Cool What kind of case do you have for your iPhone?

So I'm pretty sure I'll be getting an iPhone 4S within the next few months (yay!) and was wondering what kind of cases/wallets/etc. you have for yours. Links & pictures would be awesome! Thanks!

BTW, I'm not looking for big bulky ones that cover the whole phone just to protect it...I'm a rebel and like the thinner, cuter stuff. LOL

I like the thinner ones too but after I ruined my old iphone I ended up getting the Otterbox Defender

The Otterbox Commuter is thinner and doesn't have the bulky inside case but I bought mine off Amazon and I got a much better price on the (more expensive) Defenders

Otterbox defender on mine too...I went through a lot of cases and it's the only one I liked. It's a great case.

dont have an iphone but I bought a disney plastic case for my Ipod touch. It has tinkerbell on it. I got it at walmart. It is all shiny silver behind it and it has no scratches or fingerprints at all because I have had the case on since it was bought

I have this one from the CM Store and really like it, it's made by Uncommon and is pretty sturdy. Rob has the Otterbox Commuter for his and likes it as well. I've been thinking about ordering myself a custom one from Uncommon, there are tons of premade templates out there that you can customize and they are about the same price as most of the other cases.

I have a skin (vinyl piece, totally decorative) from skinit.com that I designed with my kids' picture and a few embellishments to make me happy, with a thin clear case over it - something very inexpensive I ordered off ebay.

I have one of those rubber skins that fit and leave the screen exposed. But I recently just ordered a custom-designed plastic one. Can't wait to see it. Of course I had to use SSD goodies, lol. You can see it here.

Nakey!

I have bought case after case and I always ditch them.

I listen to Spotify offline from my iphone in my car using an aux cable, and I can't ever seen to find a case I like that I can get that aux cable into without wiggling the case off every time I get in the car. Too much of a hassle!

I have a white cover with black polka dots. I didn't have one for 2 weeks and the back of my shiny 4S is all scratched. I'd rather protect it than scratch it more lol.

I use screen protectors as well, they are scratched within weeks so I'd dread to think how my screen would end up with out one.

Otterbox Defender for me. I've used skins and other cases, but the Defender feels solid and protective.

You can with an otterbox

I also love that the defender has a built in screen protector so you don't have to fool with getting one on just right and dealing with air bubbles and lint and stuff. Seriously..it's the best case I've ever used.

I have a basic black rubbery one on mine.

and as a visiting nurse, my phone is always out, being used, kept nearby on the seat of the car or on my leg as I drive. It's rounded enough on the edges to protect the screen if dropped and the rubber surface keeps it from sliding off of things like a living room chair, my seat in the car, my leg.

I bought a case from Uncommon, and I love love LOVE it so much I can't say enough. It has holes in all the right places, LOL (per Lena's note, above)... and it's fun to look at... and it's not bulky at all... and I've dropped my phone 2x now onto hardwood floors and/or concrete garage floors, and my phone is AOK (as is the case!). I recommend it highly. I even scrapped about it back in January on one of my Project Life pages... LOL...



ETA: I have the "capsule" version of the Uncommon case for the iPhone 4S

BONUS FOR YOU: if you end up wanting an Uncommon case, PM me and I have a 20% off code you can use. I'm not affiliated w/ the company in any way, it's just a code they sent me when I got my case (I was like, "hey, couldn't you have given that to ME to use?! gahhh!") and I haven't needed to use it, and probably won't ever. So... if you (or anyone else around these parts?) wants it... just let me know!

Mine is also naked. I asked about one when I bought and the sales guy told me, you bought insurance, if anything happens to it, just bring it in to us. So I didn't buy one, but I do kinda one a custom one. Artscow has them now and they are super cheap;

I love, love, love my Otterbox Defender. It feels super secure, especially when my son is playing with the phone. But, as a huge cupcake fanatic, I just ordered this one from Case Mate. I'll be switching back and forth a lot, I'm sure.

I have this one:



It's a great case! I've dropped my phone countless times, and I know this case has saved my phone from certain death.

ETA: Looks like, according to the reviews, that might be a knock-off version. Mine came from the Apple store, so I know it's the real deal!

I have a Speck Pixelskin HD for my iphone4 and the regular Pixelskin for my old iphone3g that the boys use as an itouch. I have dropped my phone so many times and it just bounces.

I don't like the feel of rubbery cases so I've always used the cases from incase. Right now I'm using this Crystal one:



I also have a fabric case I made that I put it in when it's in my bag.

I have a speck. Like this one, but the purples are opposite. I love it. It slides into my pocket for recess duty, but it's cute, too. And protective. And I can plug in my aux cable for spotify in the car.

I love the satin CandyShell speck cases, but wish it came in turquoise/white.

My first case was a speck candyshell in pink and purple. I did like it, but again with the cable issue.

It's not that my cases don't have a hole in the right spot (LOL Laura) but rather, I just can't get the aux cord *all* the way in without removing the case. The plastic, not metal part, of my aux cable might just be too fat.

I've had countless cheaply ones with a range of colors/themes. Then got a commuter for my old 3GS. When we got back last week and I got a 4S I immediately got an Otterbox defender. It is big and bulky but I'm rough on phones. :/ they have different colored ones. I might switch mine and get a more colorful one eventually.

I have the iSkin Solo for my iPhone 4. I've tried many different cases and am very picky about my cases, but I just love the quality of the iSkin cases. I also have an antiglare screen protector on the front. The holes are in all of the right spots and I have never had any issues with any accessories.
