    I think this thread needs to be moved to the iPhone Accessories forum.

    Lol, that's okay. That is expensive for a case though...

    Looks like an over embellished Jett case. Sadly, I know this case will most likely degrade signal. That said, if this case ever drops to around $50, I'll buy it. :D

    $300 case with the same cheap plastic connectors holding the frame together.

    That case looks great, well the original Jett did but the 2 that I got were both broken in the box before they even reached me.

    Why would they sell a heavier case harder to penetrate signal for 3 times the price. Non capisco, cos stupido

    For the price of $300, it has to have these features:

    •Titanium that is virtually unbreakable and un-scratch-able
    •Protects your phone from drops and slams (will leave iPhone looking like new from 1000-2000 foot drops or throws)
    •No reception issues, AT ALL. Period.

    That's all, have a nice day!

    I like the look of it, but no way I'd pay anywhere close to $300 for a case.

    Serious? Come on now. It doesn't even have a fancy look like the Vapor or other cases. It literally is just a metal bumper.

    Exactly my thoughts as well!

    I liked the Jett case, except for the very cheap plastic parts used to hold the case together

    Like the glass being made of helicopter windshield glass, I heard the reason this case is so expensive because it's made out of the materials from the rest of the helicopter lol

    Pretty funny , you're kidding right? 1000 - 2000 foot drops? yeah maybe on snow. Your phone will get crushed from a 20 ' drop though the case may be fine.

    No reception issues? Titanium is worse than aluminum.

    And fyi, titanium is heavier than aluminum. You just need less of it to do the same job as aluminum hence why its lighter.

    That is a ridiculous price for a case, it better do a lot more then just protect the phone for $300 lol.

    This case will offer very little drop protection to your phone as the stresses are transferred straight into the phone...
