    Default Naked Fascinates?

    Just curious, does anyone around here rock their Fascinate with no case? I just got the body glove and I like it a lot, but I was just wondering if anyone went naked and if they had any scratches.

    Edit: Decided to take the body glove back. Sticking with the Otterbox Commuter for now.

    I did for a while, and I noticed the back of mine had some scuff marks. Nothing to bad but kind of annoyed me. Plus the damn thing is slippery without a case... especially when your hands are greasy or sweaty -_-

    Usually I always keep my phone naked because I hate cases. However, my phone fell out of my pocket one day and cracked the corner. I dished out the $50 for an insurance replacement, and now I'm using the kickstand case from Verizon because it's fairly slim.
    To answer the question though.. when it was naked it didn't really get scratched. I always keep my phone in a pocket separate from my keys or anything else. If it wasn't for sitting with my leg up, wearing basketball shorts, and a concrete surface below me, it'd probably still be fine today.. lol

    I use the Dual Cover on my SF and DX. Silicone ring for those edge drops, smooth plastic for easy in/easy out in the pocket.

    I had a silicone case for mine and the back got more scratched than when I had it naked. I went back to phone nudity. Maybe I should rephrase that...

    I have an invisible shield on the screen, and a zagg skin on the back. Doesn't really add much bulk, but still gives protection, and a little bit of grip as well.

    until very recently i've gone naked. one reason i like the FASN8 is because its so thin and i've been hesitant to add any bulk to it via a case. it got a little scuffed and scratched in my pocket but not enough to bother me.

    for some reason, i found myself on verizon looking at "vskins" (www.vskins.com) by skinit and now my FASN8 is sporting a Red Wings skin and im actually pretty pleased with it.

    the "skin" is a precisely cut 2-piece "sticker", basically, that you overlay on the 2 halves of your phone (front and back).

    if you are patient and very careful, its really not difficult to carefully place each piece onto the phone so that it looks and feels nice.

    its very thin so it doesnt really add any perceptible bulk and it does make it a bit less slippery.

    it did take me a little to get used to the different feel of it, as the overlay doesn't cover the corners so there are edges where your fingers grip the phone that you can feel. but after a few days i'm liking it. the fit is very good so that it looks like it is part of the phone/case - which is how it should look, right?

    skinit, the company behind these vskins, states that the sticky stuff on the back of the skin will not leave any residue if you want to peel it off, and that is the reason i felt it was worth a shot; otherwise, i wouldn't have bothered.

    they have a ton of options, including sports teams, if you like that kind of stuff.

    if i have any problems with it down the road i'll update my post but i would recommend it based on my experience so far.

    Mine is nude. No problems. The inside of my jeans pocket isn't exactly a hazardous environment.

    I'm not too clumsy either so everything is going good so far.

    Always in the buff, never use a screen protector. The screen is Corning Gorilla Glass. It takes alot to scratch it. Back of mine is pretty scratched up, but that is replaceable.

    p.s. GO WINGS!

    I often use a basic black silicone case...
    However, I mostly wear skirts with boots, so I tend to have a naked phone tucked in the side of my boot because I never have pockets and I hate purses. (BTW, I'm a girl haha)

    My friends all laugh because it totally looks like I've got a knife stuck in my boot...

    I like most that have replied am naked, thought about a case but I love the thin-ness of the phone my back is a little scratched nothing to really speak on. As long as you are careful you should be fine.

    I will say I have seen some dust collecting in the tiny little crack between the glass and the phone. My OCD is kicking in and it is starting to annoy the crap out of me. Not sure if a case will fix or if I should just take some "duster" to it

    after about a week or so now it still looks shiny new.

    i was most concerned about the edges peeling up but they haven't moved a bit. whatever the adhesive is, its working very well. of course it remains to be seen if there's any glue stuck to the phone whenever i peel this off but i have no plans on doing that so for right now who cares? i don't think the skin is reusable after that.

    the back is easier than the front to put on but its not hard. you just have to be real careful, slow and patient if you want it to be aligned nice and perfect. if you follow their directions it should come out nice with no bubbles or creases.

    Even if there are scratches on the back, It is really easy to get a replacement back cover

    Man I usually NEVER use a case but this sucker is like a bar of soap sometimes. I got this case and it's by far the coolest case I've ever owned for a phone:

    I always run mine naked, but yesterday I shatered the screen when I was running and it flew out of my hand while I was changing a song. My replacement will be getting a case.
