I-Phone 4S - whats your must have accessories?
Hi all fellow TIPB ians,
I ordered my new I-Phone 4s today. I am still in confusion of what accessories I should buy as my phone comes here.
Whats your favorites and must have accessories?
Cases? Skins? pouches? Desktop cradle? Headphone?
Thanks for your help as I am learning about the this awesome phone from the awesome site

I am about to pick up two cases off of Amazon, that being one of them, to try out/compare... so we'll see how it is in a week! The other one I was going to try was this, they should be quite different from each other so I am interested in the pros and cons of each one:

I have been using webOS for the past 2 years, and have gotten so used to the wireless touchstone charging with the Palm Pre phones, that when I upgrade to the iPhone 4s, the first accessory I will have to get is the PowerMat Charging kit.
I haven't had to plug in my phone to charge it for the past 2 years, and don't want to start now. Since the PowerMat accessory also doubles as a case for the iPhone, I'll just use that as my case also.
Other than that, the only other accessory I'm going to get right away is a good screen protector. Then when I have the extra money to spare, I'll probably get a pair of Beats headphones.

One of the most needed, but often ignored, accessories for any iPhone is an extra AC plug and dock cable (or two)! Being able to charge your iPhone in the kitchen, then in the bedroom, maybe another location all without having to move a cable around is great. Maybe not as fun as a case or speakers, but a great accessory to have.
I am looking into the Belkin AC/USB plug. Looks like a nice little device and negates the need for an iPhone AC charger.

i have the bumper, i didnt like it, dont use it. i have a clear backed case with rubber edges, somewhat like the bumper, dont like that one either. i dont like cases, i like the phone naked so much better. i understand people want to keep the phones looking nice and protected, but honestly, whats the point in having a good looking phone if your just going to hide it behind a case the whole time? anyways, headphones, im probably the only one, but i love the apple headphones that come with the phone. movies sound great through them, music not bad, and the remote is incredibly useful. other than that, i have a clip that holds the phone naked, i got off ebay for like $8 shipped i think it was, and i use the Apple iPhone dock.

- I have a New Incipio Step in White/Gray, looks great on white iPhone 4/4S
- I also have the Coach Julia Nylon Tech Case in Black, for day trips when I don't want to carry a purse.
- I also have the Armpocket Aero 10 as my Workout Case, which is great because you don't have to remove your case to use the Armpocket!
- Screen protectors
- Car charger
- Extra sync cable and plug for travel
- Extra headphones
