Wonder if the back would safer with a clear like screen protector on it before putting into the Lifeproof case?

How did you get it so fast?

I signed up for the Lifeproof update on the first or second day and still have not seen the purchase email.
Just be patient man, I signed up as soon as they put it on the website and got the purchase email on Tuesday. It's well worth the wait IMHO.

Lifeproof just sent out emails breaking folks down into groups and listing when each group should receive their purchase email. So, they seem to be listening to their customer's frustrations. That's a good sign in my opinion. Thank God, I'm in Group A and should receive my email by 11/07. Hopefully that means the case will be in stock to ship out once I place my order.

I got the same email, group A as well.

Does that mean we can order then on 11/7?

Group B. Screw the wait. I'm happy with my Commuter.

I hope that means we should receive an email link to purchase between now and 11/07 (since the chart says "no later than"). I got my subscription confirmation email on 9/12 @ 2:27 PM (Central).

They seem to be doing this very fairly so I have to give that to them.

I'm in Group D, which means I have to wait until 11/21. I wonder if best buy will have any stock sooner? Or are they catering to the people who signed up to be notified first? Best buy's website says release date of 11/4, so I think I'm going to just order from there.

I'm sure the link for group A is not unique and people will post it.

I'm sure Lifeproof shipped the majority of the first cases to Best Buy.
You can always order from Best Buy and see if they ship the case quicker.

There is no link for the groups. The email just breaks people down into groups to inform them of when to expect their individual email links to purchase.

If I weren't in Group A, I would definitely be taking my chances with Best Buy. I'm sure Lifeproof will not want to upset a major retailer by not sending out their product for a month while waiting on individual orders to be fulfilled on their website. That's just not good business. I'm willing to bet Best Buy will definitely be getting stock before individual Lifeproof website orders are fulfilled. The question is how much stock? I'd keep an eye out for these next week in stores too. I wouldn't be surprised to see them start popping up next week in stores if the BB online site says they will be available to ship on 11/04.

I just received an email letting me know I was in group "E"
It's a good thing my chances of buying this are extremely slim to none.

Like I said I am in group A, I'm sure people will share the link to buy it.

The links will be unique, they said so in the last email.

I'll sell my group B link for a few bucks, to those who are addicted to gadgets and can't wait. :-D

I preordered on Best Buy and my expected delivery is 11/4-11/6. I hope they don't email me and tell me they don't have the available stock I've never had a Lifeproof case so I'm pretty excited about this.

This is the same reason why I might not get this case even tho I've been waiting for a while now, it sure looks to me like it could scratch the coating on the phone, even if there is no noticeable play, there is friction.

My Otterbox has a bit of play in it (why I'm getting Lifeproof) and I have noticed no damage to my iP5 coating. Only way you will get damage is if it has friction against a sharp edge. Which obviously wont happen. I think the LP case will hold it extremely well.

How tight is it to get into the case?
Does it slide into the front part easy?
Thanks.

My defender had some play as well,contacted Otterbox and they are sending me a new back cover that will fix the problem.
