    Do you guys use a case with your iPhone? If not, why not? Or if you do, why?

    Personally I've always used a case on my phone because I'm always nervous I'm going to drop it and I want it to have protection I'm case I do.

    I'm curious to hear from users who don't use a case and their reasoning behind it. I'd it's because they don't think it matters or if they don't care. I've thought about going without a case before, but just got too worried about damaging the phone.

    Sometimes I do wonder if my case might be interfering with my LTE or cell signal.

    I really have gone away from cases since I got my iPhone 5S. I've been using bumpers or no case. I have a bodyguard on the gold of my phone so it won't get scratched and I took my screen protector off the front of my phone because it was annoying me (the dirt and oil sitting between the film; I might get one of those glass screen protectors when I can afford it. Maybe not LOL).

    I've only dropped any of my phones about 2-3 times and in those times my phone was cased. I don't (barely ever) drop my phone. Even if I did (knocks on wood), I wouldn't be pissed just weirded out by the nick that would be on my phone haha.

    I rotate what cases I use and sometimes I don't use a case at all. I like the option of different cases or no case, it keeps me from getting bored.

    I use an Otterbox. The screen protector is easy to apply and there aren't any bubbles. I got a case for my iPod Touch today, and I ended up throwing away the screen protector since I kept seeing those bubbles under it.

    The screen and the screen protector were clean too. I just don't understand it.

    My first iPhone I stuck it in an LP case before even leaving the store and it was my first phone I ever bought a case for. Left in there for 6 months reason being the iPhone is so well crafted and beautiful no one wants to ding it

    My current i5s I just have a 5 dollar clear gel case on it and I don't worry like I did with my i5

    I'll go naked if I'm dressed up and want to bling my phone out and it wouldn't bother me to much

    Used to use full cases and hated it, when it picked up the 5s, I refused to hide it. Have it in a OtterBox bumper.

    I only use a case when going to the gym. Don't like getting my phone all sweaty from touching it.

    I heard good things about them. Are they considered bumper case? I thought bumper was just around the sides

    You might be right, it's all one piece and slips on and off. Technically I guess not.

    I use the apple black leather case on my 5S. I was looking for the perfect case all my life. This case has served me well since it's release and the best thing is it doesn't add any bulk at all. My phone doesn't have even one single scratch because of the case and it's inside microfibres. Totally worth the $48 I paid for it.

    I'm using a spigen tough armor case right now on my 5S. Seems like a good case. I tend to take it off though to clean the phone about once a week or so. Could this damage the phone? (Constantly removing the case I mean)

    I find if you remove it from the bottom right to left so as not to stress your power and volume buttons you will be fine

    Usually I do it from the top right corner and then top left corner.

    I use a Spigen Neo Hybrid, or nothing at all. I dislike using a case.

    When I had my 5S I just used a tempered glass screen protector, and thats it. The thing is lovely to hold I personally didn't want to ruin it with a case.

    I didn't always use a case on my iPhone 5s until recently, when all the scratches and scuffs on the phone was making me crazy! anyways, i ended up giving my old phone to my little brother and got a space grey iPhone 5s with a speck case on it.

    I use case because it will help me in gaining a good re-sale value.

    I have two cases - Apple genuine leather case, product (RED) & Casemate Brushed Aluminum case.

    Mostly my phone is in leather case however, I use Casemate case when I am traveling as it gives enough protection.
