Shipping is free (via USPS first class) unless you choose to use Priority or faster, and I didn't get charged any taxes so the final cost was the list price ($59.95)

If you are in CA then add taxes to it. $65.20 should be your final bill.
What gripes me is the shipping wait. so far, I hear 3 to 6 weeks.

How tight does this case fit the phone? Id be worried about any play which would allow debris to scratch the phone.

It's still $67 with the back plate. And without the backplate, it seems to have no greater value than the Apple bumper.

I don't know, it's pretty. But I'm not sold on it.

No, it's included. It's only $7 per additional/extra backplate.

Per their site:

"Removable back plate (INCLUDED with purchase) gives you the option of having minimalist style or full protection"

According to video reviews on youtube, it's extremely snug.

As nutritious mentioned, a backplate is included (matching the color you choose for the "bumper"). If you want to buy an extra backplate or a different colored backplate, it's an additional $7. So for $60 (+ tax if you're in CA I guess) you get the "bumper" and the optional backplate. Still a bit steep but I sprung for it because it's among the most unique (and stylish) iPhone cases that I've come across that meets my specifications.

It's snug as it should be. No play whatsoever.

How long have you use this case for? I am thinking about it but really worried about messing up the band on the iPhone.

and two more questions.

1. Does it work with front and back skins? Mine are power support
2. Does it cover the plastic band around the front of the phone?

Thanks for taking the time to answer!

Haven't used it but it will be compatible since it has one large cutout for the volume rocker and mute switch. 4s/4(GSM or CDMA) are all good to go.

Would it be possible for Larry, or anyone for that matter to post photos of the white graft bumper on a white phone WITHOUT the backplate? I'd like to see photos of it. Appreciate it!

All this information is listed right on their site. It works with the 4/4S for both carriers.

I just ordered this in white for my white 4S, but I'm a little concerned with how dirty it will get. One of the sales reps said nailpolish remover works well for removing stains, so FYI to those getting a white case as well.

I'll try but I can only show the back by replacing the back plate of my black iPhone

I just ordered the white/matte combo for my white 4s. Can anyone confirm that the headphone port is big enough for oversized/third party headphones?

Ordered the black / matte for my white iPhone 4S, can't wait to receive it, looks like an awesome case. Hope they can get those ship times down!

I just ordered a white matte version to use when I order my white 4S next month! This case is STUNNING! If you compare the price to the white Vapor Pro, it's quite the bargain really.

Yeah, it's definitely one of the sexiest cases out there. I talked to them about the shipping times and they said they said they are a new company, didn't expect such a high demand, ran out of stock, and are in the process of manufacturing new cases now. They'll ship as soon as they receive them.

I got the white / matte case but going to have it changed to the black / matte case... think it looks better with the white iPhone.

Yes, I certainly agree. The white iPhone and white bumper is a little to feminine for me, but I love the contrast of the white phone and the black bumper.

Not at all. This isn't an aluminum case/bumper.

No, it will not fit anything other than slim plugs.

Thanks.

Just received an email from Graft Concepts. Apparently the next shipment is expected on the 18th and will ship out immediately.
