    So today I received my Pop! Verizon iPhone 4 case from Case-mate, and despite the packaging having a sticker that says Verizon iPhone case, it doesn't really fit a Verizon iPhone. It's a really great case and I'm thinking I may stick with it but I'm going to call their customer service first. The problem is, the ring/silent switch is not in the proper spot, and part of the switch is covered by the case. To compare, I'm posting the picture on my phone, and the picture from their website on how the Verizon iPhone case should look. It's still useable really, but I'm still slightly annoyed that I paid $30 and the case doesn't match their website.

    I agree, and this is what the packaging looks like:

    I'd email them these pictures and demand the correct case via overnight shipping.

    If it wasn't for what sounds like you got it shipped straight from case mate, I would think that someone with a at&t case swapped it for the case that was in there.

    That is clearly just a packaging mistake. They will have no problem swapping it. Do not keep that case on the iPhone.

    I ordered four cases for our family's Verizon iPhones. Only the Black/Cool Grey case was wrong. The others fit perfect. Nice balance of protection without too much bulk. Fits very tight. Casemate now list the Black/Cool Grey case as out of stock. They refunded my money and I will probably purchase later when then have them in. Take care!

    On another note, has anybody used this case? Looks interesting and they say there is no reception problem. Kinda' makes your phone a weapon too.
