    Well today my high anticipated Charcoal Incase Slider came in the mail. I've never seen a live pic of it on the net, so I was really curious to check it out. Now that I got it today, LOVE THE COLOR....

    Well it doesn't close tightly like it did on my 3G though

    But I contacted Incase, so hopefully they can send me another. Maybe it's a defect? Didn't happen with my metallic red slider that I used on the 3G version.

    I'll update this thread when I hear from Incase.

    Anyways, here are a few pics comparing look, color, and size. These 3 are in my Top 5 favorite cases made for the iPhone 3G/3G S. If Incase can send me a case that fits, it will be my full time case for sure.

    Enjoy the pics

    Hey Map1978, how come you bought the slider for your 3G S? I thought you liked the innocase so much.

    BTW, how's the fit of the innocase on the 3G S? Is the innocase so much slimmer than the slider? It doesn't like slimmer in the picture above though i've seen/read from reviews that it is.

    I'm planning to get the 32GB black iphone 3G S really soon. My first choice of case is the black innocase. Second choice is the slider. Unlike you though, i don't plan to get a lot of cases so will decide based on slimness and coolness factor.

    Nice

    I am seriously thinking the Seidio with the holster love to here your thought if any I do know I want a holster type setup everytime I get ready to buy I see another. I want good protection, but thin not little the Otter box lol and personly I love a clear back but doubt I will find that.

    i went with the drk blue Seidio, and like it alot. fits nice & snug. I reccommend leaving the clear backing on around the apple so it doesn't get scratched up...

    hey there, the innocase fits fine on the 3G S. nice tight fit. the innocase is a tad slimmer than the incase slider and believe you can feel the difference in your hand.

    you can't go wrong with either or IMO. hopefully incase has great customer service and agrees so replace my faulty slider.

    let me know what you decide on :D

    Just a FyI

    I contacted Seidio and told them I could get the case and holster $10 cheeper at Amazon but I was wishing I could get it from them and hoping there was a discount, just figured I ask I also through in I know several people thinking of going that way here. Fingers crossed!

    No I am saying Amazon is cheaper



    I just thought I try seidio too see if they might come up with a way to match, or come closer. I figured no harm no foul.

    Just to let you know, your Seidio might be fake. Check out youtube on fake innocase.

    Yeah, i saw that video in youtube too. Just search it there. The real innocase should have "IPH3G". All capital letters. I bought the same fake innocase from ebayer "htoco" from Hong Kong. He did give me a refund when I discovered the item he sold was fake.

    I've always gone naked with just a BG or IS on.... I broke down and picked up an Incase slider and even though I'd rather have it naked I am very pleased with it.

    I use the Incase slider with the Seidio Holster works fantastic for me. Although i am thinking of going naked and using a clear coat. The case is great but after a while it has the big feeling, but the phone is actually quite small.

    Wow, didn't know the incase slider fits the seidio holster. I thought the seidio was suppose to be a lot thinner than the slider. Why didn't u use the seidio innocase instead?

    Doesn't the iphone face hit the top clip that fastens the phone to the holster?

    I purchased the Incase slider first. Then i realized i wanted a holster, so i though i would give the Seidio a try and it worked well.

    I've had 2 charcoal sliders and both didn't close tightly. Check my pic from the original post. I bought the brand new sliders just released and they fit perfect.

    Newby needs advise and suggestions.

    So I should order the Innocase Holseter for the cased iphone right?
    I got the incase black slider and I love it so far, I just need a way to carry it on my hip at work, when I'm off my pocket is fine. I may get the innocase holster and case but I already spent the $34 on the incase. I had one before on my storm and curve the only thing im scared of is that the innocase scratched the bezel a little but I don't know if that occurs on the iphone. Ive only had it 4 days so any advise or clarification anyone can give me would be truly appreciated from anyone. Let me know.
