    I just got one at Best Buy Mobile and it has a horrible flash reflection. Whatever color the case is, when you take pictures with flash it will show up in the picture and overexpose it.

    Will wait until the Seidio case is out and then return it.

    Easily rectified with a dremel or file.

    I love the fit and feel of this case, so I didn't want to return it.

    Made these mods and it's fine now.

    You have to paint over the exposed plastic with a black marker or nail polish, but works fine.

    I may take some time to make it a little rounder, but I'm just not that picky.

    I have that case, issue is very minor but true.
    however the case remains to be the best fitting case i've seen yet for the iP4.(havent seen them all obviously)

    the issue is not minor. I have to fork over $30 to fix the reception issue only to find out it breaks my flash. No thanks. Also if you feel like ghetto-fabbing your ip4 then I'm afraid you are alone in the matter.

    Wow, people disagree with you and you get all snitty. You're the one that's 'alone in the matter'.

    Have this case with the invisible shield and it's just way too tight to get on. Had this same case for my 3G and loved it.

    I don't know, I think the expression "The perfect is the enemy of the good" applies here.

    Maybe because these "disagreements" are not valid? Quick to jump on the self-righteous train are we?

    I would expect that for a $30 case, one would not have to take a power tool to it in order to make it function properly. Maybe that's just me and oplix, though.

    Seewutididther ?

    No need to be a dick when somebody offers a workaround (oplix, not you).

    I'm not the one calling people names, just stating a fact about the functionality of the case. :rolleyes:

    I purchased the blue one as well and the flash is not at all usable with this case. Everything comes out blue. I'm prob. going to drop by best buy and see if they have anything else before I decide to mod it.

    Have any of you had any luck getting the invisible shield & this case to work?

    Wow I just tried this on my luxe blue case.

    Same exact thing happens with mine. Blue tinge to everything in the picture with flash.

    I agree with others on here that for $30, the case should be perfect.
    Im not sure If I will return it or not at this time, since I like the case so much.

    What would be a good comparable replacement?

    Ok, need to change my mind about this.

    I got my Steinheil Crystal screen protector, and unfortunately, with this case, it doesnt allow the screen protector to install.

    The case fits so tightly to the phone that it doesnt allow the protector to sit correctly.

    So, before I cut up the case, I am going to return it.

    Anyone know if I can return the case with just a receipt and no box?

    Im going to order the incipio feather and use the screen protector.

    These cases are junk. I don't like cases at all. Just a skin and I'm good to go.

    Well, you're a douchebag.

    1. I was trying to offer you a solution that works if by chance you couldn't take the case back. I guess a simple "thank you for the suggestion, but it's not for me" would've killed you.

    2. Drama queen....I'm not "ghetto-fabbing" my iPhone (ip4...really?), I'm ghetto-fabbing the case. And once I'm done with it, I assure you you'd be hard pressed to tell it's not factory.

    So f you and your problem...seems like with your attitude, you deserve what you get. I was just trying to be helpful.
