I have no case on my iPhone 4 since the free one from Apple broke. I will get a new one when the 5 comes out.

I have this one and I really like it. It was relatively inexpensive and it gets the job done. I've dropped my phone several times and not had any damage.

I like the Leica touch in the logo. But I wouldn't use it. The iphone is attractive to me because it low profile. That thing makes it not "pocketable."

And I wouldn't go for the Otterbox things. They change the elegant design into a piece of brick.

FWIW, the one I had was made by Griffin and it lasted almost 2 years.

It's called equipment and you can buy those, you know.

I think China's GDP is based solely on iphone case sales.

I thought you iPhone users upgraded every couple of months. Why bother with cases?

That's got a nice Palm Pilot sort of a vibe to it.

Otterbox Defender case here. Yes, it does add some size to the phone, but so far (and knock on wood) my iPhone 4 has survived some pretty rough and tumble areas, without a scratch due to that case.

Fess up, this one of those which is better; panniers, backpack or seat bag questions. Maybe you should consider a trailer?

I like the Otterbox. The new one doesn't increase the footprint of the phone by much, and it's water resistant, so I don't worry about using it for my GPS when I'm riding. There was a better one (Life-source, Life science...something like that) that looked more rugged and water resistant, but 1) it was twice as pricey (~$70), and 2) was a bit bulkier.

We have a winner. This is the highest rated case in the Apple store.
