    So does anyone on here have an Ebay store where they could buy the nice purple candyshell case and the brown and pink one and sell it in their store? I really want those colours but they are exclusive to AT&T and I'm in Canada. Anyone? :)

    Yeah I tried ebay, that's why I was posting this to see if someone could add it to their store. Oh well I have that link from appleguy I'll just keep checking that site and hopefully they'll come back in stock. Those cases are so sweet. Have a Barely There on the phone right now and it's just not protective enough...I drop stuff alot so need something with a bit more padding :).

    Lol, no worries. I probably should just be patient Speck will eventually sell the other colours to everyone. Hate waiting...stupid free case isn't being mailed until September 27th!! At least I got the Barely There it'll do for now.

    Thanks again for your searching...much appreciated :)

    Edit: Good idea, I will PM him
    Update: Messaged him and he replied that he'll sell it to me but...looking at the pic of the case I think it's one of the old ones with the flash problem as it looks like someone has coloured the camera area black..or is that how the revised one looks? Anyway am having doubts after reading some of the feedback. I'd rather it came in packaging.

    The only ones I've seen in stock at AT&T have been the black ones. I've been after a purple one for a while now.

    Advice is dont buy from the SPECK website.. I bought their candyshell last year for my iphone 3G. The case was 50% off. So it was like 15$.. Now the shipping and brokerage fees alone costed me 45$..

    The case at the end cost me 60$.. I also had it shipped to Canada. Stay away as they use Fedex with brokerage fees crap.. I was really pissed and wanted the charges fixed but they said they didnt want to hear it as they are not liable for duty fees.. When in fact they were mostly brokerage fees (lazy guy sitting at fedex fee)

    Yeah but if you read my post I want the purple one :p.

    Are you sure the ones you saw were for the iPhone 4? I haven't seen any candyshells of any colour in stores. Not saying you didn't see them but if you could tell me where maybe I could at least get a black one online and put a purple skin on it.

    they're pretty much in all the stores; rogers, telephone booth, wireless wave, telus, bell...I'm 100% sure that it was for the iphone 4 because I was looking for a case for mine and that one was one of my top choices

    Ask the seller really nicely if they'll make an exception for you. I always say no intl shipping, but if the buyer has excellent feedback I usually do it. If you have low or bad feedback don't bother tho. LOL.

    I dunno, not even Amazon is selling them, they're on backorder and only the US is getting stock of them. Or maybe it's just that Alberta isn't getting any...strange though.

    Thanks for the advice. Picked one up at Fairview Mall at the Telephone Booth store. Its the old version, so I have contacted Speck support that the case camera cutout interferes with the flash and they agreed to send me a revised version once production issues are sorted out. This will do for now as I am a huge fan of the Candyshell design (had one for my 3GS).

    FYI, the new revised version actually will not be available for another 2-3 weeks still. All versions that are available now are the old ones that interfere with the flash pictures. Once they new ones are available, then you will likely have no problem with finding them.
