    Ok, so recently being in NYC for a family emergency, I've noticed that A LOT of people have naked iPhones. Like no screen protector, no case, NOTHING.

    I don't know about y'all but I'm very clumsy, (I've already dropped my iPhone like 6 times, with the case on - no damage thank the stars!), but do any of you let your iPhone run around naked? How many close calls have you had?

    The only time my iPhone is without a case is when I'm in the process of switching cases, which is usually about a minute.

    I don't have any case or screen cover for my iPhone 4S and it still looks as new as it did when I bought it back in October.

    it's funny, it seems like the people who use a case end up dropping their phones. almost like they know they are a clumsy to start off/
    catalypse and phonejunky like this.

    I'm too scared to leave it naked. I'm far too clumsy. Right now I'm using the iskin aura, which is about as close to naked as I'll let it get.

    I have a screen protector and several cases which I switch around depending on mood.
    Learned my lesson with my 3GS, which had one huge scratch on the screen from using it with no screen protector.

    I rarely drop my iPhone. But it only took one drop for it to chip. I occasionally put a case on it but sometimes I don't even bother.

    I've got a screen protector and all round case, I want to get an official bumper but if I did I'd have to get a screen protector for the back cos I don't want to scratch it more than it already is (it's pre-owned so not scratch free unfortunately).

    A lot of the physicians I see at work let their iPhones parade around in their nudage but I'm not nearly as daring. I'm glad they make half a million dollars a year or more and can fork over $800 for a new phone, but I can't. Not worth the risk.

    Perhaps the apple care + policy that returned a little over a year ago (best I recall) allows many to feel safe doing this. I have apple care + and use a bumper currently

    What this person said! Naked iphones are a recipe for disaster and a huge expense!

    I could never put a case on this beauty. Part of having this phone is to see the amazing design. I've never had a case on any of my phones, never will.

    I have seen many people rock the iPhone without a case on it. Personally, I can't do it. I need to have something on it at all times. I know some people don't care because they have insurance, but it's not just about the phone being repaired, lost, or stolen. I want it to be in good cosmetic condition. I usually get a new phone every year, and I would like to get top dollar for my device. So if I put a case on it to keep it from being scratched up, I will get more money for it which will go toward my new iPhone.

    I rarely use a case anymore. I only use one when I'm at work, and sometimes when I'm on campus.
    Other than that, I let it run free; the design is too good to cover up, and it really feels quite nice in my hand.

    Does it get scratches?

    Love the Mophie. I have one on my phone now. Really no need to take it off. That case gives great functionality, it looks good, recharges my phone one and a half times, protects it from drops, and feels good in the hand. Can't beat it.

    I have a few on the back, but the front is untouched. It's odd, but it seems like the front is more scratch resistant than the back.

    I have apple + and carrier insurance. I still keep my phone in a case (otterbox and mophie juice pack plus). Just can't trust myself not to drop it while it's exposed. Plus I have a kid and a frisky puppy. No way!

    When I first got my iPhone I wouldn't dare go without a case. Then about 3 weeks ago, I experienced how nice it was to use the phone without anything and on occasion I'd put a bumper on. 2 weeks ago(?) I saw a BookBook, tried it on in the store & fell in love with the whole idea and functionality of it. My phone has been in it since with just a rare occasion when I'm home it's without.

    So as of now, I do a combination of using the BookBook when i go out and letting my phone be naked at home
