    I just picked up a Speck case that surrounds the whole phone, but its a bit hefty and I'm still in the market for something else that slim but still surrounds the edges so it doesn't lose paint.

    I have the D3O impact band http://www.amazon.com/Tech21-D3O-Impact-Band-iPhone/dp/B009ATWBH2 . Very slim, seems sturdy, dropped the phone a few times and no damage to anything. Somewhat expensive though, and no screen protection.

    incase

    They're very low profile and with a perfect texture. Nothing fancy whatsoever.

    I was looking at those. I didn't like the idea of a case that separated in the middle. The snap case seemed to leave too many edges uncovered as well.

    I've owned every iPhone except the 3GS, never bothered to get apple care....well I finally broke one. Dropped my iPhone 5 on my concrete garage floor getting out carrying too many things. As soon as I heard it land I knew it was bad news. Screen was spider webbed. Feels bad man. Replacement phone from Apple store was $230. :fu:

    Fuuuuk, that sucks. Well, at least it wasn't $650.

    Ordered the Switcheasy Tones. Will report back.

    My friend got the screen on his 4 replaced for $80, but tbh I'd prefer spending $230 for the peace of mind of knowing it was replaced through Apple.

    I can't believe it's now illegal to unlock your phone. Fascism!

    Yeh, I read about that. Unlock your phone and go to jail. Good ol' USA.

    No, And it's unlikely that anyone will.

    This was always part of the dmca but was suspended pending review. Phones that were unlocked before the final decision was made are grandfathered. How will authorities or carriers want to make complaints be able to tell when a phone was unlocked?

    Meanwhile, unlocked phones will still be available direct from manufacturers. Albeit at a higher price.

    IANAL but under the DMCA, it's a felony to break DRM and rip your own DVDs and Blu-ray discs, so you can play them on your iPhone or iPad. But has anyone been arrested, tried and convicted of this?

    The charges will be levied on businesses that help people unlock phones not individuals, I suspect.

    Anyone got any must have apps for a jailbroken Iphone?

    As the company I currently work for issued a workphone, and I detest having to lug two phones around, I ordered the 2phone kit to have two sims on standby on my 4S. As this requires the phone to be jailbroken, I might as well add some more apps for jailbroken phonesProblem is., I havent found anything worthwiloe thusfar, except one that allows me to put 5 apps in the launchbar..
