    Anybody in the know out there have any idea when the grip vue will be available for the new iPhone? Also what stores might carry it? I love the one on my iPad. Thanks for the info!

    Unfortunately Belkin hasn't released any dates for their cases yet.

    Still says coming soon.

    Thanks for posting this, I just ordered one off eBay too (same seller I'm guessing) -seems like a good deal! Now, if I just had the phone to slip into this nice case.... :eek:

    Hey thanks for posting the bit about it being on EBay. I love the Grip vue on my iPad, can't expect anything less for the iPhone. I looked it up on EBay and the seller says it will reach within 2-4 days, although I wonder if he means delivery in the UK.

    I am on the JR "Notify Me" list. I really hope they release the cases in time for the launch.

    I was looking at the guy selling them on ebay, but seems kinda shady to me. Look at all his negative feedback in his history.

    Also he hasn't used ebay in quite a while from the looks of it. Some guy with very little history and a lot of it negative is the first in the world to get a hold of these and start selling them? Doesn't seem right to me. Good luck with those who did purchase though. Hope it works out :)

    The Grip Vue is the only case I've seen so far that I would get over the bumper. (I want a hard case that doesn't obscure much of the phone)

    I'm curious to see how it looks.

    There is a US seller on ebay selling the Grip Vue cases here:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=220625495768

    Doesn't have much history either, but none of it is negative. It didn't list color, so I emailed them asking and this was their response:

    From this we can assume that other places will probably be getting the cases in this week as well.

    I ordered a Grip Vue for my iPad from that seller and the service was excellent. Shipping was quick.

    I made a mistake an ordered the smoke so tonight I went ahead and ordered a clear for the iPad and iPhone. I asked him to upgrade to priority shipping so I will post pics if nobody else has when I get it.

    I wouldn't hesitate ordering from that seller.

    What's the difference between the Grip Vue and the Shield Micra (both Belkin)?

    I have had my grip vue on my iPad for 3 weeks now and it still looks like the day I took it out of the box. It pretty much sits on a couch or night stand most of the time. Not exactly like I have put it through the ringer, but seems to hold up nicely. Hope that helps.

    just got my belkin grip vue for my iphone 4. i got it off an ebay seller for £10 but he has put his prices up now:rolleyes:
    it came unboxed but well packaged and appears to be the real deal with the belkin logo on the back and seems to be of identical quality compared to my ipads grip vue:D
    just need my phone to arrive on thursday now!

    Does it look sturdy like the iPad counterpart? Do you think it will protect the precious iPhone ?

    Mine failed to arrive today so I dropped the eBay seller an email, he responded quickly and said it was sent on Monday afternoon, so hopefully i'll get it tomorrow.

    And yes, I saw that his prices have shot up A LOT, I think we got them ordered just in time!

    Once you guys get this case on your iPhone 4, can you post some pictures as I am curious as to what is opened or covered. I also wonder if this will end up being like the iPad version where the first batch had a little more front screen protection. I like my first batch iPad version and want to know if I need to order one of these sooner rather then wait for them to possibly show up at the Apple Store (all local stores discontinued the iPad version, so maybe Apple has something against these types of cases).
