    I couldn't hear what you were saying with the background music that loud.

    Didn't sound loud during editing, so not sure what really happened. I took out the music and I am reuploading it now

    I have one on order. It is just like the Imcase perforated snap case I had for my 3GS.

    Looks like a nice case for cheap..... I just put in an order for 4, but it didn't give me any shipping costs... no internation shipping or something? I dunno.

    That case is the absolute pits! While I appreciate the review (thanks, OP), if you keep your phone in your pocket, those holes are going to fill up with dust and bits of grime in your pocket, and then when you try to take the case off, you're going to find one heck of a load of scratches on the bezel and glass.

    I'll pass.

    I was just going to post that based on my experience with the Incase Preforated. :). It's a good looking case but you are right, taking it off my 3GS presented me with a filthy back plastic. I can imagine how it would affect the "softer" back glass of the iphone 4.

    Hmm, never really thought of that, I tested it for a couple days with the red one. Dust did get between the holes, but I have a back protector on mine, so thats i didn't notice scratching or anything. But for the price they're not bad at all. especially when most of the other cases at the price point are silicone or tpu

    I am rocking this case with sgp shield and I like it much better than the bumper. A lot of my co workers asked me where I got it from. I think for the price it ain't bad at all provided you have some sort of shield on your device.

    I bought a Default Case and...

    when i received it and first put it on a small hair line fracture appeared...i called default case and spoke with Ryan Pamplin who was outstanding. He gave me a new case for free and told me to keep the broken one until it was unusable, the new one will be shipped ASAP and along with it i was allowed to choose any color case from any style and he would send me that too for the "inconvenience". So lets go over this.. $3.99 + $0.01 = $4.00 + 2 free cases... so that would be 2 free cases and an outstanding customer service system for 4$

    Default Case is well worth your $4, Call them with any suggestions about default case ( color, design flaw, complaint) They were happy to help

    UNLIKE :apple: xD

    I absolutely love these cases. My green one started to have a small crack near the camera and after emailing Default Case, they're doing the same for me also - sending a replacement and another color of my choice. The other two cases I got originally haven't cracked at all. As far as the dust and such, I don't roll around in the dirt with my phone, so the whole perforated deal isn't a problem. I checked it after a week with the case on and it wasn't bad at all. No scratches, just a little bit of dust that only took a quick wipe to clean. IMO, these are completely worth $4 each! :D

    I just got my green and white DefaultCases today. I also have a TPU case and Belkin's clear shield Micra. I have to say, these are now my favorite cases. They're pretty thick, but the holes help with keeping the weight down. They're very soft. I'm sure that they provide good drop protection. The front of the phone is protected - the edges stick out more than on my Belkin. Overall, a good case for $4.

    Why do people who post these reviews never take pictures with the camera? I mean what is the point of having a phone camera with flash if all the pictures are washed out?

    I usually put up pictures in the review if it does interfere, In my experience it didn't, so I didn't mention it

    Didn't interfere with mine, either. I tried both the white and green cases - none of them showed coloration from the case or washing out, unlike with my TPU case.

    Interference is subjective. I still believe in seeing for my own eyes. I would be grateful if you could show pics or video with and without the case. I have read numerous case threads where people have said it does not affect flash and then half people saying it does.

    I have a few colors and I need to warn you about that pink color because it is actually purple.

    The letter I received with mine explained the issue with the pink cases. Apparently, it's a QA issue, and all of the people that ordered the pink case will get another case that's actually pink.

    Why even send it out then? Or let alone have it up for sale when they know they actually don't have pink cases?

    And compared to my Elago S4, the DefaultCase is a bit bulkier.

    Yup. Great Throw-Away Cases for sure. Though Personally I prefer something that prefers full protection. So I don't use them so much. I prefer the NGP or Tough Case I have
