    I bought one today and it's a great fit, feel, and look so far. But I heard from reading past threads that this material has a tendency to peel off. Does this still happen to the ones they sell these days? Can people tell me when they got it and its current state?

    a) umm isn't this something you should have asked BEFORE buying the case

    or

    b) why did you buy the case if you indeed read all the problems ???

    That's not really what I asked but if you wanted to know, it did have raving reviews on the apple site and it's generally one of the more well accepted ones on these forums so I thought I'd give it a try not really knowing what I'm getting into. And if it doesn't turn out to be what I need, then I'll just return it in 14 days

    I have had my black matte Incase Slider for about 5 months now. I bring it to the gym, I travel with it, I kick it around the block with the kids... no I really don't do that.

    But yeah, this thing is flawless, there isn't even a scratch on it let alone peeling paint. I am amazed at the fact that there isn't a scratch, most cases scratch the same day you put them on.

    It was a problem at first with them because I did have one that peeled way back in July or so when the phone came out, but they changed something because this baby is flawless.

    A friend of mine has had the case since last August or so and it still looks good. No major problems - just the normal scuffing that you expect the case to protect the phone from.

    I got one back in January and it has peeled slightly on the corners, barely noticeable. My biggest complaint is that it does scratch the chrome bezel.

    I have this case. It is starting to peel in the middle of the back about even with the volume buttons. It is also starting to wear through on the front edges where my thumbs rest. I've only had it for 2 months.

    I still really like the case though because the rubbery texture prevents it from sliding around.

    I purchased one when it became available and returned it two days later because of the peeling issue.

    I bought another one 3 weeks ago and no sign of peeling. I think they've fixed the problem.

    i have one now and it's great but knowing that the new one might come out in a couple weeks, i might just go return it in 14 days because i'll probably sell my 3G when the new one's come out.
