    Sorry, another iPhone question from me! Have finally taken the plunge and my shiny new iPhone is due to arrive tomorrow :woohoo: Have ordered screen protector already from eBay but I have NO idea what case! I've looked at Apple, CPW, eBay and Play etc. and I like some of them but can't really get an idea of it without actually holding it!

    Can anyone recommend what cases they normally use?? Really I just want a plain black cover or similar, probably silicon but I'm open to suggestion!

    DH and I use a gear4 case which we bought from HMV. It is a black silicone case which pully protects the phone (it has a clear hard case part over the front too.) The front protector still allows you to use the touch screen very well.

    Interested in this since I have yet to find a case that does not spoil the feel of the phone. Hence mine is au naturale :goodvibes

    Thanks for the replies, guys!

    Danauk I never even thought of HMV, so thanks for that, have a had a quick look :)

    Funky dino, I've had a look at the Apple store as well, a couple I like but nothing jumping out at me!

    Would you guys say it's better with a silicon case or a plasticy type one?! I'll have a look around my local CPW, HMV etc. tomorrow and then most likely come back online.

    I'm not generally someone who drops their phone, although when I do I seem to do it spectacularly, lol. Phone I have just now, had for about a year when I was getting out of a car, dropped it touch screen down on a road, didn't realise and kicked it half way across a car park leading to it being scratched to bits! I don't really want something bulky but I don't want the case to smash/break if I drop it and obviously not protect the phone.

    Au naturale :rotfl: See I kind of agree, I don't really want one as a "fashion" accessory, more as a necessity as I don't want to spend so much on it then it ends up looking like it's been dragged through a hedge backwards!

    I am contemplating going "au naturale" myself with just a screen protector but I know I'll end up regretting it :rolleyes1

    The silicon case adds so bounce to it if u drop it hehe, also gives u better grip when holding it

    Well, i also do want the case to change the IPhone's feeling and my friend recommend the Dsstyles's Metallico series and it is of natural feeling.

    I don't really care about keeping the same feel, more interested in protecting it and it being my ipod Touch which is similar to the iphone. I use a leather Belkin cover, that covers it completely.
