Hi Everyone!

I want to buy a skin for my new Rockin iPhone 4!! I'm a poor college girl without alot of dough so anything under $20-25 would be ideal. I would like a Full Body wrap/skin is it protects it. I hate bulky cases.

So far through some YouTube searches I found these companies.

SGP - Limited Selections
Slickwraps - Pretty Sweet Skins! Do they ship from USA?
Ultracase - They ship from China
Gelaskins - Look cool. Like the designer stuff.
Skinit - Same as Gelaskins

I am a fan of iFrogz covers/cases. They give plenty of access to all the ports but protect just about evything else. I also like the texture: they are "gripable" but don't have that sticky feel that most silicone skins have. Oh, and they have a lot of great colors, too. Very affordable, in your price range at places like BestBuy.

I'm a fan of the case-mate stuff, myself.

Thanks ghporter & -Q-!!

I'll look into these companies. Do they offer skins or cases? Looking for a non bulky case.

Thanks Again!

My ex had a Gelaskin for her 3G, and it worked as advertised. If you have it on for a long time, it'll leave a sticky residue, but nothing that can't be cleaned off.

IFrogz are very thin, non-bulky cases.

iFrogz iPhone 4 Cases

They have a bunch of styles, some of which are practically skins, ther'reso thin. I like their original, the Luxe case. And those colors are just wonderful.
