    I apologize if these have been answered, I couldn't find them.


    1) Is the Candyshell sold at AT$T the latest version?

    2) How will this case hold up with daily removal of the phone to put in my gym armband?

    3) Does it taste like candy if you lick it?


    Thanks!

    2. the bottom strip can crack in the middle (it wont split to two pieces because the silicone layer, but its annoying) and i saw some candyshells that tears (teared?) in the corners.

    i think MAYBE if you put the upper part first and then push the lower part in, maybe it wont crack the strip cuz its not stretching it such as if you put the sides first.

    1. I think I've seen them at AT&T stores, but definitely Apple stores.

    2. I've taken mine off a few times, and have had no issues so far. Saw some YouTube reviews and they mentioned the bottom piece cracking, and corners tearing, so I'm super careful not to stretch the case too much. I've also heard the newer colors are more forgiving than the older contrasting color ones.

    3. Ha! Never tried, and no intention of trying.

    I have 2 Candyshells, one of the older ones and one newer. Neither have cracked and none of the corners have torn. I always put my phone in buttons-side first and then gently pop it the rest of the way in; I just try to be as careful as possible when putting it in the case and removing it because of the stress potential. Once it's on, you can bounce the thing off the wall and not worry. ;)

    1. They do.

    2. Removing it from the case daily is probably the only situation where I wouldn't recommend the candyshell. I love it, it's my fav case out of every one I've tried, I have two. But it's really hard to put in and take out. I wouldn't want to do that daily.

    3. My purple one tastes like grape! :D

    Candyshell

    I had to give up on my Candyshell. I like to dock my iPhone and the constant taking the case on and off was ridiculous. It's so hard to get the thing off.
    And the white one tastes like a candycane!

    Thanks for the replies. Even though it seems to be a bit annoying to remove I still went for it. The case looks pretty good for protection so maybe I will use my armband less.

    Now I'm selling a Marware Flexi Shell, Marware Sportgrip and Iskin Solo Black in the marketplace if anyone is interested, cheap!

    This case addiction never seems to go away.

    I plan to use this case with my best skins ever on back, or wrapsol if I change it out later.

    I got the Candyshell from Amazon for 25.00 plus 3.99 overnight shipping.

    I hope it doesn't taste like black licorice, that would be nasty.

    ;)

    If it tasted like a red twizler then I would most likely devour it.
