    With all the talk of cases and screen protectors and various ways to cradle, carry or otherwise tote an Apple iPhone around, I am curious how many people are still "running naked" with their iPhone and loving it.. meaning, no ill effects or notable marks to show for it (BTW, I am in this group.)

    I am also curious who might have gone from "running named" to "wearing protection" as a result of scuffs, damage or other ill-gotten markings on their (previously naked) iPhone. What scratched your iPhone? Where was it scratched?

    Thanks for sharing, sorry for the puns.

    No protection and still scratch free. I have my Iphone in my pocket. The only thing that shows any scratches is the chrome other then that still looks new.

    I have used the silicone case from Speck which is fine for about a week then the silicone gets soft and crap gets between the case and the iPhone. Nowhere near worth any more than a couple of bucks but you are out 30+ if you buy it in an Apple store. In addition the belt clip thing that comes with these is not worth a turd unless you want to either loose or get your iPhone stolen. (mine was gone from my belt within a week of buying it. Thank god for AMEX buyers protection.) I switched to the leather casemate but my computer bag snagged on it and the side near the top broke. I am back to naked in the pocket. I do have a screen protector which I recommend. It is the only one sold at the Apple stores and it works a treat. I have a couple of tiny dings on the back where I dropped it on the cement once but they are near invisible. No more $30.00 phone cases for me thanks.

    I alternate between running nekkid and using a Marware Sidewinder.

    completely naked here. no screen protector or anything. I have noticed some weird stuff on the camera lens. Not scratches, but it looks like some kind of coating wearing off. started happening about a week after I bought it. the chrome apple on the back has a couple of scratches but the screen is perfect. I keep it in my pocket by itself.

    i have tried the silicone skins (ok, very thin), hard crystal case (didn't protect from a drop) and finally settled on the best skin ever for the back and chrome coverage. I also have a crystal screen protector which they have on ebay and at the apple store. the hard crystal 2-piece case totally failed on me...i dropped it from ~12inches (getting out of the car) and the case split open and left my phone sitting nekked on the street with a few chinks in it's armor to show for the failure.

    I love the best skin ever - allows me to protect the phone (and chrome) without adding any bulk. it is also very nicely slide resistant which helps when leaving the phone on non-flat surfaces

    It's nice to run around naked for awhile.

    But, I bought this canvas case w/ a belt clip built in. Wanna say ~30.
    It's a little bulky, but it kept myPhone safe.
    I was able to walk around the entire day at Hershey Park with it on my belt.
    Roller coasters and all, safe.

    I find it hard to use things that require touching right on the edge of the screen cause the case is raised from the phone.

    Otherwise, I prefer protection + it adds some style w/o modding

    when i get my iphone, i buy about 3 cases for it since i always want different options to carry it and different styles for different activities. but i'm thinking i really like my iphone naked (except for a brando screen protector) and the vaja pouch case i just got works really well. plus, i have the pro-clip cradle to mount the iphone in my car on the dashboard, and taking it in and out of anything but a pouch case isn't practical. so, i think i'll pass on this i-volution case for the moment, but i'm sure i'll continue to be tempted and will probably break down and get one anyway in the next few months...

    dude...check out the best skin ever...i know i'm sounding like a broken record, but it's the same as running nekked without having to worry about scratching or any of that. they're only 9 bucks or so with shipping...
