    Hi.

    THis is the first time I join the forum. I want to have your ideas of whether using a case for iphone 4/4s or not. As you know, iphone is so fragile, especially to careless people like me so a case is somehow necessary. However, the design of iphone 4/4s is amazing and sexy and I don't want to hide its beauty within any cover. Currently I use the isikey case for some days and have it "naked" sometimes.

    Life proof always. Unless I feel totally safe and go naked. But not likely

    i always use a case on my phone regardless of how careful i am with it. I don't want to chance an accidental drop without it being protected

    +1. I can't take the chance either. Mine is always in a case.

    I use a case about 90% of the time because the case helps me type more comfortably on my iPhone

    I always have a case. I prefer the OtterBox Defender for the iPhone 4s.

    I voted that I use a case to protect my phone...but that's really not correct. I use a CaseMate Barely There matte black case just to give the phone some added "gription" so I won't drop it. The case would probably only hold the broken pieces together if I dropped it...not much protection there!

    I've found the high-level protection cases like the Otterbox and others like it are just too bulky, and they totally destroy the asthetics of the phone.

    I use a case but not always. Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't. I wish I had from the beginning because the back of my iPhone has numerous scratches now. My screen is still beautiful, but the back has taken a beating from being naked.

    If you're looking to sell it after you upgrade, keeping it safe in a case is the best thing you can do for higher resell value.

    Same here, Blink, and you will be hard pressed to find a scratch, ding, knick, scrape, etcetera on my iPhone and if it weren't for my kids, I could say the same for my iPad.

    I do. I use a Magpul case. Good protection and survived several waste high drops onto to concrete. But it did not survive being slung off a moving car. Would a otter box or life proof kept it alive? Probably. Am I wiling to do with the bulkiness? Nope. That's why I bought Applecare+. $50 and two days later I had another phone.

    I have the Seido Rugged on mine. I ALWAYS use a case. The i4 and 4S cost way too much to drop and shatter the screen or back IMO. Another reason is the resale value. A mint, or near mint iOS device will bring considerably more than one with dings and scratches. I plan on selling this 4S the day I receive the i5.

    I haven't been on here for a while, but since I've been gone I started using the LifeProof case and I LOVE it! I don't even notice that its on anymore. Waterfalls, raindrops, baby drool, and dust are no longer a concern!

    Whether you want a case or not is your decision though. Some people go nude and have no issue. I've never dropped mine but I prefer my cases!
