    Right now I have the otterbox commuter case on my phone, and I absoltley love it. The only thing I dont love is the small amount of bulk that it adds to my phone. I carry it in my pocket and like the feel of the phone without a case.

    I also have phantom skinz installed on the back, as well as a screen protector and phantom skinz on the send, menu, back and end buttons.

    Ive never dropped the phone in almost a year owning it, i am very careful with it. My question(s) are: what are your thoughts about possibly scratching the camera lens putting it down on a clear surface or from being in my pocket? Thats really all I am worried about.

    How tough is this phone without a case? is it stupid to take a good case off for no real reason?

    OCD I know, but I love my berry

    Same. I use the privacy protectors from VZW. They are great. VERY thick but the are perfectly flush with the rest of the phone so they don't dip down like the bare screen does and they aren't too thick so as to rise above the rest of the phone. Just bought a silver/grey Seidio Incase SURFACE (will arrive in the mail tomorrow!!!) though as I accidentally tossed my tour onto the cement yesterday trying to open the door... Nothing happened, but it was enough to scare me away from going naked. Always used to, but the tour doesn't seem as sturdy as some so I'm a bit more cautious now.

    I use an epik case, very slim, doesn't really add any bulk to the phone and protects it good enough for me along with the privacy protector and it also fits into my OEM case with the epik case still on.

    i use the seidio innocase II with holster. I love it. It really doesnt add much bulk to the phone and doesnt leave alot of the phone vulnerable. The inside of the case is made of velvet so ur not even putting a hard plastic onto the phone. The other great plus to the seidio is that its the only case that has an actual holster for it. I recommend the seidio to anyone and every one

    I only use a case when I go to work since I work in construction. When I'm not at work, I take off th case since I love the look of the Tour with nothing on.

    I also use Phantomskinz, and the camera lense is pretty tough, it will take a lot to scratch that

    Okay thanks for the responses. So Im assuming I shouldnt be worried about scratching the camera lens or anthing else? Honestly Ive never dropped the phone and am fully focused on what im doing when its out in my hands.

    dont worry about the camera lens...it is recessed so it wont be scratched in your pocket or bag.

    ive pocketed my phone for months and no problems at all

    I'm totally nekkid... don't like the skin, the bulk, or the case. Like the thin feel in my hand--- so far I've been good at not dropping it, it's still looking NEW and scratch free.

    Ok you think you have ocd, i have invisible shield total protection, this thing even covers the chrome bezel. Plus i have it in a case mate hybrid. I tell myself that i have both so if i want to go sans case i can with no worries. When in actuality i have the invisible shield on there because when i had my curve the case scratched the **** out of the phone. So i have a case to protect the phone from its case.

    Just received by Seidio Incase Surface in the mail about an hour ago. Loving it! Usually hate cases (as described above) and go naked, but this one is nice.

    I carry mine around in my pocket, naked and have not had any major issues.

    The black plastic on the top of the phone (where the speaker and LED indicator are located) tends to scratch as well as the rectangular camera cover on the back- NOT the actual camera lens. Honestly, it's not a big deal. They are very minor scratches but they bother me because I'm OCD about keeping my phone looking brand new. Other than that, no other problems. I used a screen protector for a while but got sick of it- still don't have a scratch on my screen after 2 months without a screen protector.
