Best iPhone case

Long story short:

iPhone broke, so I bought a new one. I also bought a plastic case for it because that's the one the guy at the apple store said was the best.

Couple of nights ago, dropped my phone on some carpet that I guess was pretty hard. The cover broke but my iphone is fine.

The newest question...what kind of case is best? The plastic ones are pretty expensive and if they keep breaking that's crazy! But if they will protect my phone better than the silicone ones I will buy another. What have you had the best experiences with? I know there are some silicone ones that are heavier duty, could you help point me in the right direction? thanks!

Louis Vuitton makes some really nice ones. I suggest Epi Leather or Damier Canvas. They are also extremely durable and well made

Seriously Shi anything technological that I touch breaks.

And I do not want to pay LV type money...I'm talking plastic case from best buy money.

I have a Seidio slider one and I like it because it doesn't ask much bulk.

If you're so clumsy why not just get a phone that isn't so sensitive

I use a Contour Flick in combination with a screen protector. While it is ugly and over priced for what you get, I can say that it has been very effective in protecting my iphone. I drop my phone every other day on concrete, tile, etc. No issues yet.

Case-Mate Black Signature Series Leather Case for iPhone 3G


I think this is the one I have, its black leather with screen protector.
Got it when I bought the phone at AT&T.
Its the one the guy there recommended as I was looking at a different one.
He said this was better.


I have only dropped it once on concrete, and all was completely perfect.

I hope to never drop it again.

cute snarky statement but actually I have never been clumsy with phones before. I had never ever broken one (or even had mine look scratched up before) until this phone which I have now dropped a total of two times just both times have managed to break something on it.

I dunno, but what I DO know, is I decided to forgo something pretty and cute, for what was recommended to be a better stronger more protective case.
Hence my black leather

I had this same case for my iPhone, and it is really a good one. However, for me, I carry my phone in my pocket (being a guy) and it (the case) got ruined fairly quickly. Although, if you are carrying it in a purse I'm sure that it would last quite a long time and would protect you're phone very well.

I got this silicone one in black from the Apple store when I got my phone. They do have other colors...

Speck | PixelSkin Case for iPhone 3G

I've dropped my phone on my driveway and down my steps and it just bounces around. I It's pretty thick and the Apple store recommended this one to me. They also have ones called "Tough Skins" which you may want to try as well. Until Nov 30% select styles are 50% off. I pd $25 for mine at Apple.

Good Luck!

Welcome to SwitchEasy'

in either black or red/pink.
I like pink...is the case hard? Its sounds like its a hard one, I actually like this one a lot...I like the print and colors but its relatively cheap and seems like its practical.

yeah it's a hard case.

STFU AVATAR! I hate phone cases so much that this is hard for me, believe it or not. But I am not taking the risk of breaking another one of these and shelling out ANOTHER $200 that I don't have.

fuck no

if you can't keep it safe don't own it. i hate people who put $600 sleek phones into gross chunky ass cases.

I like "iPhone: will it blend" MUCH more.

seriously, avatar I have dropped my phone twice and both times have just managed to break something. Get out of my thread.
