iPhone 4S "Must Have" Gear?
Ok, im juiced now. Pre-ordered my Sprint 64GB iPhone 4S this morning and the 14th can't come fast enough. Now I'm looking for iPhone accessories and can't wrap my head around what to get. After years of owning Palm devices I haven't kept track of all the sweet Apple gear for the iPhone.
What are your the MUST HAVE accessories for an iPhone 4S?
So far I've only decided on the Otterbox Commuter case. Help!

Zagg Screen Protector is a must for any phone that will be in your pocket.
I am not going Otterbox as I am fan of the iPhone form factor, and those things are kinda ugly... That said, a cousin of mine is a roofer and he swears by the OtterBox. He has been known to have his phone fall off the roof and its lived to tell the tale.

Cool. I hope so. I _think_ I used it with the Touch, but I can't remember for sure.
I have a Motorola Rokr bluetooth speaker that I love. That Bose speaker sure looks nice, though! I like to listen to stuff on my phone while going to sleep, but after killing two NICE sets of earbuds I tried just sticking the speaker under my pillow, and that works greak for me!
Then I'll have to get the car stereo to find it- which was a huge PITA the first time. Alpine. AWFUL interface, BTW. The stereo takes control of the iPod and it's impossible to do anything easily (so I have a Nano connected permanently, not the iPhone) But it answers calls seamlessly.

I just ordered an Otterbox Defender 4S case.
Total protection, comes with a detachable clip/kickstand.
I already have a Car Mount/Charger/Transmitter for my iPod Touch 4G which is iPhone 4 compatible too. So I'll just keep using that on the road.
I'm all set! Just need to fast forward to Oct. 14!

BTW - CNET did a break down on the best protective cases for the iPhone 4 a little while ago.
Top 20 tough iPhone 4 cases | Fully Equipped - CNET Reviews
A good read if you want a REAL case.
(Note not all of these are 4S compatible. So double-check with the vendor/manufacturer before ordering any if you choose. These are all iPhone 4 cases - the only issue using them on a 4S would be the slightly wider camera lens on the 4S. But most are fine for both phones.)

I bought a case for my 3GS when I got it. After a few weeks of use, I ditched it and went bareback. I did put a cheap (eBay) screen protector on it. It's been fine for 2+ years.
Now that I'm getting a 4S, I'm a little concerned about the glass back and was thinking screen protectors on the front/back and a black bumper (white iPhone). Seem reasonable?
