    Anyone else having this issue? After being pocketed for a little while, I have run into this issue several times wherein a corner of the phone has come loose. This is weird because it is very difficult to remove this case even when trying. The cover does not come off, but a corner will slightly pop out and need to be pushed back in. This is an issue because falling out of my pocket is probably my biggest drop risk, and if a corner pops out above the lip of the case, the case is not doing it's job.

    I will say if I can figure out how to remedy this, it is far and away the best case I have used for any iPhone. The feel in hand is great, the lip will protect from a flush fall but doesn't protrude enough to be intrusive, and it adds very little bulk to the phone.

    Why is it the best case you ever used? I see nothing spectacular about it. Mapi cases rock.

    No, I haven't had mine come loose at all. In fact, it's VERY tight...hard to get the phone out (which I did once, but took me a few minutes).

    I am very particular about shape and feel in a case, so for me this hits all the marks. Previously I would say the otter box commuter for the iPhone 4 was the king. They screwed up the sleep wake button on the ip5 commuter.

    Same! It's so strange because I can't replicate the issue with my hands so I have no idea what could possibly be happening in pocket land.

    Same thing w/ mine. It seems to loosen after a few days. I think because of its rigidity, there's no forgiveness for movement so it pops right off off that upper, right corner.
