    I'm so paranoid about dropping my new iphone 4s or it getting water damage. :(Anyone have the perfect case or have never dropped their phone?

    If you don't mind the bulk - I love the Otterbox Defender Series Case - Wonderful for protection and best customer service from any business I have ever dealt with. I almost feel bad, how they have treated me.

    Same here. Though an iPhone original, which I prefer to call the iPhone Classic now! A 3GS and now 4S.

    I switch between naked and a Marware case depending on what I'm doing. Usually the case is for the gym because it came with a clip and armband.

    get an otterbox commuter and don't look back. Protection without too much bulk and covers the charging port and the headphone port.

    For the first 6 months or so that I had an iPhone (actually this dates back to when I had just an iPod touch) I was so paranoid about protecting the devices, I had the Zagg screen protectors on them and some really protective cases... then I eventually realized that I don't ever drop my phone. I scaled down my case to a basic snap-on (which adds essentially no bulk) and when I got the 4S didn't bother putting a screen protector on it... the screen feels much nicer naked.

    Bottom line is, everybody is different. Some people are prone to dropping theirs more often, which is fine. Others tend not to ever drop their devices, so extreme protection does nothing but add unnecessary bulk and in most cases, unsightliness.

    I really like the design and protection the commuter offers but I don't like that it doesn't come with a built in screen protector. If only the defender was slightly thinner :rolleyes:

    ----------

    When I had my ipod touch I never dropped it and I had a simple silicone case on it. But one day I put it in my purse and forgot it was in there and my purse got thrown at the wall. Few hours later I go to get my ipod and the screen is shattered. :(

    I don't use a case. I use a screen protector however. I've dropped my phone multiple times but not from a high distance. It's still intact with no damages or anything. It's pretty sturdy. It usually falls out of my hoodie pocket when I'm bending down and it falls either on it's side or face down or the back. It's still looks good. But it doesn't bounce. Hopefully I just didn't jinx myself.

    Nope, no cracks or anything. Probably just lucky. I have the iPhone 4S, I have always been without a case since the first iPhone and I upgrade with every iteration.

    I've ran naked to the vapor and never dropped mine on anything but carpet but it's never broke even being naked. My wife dropped hers with a bumber on carpet and the screen shattered so I think it all depends on what you drop it on and where it hits. If it hits a corner your pretty much done.

    I find it nearly impossible to not drop my phone at least a couple times over its life. iPhones are actually pretty durable, I've never cracked the screen on any of my iPhones/iPod touches but it seems like everyone else I know has. If you take care of it then iPhones are really durable and will last a long time.

    I drop it all the time from my lap/desk onto carpet. Never outside on concrete though.

    I'm not falling for this trap. You want me to say never ever, and then tomorrow report back how my phone exploded into a million pieces after dropping it...... Not on my watch!!!!! I won't fall for it.

    Have you dropped it on concrete? did it survive?

    ----------

    Do you use a case?
