but I am on the lookout for a nice quality leather pouch that wont bulk up the phone too much and the leather looks quality too. Any suggestions welcome

    So from someone who has dropped their phone I would suggest you get some sort of case (I kicked myself about it every day I had that phone)

    Really? Ive been looking at the iskin revo2. My roomies have the 1st one for the original iphone and they said its the best. One of them had dropped it so many times, and it still functions perfectly. Im still debating, but really leaning toward the iskin.

    I have many cases and use them all. I don't use the phone naked a) because I don't want to drop it and have it look like crap b) I have big hands and a case adds some needed bulk for a good grip.

    I have 2 cases. The pink speck case, and the naked clear case. I use them both it just depends on what I'm wearing. I'm obsessed with keeping my phone clean and clear of scratches. I think I have a problem LOL

    I don't even have my iPhone yet, but I already ordered a case. :) I've had 2 nice phones ever (including the iPhone) and I will only buy cases for 'nice' phones.
