    I just can't do a case. Why buy such an ecstatically beautiful piece of equipment and then cover it up? To me it's no different than sticking a gorgeous woman in the Michelin Man Suit

    I'm a nudist and have no problem going naked but Droid is clothed, I don't like the fingerprint smudges it leaves when I use it, even with the InvisibleShield on. :)

    Wait until you get a big nasty scratch on that beauty? lol Just saying, the case at least protects what you got and u can admire the beauty when you know she's safe. lol I got bit of a OCD and I cant stand getting scratches on anything... Thast's just me. I'm sure I'm not alone on this.

    I use the invisibleshield (front only), a friend of mine works at Best Buy and he was trained to put those on (he says they charge $7) and he put it on perfect.


    But I don't use any case though

    Yea I get what you are saying but you know what? There really hasn't a case put out yet that seems to not do something to the phone? Cases scratching the keyboard or ripping a button off or not staying on properly.

    The phone is oddly shaped and probably difficult to create a perfect form fitting case for it. I'm probably going to go with some kind of pouch or something eventually, unless something comes out that fits the phone properly without any tabs that can accidentally scratch the phone or pull a button off or something.

    I had a bestbuy guy put an IS on my screen for me and after a week the corners were peeling up and it got gross underneath. Waste of 25 bucks in my opinion.

    if they were peeling aftera week then something went wrong, I still have my IS on my PSP after 3 years and it's still going strong. Did you make sure not to touch the screen for 24hrs when it was put on?

    Naked. The question kinda reminds me of visiting my friend's house as a child and seeing their parent's couch all covered in plastic. I just can't wrap my mind around that logic (or lack thereof).

    I was naked...but not from lack of wanting a case. Just hadn't found one that looked effective and was inexpensive (I mean, really, $29 for something that a kid in a third-world country made for $.03?). I did not like any of the "hard covers" that I saw, and hadn't seen the silicone that's supposedly available.

    That all changed in the mall where I saw one of those cell kiosks, and just for giggles I thought I'd see what they had. They had some generic pseudo-soft cover case for $14.99. It seemed to fit and I liked the look, so I was considering it. Then she told me that if I bought 2, she would give me 10% off and sell them to me for $25.

    Her lack of basic math skills sold me and I brought home two :)

    And I'm still as paranoid and OCD about it as ever.

    'Cause it ain't so pretty after kissing the concrete.

    I'm not really a case person either but it really depends on the case. Some of Vja's, for example, are very nice. However, I tend to go with a holster while at work and with just a screen/body protector the rest of the time.

    It's a subjective matter. The beauty of the device is as well.

    Guess it's another YMMV thing. I've never had an IS last less than a year or so. When the corners start to peel I have them replace it.

    You know, there's absolutely no chance of me dropping my couch while I'm out and about with it in my hand on a day-to-day basis...

    I use my Verizon Shell/Holster Combo at work and during outdoor activities where the Droid could get scratched or damaged, BUT when I go out on the town etc, my Droid goes naked and slips into soft lined Bergamo Leather Case.. Best of both worlds! :)
