I hope the atlas doesn't have as many issues as the obex and lifeproof seem to be having. Wonder why these "lifeproof cases" are having so many problems especially from multiple manufacturers who have been making cases for awhile.

That's the million dollar question. I saw on twitter they said they would be sending out updates this week so we will see.

Sign up for their newsletter. Incipio states that newsletters and updates on the Atlas will begin this week.

I dont like the protection at the mute switch and other ports...seems you can easily get water inside if you accedently scrub the iphone against a wall wich makes the mute cover open. And just a oring...well that means its not ment to be reused alot of times unless they sell spare orings.

They do send out charge port and mute port covers for free with your original order. I recived 2 of each.

Well, I finally decided to send mine back. The lower right corner refused to snap in. I first thought it would just take a little time and that it would work. No go. When I opened it, to prepare the case to send back, I was surprised to see the screen with a lot of dust and particles on the screen. I really thought that this case would seal the iPhone away from all of this and it did not, at least for me.

I wanted it to work because I liked the case and I really like the holster. Haven't found another with a holster except for the Otterbox Defender and the cover on the charging port puts WAY too much pressure on the lighting connector/

I'll post more about my first reqctions to the case later tonight!

About the customer service call- the case is supposed to come with extra port covers/flaps whatever you call them but my case did not. I was on the call less than two minutes before someone answered, way better than lifeproof (i was on hold for 20 mins to just buy a case.) After just a second of explaining what happened they are shipping me the extra parts. I also realized I would love to have the holster and they let me add it on for just the price difference of the combo case instead of making me return the case and purchasing the combo or charging me $29. So far customer service has won me over from the LifeProof!
Talk about customer service, I received my extra port covers/flaps in the mail, without ever calling. Just receive something in the mail from Seidio a few days ago, opened it up, and inside were the extra pieces. No letter or anything, just those pieces. I love Seidio, and their holsters are the best in the business.

Sending my case back. Nothing wrong with my OBEX except the flimsy mute switch cover. I'm going to pick up the Otterbox Armor case to try out and hopefully the Incipio Atlas is released shortly thereafter.

The Armor case looks very solid and not as flimsy as the LifeProof and OBEX. I hope the Incipio's plastic is more rugged and solid because that's the size I want for protective everyday case.

Anyone have the white obex? I have the black, but ordered the white one from Seidio just now. I think my black one was "practice" because I had to learn how to close it so all parts snapped together properly.

I'll get the new one...then beg for a refund unless its a HUGE improvment
I'm having same issue with sound, then I switched the phone and was very surprised how bad, tunnel like, quiter sounded.
Other wise I love the case, the feel, look and not too bulky at all.

Does the sound come from the back of the case like the Lifeproof? I hope not
well, i also heard many people said they have unpleasant buying experience on Lifeproof.

Returned my obex. I really liked it, but a waterproof case that doesn't stay closed isn't waterproof. Ordered an otterbox armor. It's being shipped.

Can't hear with the case on

I got this case at the EMS Today conference in Washington. I usually use a Bluetooth but without it I can't hear the phone hardly at all. Especially if there is ambient noise. I found this a total turn off and will be returning the case. And it looks like its open on the sides?
