    Well as the title states do you think it is necessary to have a case on your IPhone? I have a screen protector on the back of my IPhone and nothing on the front. I just like the look and feel of the phone so much more when it is not in a case. I have had my phone like this for about a month and have to scratches or dings on the phone. What do you guys think?

    Drop it once from a height of 4 feet and you will understand why a case is needed.

    Get a good case and use it when you know youre going to be in an environment that demands it. For example, I have the lifeproof case and it seals it against everything. This weekend, Im going to a football game and it will be raining. Lifeproof case.
    Right now, Im sitting inside. Its naked! The way I like it

    I have screen protector front and back and it holds up pretty well. I even drop it on the rubber floor waist high when I'm on the exercise bike and no scratches. I used to have a case but when I upgraded and sold the old one i felt I did not have an iPhone because it was hiding behind a case so no more case and enjoy the look and feel of an iPhone.

    well there are times when I drop it, it bounces and hit the bike frame luckily no scratch. I can say that this phone is not as delicate like most people think, it can take a hard hit.

    I have a skin from iCarbon and a basic bumper case from Griffin, that doesn't add a lot of bulk. The naked iPhone is just way too slick and I worry about dropping it. However, I don't have a screen protector. I had my iPod Touch for two years and no scratches, so I'm going to take a chance with my iPhone.

    its not necessary but its like a saftey net just in case something happens and it falls.

    i have a ZAGG on the front and back then run clear and black bumper you almost cant even see it. I dont like anything more then a bumper because they take away from the slimness of the phone itself.

    the iphone is the only phone that i have with case on it, due to fact that it's body is made up of mostly glass. drop that sucker just time and you know it's gonna be a wrap. and it's shame cause it really is a nice looking phone.

    Would you go out to the beach on a hot sunny day without sunscreen?
