    I just wanted to get everyones thought on what the best hard case is. I've been doin some lookin and i see the otter box is usually a good choice but i dont want to get that much i like the belkin clear acrylic or w/e but i hear thats not so good.. so what do all of you think on a hard case that looks good but still lets you access all buttons and everything.. and is there one that you can use where the screen is protected but u can still use it??

    i'm not sure how much money you want to spend... but here is an option for about $5 shipped! i ordered it on a whim, not knowing how well made it would be, and i'm actually pleasantly surprised! it's a very generic aluminum case that covers most of the iphone. the inside of it is lined with foam to prevent scratches. i actually really like it!

    I bought clear cause I thought metal would cut down on connectivity.

    Seems to be working great for me. Besides, it's only $5... worth a shot, right?

    Here are some photos I took of it:

    how can they sell so cheap with free international shiping ? even shipping more costy then their product price. It is hard to beleive and trust the site. It is like they are paying me to have my case lolzz . I need more confirmation before i order from them

    beats me... i've placed two orders with them and have had great luck with the company. i'd recommend them. like i said, the only bad thing is it takes a couple weeks for your stuff to arrive.

    Wow, the site is incredibly cheap!

    Where are you ordering from billchase? I have just made an order, but I am in New Zealand - I sure hope this 'free international' shipping stands up and it isnt too much longer than 2 weeks (more so I hope it is actually sent!)

    2weeks you say? I sure hope they are legit, I just ordered 4 items for a total of $18 US - cheap! I just hope the overall product is of reasonable quality.

    I will report back delivery time and quality of the 4 products I ordered.

    yeah, it actually looks really good on the phone. it took me between 2 and 3 weeks for it to show up in the US. all the buttons are accessable, however, the volume/mute buttons are a little difficult to reach. you have to use your fingernail to switch them. i have not noticed any drop in signal since i started using this case.

    i'm in the US and yeah, it took between 2 and 3 weeks for it to arrive. let me know what you think of everything! so far i've ordered a rubber iphone case, the aluminum case, and a usb hub from them and have been pleased with everything.

    One thing I forgot to mention... it does come with a plastic clip for your belt that you can connect to the back of it. I'm just not using it because the plastic feels cheap and I prefer to just keep it in my pocket.

    i got an aluminum case off of ebay, and i'm having absolutely no problems at all.

    my only complaint is that the foam wasn't even, so the iphone sat somewhat crooked.

    solution?

    shaved down the foam until it sat straight.

    i get full edge reception, and wi-fi is completely unaffected.

    cost?

    about...$10...shipped
