So, finally breaking down, retiring the 'feature phone' + iPod Touch that has served me well for many years. Doing so before Verizon changes the unlimited data to 2gb Data caps. Trying to decide which case to get, and as many have noted, there are a lot of options. I'm less concerned with "sleek and slim" then I am with protection and "ease of use". I want to make sure the phone is protected. I'm a geologist and between lab's taught, and field work, I tend to be kinda hard on things. That said, I'm also pretty aware of my surroundings so I've never scratched the current phone/ipod touch combo, so it doesn't need to be super levels of protection. But I want a decent level of protection. I like the idea of the otterbox commuter, but I've heard a number of comments, particularly with regard to the headphone jack. I hate apple headphones, they're terribly uncomfortable, and I expect I'll use my phone as an ipod significantly more then as a phone, so if this is an issue it'll make the decision for me. The Candyshell seems to be nice, but I hear/read stories of people getting old keyhole cutouts from Amazon/ebay, and would rather avoid that. I know I can order directly from Speck, but that's $35 (and it's out of stock at speck atm!) vs. $20 for a Commuter. I'm heading overseas shortly, and I would like to have the phone/case before I leave.
