    Default Best case for 2G?
    So I was looking at the Capsule Rebel by SwitchEasy (Welcome to SwitchEasy) and it's totally sexy but I just realized it's for a 3G iPhone. Can anyone point me in the direction of a case for the 2G?

    Yeah go to this link Innocase II Surface, Black

    I actually used this case with the holster for my 2G...U can purchase the combo. I absolutely loved it. They redesigned the case for the 3G with the Apple logo visible from the back and I don't like it as much.

    Or you could check out the Incase Slider series of cases. I have the incase slider white for my 2G and I absolutely LOVE it. Wouldn't trade it for the world and many agree it's a brilliant case. Anyways, the site is Incase: A better experience through good design.. Enjoy!

    There are quite a few great cases for the 3g but unfortunately the 2g got left behind. I would say an incase slider with a screen protector is your best bet.

    most of those magic change cases are from hongkong and if your in america, it takes like 3 weeks to get the darn thing. i waited 3+ weeks just for a screen protector. just so you know.

    i use the white agent18 case, have since january07 and never bought another case since.

    Do you recommend getting a screen protector as well as a case? And if so, any recommendations?

    YES! get a screen protector! I like the anti-glare, but yes, it does take away from some of the sharpness of the screen... but no more finger prints, its worth it to me.

    is there any way to put a 3g case like the capsule rebel on the 2g? even tough its a 3g case.

    ^^ I'm sure you could stuff it in there. but its not recommended. Cases are cheap compared to replacing the iPhone. I would just pick up a new one. Then sell the old one here after you get 31 posts

    I was just wondering if it would potentially fit right, it wouldn't be right at all?

    I'm thinking the Slider now (Incase Slider Case for iPhone (White) - Apple Store (U.S.)) but I'm not sure what kind of screen protector to get. Recommendations? I don't want to sacrifice any visual quality or sensitivity.

    Edit: I just bought the case at apsprostore.com for 31.94 shipped (2-3 day USPS shipping). Now all I need is a screen protector.

    Have you had success finding a screen protector that fits with the incase slider? (without modification or trimming?)

    I have the incase for my 1st generation iPhone and for my 3G and I use a screen protector for both..... I use the ones on Apples site..... the matte finish ones... you just have to know how to put the case on with the screen protector in place... it is really easy to do..
