iP4 cases I've used: ifrogz one with vents on the side from Best Buy. It's and ok case, nothing special. If you take it off, you get dirty ovals from the vented look. It also gets greasy looking from fingers. I have a grove bamboo case on order. I can't wait!
iP4 screen protectors I've used: 1) ifrogz anti-glare. Sucked. Makes the screen not as crisp, and doesn't fully seal to the face of the phone. There were air bubbles above the awful front camera/ speaker cut-out and next to the awful cut out for the home button. 2) SGP Ultra Crystal. Great! Super easy to install, cut outs are perfect, no air bubbles, and makes the screen appear ultra crisp and clear. Fingerprints show up pretty easily on it, but no worse than the glass screen with no protector.

From what I understand though, they won't work with a screen protector (at least not without trimming to fit).

But what puzzles me more is the anti-fingerprint one has the cutout for the camera. So they obviously have the die to cut out the shape.

I really doesn't make any sense. I do of course understand they would have to do this for the anti-glare one because of the defusion that it does, so it would totally kill a camera. Perhaps they feel their crystal clear protector doesn't impact the camera, but also protects the lens. I don't like it, but maybe those that have it can comment about how it impacts the camera.

Well another weekend, another iPhone 4G case...
I really must kick this habit. This time its the:
- Pro/Tec Glacier (Black) - Phones4U - £9.95.
Its a protective silicon case very much in the same vein as the SwitchEasy Vulcan for 3GS, but of a slightly, not much though, lesser quality. Its actually not a bad case at all. It protects all sides, corners and rear and slightly lips over the edge of the front. Its slightly translucent so you can see the Apple logo and bottom FCC information etc. Its patterned, making a feature out of the Apple logo. Ample protection (alongside a screen protector of course), and a good looking case to boot. Doesn't feel rubbery or sticky. My only minor issue with it is it is not as tight fitting as I would like in a couple of places, primarily the top. It is branded at the bottom on the rear "Pro/Tec" in the same colour as the case so barely noticeable.
You can see it here: PRO TEC Glacier Case for iPhone 4 - Black
The Phones4U price is very good considering Mobile Fun sell it for just shy of £15. Phones4U highstreet are selling it for only £9.95. I've mailed Mobile Fun via there "Seen it Cheaper?" link to let them know, expect the price to drop.
If you like this style of case, and you liked the SwitchEasy Vulcan for 3GS, then you will love this case for a good price, less then a tenner. A good case until the big boys come out to play (taking their sweet f'ing time...).
More images from the Mobile Fun link above.

Just my input but I would like a Clear slim fitting bumper (non apple, preferably TPU material) and some sort of screen film for both sides of iphone (maybe invisiblesheild or bestskinsever). But I haven't found a good clear bumper. I really want to see good pictures of the Agent18 one they got for pre order.

I'm torn between these 2...... any suggestions? I'm leaning towards the ivyskin as it is thinner.
1. Ivyskin Reception Case (crystal clear)
2. SwitchEasy Nude Case (ultraclear)
(I couldnt include links as this is my first post )
Also, I will be going with the PowerSupport anti-glare film once it comes out... It worked perfect for 2.5 years on my iPhone2g (yes, i skipped over the iphone3g and iphone3gs!)

I like the Feather because it keeps the nice square design of the iPhone 4, but as you said doesn't add any bulk. In fact I can still use my Apple Universal Docks, my XM Skydock in the car, JBL Speaker Dock at the office and iKicker Boombox Dock at home. So, I am really happy with the Feather case.
TiPb Accessory Store sells the Incipio Feather case, so check it out.

Quiet a few of us got the black Incipio Feather case now I see - really please with mine after having it over a week now - one of the top corners on the back has gone a bit shiny, not sure if it was like that on arrival or whether it's caused by that corner rubbing in my pocket, hardly noticeable, so far so good and like you say it keeps the shape of the iPhone4 nicely.
