    I really like it...it fits very well...nice and tight and doesn't allow a lot of dust to creep in. I have dropped it several times with no issues. The case does not pop open. I think that there is a pretty long thread on this case with way more info.

    I also purchsed it and it fits fantastic. I agree with xtgirl, very little dust gets underneath it. It fits so tight that you have to be careful when putting it on as it will scratch/ding the back of the iPhone.

    In my case though, I used it a couple of times and now have decided to go case-free. If your really looking to buy it, private message me back I'll sell you mine for half price!

    Yes, this is a very nice case. Fits very well. Two versions, one completely clear, the other with rubberised sides.

    Contour Showcase cracked my iPhone glass

    Stay away from this case unless you like going to the Apple store to get a replacement phone! See pictures on flickr: http://flickr.com/photos/23514072@N07/?saved=1

    Still no effort from Contour to refund my money or pull the case from the market. You have to wedge your phone in so tight and there is hard plastic against your touch screen glass. It won't take much for this case to smash your precious new iPhone.

    I've had this case before I had the iPhone. When I knew that I was getting the iPhone I decided to get this case beforehand because this is the only case that I've used with my iPods. I love Contour's design. The only thing that I dislike is the fact that dust tends to get under the case and stick to the phone. I'd have to pull it out and wipe it down then place it back in.

    I've dropped the phone so many times and still there's no problem after the fall. I highly recommend the case and also a screen protector.

    What happened? Did you step on it with the case? Did you put any pressure to your iPhone (like inside your pocket)? Its strange cracked.

    I'm planning to buy this case too.

    I had it for a few days. IMHO, it is WAY too tight on the bottom of the phone. I swear I just about cracked the glass on my phone trying to get it out. I also found the clip to not be very secure. If you happen to catch the phone on the edge of something, it's coming out. I now use a Seidio case and it is awesome.

    The pics on Flickr says it all. I too loved the Contour cases for my iPod. I've owned two for my respective 3g and 4g iPods. I was blindly brand loyal to Contour and bought this at MacWorld before I bought the phone. I didn't apply any pressure to that spot. I didn't drop it. As Zeos said, the case has a snug fit in that area that is hard plastic to glass. The most disappointing is that the company has not sent me instructions on how to get my refund for a very defective product. I now have an Agent 18 case which does not have any obstruction on the iPhone glass.

    Stay away from this case!!!

    I believed you. I checked my Crystal Jacket set case, know what It has a marking on the same spot. And they have the same obstruction on the glass (design). So, I went to apple store and bought the Clear Agent 18. Good thing the holster from Crystal Jacket fit the Agent 18. So, stay away from Crystal Jacket Set too.
