iPhone 4 Incipio Double Covers for Verizon
The first available iPhone case from Verizon, the Incipio Double Cover, is a durable two-piece cover that will give your Verizon iPhone a little bit of added protection. The silicon cover and acrylic shell work together to offer shock absorbing coverage for your phone. The corners and back of your phone will stay protected from scratches with the acrylic shell. With two layers of coverage you'd think that you would have to worry about carrying around a bulky case, but you don't. This iPhone case is very thin for the added protection that you get.
Designed specifically for the Verizon CDMA iPhone, the Verizon iPhone 4 Gumdrop Case has multi-layer protection and a replaceable screen protector. This Drop Series Verizon iPhone case offers shock absorption, drop protection and rubber bumpers to protect the corners of the phone. The $44.95 price tag may seem a bit steep, but may be well worth it for protection from "extreme ruggedness" as the case maker advertises.
Touted as the "hard case with a soft touch", the Verizon iPhone 4 Pop! case has a modern look but doesn't compromise on functionality; it still offers great protection for your phone. Lightweight plastic and soft rubber are molded together to give you impact-resistant coverage. The case is also designed to protect the face of your iPhone if you lay it down flat on its screen. A screen protection kit is also included for the same price. The flexible plastic shell still gives you access to all the phone's ports.
This sleek looking iPhone 4 skin is compatible with Verizon iPhone 4. The flexible material has an anti-slip grip and reinforced edges. The iPhone skin may not be the most protective from drops and bumps, but does offer some shock absorption. Unlike silicone, this unique material does not gather dust or fingerprints.
It's an egg crate like you've never seen before. Well, not literally, but the iPhone 4 Egg Case was designed to look similar to an egg carton. The dips and bumps of the case not only resemble an egg carton, but offer the same shock resistance that an egg carton does. The silicone case is impact-resistant as well, cushioning your phone from bumps and drops. A screen protection kit is also included with this trendy Verizon iPhone case.
This flexible plastic shell with silicone base is no ordinary iPhone case. Sure it gives you ease of mind with added protection from impact, but this case has a bit more "personality" than your typical iPhone case. The Verizon iPhone 4 Monsta Case turns the back of your phone into a creepy looking monster face. Abstract? Maybe. Cool? Definitely.
This carbon fiber leather holster has complete protection for your iPhone 4 for Verizon. A fine grade of Napa leather is wrapped around the molded shell which is designed to be impact resistant. The iPhone 4 Carbon Fiber Case + Holster Combo has a 360-degree ratcheting belt clip. This case and holster receives high customer reviews. It is compatible with AT&T's iPhone 4 as well as Verizon's iPhone 4.
This Verizon iPhone case is more for looks than protection. iLUV Metallic iPhone Case gives your phone a chrome finish while protecting from wear and tear. Although it isn't designed for shock absorption or drop protection, it will give your phone a buffer against scratches and dust.
