    I guess there's nothing I can do, huh? I now have a deep scratch down the side of my iPhone and a bubble looking thing on he back of my iPhone after I removed my Griffin Elan case just now. Who do I take this issue up with? Griffin or Apple? I guess there's no point in a case now.

    Well, a case will offer protection if you drop the phone. I think that's plenty reason.

    Yes, but what will I protect now? With a scratch all the way down the back, there's really no point now.

    If the phone functions what is the big deal? It's on the back, you should stare at the screen not the back. I know it sucks that your case did this but not much you can do...enjoy the phone and don't worry about a scratch.

    Yep, it sucks that many of the cases out there seem to be damaging the item they are designed to protect. :mad: I think the idea with most of these cases is that they will protect the phone from catastrophic damage in case of a drop. At least that is what I am hoping. Since mine is pretty much living in a case I don't really care about some scratches I will never see. Might be a problem if I ever decide to sell it though.

    The case didn't do it. The crap you let get inside of it did. :D

    Yes it was the Elan form case. There wasn't crap inside the case, as it shows on the case where it was scratched as well where it grinded against the phone.

    Oh well.

    You have the black or white? Maybe you can use that iPod restore stuff from Marware? I think thats the company that made those....
