    Hello all......

    I got myself an iPhone and have been scouring the internet for a Charger cover/case. I have seen few and the ones I've seen don't look so great. Anyone know where I might get a good one?, online or locally in SD?.

    I have seen some in the mall, but they look really cheap and flimsy. I bought a plastic case at a cell phone accessory booth in the mall (not a chargers one, just a generic one for a older phone I had years ago) and it didn't quite fit the phone right and broke the first time I dropped it, so I am not very keen on buying from them again.

    I will keep my eyes open next time I'm out and about and if I see something I'll grab it. What model do you have 2G or 3G?

    I have the 3GS. Thanks RTL. Amazing that the NFL have not got themselves into gear on this one. You can get all the soccer teams in Europe. But I want a Charger one.

    just an fyi to everyone, both are stickers, not hard cases. I used something similar to these (basically they were ink jet ready print at home whatever you want sticker kits) for my old ipod, they don't do much in the way of protection but they are cool for customizing w/ whatever you want

    the gelaskins look like they are made of better material if this is the way anyone wants to go

    OR

    skinit then buy a clear cover to go over the skin/phone (i have something very similar to this on mine now and it has proven to be very sturdy...so far)

    Maybe, maybe not. It seems very absurd to me that the NFL Shop doesnt have some kind of iPhone case readily available.

    I'm gonna buy some of the do it yourself skin kits and print some up then throw them on my iPhone under the clear cover and see how it looks. I'll post pics as soon as I do.

    I have about 6 or 7 different cases for my iPhone. They are all over the internet, ebay, Amazon. Ive even bought some that came straight from Hong Kong and were only $1.99 each.

    I have three that look just like the back of a 3G but are different colors,( dark blue, yellow, orange) a black leather one and a couple others that are black & white and blue & white and another that is plain black.

    Just look around, there are tons of them and the leather one was the most expensive and was only $14 which also included a belt clip holster that i dont use. All the others were $5.00 and under. There are so many on ebay you wont know which to choose from :lol:
    Hec i think now you can get them in bundles and they are even cheaper than what i paid.
