Wrap or case?
I just got the ViP at figure you ATT peeps could give me some advice since you've had 8 months of insight. I think I can get by with a wrap because I rarely drop my phone. An I also like the idea of not havin to remove my case to use my car mount and docks. On the other hand, I love the looks of the aluminum bumpers but worry about debris getting between the parts and scratching causing me to be stuck in a case forever.
Which ones to avoid? Will the wraps come off/peel easy if I use a front pocket often? What others issues am I not considering?
BTW the skin I was looking at is a slickwrap carbon.

Aluminum bumpers are cool but they bulk up the device more than a case would, as for wraps... decalgirl.com has some really cool ones with matching backgrounds.. and I had one for a while and got bored with it... I much rather prefer a case I can just take off whenever I like and roll naked if I wanted to or switch it up with another case....
I didn't have any real issues in and out of my pocket, was cool just didn't offer enough protection if I dropped it.. but to each their own

I have been using iColorWraps for a few months now, even though I love cases. I tried a few Slickwraps products, and found that the metal really degraded my signal, and I had to remove them within (literally) hours of applying them. (Their customer service offered no support either - they promised to replace the side part and never did.)
The important part is that you use a good screen protector on front and back if you use a wrap.

I've found the Invisible Shield to be very thick, difficult to install, and doesn't last particularly well.
For your first set, I would go with BestSkinsEver, which are really inexpensive, and seem to be as good as most of the more expensive shields.
