Anyone who got one of those 99 cent iPhone 4 cases from Hong Kong, I think the seller is Ashopone or something like that. How long did it take to get yours?

I've ordered a few cases from Hong Kong, & they seem to come in 9-12 days. I can't complain, though. It's cheap. :D

I ordered from the same guy & it took about two weeks.

Thanks guys. I ordered a couple Hong Kong cases, and they shipped on 7/19. I'm hoping they make it before my iPhone 4 does, and it looks as if it's a toss up. My iP4 is still on backorder, also ordered on 7/19. So we'll see. thanks again.

Mine took about 9-10 days to arrive to the UK.

Really good case, better quality than I'd have expected to be honest. Will happily tide me over til I get my free PixelSkin

Most of the stuff I've ordered from Hong Kong has taken about 2 weeks, give or take, to get here. Occasionally I've been surprised and had something show up sooner, but that's fairly rare.

I ordered three and they shipped on July 2. I still haven't received them, but the seller did follow up to see if I've received them.

I live right about 40 minutes northwest of NYC, so mine will probably be about a week as well. It's been exactly one week since mine shipped, so I'll post back when I get it. Looks like the case will definitely be here before the iP4 gets off backorder at AT&T and makes it's way to my doorstep.

there are sellers located in usa who sell 99cent cases too... just check the correct box on the left side when searching for cases to indicate that you're looking for an american seller.

I can confirm that I just got my two cases from Ashopone.

Total time: 9 days. Not too shabby. They beat my iPhone 4, and that was my hope. Didn't wanna fly naked if I didn't have to.

Just got my two 99 cent cases yesterday... ordered last Tuesday, so 8 days (I'm in NC)...

They're... good enough... the fit is a bit loose... not "it's going to fall off the phone" loose but more "you can easily pull the side away if your thumb slips against it" loose... cut outs all seem fine, access to the mute switch works, only covered button (the sleep one) is easily operated.

Should do fine for protection until the free pixelskin HD shows up in 9 years or however long Apple is taking to ship em...and I sure can't argue with 99 cents delivered.

I just ordered two more cases from ebay seller ashopone.

Of the original two I got, the red bumper case is unusable. There are holes for the buttons and sleep button, but they are too tight, and down allow you to get to the buttons. You literally can't press them unless you use something to stab them like a pen cap or something.

The cheapo standard 99 cent black case i got does the trick. Though the camera/flash hole was a little off, so it created some washing out on the right side of photos. To remedy this, i tried to cut the hole a little bigger. I did the trick (no more washing out in photos), but I did quite hack job on it. I hate looking at it. lol.

So i ordered another black case, and one of those ones with the "wavey thing" on the back with the hole for the Apple logo.

Really cannot wait until my Pixelskin HD comes, but I feel I'm in for a long wait for that baby.
