am i the only one who rolls naked??
so far every case i have tried feels too bulky or takes away from the "experience". cases in the past did not stay on long due to me simply getting bored of them
anything Otterbox has to offer looks hideous.. i guess if you think you may be accidentally dropping it off a building anytime soon then i can understand
for the 18 months i had my 3G it was only dropped 3 times with no major damage
maybe that day will come when i'll regret not using one but until then it will sure look good!

I've got Belkin free case from Apple that's clear, which shows of my aluminum back I got from Hong Kong or wherever it was, but I'm debating on getting a similar back glass that actually has the flash diffuser in it lol

Go Both Ways
I rock the full body armor of a Otterbox Defender when I am outdoors, in the shop, on the boat, and traveling cause I have ruined too many phones in those environments. Then I strip it all off when I get my good jeans on and enjoy the feel of the iPhone with nothing on it. When I do, I am always surprised how slippery it is as well as how elegant.

OP I'm like the total opposite I have never used an iPhone without a case. I currently use the Defender. I get jealous when I see people with their i4 looking all snazzy but I'm too much of a butterfingers for that

I have a case complex with my iPhone. I love the iPhone naked, it's beautiful! But I get paranoid and don't want to scratch it up. I have a good collection of cases (about 6 or 7) and that's because I've only had my iPhone 4 for a few weeks. I recently converted to using an Otterbox Defender - I used to be SO against them for the same reasons: they're ugly, bulky and completely loses the gorgeousness of the iPhone.
But the iPhone 4 version of this case converted my views on the matter. True, it's still somewhat bulky, but I definitely breathe a little easier knowing how protected my iPhone is.
For me, I'm ALWAYS thinking about resale value. When the next iPhone comes out, I'll have a mint condition iPhone 4 with lots of accessories to sale - which will sale a lot better than one with "normal wear and tear" that you'll see listed quite often
