    Post Best Iphone 3G Case
    I need some help picking out a case to but.. I want good protection but not alot of bulk.

    no clips, any material .."I am currently using the capsule rebel which is silicone/plastic" case only, I already bought screen protectors.. but if you recommend one I will definitely check it out
    Price range i am looking to spend less then $40



    Thanks in advance

    I liked the agent 18 eco shield a lot. It was easy to get on, didn't add much bulk, and can fit over screen protectors.

    lol honestly its because I got sooo used to the sliders.. I have 3 of them. Gunmetal, White and matte/rubberize black..
    While I LOVE them each in their own way..

    The Noel case has NO lip in front so it makes using the phone SO much easier-
    My finger can slide right off the side without hitting the lip that is on the Slider-
    I never thought/relized that was an issue until the lip was gone!


    The back is very very form fitting so there isnt an difference in thickness when holding it.... Only time I notice it is when my finger finds the Hole for the Apple logo!

    does the case add more grip?

    I also do not like the bulky cases, nor do I like the clips or anything.
    I have a Incipio case and I LOVE IT!! because there isn't much too it. I have dropped my phone numerous times and my phone is still perfect.

    The link below is the exact case I have.
