just a quick warning, I talked to a verizon rep a few days ago and he specifically warned me about ordering accessories when pre ordering. apparently if you go to pre order the phone and select an accessory that is out of stock they will wait until it becomes available and ship both together at a later date.
of course, he might not have known what he was talking about

You might want to watch some videos of iPhone screens shattering before completely going against a screen protector. I scratched the screen on both my original and 3G iPhone from drops at about hip hieght. A screen protector went on my iPhone 4 right from the box. My sister in law just got a new iPhone 4 yesterday to replace her 3GS with probably the worst shatter I've seen. Pieces of glass had actually come off exposing the circuit board underneath (she is also calling Apple tomorrow about the free bumper).

I ordered the splash Cruiser on Amazon. Main reason is that I love iFrogz cases (have had one on every iPod I have owned since 2005) and they don yet know which of their current cases will fit right, so wanted something right away. At $16, it will be good enough to use temporarily. Also have always used screen protectors. Ordered those, too.

I think I am going to go with a bodyGuardz kit on the front and back. As for a case I would like to get the CandyShell Card case by Speck for everyday and an Otterbox Defender for more protection. Still no word on when either of those will be ready for the VZW iPhone.

@Bigboi816: I emailed otterbox, and they, like iFrogz, are taking the "We will be evaluating the Verizon iPhone as soon as we get our hands on one and will update and that need it as soon as possible after that." Kind of stinks, which is why I went with one with the single opening for the mute and volume controls.

A) Due to the repositioned volume switch on the side there there is currently no compatible full body(maximum coverage) zagg compatible with the Verizon iPhone 4
B) I put a zagg full body(maximum coverage) on my girlfriend's AT&T iPhone 4 and when I went to put on her hard plastic snap on case it would not fit because the side pieces of the invisible shield are thicker than normal to help fight the antenna problem!
My suggestion is get back and front protection(aka full body easy install) and either use a bumper or another case... I am going red/black otterbox commuter. :-)
