hard case that doesn't scratch iphone
i'm looking for a hard case that doesn't scratch the back/side of the iphone when you put it on. I had this case http://ep.yimg.com/ca/I/exchangecell...065_1819361075 but when i took it off the back of my phone was scratched and also the metal sides, not to mention leaving a mark on the screen protector.is there any hard case that has a soft or silicon like inside? i would appreciate any suggestions.

That's the thing about hard cases... no way around it and one of the main reasons I prefer silicone cases. You can cut a piece of micro fiber cloth and lay that on the inside of the case and lay the phone down on that. That works as long as the cloth is thin enough.

Marware makes some sturdy silicone cases as does Switcheasy. Incase slider will scratch the chrome bezel for sure if you take the case off constantly. I would not waste my time with the shield. That's just me though. I have tried them for testing purposes and I am not a fan.
i think i will go with the incase slider (i'm not going to take the the bottom off so it ok)
i had a question. this website is selling 2 incase sliders that are exactly alike but different prices, can tell the difference between the two?

I have the Griffin Graphite slider case with no scratches on my phone and my wife has the Incase Gloss White that you have linked to and also has no scratches on her phone. We finally went an Apple store to find something that we could physically look at and see how they fit.

i just recently took off my innocase, its scratched up my phone to holy hell! i took some pics of it because it damaged it so bad. i only take it off once a week or so for cleaning, and the chrome bezel is scratched on the top and bottom. and now i have a huge gash on the back of the phone. i've put my griffin slider case back on. i dont know what happened.

On the back part, right? I noticed that the Incase Slider did the same thing. But, on my new 32GB 3GS, I've installed the Incase, but I don't take the bottom piece off anymore to place in the charging dock.
I'm now wondering if it was me taking the bottom piece off that cause the upper half to scratch the back of my 16GB 3GS...

the back got a few scratches, most of the damage was to the top and very bottom of the chrome part on the front. it almost looks like i took some sandpaper to it or something very odd. all i can figure is that maybe dirt or debris gets caught in there and rubs? the big gash i've got is a definete mystery though, i'm not sure what happened!

it seems like speck candyshell cases would be perfect for what your looking for, or what i am currently using, which is the incase frame case. the back is plastic, but the sides are silicone and cover the bezel of the phone very nicely

speck candy shell but it does add a good amount of bulk to the phone compared to the incase slider. It also works with BGZ front and back but the install must be perfect. If not the corners will peel away if you like to take the phone out of the case often.
