This is a pretty decent case for short term use I think. So far I haven't had any issues with it, except that my phone slides out the side constantly. I think a small fastener of some kind would have been great. The form of the case also slightly (very slightly) blocks the bottom right and left corners of my touch screen (iphone 3G). I like the card holding slots and the case isn't bulky, plus it was cheap and made a great replacement case until I get something sturdier.
