    I typically don't use a case, but after breaking basically every phone I've ever had, I figured I'd get one for my iphone 4. I'm using the incase slider and love it.

    Any hard slider case by Incase. Buy online from Amazon and save a lot of money.

    The OtterBox is like the Fushigi Ball: stupid and absolutely worthless.

    Any silicon/stretchable case works fine since it keeps the padding thing and doesnt add any size to the phone

    Got a Otterbox Defender for my dad and a Splash Cruiser from Amazon for me since I don't like bulky cases. Looks and works great.

    Do not, I repeat do not ever use the griffin clear cases. I used them previously on a 3G, & 3GS and they fit so tight that when removed left alot of scuffing and scratches on back of phone that won't come off. I use a speck candy shell case currently.

    I think the iPhone 4 wont scratch like previous models did so easily. The back is coated and glass just as the touchscreen is. I think apple fixed the easily scratched issue I hope , the new coating is super nice about not getting fingerprints on it & easy to clean off with minimal effort required.

    iPhone 4 cases and 3G/3GS cases are very different because of the shape of the phones. The incase slider line was great for 3G/3GS but not as good on 4. It'll go the other way too. Just because a brand was or wasn't good for a 3G/3GS doesn't mean it isn't or is good for a 4.

    I have a Griffin case for my 4 and it works well. The quality of a case for a 4 shouldn't be based on the experience of 3G/3GS. I also have a Speck Candyshell, I thought it was better on the 3G/3GS then on my 4 right now. It just depends really.

    Sure, I agree. The 4 is much less subsectable to scratching. I was referring only to the 1 griffin clear case only. The incase sliders where great and I had several. But the one I'm talkking about the specific griffin clear one will scratch & scuff 3G/3GS, never had a problem with other cases. This speck candy case adds bulk and makes 4 feel like mass of 3G or 2G but it damn good protection all around.

    I would check InCase and Speck products. Those two companies really know how to get the most protection without harming the functions of the phone. I decided to get a case so I won't have to "baby" the phone everywhere I go. It's better to have one, you never know when you'll drop it or put it on rough surfaces.

    As for a film sheet for the screen, I'd get one for anti-glare. During the day time, I find it annoying to use. That will be my next investment in regards to protecting my phone.

    In my opinion there are some great cases out there for iPhone 4 especially a cassette tape one I have seen floating around amazon and eBay and they offer great protection along with the screen protectors but I always think they look nicer and just sleeker without one. But that's just my opinion .

    I have a Apple Bumper with SwitchEasy antiglare on the front and back. Does not show finger prints horribly and it does not reflect everything when trying to look at it.
