Picked up a clear Belkin Grip Vue from Best Buy last night just to have some coverage on the thing - I have 2 small children, so I was nervous with no case for a few days. :-) It's decent so far, but I don't love it. Kind of gives a frosted look, which is not my favorite.
Thinking about going with a white Apple Bumper - should look pretty nice on the black phone. Also thinking about ordering a white Speck CandyShell - loved that case on my 3GS.

I finally got the Speck Candyshell for iPhone 4 (Black.) I do love it. After using many cases on the iPhone 3G & 3GS I eventually settled on the Candyshell, so naturally I was looking forward to it on the iPhone 4.
It's a bit on the hefty (bulk) side. That actually one thing I like about it. I find the phone easier to hold with the additional size the case provides. Also I can vouch that your phone will always bounce and not break when you drop it with one of these things on. I dropped the iPhone 3GS many times with a Candyshell from a good height on to pavement.
I did use the Belkin Gripvue for a few days temporarily. It's similar in design to the candyshell but not as thick and it's clear. I really did like it as well. Picked that up at Best Buy. I really appreciated being able to see the phone through the case.
Apple bumper I also had. The dock connector hole is too small for after market cables and it moves around too much on the phone. I like the metal buttons but otherwise pass on the bumper.
I may get the Seidio Innocase II some day when they finally release one and check it out. The thing that turned me off with this one on the iPhone 3G/3GS is that it was scuffing the black plastic back of the phone and chrome rim. On the iPhone 4 I'll have a Best Skins Ever on the back soon and the metal band is matte steel, not shiny soft chrome. So scratching/scuffing isn't really a concern.
Still, with the drops and spills I've taken with phones, the rubber of the Candyshell seems to have earned it's place.

I ordered my iPhone on Wednesday, 2 week lead time, first time with an iPhone. I have owned just about every other apple product from (iPod: Classic, Nano, Touch (1, 2,3), Powerbook, Macbook Pro, Macbook, iMac 20", Macbook Pro (just got one) cinema display 20 & 24 inch (just got one))
I just left BlackBerry for Android, and said I would wait or not get an iPhone until Verizon got it. Well honestly the wait was done this week. I decided since everything else I have is Apple, then I should use Mobile Me, sync my iPhone there and call it a day.
My biggest challenge has always been buying too many cases, accessories and everything else. This time I am going to go minimalist with more super thin protection. I have found what I feel is the best product available. I have been using SGP products for over 2 years on a wide range of BlackBerry's, Andorid phones and now iPhone.
Check out SGPStore.com | iPhone, iPhone 4, iPhone 4G, iPhone 4.0, iPhone 4 Case, iPod Case, Pouches, Protector Film, Camera, Laptop Skin, Metal Skin . I received the Ultra Oleophobic screen protectors and will be ordering either the Black Leather or Carbon. Then I can either get their Ultra Slider band or get Apples band (the only upside to Apples is the integrated metal buttons)
I am curious what you think.

I'm taking a new approach with the 4. I've scoured the interwebs and found all the really cheap iPhone 4 cases coming out of China and Singapore...and ordered them all. I think I have 10-12 cases coming and I've spent less than $20. One of them might actually be usable, and I won't be out too much money. And since I'd be buying cases anyway, it seemed like a fun game. I'll report if any of them turn out to be keepers.

Converted from Blackberry
I'm finally in the iPhone fold after waiting for what seemed like an eternity for my current contract to expire back in May. It's a wonderful thing.
The only downside so far is that I'm used to a belt case for my old Blackberry - what has everyone used as far as a belt/holster type case for their iPhones? I've looked around, and most of the cases that I've seen seem to have the "portholes" for different connectors. I don't need those - but what I will need is a belt case that fits the iPhone 4 while inside of a case that surrounds the edges. (At present I am using a Rocketfish silicone case, mostly because it was the best that my local Best Buy had in stock on the 24th.)
