    Aside from the antennagate problem that seems to be bothering some i4 users, I'd personally use a case to protect my i4, seeing as the device is pretty expensive, and I wouldn't want the beautiful design harmed.

    I saw a clear case that will fit my i4 perfectly, without it losing it's beauty. I'll look it up for you.

    It's called the Griffin Clear Case

    I have invisishield on my i4 and I really did not want to use a case

    But I dropped it twice without a case( no scuffs or anything showing)

    And Now I'm paranoid not to use a case
    Waiting for my incase snap on to come in

    I'd definitely recommend getting a case... only problem is... which one? I ordered a free bumper for now. My phone keeps slipping out of my pockets, so I need something that has some type of grip. I'm hoping switcheasy comes out with a new version of the CapsuleNeo, I loved that case for my 3g. It came with an extra layer of protection, which I thought was great. I'm not the type to switch cases, so an extra minute taking it off didn't bother me.

    I think you can get custom colors and text on the vapor

    I looked at it, but the timeline doesn't look promising... I'm a bit impatient, so I'll see what I can do.
    I'd rather be on two wheels.

    Personal pref really but I like the hard barely there cases. Alse element vapor case for the i4 is sweet. A bit spendy though.

    -you iphone will look unique
    -it will be scratshproof
    and so on.

    There are many youtube links larry greenberg have posted up. Go check some of them out.
    Currently, I'm using the SGP Neo Hybrid Matte - champagne gold and I have to say it's one of my favs so far. Here's a link if you are interested.

    No matter how careful you are, there will be a day where you drop your iPhone 4. I'm super careful but I admit I've dropped it already since I got it 3 months ago. Dropped it once on wood floors (luckily I already got my case in the mail).

    Personal pref is obvious in choose a case. I would love to stick a invisible skin on it so the natural slim feel stays in tact but that's out of the question because those things do nothing to protect from falls. I personally like slider cases (very secure). Don't like the otterbox line since they're too bulky and sort of ugly...

    I own 2 Casecrown sliders (polycarbonate and diag line) that prove sturdy if dropped. I have a Speck candyshell but it is a bit bulkier and hard to take off. I use that one the least. Also have a Griffin reveal which has the clear plastic back and bumper type edge. Very secure and protective.

    Casecrown is my fav though, not largely known I suppose but it is cheaper than many cases and the quality is really fantastic for the prices.

    I have a case that is made out of a sponge like material on my i4. It is made by RocketFish. Best case I have ever owned.

    You can put it in a big, ugly, super protective Otterbox or the like. I had a clear thin snap on case initially....then I saw the Vapour 4 cases. That's what I use now ( and NO, it does not affect my signal at all ) it's in keeping with the aesthetics and quality of the iPhone 4 and I just slip it into a leather belt holster from Nutshell Leather Cases when I'm at work.
