What is a good quality, sturdy iPhone 3G cover or skin that I can buy in NZ? Or a see-through sticker thing that goes on the back and on the screen - something to protect my phone.
Any links would be appreciated...

Thanks.

I use the SwitchEasy CapsuleRebel case on my iPhone and really like it. Here's their website: http://www.switcheasy.com/products/Rebel/Rebel.php and they can be had for about $40 on TradeMe - there's a few listed on there as of writing this.

A bit too chunky and bulky for me.

Thanks anyway.

Invisible Protective shield.

http://www.zagg.com

Bought one through Trademe and then a local seller trying to fob them off under the same brand name and they were crap immitations!

Costs about 24.95 US + $10 postage. Arrived in a week, very easy to apply and does an excellent job.

30% off if you use discount code SITEWIDE30.


Goodluck!

I at time of purchase of Iphone 3 G  (launch day NZ - July 10th )bought a Griffin Hard case.
Several weeks ago I happened to drop the phone as I was getting it out of my pocket where it normally lives. There was no damage sustained to the phone whatsoever.

Although It may seem bulky to look at its very practical. I took this case off my phone last few days for 1st time to check phone and clean the case as some dust gets in between the case and the hard cover screen over time.
The phone has no cracks and is fine in all respects
I did buy a protective cover for it but because of the stories Ivbe heard about there application and my satisfaction re the Griffin I havnt bothered as yet with it.

That sounds great. But I was just wondering if it does any protection for when you drop it. It sounds great for scratches and all, though.

Alright. I found a pretty good case - the Incase Slider

It looks good, is simple and lightweight. But does anyone know where I can buy it in NZ?

Thanks
