I used a Griffin Wave with a 1st gen iphone and it was excellent. Lots of protection and close fitting. Looked really cool as well.

martin308: www.bestskinsever.com, I got one of these. Definetly recommend it, easy to put on and can barely see that its there, I have to tell most people there is anything on it


Just ordered myself one of the 1 Piece and one of the 2 Piece, Just in case one doesn't work out.




Cheers

I've just ordered the 1 piece version of the full body skin. A little intrigued by the application method - hope that none of the water finds its way in to any crevice of the iPhone!!

Its a little worrying but as long as its turned off its all good.

Just remember it may look a little crap when you first put it on but wait the 24-48 hours before you rip it off as it improves alot over time.

I got the invisible skin for it they its only .2 of a millimetre thick and made from the same material as helicopter wing tips.  What a sales line but it worked on me and seem to be working fine with no pocket scratches.  I also have a leather pouch as its a lot smaller than all the leather cases out there and about quarter the price.  There is nothing worse than some big clunky case around your beautiful slim iPhone. This gives me the best of both, leather pouch to protect from drops and the likes and an invisible skin so it looks like an ordinary iPhone when i am using it with nothing getting in the way.  Together cost me $35 delivered to my door from trademe.

I'm planning on ordering an Incipio ORION Sleeve online if I can't find any shops that sell them here. Does anyone know if you can buy them anywhere in Auckland? I've also ordered a fullbodyfilms.com protection pack.

I've just ordered mine. That seems like a really long time given they are charging US$20 for postage and handling. Do they update the status from "Paid-Recent" as your order progresses? I'm hoping that if they don't they give you a tracking number when it ships to you can follow its progress.

sonex: Man i bought that case from the US site last Saturday and it still hasn't arrived :/



When I ordered mine off the site I got a confirmation email that indicated that deliveries outside of the US are expected to take between 7 and 10 business days - you've only been waiting for 5...

ok i finally got this thing today and quite frankly it is the most terrible thing i ever bought.

i opened it up and thought, ok people online seem to have so much trouble putting this on but I;ll go extra slow and get it right the first time round. I spent the past hour in a steamy bathroom trying to put thin piece of **** on with no air bubbles but theres just no possible way to get it done 100% right..
im moving on to a silicon case or something similar because this sticky plastic sheet thing is absolute crap
