I'd recommend the Griffin Reveal case.........
this thing has worked great for me so far. It looks like one of Apple's black bumpers, but it also has a clear hard back, so that the back of the phone is still visible but protected.
The was the reason I didn't like the bumpers........because the back of the phone would still get torn to hell. I found this case at Best Buy.......just thought I'd put it out there for anyone interested.

I saw that case but was worried about dirt getting stuck between the clear plastic and the back glass. On my 3G I used a hard case and when I took it off after a couple months the back of the phone was pitted from dirt being trapped between the phone and the case.

i just got the griffin reveal case, added an ifrogz screen privacy protector film... both work well...
on an aside.. the signal issue is nearly nil due to the case... i loose only 1 bar SOMTIMES.... 5 to 4.. a tight grip will intermittently produce a 2 bar drop.

I bought this case. It's gonna need a cover on the back of the phone.
Another problem is the camera. When the flash goes off, it reflects off the plastic and makes the photo cloudy.
Another then that, not to bad of a cases. Will get rid of it as soon as otterbox cases are out.

It's to bad the case does that.
I think with the iPhone 4, a solid back color case would be best.
I'm headed to best buy later today, going to purchase one of those iFrogz, since they are solid. Hopefully it will not interfere with the flash.
I tried a trick my wife suggested (i guess they do know it all)
I got a sharpe, I used blue.
I traced the edge of the opening for both the flash and camera.
Photo IMG_0782 is with the case on.
Photo IMG_0784 is without the case on.
Looks almost exactly the same, slight haze on 782, not to bad though.

I just pre-ordered the Vapor4 Case from ElementCase (have to wait for August delivery) even with the carbon fiber back I will still put some type of film protection on the glass back so that it won't get damaged over time. Its the downside to have great design that you can never fully protect against.
