    When the iPhone 4 came out there was many dropped and broken with in the first month.

    Not much stats since then.

    I use OtterBox Defender, which is a little pricy, but not near as much as replacing the iphone of if lucky repairing it.

    I just have a skin from slickwraps. But I just ordered/received a case from casecrown for a family member and it is really nice! What I like about casecrown is the fact that it has felt inside unlike the incase sliders which have guardrails. If you are constantly taking off the case then the incase will scratch the back.

    I'm using a zagg full body and either a rebel switheasy serpent or an animal sillicone "claw" case. I have dropped my phone loads of times and it hasn't broken yet.

    i personally have to use a case, as i work in a generator factory, if i didnt i would have metal shavings, paint, and chemical all in my phone, but if i didnt work in a factory i would just use a bumper as the edges of the ip4 annoy me.

    I bought my dad an Otterbox"Defender" , kinda pricey ($50) and boxy but they have nice collours, they protect your phone great. Water resistant, screen protector, and who knows how many layers of protection. His phone still looks new out of the box...

    I personally would recommend that you get some sort of case to protect the phone. Accidents do happen and you'll probably find many, including myself, that are thankful they protected their phone at some point.

    As for referring you to the best case. There are so many brands out there it really comes down to your preference. Not sure what type of casing you like but I currently own a Hornettek Vader Case. If you are not into bulky cases you may want to check out their cases.

    Couldn't agree more. In fact, even though my contract is up soon, I may discontinue my "early adopting" ways.

    Absolutely YES! I have an iPhone and I didn't use a case until recently and I have all kinds of scratches and dings on my iPhone. However the case I have now is great and I really love it. It's an Otter box, best case I have ever found. I personally would recommend that you get some sort of case to protect the phone. Accidents do happen and you'll probably find many, including myself, they protected their phone at some point. Use a crystal clear screen protector for front and back like zagg shield.

    well that depends on your perception about care and style. some people say it looks more stylish while others buy iphone case for protection. tell us for what purpose your thinking of encasing your iphone?

    I recommend putting clothes on your phone. It'll protect is from damage and stuff (if the case is good). Go to Apple and purchase a skin there. They have a shiz load of nice cases.

    It depends on what you do with your phone and how you take care of it. We recently bought a used phone to replace a broken one and it was pretty significantly scratched. Not to the point where one would notice just using it, but if you shine light on it and the right angle there are tons of micro scratches. I have had MY iPhone 4 since launch, so what is that, 13 or 14 months? I have a bumper on it, but that's it. Not a scratch on the thing. Moral of the story. If you beat your phone up, get a case. If you don't you will be fine.

    EDIT: If you like the naked look, get a zagg, or best skins ever, or anything in that category. Adds virtually zero bulk, and will keep the glass from scratching (if you are the type that is rough on your phone).

    I like the woodwork but WTF is up with the Smurphs on the front there? Seems completely unrelated.

    i think for something as expensive as the iphone 4, a case would be a good idea

    I personally go without a case. If you want a light case I recommend Incipio. For heavier cases check out Belkin (or Otterbox).

    this is like asking us all if you should use protection in the sack, we can sit here and tell you it's the smarter thing to do but then in the
    end, it'll be your decision to actually use it or not
