Congrats on your Golden Gate cs flip case you won and Happy (early) Birthday as well. I wonder if the spark you submitted will be put into production for a case Speck may make. I'm sure they would need your permission as well being you created it. But how cool would that be?!

Pink, I'm a marketing guy and let me tell you, if CaseMate has any marketing, customer service or business acumen, they'll send you a refund. I didn't realize just HOW peeved off you were about case until now. If they're smart, they'll give you a refund. The $50 (or however much the case cost) is a lot less than the impact your negative experience will have on their business! They've already successfully alienated you, but I'm sure you won't have nice things to say about CaseMate/the DIY case if friends, family or other iMore users ask. Keep me in the loop about what happens, I'm curious to see how they respond. (PS - Hope I didn't offend you with my "coupon" comment; I didn't want it to come off like I was downplaying the problem or being jerky)
Speck is having an issue with their new website and people claiming their GGB case. I can't wait for it to arrive - should be here this week sometime.
That would be AWESOME if they made my design into a case! I don't think it will happen now, but I could definitely see them running a contest like that in the future! I think that would be an excellent idea!! Imagine some of the creative responses they would get!!
Thanks for the birthday wish too

Only thing I could say is maybe take a picture of your phone in the case and post it. I don't know if we'll be able to tell a difference or not.

On most other apps I don't really notice it. I'm going to leave it in. I did see where some people tore out the built-in protector and just applied one of their own to the phone itself.

Has anyone heard of the Catalyst Escape Capsule?? Another waterproof one but it's clear which is cool, it still shows off your iPhone. I won one on there Facebook page can't wait to try it out.

If you would, I'd appreciate it if you could post your overall experience & use with the case I'd love to hear about it indeed!! I see that the company is taking pre-orders due to ship June 12th as well.

Just an update with my DIY Case-Mate fiasco. I called on Saturday and left a v/m because they were closed. This morning a rep returned my call - she said the case is warrantied, so they could produce another one if i emailed her the image i wanted and she didn't understand how my case 'slipped through' the quality inspection before it got sent out(she saw my pics i emailed with my oval dots). I told her that the case couldn't be printed/produced correctly the first time and i'm not willing to try a 2nd time & i asked for a refund with a prepaid mailing label as well. The rep verified everything with the supervisor because it was a custom case, and emailed me my RAN# along with a prepaid label.
Its packed up and at the post office waiting to go back, and i will be receiving a full refund for my total dis-satisfaction I'm happy with the outcome & that i'm not stuck with a $40 DIY case that didn't meet my expectations.
Also, just to add in, I found a pink with white polka dotted tpu case on amazon. Case plus shipping is costing me $2.98 can't beat that!!

I've since been using my Uncommon capsule cases - i have the black polka dot one and the purple with white birds one(i'll try to post pix later-but they are avail on VzW's site) I really like the capsule cases alot - they're similar to the way a candyshell sits on the phone except its a slider style-the bottom slides off for easy docking which now that i have the apple dock, it works well with it. I've also found a purple polka dot capsule on Amazon, so i may get that soon. When i'm not using my Apple dock if i need to charge at night, i throw on my Mophie
Brin, as far as going into the case business - it would be ALOT to plan out for taking into account sales, returns & warrantied cases etc - it could become a headache lol.

so, i finally rec'd my pink polka dotted case & i also ordered 2 packs home button stickers as well. I'm completely matched up !! Totally love it !!
The case was the best $3 in total i ever spent, and each pack of buttons were about $1.20!!

Pink, you're case has completely been "Pink-ified." Looking good!! I'm sporting my white and black CandyShell. It looks really nice with a black iPhone.
I'll post a picture of the Golden Gate Bridge case I won whenever it comes (in case anyone is interested or just wants to see what one looks like). Speck had an issue with the coupon codes (their new website didn't want to cooperate with a free purchase). It shipped yesterday, so I should have it soon!
