    i saw those too, Ame....now is it just me or does the aubergine/cobalt and royal purple/peacock look identical when you click on the thumbnail to get a larger view ???

    i'd like to try one of the colors out, but at the same time, i'm really hoping they'll add one of the purps to the flip series. I'm totally enjoying the bubblegum one i have. I still change my case often, but i keep going back to the flippie one
    theres just something about it that i'm 'flippin' out about lol
    Haha I was just doing the same last night! Comparing. And YES they look identical! I like the flip too. Have 2 and gave my daughter one. Wish they'd come out with more that will look better with the white. Gave my daughter the blue black one because it just didn't look right on my white. She didn't mind of course. ;-) need more colors for flip and I love the white with color trim. Wish there were more of those too.

    Yea I think they used the wrong images. I am hoping they get the peacock and black options in satin.

    LOL, ok its not just me then & my color issues i have !!

    I'm looking to try the black shell/peacock silicone on my white 4S - i really like the crispness of that one indeed - and i'll prob go for the flip shell just because.

    As for the satin shells, i'm thinking of trying the sour apple one and see how i like it - if the color is anywhere near the snakebite one, it'll be cute !! (i wound up sending back snakebite because i thought i'd never really use that color much & now i really do miss it)

    i'm using my mulberry fitted today & i forgot how much i liked this one - its a little more sleeker than the candyshell. SO, i have a little shopping list i'm throwing together for Speck and i was eyeing up one or 2 of the fabric fitted shells/Burton fitted to add on as well. Thankfully i have a code to use for a good bit of a discount

    I put my iPhone back in service today and my candyshell in white/moonsuit cracked. I picked up a new candyshell but went with a white/pink flip (I had to demo docks a lot and remove the case and I think that caused the crack). Lord I have missed my iPhone but what's really weird is I really miss some of the 9900 - the notification light and keyboard especially. Who knew?

    I switched back to my Ballistics today. I used the Otterbox all last week while I was on vacation. My collection isn't nearly as big as Pink's yet, but my next purchase may just be one of the Candyshell ones everyone talks about. Only thing I'm not too convinced about is the lack of built in screen protector.

    Laura, as great as the Ballistic case was, i personally didn't care for it:o idk why. Maybe because i'm just so used to either the OB defenders or my cs's, and my LP when i use it. I wound up returning it - but the seller i used for it on Amazon called "Seller1on1" was excellent btw. i rec'd my package quickly when i initially ordered. then when i had to obtain return RMA from them on Thurs., they were very prompt with their reply - they received my package & i'm already credited back the amount. If i use Amazon in the future, i will certainly buy from them again

    I also got the pink silicone/black shell OB defender from them - unfortunately i had to return it because the pink silicone where the home button is, kept 'popping up' wehre dust could easily get in. It was really annoying to say the least. It was AT&T branded, so idk if that may have had something to with it it fitting right even though it was for a 4S.

    Also, Laura, you mentioned trying out the candyshells but your worried about not having a SP on your homescreen -- well i always have one on my front screen AND use it with my OB defenders - its the SP's you can get from VzW 3pk. for like $10 and the teeny bit of thickness doesnt affect the funtion of the homescreen with an OB on it So maybe this will help your decision to try out the candyshells

    I can however say the Clarivue SP i applied to the back of my phone does make it a bit difficult to install the OB shell and close it SO idk if i'm going to keep the SP on the back of my phone now.

    HEY BLiNK -- i acutally did use my phone NAKED on Monday !! it definately was strange - it felt so small compared to being in a speck shell lol. But i did kinda like it maybe this will be a start to using my phone naked once in a while.....we'll see !!

    on another note - i decided not to get another cs or flip, but instead i'm waiting on the MightyVault in white/cobalt & i've even considered a Mophie juice pack plus, just to get more time out of my phone than i already do now...idk about that one right now tho - its just an idea ATM.

    I don't want to have to apply a SP to my phone though. I think it takes away from the touch function of the glass, but that's probably just me. It just seems to me that when I use one, the responsiveness of the phone is slower. Almost like it has to make sure my fingers are really touching the glass before it does anything.

    FYI whenever I'm online or out shopping and see a nice case I check on amazon for that case Usally they are alot cheaper and you get free 2 day shipping If it's a amazon prime product. and your a prime member otherwise they are 5-7 days free shipping. Either way. They are alot cheaper then buying a case out at the apple store or elsewhere

    i understand...i think its all user preferrence. I always use a SP & have never noticed a difference but i've always kept one on since the day i walked out of VzW with my new 4S, whereas one of my kids that i put one on for when they first got their 4 took it off after 3 days with the same logic as you that the touch screen just doesnt feel the same.


    On another note, for those of you that like the Element Vapor Comp/Pro line, they just came out with a Pro Skater series. Some look really nice !!

    I'm using the Phantom case by Case-mate and so far I am impressed! So much better than the Otterbox Defender I was using. I can actually slide this one in and out of my pocket easily and it's not covered in lint. I wish I could go case free but I don't trust myself enough not to drop it.

    I finally found a completely CLEAR case, no colors, no stupid designs:

    http://www.switcheasy.com/product/NUDE_iPhone4

    Just ordered it.

    Currently have a Case Mate Gelli, it's been OK, but it has stupid designs on the back, it was as close as I could find to see-thru at the time. I love the chassis of the 4S, can't wait to be able to have it protected and yet still be able to enjoy it's beauty

    well, i took the plunge today & went to BestBuy and got a Mophie Plus in the white/gray, also had a 10% coupon from BestBuy. Came home and installed my phone to it - plugged in & both are charging now. The case does add a bit of weight and a bit of length to the phone overall, but as of right now, i don't think its terrible. I'm not the type of person to be holding my phone in my hand for an hour or more - so i don't see myself getting 'tired' of the bit of extra weight/length to it. The case overall is definately classy looking on the phone. I wasnt very sure how my white 4S would've looked with the black/pink case - but maybe at some point in time i'll order that color from Mophie & see if i like it.

    So far my first impressions are that i really like the case & its very well made. i'd say its worth the money if it holds up to its extra battery power like it claims. I'll know after using it for a few days how it does. I'll keep ya posted

    really? i couldnt stand the noti-light anymore. My last month of using my bb i completely turned that sucker off !! it was driving me NUUUUUTZZZZ !! LOL

    any way, happy to hear your back happily with your iphone again -- dont forget to wine & dine it !!

    i tried the Phantom in the aqua color. I overall liked the case but there was the bottom part of silicone thats very thin along the bottom & every time i would be on the phone it would like pull down. IDEK how to explain it - but i wound up returning mine. That was thee one thing that bugged me about it that i just couldnt get past dealing with lol.

    Awesome, Pink! You will LOVE the security of the mophie's backup battery. No worries when you're out and about!!! Depending on where I go, I will either use the mophie to begin with or I will keep the CS flip on and keep the mophie in my purse and put it on when I need it.

    It looks great, too. People are always asking where I got my cool case. And when I show them that it's a battery pack, they want it even more!

    Lol Pink, I dont mind the led on the BB because I use BeBuzz and love the disco multicolour pattern. I am going to use my iPhone now until I need BBM again for work, or in bad weather if I'm walking or in the winter or any other activity when the phone may get damaged. Hell, I'll probably he it every once in a while if I get bored and want a change. I do love that keyboard and the 9900 in white is dead sexy.

    I loved my juice pack by the way. When I went to see Duran Duran in October, I used it for the 4 hour ride to Toronto, walking around, filming about an hour of video at the show, and all day the next day while out and about and the ride home. I charged it once and still had 60% when I got home. The thing is awesome.

    If you're going to keep the Mophie in your purse, why not just get something like the Zagg Sparq so that you can stick to the nice pretty case you like?

    I'm definately impressed with the appearance of it - i haven't used the battery yet, although after both my phone & mophie were charged up yesterday i used my ph till it was about 89% & just for the heck of it i switched on the Mophie and it starting charging up I shut it off obviously cuz at 89% i didnt need to top off my phone at that point lol.

    I do have a question for you tho - i have a back SP on my ph. Now, it goes into the Mophie a little snug & i tested taking it out last night and was snug as well -- Do you have a SP on the back of your phone and if not, does the back of your phone show any kind of scratch marks from taking it in and out of the Mophie? Thanks LV for any input

    Reene, i also had BeBuzz on my bb - you can imagine the pink & purple disco noti lights i had going lol. I mean, heck, wasnt that the shiz on a bb?

    So you had a M-Plus also !! Well, i'm glad to hear another users take on it. Sounds like you got a good bit of usage between your phone and the Mophie glad to hear that !!
    Btw, i like DuranDuran also, never got to see them in concert tho !!

    The funniest thing is, when i came home from BestBuy, my 2 younger teen boys saw the case - one of them were like "ooooh mom that looks so cool on your phone - i'd be all about that when i get my iphone" and my other one says, "oh our cousin has a Mophie on his iphone too!" I had no idea how i missed seeing that lol.

    I've since taken off my defender for a while and opted for my candy shell satin with an anti-glare, anti-fingerprint screen protector. I ordered one of those cases from Verizon with the kickstand built in and a pixelskin hd from Speck. Going for the minimalist look these days.

    Today my case finally gave up on me or kept getting my shirt caught in it, two times i went for my phone and it wasn't there. It had some how slipped out of the holster and under a table, not a big fall and i couldn't duplicate it. So i broke down and bought an Otter box at the VZW store, not a bad price as i get corporate discounts. I guess it will take some time to get used to the added bulk but i don't want to be making an insurance claim anytime soon.

    I am so not surprised to learn you used BeBuzz as well lol. Its indespensible when I'm on my BB so I know if I can ignore something or not.

    Yeah I got a tonne of use out of the juicepack for Duran. Incidentally I recommend seeing them if you get a chance. They are a fabulous live band. I never got to see them in the 80's ( I was 9 and mom said I was too young to go see them in Ottawa) but I've seen them twice now - once in 2005 for the reunion tour (all five originals baby!) and in October (Nick, John, Simon and Roger). So good. Instantly made me a screaming 13 year old putting Mrs Simon Lebon on my trapper keeper...

    No SP on the back of my phone. And no scratches whatsoever from the mophie! And I swap in and out of the mophie at least twice a day. The case has a smooth matte finish on the inside as well so there's no way the back can get scratched. At least, that's how it is on the black mophie plus. I think the white exterior is gloss rather than matte so maybe the interior is different than mine?
