Thread: Invisible Shield + Case??

  1. #1
    Default Invisible Shield + Case??
    I'm looking into upgrading to the iPhone 3G and so I'm naturally looking for ways to protect it. I plan on getting the full body Zagg InvisibleShield (I've been using it since before it was Zagg) but from experience with the iPhone 2G and from what I've read, finding a hard case that can accommodate the InvisibleShield under is is near impossible.

    So my question is, what hard cases work with the full body InvisibleShield (or equivalent, ie: best skins ever, etc.)?

    I'd like to assemble a list of cases that work with the FULL BODY InvisibleShield for all to use.

    I've tired to find out about the Griffin Wave with no luck (anyone tried it with the I.S.?) and I've read mixed thoughts with regards to the Incase slider....what's everyone's thoughts?

    Switcheasy Rebel and Neo work. Tight fit, but work.

    Vaja iVolution works too.

    Do not get the Switcheasy Neo. I have had 3 of them and the plastic of the external skeletons(the piece that runs top-to-bottom over the rest of the case) keep breaking.

    Haha, take it easy on your cases....I've used one for 4 months no problem.

    Default Griffin Wave & InvisibleShield
    Thank you all for the great feedback. I know most of the silicone cases work, but I don't like silicone so that's not really an option for me.
    So nobody has any experience with the I.S. and the Griffin wave?

    I must have gotten a bad batch then because I haven't dropped them or anything like that. It seems that the plastic becomes brittle and starts chipping away. I really love the look and feel of the cases so it is a bummer.

    I am using Invis Shield under a new Griffin hard case call the reflective. It looks just like your iPhone has the chrome bezal ample cutouts and it hella strong. Dropped my phone off a table and it fell aprox 4-5 feet b4 it hit TILE. I thought for sure it would be cracked or broken... The case didnt even seperate OR scratch! If not for the combo of the two I would be onto iPhone #8.
    Highly recommended, tight fit but wnen it locks IT LOCKS.
    Hope this helped... 'so many cases not enough phones.'

    its your lucky day. i have the invisible shield and 3 griffin waves. (blue, white, and pink)






    it fits very snug and if you move your case too much the zagg comes loose. mine got so dusty underneath that i took the back off. i just keep the zagg on the front.

    anyways, isnt there a new iphone coming out in july?
    personally id just wait for that. the 3g isnt that amazing, and the shell is bad quality. i have like 5 cracks, 5000 scratches, and you may have noticed my silent switch fell off (after 3 weeks of owning it!!). i have a;ways had it in a case and i used to always treat it with car (until i found the 5th crack). now i dont really care about it.

    so you should probably just wait for the new iphone if there is one and know that you can do your best to protect your 3G but it will probably still end up with some scratches or cracks.
    I am not a jailbreak n00b
    I like to drink iPhoneahol...
