So I bought an iPhone 4 back in March as I managed to snag a contract-free one for a good price. Anyways it was a sealed in-box one, and immediately after opening it, I peeled off the protective film and put on the Incase Slider case (Black matte version). Now mind you, I've loved Incase for their attention to design and simplicity for a long time, but I've just about had it. I've tried to take the case off, and I simply cannot. I know the rubber stripes on the inside of the case add for some sturdy friction, but this is just plain ridiculous. I've tried everything from warming it up slightly (not enough to damage internals), used a jar opener (those plastic cloths), pushing down on the phone from the only accesible parts of the top (headphone jack area and sleep botton), and trying to pry open the top of the case to widen the sides in an attempt to reduce friction. All my attempts = no success. The top part of the case wouldn't even budge. Literally. (Of course i got the bottom part off without any difficulties). Now before anything stupid happens to it, I reckon it's probably best for me to seek some professional assistance. I'm not sure if the folks at the Genius Bar would try and help, as it's a third party accessory and you never know if they'll end up damaging it accidentally. I could always claim some sort of warranty from Incase, but no way I'm sending over my entire phone intact with the case over to California. So I'm not really sure what's the best action I should take....if I should keep on trying some methods myself or refer to someone else. Btw, reasons for my need to take of the case include a desire to get some dust out of the case in between the phone and poking out from the exposed parts, removing my sim card to test in another phone, and what not.... I also want to put it into a sports armband for when I go to the gym, but to do so I need to remove it from the case. Any help is appreciated.
