    Like A BOSS....Just ordered my Otterbox Defender case on Amazon 49$ with Delivery scheduled for 9/21. I went all in...I've seen Verizon's offerings of off brand cases with decent protection for launch day and the cost 24.99-35.99 without tax. I'll feel better knowing its in an otterbox rather than a brand I don't know. Many people have those cases on at work, haven't heard a bad review. After buying 64GB at 423$ and AppleCare+ 99$ = 522$. Am I really gonna short change the Protection to save 10-12$ buying a cheap case it at Store with Tax. Im not trying to break the bank but I could always sell it if I see a thinner otter case later on.

    I definitely am just gonna go naked with my iPhone 5.

    It would be a shame to cover up its beauty!

    The 4S was my first iPhone and I wanted maximum protection. I've had the Otterbox Defender on it. But the material is shoddy: the flaps tear off eventually and the home button cover starts to loosen. I'm on my second one and it's getting pretty bad. Great protection, though!

    The Lifeproof was one I tried because it was thinner than the Otterbox. But it was unusable due to the space between the case screen and the iPhone screen. Dealbreaker and I didn't even make it out Best Buy's parking lot before I took it back and got the Defender.

    Anyway, I'm seriously considering going naked with the iPhone 5 due to how thin it is. I've had my 4S in the case for so long, I can't even remember how it feels naked. I guess it depends on how I feel when I get the actual 5 in my hands. But I am worried about damage as I've dropped the 4S many times.

    On the other hand: if you don't have a case, are you more careful and less likely to drop it?! Hmmmm......

    Will go naked until a BookBook arrives. Maybe I'll order one of those cheap black bumpers from Amazon since I got prime to not get those black sides scraped up.

    Whoa! I had never heard of "Bookbook"! I have been wanting to get rid of my wallet, bigtime! All I really need is my driver's license, credit card, and some cash. It's a real pain to have to remember my wallet all the time, especially in MN when the weather changes a lot and I sometimes leave it in a jacket etc.

    I'll have to look into the Bookbook. For y'all that have one, what are the main drawbacks? Do you lose functionality of the iPhone in any way, e.g., does it slow you down?

    Thanks!

    i had no issue with the space. I followed the instructions and got the air out, made it quite tight and by far the best case I have ever owned

    I'd be interested to know when you bought it. The one I tried was around December of 2011. Does anyone know if they put out updated versions after that point that allowed you to get the air out or have they always been able to do that?

    Perhaps I spaced it out and didn't see those instructions, but I'm usually a bit anal about troubleshooting something like that--especially in this case (pun intended) because I couldn't fathom anyone would put out a product that defective.

    Thanks!

    I just put my name on their list as well. Even though my OB Commuter case will arrive tomorrow, I will use the Speck case more due to style as well as the nice look.

    Okay, I have narrowed it down to the final two. Right now I have a Casemate Pop, I like it, but need to mix it up.

    It is between the Incipio Feather and the Incipio Dual Pro. I like the feather because it is minimal and does not add bulk. I like the Dula Pro because it offers more protection. In my 1 1/2 years of iPhone usage, I have dropped it waist high a handful of times. No damage.

    Regardless, anyone with an opinion?
    Does anyone like either of the two I am looking at? Experience with them?

    Any recommendations for a thin/lightweight metallic looking case that resembles the finish similar to my MacBook?

    I just picked up an Incipio DualPro at the local Verizon store. They had Otterbox Defenders there, too, which look good but I decided to go with something more simple for now and get the Defender or something else, later, pending reviews and what else might appear in the next few weeks.

    Is there a case besides Seidio Surface that works with a holster? You have to buy the holster from Seidio as well. But I need the holster. I don't want to stuff the phone in my pocket.

    People have praised Incipio Feather and Speck here. How are those better than the Seidio Surface?

    Overall this is a well built product. It's not bulky like the otterbox, nor does it stick in your pocket as well. It's clean cut design is one of the best designs for a minimalistic approach with good protection.

    Speck cases for the iPhone 5 are in for anyone who uses them. I ordered 2 of their cases this morning right after Speck emailed me that they were in.

    Corporate discount for me. I got the screen protectors from Verizon as well as that incipio dual pro case. I like the case and I can live with that screen protector for now. I really liked that 3M natural view one I had on the 4s. I'll wait for it to come out on 5. Also, if incipio makes a NGP case for 5, I will be getting that too.
