    Did you guys get a confirmation email? I ordered one for real, but I did not receive any.

    Update - It went straight to my junk folder. It says now "in progress".

    Same here. I hope it’s just because I had a different shipping address than my billing.
    I did another separate order earlier with the same address for both and it hasn’t been cancelled.

    Oh man, same exact situation here, with the different shipping address. I just placed another order and went ahead and had it shipped to my billing address. Fingers crossed.

    Same for me. Wanted it shipped to my work address and it was cancelled. Shipped it to my house and order came back confirmed. We’ll see.

    Mine was cancelled too, but I used the same shipping and billing. Lame.

    Mine was cancelled too, and I was also shipping to my apartment whereas my billing address is my parent’s house.

    That shouldn’t matter. That’s why there are 2 addresses. My guess is they ran out of stock.

    Newsflash, it's not the cases people were complaining about being overpriced. The phones still cost the same as before.

    This was a really good deal! I got myself the Taupe Leather case for the X and the Black Leather case for my wife’s 7 Plus (The 8 plus cases also for the 7 Plus.)

    The Chinese cases are $10-$15 and they last maybe 3 months before they turn yellow or fall apart, so I’d say paying $45 for a quality case that lasts as long as the phone is a bargain.

    But you’re free to disagree and stick with the Chinese junk.

    John Gruner: Apple is selling iPhone cases at cost!

    AT&T: 80% off and we are still making money on these same cases.

    I ordered multiple cases earlier today only to receive a follow up email about 2 hours later that mine were canceled also due to “security reasons”. I also tried to reorder using the same billing and shipping address and received an email that it went through.

    I contacted an online agent on AT&Ts website and they made sure my order was properly placed. I used matching billing/shipping address with assurance from them I could call “ecom” (they provided phone number) that I could edit my shipping address with them (billing address is parents address and shipping address is my address). I explained the situation and they said since order was already placed I couldn’t edit info but order seemed to go through. Luckily, I am able to pick up from parents house but a minor inconvenience to pay for the discount I guess. Hope this helps others.

    Yes, XS case fits the X. But not the other way around. Apples cases made for X don’t properly fit the XS. Camera is just a bit bigger on XS.

    Wow, that's a legit deal!

    I had an Apple leather case for my iPhone 6 because it was so slippery, and it was an excellent case. Snagged this one even though I don't need to use a case normally on the iPhone X because it's much more grippy, but this will come in handy on trips where I'm using the camera a lot. You get a completely secure hand hold on the phone with this case on, which helps for multiple photos.

    I would never choose Taupe, though. But for $5... eh ;)

    What you guys forgot to mention is that these AT&T sold cases will upgrade your iPhones to 6Ge, the road to 6G, ahead of those fools on slow 5G. /s

    The 'leather' is such a scam and that's all it's worth.

    It's just a plastic case with reconstituted leather (i.e. leather offcuts pulped, mixed with a glue, painted onto the plastic then textured). Over time it just falls off leaving you with a plastic case.

    I wish there were laws against calling recontstituted leather 'leather'. It's so not the same thing as a proper hide.
