I just wish my case was actually shipping today like it was suppose to. I have no idea when I will be getting it now since ppl from Dec 3rd ship dates still have not gotten.

So annoyed.

That sucks. I waited a while for mine also and now looks like I'm gonna return it. Good luck mine took forever to ship.

Anyone looking to sell their Black Ops holster or trade for the transit case or suede back?

How does this case feel in the left hand? I write with my right hand, but use my phone with my left. I ask because there's a bump on the left side of the case and was wondering if it feels uneasy to use with the single left hand.

I rarely use a back pack but that's a good idea

transit case

I'm trying to see what else fits in it. It's kind of an annoying bag to keep a phone in.

So what's everybody doing about back plates? I'm kinda bored with my ebony wood back and would like something else. But it would have to be a shade of black or grey or white or something along those lines. And I don't want just a skin, I like to have the back be a bit thicker so that the edges of the sector 5 don't scratch when I put the phone down, but instead the back of the phone touches.

I'm kinda disappointed that Element hasn't started selling any parts for the cases yet. They said the Sector 5 would be modular and allow us to change out parts and stuff for other colors and accessories. Seems like we're not going to see that for awhile.

I found this site that has a nice stingray back cover, but it's $60

http://www.valentinegoods.com/category/iphone-5

And then I found this site which makes a magnetic skin for the back so you can attach your phone anywhere

http://store.magskin.com/iphone-5


Still haven't found anything that I really really like. Wish element would start selling the Black Ops back plate.

Luxeplates.com

custom plate made (I'm a huge Iron Man fan) 1 week turnaround time, these guys are really cool.



think I'll find someone local that can match the finish of the sector 5 to the backplate and spigen metal button......

no wifi issues whatsoever with the backplate on, everything works perfectly.

I'm liking that stainless back. Not too expensive for a custom one either. Now to find a cool design to use.

I wrote them because my transit case was faulty and it took them a week to respond, the woman said they were SUPER backed up

thanks, I'm going to let them do another one; here's the thing with designing your own, the larger the image you send the better the end result: i emailed them a jpeg that was 3000 by 2000 and I got what I wanted

the glow wrap is from Jared at CarboniPhones.com

Can't put my phone down even after 1 week of owning my Sector5. It really gets more and more comfortable each day. I put my LifeProof on and it just didn't feel right.
Who here has had any drops while sporting the Sector5? Just curious how the phone and bumper held up.
