    I have thought the same way. Apple designed it to be held and admired in it's uncovered form. But I was told the deductible for my wife's 16gb is $169 and my 32gb is $199
    So I picked up a couple of Otterbox covers on Amazon for a great discount. This is the case I see most at work. So I'll give it a try. I may hate it since I normally use skins on my phones. But there is one great thing about Apple not changing the size of the iPhone...cheap cases. These are regular priced $50 each, well I got both for $41. So time will tell.

    I ended up with a casemate pop but almost bought the otterbox reflex. It seemed a bit slimmer and may work for both at work and off. Otherwise I'll fins something slimmer for my off days. My job is to physical to run it naked.

    I ALWAYS use a screen protector and a hard case as well as a softcase or even a thick sock. I like the looks naked but I don't trust it or myself.

    My husband removed his screen protector and within 2 days the screen and back were destroyed. His keys had scratched the thing so bad I can't really understand how he can see anything.

    Case-Mate Barely There for me -- and one nice thing about Apple not changing the iPhone design this year is that all my accessories... including cases... will hopefully (we will find out next Friday) work/fit perfectly

    Will you carry your new iPhone 4S naked, or swathed in some sort of case? If you choose the latter, which one?

    I'm going to enjoy my 4S as Apple intended - in the buff so to speak. My 3GS has lived in a Case Mate case for the past two years, mostly to protect the back from scratches. Unfortunately this didn't protect it while falling face down on concrete twice and cracking the screen each time. But with that, I bought AppleCare+ for the new phone.

    I know/knew Apple products are beautiful to look at, but didn't fully appreciate how much time they put into the physical form and design until reading so many articles upon Steve Jobs passing this week. That being said, IMO it'd be a shame to not enjoy the beauty of the 4S design by spoiling it, obscured from view.

    If by god I use both repairs via AppleCare before the next phone arrives, then I'll bite the bullet and get an OtterBox. But til that fateful day I'll enjoy my white 4S as it is out of the box.

    What say ye?
    PUT IT IN A CASE!!!!!! I am suppperrr OCD and if my iPhone 4 gets a single tiny little beauty mark on it I go insane. But that's just me personally. You don't really need an Otterbox either Incepio works prefectly for me.

    I'd use a case with mine! The otterbox series seem to always get the job done with past experiences.

    I love the way that the phone looks so I don't want a case that's going to hide it!

    I'm currently using a CaseMate Barely There on my BB Storm2 and love it for how it fits the phone and has protected it the few times I've dropped it..............I just found the Society6 site for iPhone cases and was wondering if anyone has previous experience with the Society 6 cases.

    Do they have these cases in the Apple store? Looks awesome but would like to see it in person.

    Minimal case for me. I looked at Case Mate Barely There (had those on my EVO 4G and EVO 3D), then Incipio (have one of theirs on my Nexus S 4G), but I picked a JustCase Mettlica case from Amazon. I hope it's as good as it looks on the screen.

    I would go naked, with only a screen cover on the front. As long as antenna gate doesn't reappear that is.

    Even though I like my iPhone without any protections, I will use a case, because it helps me protect my phone in perfect condition so I can resell it later if I want to do an early upgrade.

    Did not use a case for my 3GS. And I know that my new 4S is really a looker. BUT...after nearly dropping the new phone twice in just one day, I got myself back to the AT&T store and got an Otter Box Commuter case (with a coupon for 30% off). Also added a clear screen protector. Phone still looks great, and I feel a lot more secure. And the Commuter is not nearly as bulky as some other Otter Boxes I've seen.

    Also, I declined Apple Care+ when it was offered to me yesterday. Just didn't think it was worth it, with all the "not covered" clauses.
