My favorite case is Speck fitted case Fitted iPhone Case | Hard iPhone Case It's a two piece case so it's thinner than most and still offers great protection. Twice I have dropped my phone from a height of several feet and both times the case saved it (I do not recommend trying this though).
Of course a case is a personal preference but when you buy one do yourself a favor and go to amazon.com or store.tipb.com and save yourself some cash.

Case i am currently running (love it) and can be had from ebay for a few $$ cheaper..
Great case, not as protective as an OB, but good for most everyday uses.
SGP iPhone 4 Case Neo Hybrid EX Series - iPhone 4 [AT&T GSM] - Apple iPhone - Cell Phones
Although it says AT&T in the link, it is available for Verizon, as that is what mine is.

I like the two peice OtterBox Commuter case. I do not like belt clips and the Commuter offers a slightly higher level of protection, but is not as bulky as the OtterBox Defender series. Have not tried other cases but as someone above stated, cases tend towards personal preference and I would look at several (out of box if possible) to see if the form factor, size, etc. suits your needs.

I've tried a few cases:
- SGP Linear - sides provided no grip whatsoever
- Otterbox Commuter - great case and so far my favorite
- Speck Fitted - good case, lower profile than the Otterbox, and is my fall back case in the event that something should go wrong with the Otterbox
I've used the Speck fitted case for about two weeks now. I like the look of it and picked one up for my wife, too. Some people report that it's difficult to remove a Speck fitted case and that they need to use a card or something to pry it off. This may be the situation for some, but I've been able to remove the Speck case in about 2 seconds without tools.
Still, the Otterbox Commuter is my favorite case so far.

I'm new to Iphones, but talked to 2 different shops that repair broken phones. They both told me the same thing. Since the Iphone 4 has glass on both sides, they suggested getting a case that has silicone to wrap phone, then a hard plastic on top of that. They said that majority of Iphones (in cases) they have worked on with broken glass, were in hard cases only...no silicone inside. Of course this may be only their opinion, not necessary facts. I doubt they ran in tests... Thoughts?
