<p>I use an <a href="http://www.otterbox.com/iphone-3g-3gs-defender-case" target="_blank">Otterbox Defender</a> because I'm completely paranoid about dropping the thing and cracking the screen. It has its pros and cons.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Pros:</p>
<p> </p>
<p>You ain't breaking your iPhone with this thing hugging it.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Cons:</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The business end of my car adapter won't fit inside the shell opening so I have to remove the case to charge the phone on the road, which isn't required very often.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The volume of the ringer is diminished quite a bit so I always have it on vibrate as well.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The plastic screen cover makes weird patterns on the screen where they make contact. You get used to it.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Other than that, no complaints. It has a solid rugged, utilitarian look. I blew out my belt holster on the arm of an office chair and the company replaced it at no charge. (They had offered to replace everyone's holster because, I assume, of some defect.)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Let me know if I can answer any more questions about it.</p>

<p>this is the one I have...<a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=kickrunners-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FiFrogz-Luxe-Case-iPhone-Black%2Fdp%2FB001EZMGE8%2Fref%3Dsr_1_4%3Fie%3DUTF8%26s%3Dwireless%26qid%3D1279312344%26sr%3D8-4" rel="norewrite" target="_blank">http://www.amazon.com/iFrogz-Luxe-Case-iPhone-Black/dp/B001EZMGE8/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&s=wireless&qid=1279312344&sr=8-4</a></p>
<p> </p>
<p>I haven't dropped it yet (knock on wood!) but I'm not sure how much protection this case would actually provide, but it seems sturdy enough.</p>

<p>I have the ifrogz, and I have dropped mine a billion times.  It has saved mine completely.  </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I have to say, I love how there is one problem EVER with the iphone and people are all thrilled to trash on apple.  ::inserteyerollingsmileyhere::</p>

Never used a case on the 3G, don't use one on the 4. No problems at all yet. I dropped and tossed around the 3G a lot. I find I'm a little more careful with the 4, but that'll wear off.<br><br>
Funny how folks who go on and on about problems with iPhones tend to, like, not have one. There's a lot I don't like about Apple, but they've put out a pretty solid product line with the iPhone.

<p>I've had two iphones, the original, and the 3Gs (or whatever the one before the 4 is).  They both survived multiple drops on concrete, lots of water, and general tossing around.  Seriously, I'm so impressed with how durable they are.  I have a shuffle as well (the second model) that has held up extremely well, too.  So when I was in the market for a laptop, I took a big ol' gulp of the Apple koolaid and got a mac.  I love it.  </p>
<p> </p>
<p>But back to the cases, the ifrogz is really good.  I've dropped mine so many times that the case is finally cracked.  But my phone is A-ok.  I'll probably get the new iPhone this winter when I'm due for an upgrade.  But I love the new OS on it.</p>
