I'm wondering if you use, or see the need, for a protective case for your Eris. I have a fairly nice case that does add a little security and girth, but it certainly takes away from the sleek form of the phone. Plus, I don't think these will scratch like the iPhone / iPod touch. The body on these scratch very easily. Just wondering if anyone has wear issues, etc. The texture seems similar to friends VW interiors of the early 2000s which eventually peeled and became a real mess. Anyway, appreciate any thoughts.
