Iphone case suggestions?
 
I am about to joint the masses and get an iphone; it will actually cost me less per month than my current phone. I will miss the sliding keyboard.

When she bought a iphone, I bought my sister a otterbox for it. I like the otterbox "defender", but i wonder about stuff getting between the screen of the case and the screen of the phone and causing scratches. I like the look of their "commuter" cases, but i wonder how protective they are. Otterbox also has some "reflex" series cases that use air cushioning, but i don't know anybody with one.

Any input on iphone cases? The price limit is $50, but i would rather keep it about $25.

I've had my IPhone in an Otterbox Defender since I got it 3 years ago. I take it out and check to see if it got wet or dust in case a couple times a year. According to my son it still looks brand new and I drop it a lot a few times in puddles.

I literally threw my iPhone and it stuck in the wall. Had an otterbox on it. It was fine.

I wondered about that.

My current touch screen phone has a clear sticker over the screen to protect it and no case.

Otterbox... I accidentally threw mine into a wall when I learned I couldn't walk up stairs and text.

With stuff getting between the cover and screen, I've taken mine apart twice in almost two years to clean it out.. no big deal.
