    slips in my back pocket perfectly without a case, no desire here to add any bulk to my phone.

    yeah, it happens with a case too, i've found, it's no biggie. i'm sure there's a rubbing compound out there to fix the small stuff like that too. the screen is perfect though, and that's all i care about.

    the light scratches on the back didn't make a difference on my recycling of my original iphone and 3G model through nextworth, and I can't imagine it making any difference trading it to someone in person either, but your mileage may vary of course.

    No way always a case, especially being so close to the 4th gen, have to sell the 3GS off.

    No option for the invisible shield. That's what I use and I really like it. I went with it because I was not able to find a case that I really liked.

    Half the time commando, the other half with a "Barely There" CaseMate. The black
    one that looks "wet." Pretty nice case.

    I like the 'Barely There', albeit sometimes it feels a little slippery...

    Very slippery! I have another one with a smooth back and I never use it. It's
    just way too slippery. The "wet look" one has a much better feel to it and
    hardly feels slippery. Check it out. Great texture.

    so do you not care about light scruffs and only use the case when you go out drinking or stuff?

    I don't care really about scruffs. I don't even use a screen protector either. Don't like the way it looks on the screen. I pretty much use the case when I'm @ the gym. Other than that, always commando.

    The phone is so cool naked but you always need to worry bout scratching it so I end up putting it in one of those ridiculous hard plastic cases.
    I have a whole bunch and IMO they all look crappy compared to bareback.
    I wish they had some little sleeve kinda berry style pouch like I have for my 9700 and I had for my 8900 and 8320 before that. I find that that way, your unit is protected when it's lying around but in full slick effect in your hand while using it.

    I currently use the Seidio Spring-Clip Holster and clear-coat scratch protection skin (screen and back protection). Carrying the device in an open holster, I need some protection, so decided to throw a skin on it. Before that set-up, I carried my iPhone around naked in a leather holster.

    I have an expensive screen shield and an Slim Incipio case.

    That just about covers it.....

    Covered from head to toe. Privacy screen, and hard case. I cannot stand any scratches of any type.

    Otterbox Defender. Hands down. Had 10292902 different other cases and I will not ever keep my 3Gs in anything different. And, Mine is the white rubber with the black plastic. Looks great. I always have it out at my Frat House during parties and I have to keep it protected from "accidental" spills. Of water of course.

    Naked most of the time because I baby it - hardly any scratches at all.

    Cased by several Incase Sliders whenever it does actually have a case.

    I dropped mine on the hardwood floor a couple of nights ago. I'm so glad it was in a case! Mine is by Incase. It's clear and just snaps on. Protects the back and corners but the phone still looks nice.
