    Does the Incipio feather case have a lip on the front face? I like the slim profile of the case, but it's nice to have a slight lip over the front to protect the glass if it's dropped.

    I ditched my Griffin now for an Apple Bumper+Griffin Screen Protector+Universal Protector (or rear).

    Just gonna wait for cases from the big names to arrive before I waste anymore cash!

    I received my Incipio Feather yesterday. The lip of the case goes around most of the stainless steel band only (there are open areas by the buttons at the top and side as well as at the bottom). It does not touch the screen at all.

    What's the universal protector? Does it have cutouts for the camera?

    After seeing the photos of the white bumper - I so wish there was one of those with a back on it. I really like the metal buttons.

    I'm finally in the iPhone fold after waiting for what seemed like an eternity for my current contract to expire back in May. It's a wonderful thing.

    The only downside so far is that I'm used to a belt case for my old Blackberry - what has everyone used as far as a belt/holster type case for their iPhones? I've looked around, and most of the cases that I've seen seem to have the "portholes" for different connectors. I don't need those - but what I will need is a belt case that fits the iPhone 4 while inside of a case that surrounds the edges. (At present I am using a Rocketfish silicone case, mostly because it was the best that my local Best Buy had in stock on the 24th.)

    Any ideas/suggestions?
    If you're looking for a belt holster, I would look at Siedio.
    seidioonline.com
    I would suggested the "Innocase Surface II combo" (case and clip combo.)
    Innocase II Surface Combo, Black For use with Apple iPhone 4
    They have been making the spring clip holster for many years for many different phone types. They have a one you can use without a case, and one you can use with a their case(es), and they make pretty good products.
    So that's one suggestion.

    Nope. Its just a rectangle with a grid on the backing piece that you cut to size. Its a temporary measure.

    I've since ordered from an eBay seller, the SGP Steinheil Anti-Fingerprint screen protector (rumoured to be the best available at the moment) for 11.99. Also bought a 3 cheap-o rear protector off eBay. It is fitted with camera cutout.

    Gonna use both with the black Apple Bumper.

    How badly does it block the flash?
    Sorry I didn't check that. I just wanted to try it out to see if it fit in the Apple Store. I was on the fence and still am about upgrading my 3GS. Also I'm still on a waiting list at Radio Shack if they ever get anymore in at mine.

    Currently have Zagg shield on front and ifrogs case on my 4. Waiting on Seidio to start shipping Innocases with holster combo. Not decided on the Innocase Surface or Active. Coming over from Blackberry and have used these combos for all my phones. Very well built and a great warranty if you should need it.

    Walked in my AT&T store right after a few cases came in and got a black speck candyshell. Great protection and feels good in your hand. Unfortunately the charge openning is too small for my sedio retractable cables. Otherwise very happy.

    I like that feather case, but boy that thing does absolutely nothing to protect the front screen. I thought it would come up to at least be parallel to the front screen, but it actually is a bit shy of that. I have one on order, but in having one in the past, I know they only provide minimal protection. My Zagg Invisible Shield will have to provide the rest to the front screen. I never lay my phone down on the front screen, so long as the back is protected I'll be good with it. The other thing about this case is that you can generally dock it with most docks. I know it works with my XM Skydock, JBL Dock and iKicker Boombox. So, that will make this case worth it as compared to others that provide a bit better level of front screen protection.

    I also like that it allows the phone to show some of the aluminum sides where the buttons are, but also uses the exact shape of the phone, so you still get that square design look. I found the bumpers tend to round off the iPhone totally losing the square design look and of course provides even less protection to the back of the phone.

    it's a good case, if u look at ur phone you will see that the aluminum part sticks out more then the rest of the phone. The case attaches to this part. But yeah it comes with 2 screen protectors too.

    I picked up an Incipio case when I bought my phone, but I don't like how it attracts lint. It's rather bulky, as well. I'm currently using a Belkin gel case with a Zagg Invisible Shield on the front. I can switch from the Belkin case to the Incipio depending on my activity, ie: I'll use the Incipio for horseback riding, and the Belkin for lower-risk stuff.

    The one thing I don't like about the Belkin is that the volume buttons are very hard to use through the gel. Great for not changing the volume by accident, though.

    Bulky is an odd thing to say lol

    Although I can understand the lint issue. I don't really like cases that don't lip over the screen, as lint tends to gather around the case edges if so. This is why I really liked the SwitchEasy Vulcan.

    Disappointed with the SGP anti fingerprint protector. Better then Griffin Matte but still you can see patterning from the protector when displaying light colours on screen. Also think it blurs the screen a little too.

    I don't think she has an Incipio Feather, they don't attract lint by any means and they certainly aren't bulky. By far one of the thinnest cases on the market. I think she likely have the Incipio Derma, because they are silicone and do tend to catch lent and are much more bulky than the Feather. I personally hate cases that come up over the display as this causes a lot of problems with screen protectors. The Feather fits the bill nicely. This is why there are so many cases, everyone is different.

    I'm not too impressed with my screen protector that I have right now. I also picked up a $15.99 case at best buy. I don't feel that it is well protected at all!!!

    Thank you. No, it's not the Feather model. I couldn't remember what the packaging said, and it only says Incipio on the case itself. It was the only one they had at the store when I bought my phone, and they gave it to me for free.

    I'd post a photo, but I don't have a high enough post count yet. :o
