    This case is awesome and they finally added a much needed lanyard attachment point on the bottom left of the case near the headphone port.
    Will post more pics soon and a full run down of the product after my 1 hr water test.

    When did you receive your email allowing you to place an order? Of course I'm assuming you purchased through their website.

    Woah, didn't know this was going out just yet. Pics pics pics. Need to see how thick this thing will be. iPhone 5 is so nice when kept thin that I have returned all bulkier cases and am trying to stay as thin as possible this time. Plus now that I got into the glass screen shield craze, I don't know if I can go this way, but I still want to see it.

    Excited for pics! I got my email but figured I would wait for reviews to place an order.

    does it still have the open/close 50 times or whatever limit?

    Or, can this limitation be remedied by buying O-ring replacements from their site?

    Did you order from BB or directly from them (when did you receive the e-mail?)

    Great to see you got it!

    Can you let us know how the screen feels? Is there a weird space between the case screen and the phone like on the previous model?

    Got my email on Tuesday to order, had it 2 day delivered cause I couldn't wait. Did it all on the LifeProof website.
    The screen feels awesome better than the 4/4s case did and the sound kicks major bootay! The mute toggle makes a clicking noise now so you know when it clicks on and off.
    There's no limit to how many times you can open the case, just have to do routine maintenance on it when using it in water. Looking at the earpiece section it looks like they took out the gortex.
    Best part of the case is that it now has a place to attach a lanyard.
    Overall this case gets an A+++ shows that the company is really listening to their customers.

    Any other cases you can compare this one to in regards to thickness. Really appreciate it.

    What's the screen like? Is there a gap? Sensitivity reduced much?

    Thanks.

    I'm also curious about this. Pillow effect? Rainbow effect?

    Here's some pics of it next to a cheap ebay bumper style case to see the difference in length and width.

    Can you expand a bit more on this? Is it different than the previous iPhone case?

    No the previous case also was changed to unlimited as stated by the CEO. You just have to inspect the seals everytime you open it.

    Cool, thanks.

    How's the voice transmission on both ends for this iteration?

    Another thing I noticed is that the headphone bung is recessed so the case looks sleeker, only difficulty is unscrewing it with the pad of a finger.

    Can you please take a few pics side by side with the iphone? I want to see how much bulk it adds since I use my phone on a carrying pouch...Thanks
