Got a $5 TPU case off EBay. Use the case and a front protector. As soon as I get in the house, I take the case off. I wash it every few days as well.
Here's the one I use. It's a compromise between an ugly otterbox and a hard plastic case. I love it.
I have an extra one that I am willing to trade for a new or almost new bumper if anyone wants.
I rolled naked outside once and my car keys scratched the back of the iPhone 4. The glass is very prone to scratches, regardless of what Apple says.

I dont like cases since I found out about Gelaskins.com The art is amazing and you still keep the nice look of the iphone and fits snug and even can buy screen protectors as well from them. They even send you a wallpaper you your iphone and it looks like one big skin.

My 3G and 3GS both had cases for about a week when brand new before I couldn't stand them anymore and they were naked the majority of their lives. My 4 has a griffin hard bumper now that I actually enjoy... It may just stay on haha

lol. title really made me laugh. i feel the same way. no case for me either. buddy gave me some commander case or some name like that. case is just crazy, could be used in military service! hehee
i just drop it into my holster i used for my bb. i really should get an apple one because the comments i get are pretty funny when people realize its an iPhone in a BB case.

Ever since I got a smartphone I've never rolled naked. Before my iPhone I had a BlackBerry Curve 8900, and that had an iSkin gel case. I currently have a speck case on my iPhone but I'm not too fond of it...it seems to add to much weight and bulk to the phone. I might go back to a simple silicone cover.

I am particularly fond of the Defender Otterbox cases. I think they bridge the gap between slimline and protection very well.
Of course, that's one of the things I"m so enamored with the IPHONE over.
No other device is as well supported. There are tons of cases for the IPHONE and most of them look damn good to boot!
My Samsung Epic has like 3 cases and only one of those is serviceable, but even it doesn't look that great.

While I like how a "naked" phone feels in my hand, I could just never go out and feel comfortable using a device without a case, never with a BlackBerry, even more so with an iPhone, much less an i4. I've never really minded the bulk of cases seeing what they offer in exchange for that little bit of extra material.

Didnt get my Iphone yet but I always run naked on my BB. I always keep my phone in my front pocket and anything but naked feels weird and seems bulky. My wife is never Naked () but always tosses her phone in a handbag, so she needs the protection.
So is there any coralation to how you roll and where you carry your phone?

I love my baby too much, if anything happened to him I'd be lost :o
When I'm out ANYWHERE I have my Otterbox on, I hate the bulkiness but I love the protection. I just got my default case for 1 cent! I wear that at home for some protection but not overkill :3
