    I have a case bought from this wpcentral. But most of the time I don't use it. I like how the device looks without it. my device isn't marked up or scratched. But then I'm pretty careful with my stuff I had to work in-order to pay for them.

    I am pretty indecisive on whether I want a case or not. On the Focus, I definitely didn't want a case. On the Trophy, I bought a case and used it a while (and liked it, since it made the buttons more responsive), but I have slowly gotten used to using it without a case.

    No good choices available for the DVP so, I am running case-free for now. If there was an acceptable option offered then I might be willing to consider it.

    I have a case on my Nuron because it is a slippery phone without one. If I get a Lumia I wont get a case cause that phone is just too sexy to cover up.

    yeah, that one's not bad but... it just isn't selling itself to me so... I guess I'll stick with no case for now.

    Otterbox cases are also a little bulky. I've stuck with Otterbox for a while now. There was a mobile site that did a drop test with iPhones a few years back and at that time Otterbox rated the best in their drop test so I've stuck with them for now.

    Then again I never cover up my phones. I think of it as being an insult to the designer. Using the phone as it was created to be used makes more sense to me.

    Surely You might end up scratching it, but the odds of damaging the phone from putting on covers has been more the case for me. On 2 of my BB's I scratched the screen from putting it in the OEM pouch. I guess that a grain of sand was stuck in the pouch doing the damage.

    I've a Lumia 800 which comes with a case, it's totally unnecessary though, two months on and the phone is flawless aside from a small scratch on the silver plate around the camera at the back.

    I never use a case on any phone I have had. And especially my Terrific Trophy, I wouldn't want to hurt her feelings by keeping our love affair a secret. :D

    I have a case and it makes my phone look really freaking ugly. But I had dropped the phone several times, so it's a life saver.

    The poll questions are loaded. Who hasn't bought a case, simply because it takes serious effort to find a good one? (and yes, that does confirm I'm a lazy multiplatform dev... or just burnt out of finding cases for all my phones).

    Shell and screen protector on my Surround since the day I got it. And a belt case when I am out and about. Guess that might be why I have never "needed" to return or replace a phone in 15 years.

    I really like the feel of the Titan so I don't use a case.

    I use cheapo cases off eBay :) The hard two-piece navy blue one is my favorite - looks killer and makes the power button easier to push. I have dropped the phone one time on concrete flat on its back, and I think the hard case helped prevent damage to the phone. Also, since I use cheapie cases, its affordable to keep ordering new ones all the time!

    I had two different cases for my Focus. Each time I wound up taking it off. One was actually scratching my phone and the other was allowing dust/dirt underneath it and I found a couple of "pits" in the bezel around my screen. Going naked now except for a screen protector.

    I hate cases but 1 drop of my Lumia 800 has caused a considerable nick in the body so I may have to reconsider.

    I've had a million phones since my Nokia 3210 and I've never used a case. Of course back then phones were seemingly made of stone and nigh-on indestructible in comparison to the delicately balanced pieces of kit they are now but still, no cases for me.

    This confirmed what I thought. Most people who use cases assume that most of the general public also uses cases. My guess was that it was closer to 40% use cases. According to this poll, its actually closer to only 33%.

    Any case I buy would be at least 1000x more expensive than my phone cost for $.01. I already have spent that much on a screen protector. If anything I may get the body shield film for the back, but that would make it about 3000x the cost of my phone in protectors. :)

    It's not really about what you paid for the phone, but what it would cost to replace it. I assume you got it for .01 as a subsidized price for signing a contract. If something were to happen to your phone, getting a new one off contract would likely cost much more.

    I've had a cheapy ebay case on my HD7 since the day I got it. When I take it out of the case, it's pretty much as good as new, which I'm pretty chuffed about as it looks like I'll be keeping this phone another year.
