So if you have a screen protector it may not be the best thing. However I checked the case out on my phone and noticed that none of the case actually touches the glass screen. It just hooks over the metal (not sure if it's just plastic) part. So I guess it just depends on how tight a fit your screen protector is.

I have been drooling over the cases offered by "Vaja" ever since the first gen iPhone. But they are very expensive. So I went with the agent 18 hardshell, it scratched the bezel. Then I tried another case made out of neoprene, the sport something or other...and my phone kept getting grime build up under the cover.
Now I have decided you get what you pay for and went with the Vaja limited edition black and red! Total cost including shipping $105.00. So far I absolutly love this case! Nice tight fit, almost full coverage for protection, argentinian leather(smells fantastic) and it looks beautiful! It feels real good in my hand, no worries about slipping out of my hand. There are reviews of this case on U-Tube, check it out!

I used a Black Air Jacket with the rubberized paint on my now sold 3G. For the most part, I loved how slim it was. But even after just a few weeks of use, the bezzel was definitely getting micro scratches due to no protection from the case. It wasn't bad but definitely noticeable. I now use an Inno case and while it protects the 3GS better, I imagine I'll probably go back to the Air Jacket after the newness wears off. The thinness just can not be compared to. But if you are looking for full protection, I'd fo with the Inno, I believe it's the thinnest full coverage case out there.
One more thing- if you do use the Inno, cut a piece of extra screen protector and place it over the Apple logo since there is a circle cut out in the case. When you talk on the handset the index finger tends to rest there and you'll find that piece of shinny plastic seems to scratch real easily.

Yeah the air jacket looks like the incipio feather, but the feather covers more of the outside of the iphone.
I'm not thrilled with the innocase and the pricetag is too high but thanks anyway,,,,,
I'm thinking stick with feather, rebel serpent and maybe a new candyshell case
And I doubt I'll be putting the screen protector back on since it's amazing how fingerprints don't show up on the new 3GS screen....5 minutes on a 3G screen it was all smudged up, 2 days on 3GS and barely any smudges.....awesome!

I bought an Inspiretech slider case and it is amazing. It is just like the photo posted by Ripnhl2005 without me having to cut up and insert anything. It comes with felt already on the inside of it. Great case and so far no scratches at all. Oh, and I got it off Amazon for $10...great deal!
