My free Speck Case from apple arrived today, fits perfectly, and is awesome, with a random slight black tartan back. Thank God. although i liked my 50 dollar ILove case, the annoying silicon ends kept catching on stuff, this new speck case in soft on the inside and solid on the outside.

Is that the speck HD case?  That's the one I plan to get.. combined with a zagg screen protector (in fact I have a 'maximum' cover.. so if I decide to 'go naked' I still can).

My 4 arrived yesterday. The screen protector and silicon case that I got off ebay for $3.67 are great. Can't even tell the screen protector is on, applied it straight out of the box and no dust. Case isn't the greatest but will do till I get the one I ordered with the free case program.

I got my leather pouch from iconic last week. Its very thin so adds little bulk to the phone and is a great fit and looks smart. Keeping my phone naked for a while so the leather pouch is great to protect the phone in my pocket with all my keys and loose change

My free case is slated to show up Friday but I'm betting I'll see it Thursday.

Got given a clear Incase snap case. It's...okay. It smudges like crazy, so am awaiting my Smoke coloured case that is in transit. Same style and concept but I'm hoping the colour doesn't show up finger prints and smudges on the back.

Also, you get dust into the case even though it 'snaps' onto your iPhone snuggly. Having said that, it's a good protector and prevents scratches on the back. Can't complain for a free case 'o)

Got my PixelSkin HD (Seems to be revision 3, better than revision 2 at least).

It's definitely much much better than the cheap silicone case I was using previously. The look of the case is much nicer in real life compared to online review pictures.

Got my free bumper today.. I was suspicious about how it would look installed but it fits perfectly and looks like it's part of the iPhone.

Didn't fit snugly at first but after 15 mins under the hair dryer that's all solved.

I put my Zagg ultimate skin on my iphone tonight.. what a nightmare.

For a start the skin isn't cut properly. So whilst you are trying to free it from the backing paper, the edges can (and will) slightly stretch.

I put on the rear skin and started putting on the side skin stickers. The side ones looked stupid (especially as they had pinched off at the corners due to not being cut properly at the factory) so I removed those side ones and didn't bother continuing with doing the sides.

I got the back looking resonable, a few small bubbles which should 'work out in 2 to 3 days'. I then did the front.. same thing there with the skin snagging in the corners and near impossible to remove from the backing paper. Not sure what you're supposed to do with the button skin, I applied it, but it looked stupid so I removed it.

So my thoughts on Zagg are.... If you:

* Have plenty of patience
* Are very dextrous and nimble with your fingers
* Live in a completely dust free enviroment
* Aren't afraid to put liquids near an expensive electronic device

..then it's probably for you. We bought two Zaggs (one for my iphone, one for my wifes) so depending on how the front/rear looks on mine in 2 to 3 days, will depend on wether we apply the skin to hers, or seek another option.

A little disappointed with Zagg thus far. :-(

P.S The orange peel effect is a reality.. So far I am seeing it... Will report back in a couple of days.

I had the exact same experience.. Took me 2 hours to apply it.. Looked terrible after 2 days and took it off..

I emailed them for a replacement and they want me to pay for the postage to send the replacement which is acceptable, but they also wanted me to post the "damaged" one back.... Rip off!

Yup.  If it still looks awful in a couple of days I'll remove it and we'll sell the other skin (which is unopened).
There's got to be an easier way to protect the screen!

I tried to put a cover on my iPad and struggled with it so much that I took it off. I decided not to bother with my iPhone and am just going to get some kind of case/sleeve to protect it. I got one scratch on my iPhone 3G in the two years that I had it and the glass on iPhone 4 seems stronger than that so at this stage I've got my fingers crossed that the case/sleeve will be enough.
