Just got my $3.50 BoxWave iPhone 4 case today...

Interesting case. Not bad, for the price... the color isn't quite what I expected though... I'm glad I went for the blue, once it's on the iPhone, it's quite a darker shade...

Received mine yesterday.

I like it. Seems to fit well, the roughness on the edges makes holding the iPhone easier, and yet the smooth backing means it slides into and out of the pocket easily (much better than the 'scuba suit' I was using before from my iPhone 3GS!)

I also like the asymmetry in the back - it makes it easy to know when way it 'up' on the iPhone 4.

Mine arrived yesterday too. I don't remember paying anything. I thought they were free. Fit nicely, controls accessible, covers the "trouble spot". If I did pay $3.50 (S/H?), it would be a good deal.

Yep--I got mine yesterday, and it is good-Thanks to the OP!!.

I use a leather horizontal hip case and the Bumper was too sticky. The Boxwave was fine, but I like a true hard case, so today I bought this Speck [www.speckproducts.com] and I really like it.
It appears to have a fabric back in the photos, but it is a full hard case with a fabric cover.

Yeah the two-tone aspect of the case is pretty cool. What I don't like so much about this case is where they decided to cut out material -- for example the Apple logo on the back, what purpose does that serve? And the side volume buttons, it would have made more sense just to have them covered with the flexible material.

I think I would still have Apple buy me one . . . for free, of course. I would imagine that having two cases is not a bad thing! dunno smiley

I got a couple of very cheap ones from Meritline (~ $2) and I basically got what I paid for. Neither works well with a screen protector, the sides of the cases peel off and get under the protector plastic.

This one, from an Amazon seller, is much better, and still cheap:

Oh, and while we're on the subject-- is anyone here using a screen protector, and have a good recommendation for one?

Once I had a better case, the cheap protectors from Meritline were fine:

Mine is currently "in transit" to my office for delivery. I guess I should walk over to the mailroom to see if it is here yet.

Just noticed something I *don't* like about it-- it seems rather loose around the edges, and is starting to show signs of buckling at one side. Good that I didn't pay anything other than S&H for this!
