    yes! its seriously rediculous how thin it is. I was thinking it might be, cause the old agent18 case for the 1st gen added a bit of bulk. This case adds like NOTHING.

    Seriously i cant rave enough about it.... i love the sides too, makes the phone even easier to hold on to/less likely to slip too.

    Does this add any friction when pulling the phone out of your pocket? I hated my revo because of this.... I would always end up pulling the inside of my pocket out with my phone :squint:

    was thinking about it.. but it looks like that case is so sleek that the extra protection wouldn't really take away from the iphone being small.

    I had a Griffin Wave case on my old iPhone. It was the best case I used and have seen so far. It's made of polycarbonate. Has enough grip where it won't slip from your hands, but where it won't snag to your pocket , like those rubber/silicone cases. Rubber/silicone cases also stretch and lose their form eventually. A friend and I got a free 2 pack Incipio cases made of rubber. I'll use this until I can find new/similar Griffin Wave case to replace it. They come in several colors.

    I've got the Agent18 case and it's amazing. The best thing about it is that I've got a Universal Dock, and this includes an adapter for it, so I can dock my iPhone with the case one. When I first saw the cases, they all looked like shit, but this is the only one that looked half way decent. After using it for a few days now, I highly recommend it. It's an amazing case. Tomorrow I'm finally getting an anti-glare film for it, so it will be all complete!

    Same here. I really don't want to cover up the phone this time with a case. Thinking I might get one of those Bodyguardz type shields although I wouuld probably mess it up when I put it on. I hear some malls have shops that sell these and they will put it on. Never seen them though.

    Is there a difference b/t the Invisible shield and the Bodyguardz or are they the same, quality wise?

    bestskinsever, bodyguardz, and invisible shield are all the same film. you pay a lot for the packaging and some include a spray bottle of solution for application.

    i recommend the bestskinsever. you can order 2 for the price of the other ones b/c you're likely mess up on the first application. i've got a bestskinsever on my current iphone, the first gen iphone i had, and i've put one on my gf's iphone and her nano. not a problem out of any of them
