I was going to get the iSkin Fuze but the one from Griffin looks pretty cool too. I'll have to wait to get more information before making a decision. For those of you who have the 2G, is it cumbersome carrying that on your hip?

Getting the iSkin Fuze whenever it comes out for the 3G. Hopefully it is SOON! I mean, I'm not gonna want to use my phone without a case on it for sure. I'm probably going to go ahead and order an invisibleShield for the front; don't want that pretty glass getting all scratched up!

I pre-ordered the InvisibleShield. I'll be getting another case for hooking on my waistband because I just don't have pockets big enough for the iPhone to comfortably fit. That CEO Sleeve looks like just the ticket.
I also bought a small waterproof case from Otterbox to store my phone in when I'm not using it but carrying it in harsh environments (i.e. when sailing). Those Otterboxes are cool, although I'll need to add some foam to it so it doesn't bang around inside of there.

Invisible Shields for iPhone . . . are they any good?
When i get my 3G i was thinking about ordering an invisible shield . . . but then i started to think what if it makes the touch screen feel weird. i like the feel of the glass and i'm afraid that the film will make is seem kind of sticky
has any one tried one out? how do they feel . . . ?

I ordered just the back of the INVISIBLEshield for 20% off (since it is a preorder) and will be getting something slick for the face of the iPhone. Additionally, I will be getting a silicone cover.
I don't like the idea of an "Orange Peel" feel of the BodyGuardz or INVISIBLEshield on the touch screen
Also, the Orange Peel, from what I have read, makes the screen harder to see at certain angles and does not make images look as crisp.
Secondly, even though I am putting the shield on it does not protect against the impact of drops.. and I drop my phone a bit. However, I have had plenty of silicone skins and hard cases for my iPods in the past and once sand/dirt/debris gets inside they rub around in it and create tons of small scratches. So, in my experience, I need both the shield and the silicone skin.
To bring the cost down I will probably buy a silicone skin that comes with a free face protector. (Kind of like the Griffin FlexGrip).
Price to do this:
$15.16 for the back 1/2 of the INVISIBLEshield (with lifetime replacements)
$10.00 for the Griffin FlexGrip with face shield (or other brand... options will be all over eBay in a few weeks)
Not too bad.

What case are you planning to get for the 3G?
I was thinking about the Griffin Nu Form Hard-Shell Case (Griffin Nu Form Hard-Shell Case for iPhone 3G | iLounge), but I'm not sure.

I'd really like to find a "sportier" looking horizontal case with a belt clip. Leather is a bit staid for my tastes. I see that Body Glove made one for the iPhone, but I don't much care for how all the corners are cut out (I would think you'd want a little protection there). I'm sort of in a hurry for a case, but I might have to wait it out a bit to see what else comes on the market.

I ultimately decided on 2 Marware cases that essentially replace my current cases.
The C.E.O. Premier replaces the case I currently have for my LG enV.
The Sportsuit replaces the case for my current 5G iPod.
I'm a little nervous about buying a case before seeing it in person, but these look to fit my needs the best. If I need to return one or both, I won't be shy about that. We'll see.

After much deliberation I've decided to just wait until Friday to buy my iPhone 3G's case. I'll shop around at the Apple Store and hopefully they'll have something suitable. Even though it seems that all of the online stores are offering 30 day guarantees I'd rather not deal with the hassle of sending something back if I decide I don't like it. I'm going to have to baby my iPhone if they don't have anything in the store that will work.
I just want something that will protect the phone and hold it on my belt securely. The Sena cases are lousy in my opinion. I had one for my Treo and it left the corners completely exposed. Absolutely useless for drop protection (which is the primary reason I want a case). The Griffin Wave looks nice, so does the iSkin Revo, but I need it to be on my belt. Maybe paired with a side pouch kind of a thing, but I don't know if those will handle the phone when its already in another case. Sigh.
