    Not to burst your bubble, but I'm afraid that will have stain/discoloration issues after use.

    It's a terrible combination as far as I'm concerned. I'm returning my white incipio soon. It's stained in 3 days. 2 bluish black lines. 3 days. Ugh. You'll hate it soon.

    Moshi iGlaze Milk White

    I just bought a milk white Moshi iGlaze case. It's beautiful and looks similar to the Incipio, but the Apple logo shows in the back. I've used it for a few days now and it's great. If it starts to discolor, I plan to wash it with water and baking soda. That should clean it up quite nicely.

    P.S. My iPhone is black and the black phone/white case combo looks very nice.

    Yep, I have one and it did stain a bit but whatever. Better to get the case nasty looking then my phone. I liked it a lot though. I have white feather on black 3GS.

    although i have my reservations about this case staying 'clean', Im using it as well. Same one. My former case was the Air Jacket.

    It does cover the phone better than the Power Support Air Jacket. It wraps around the top and corners more than the Air Jacket did. It is manufactured in such a way that the finish wont wear off like the air jacket.

    The air jacket leaves about half the bezel exposed (top to bottom) and it worked well on my old phone, it looked sharp, but upon selling my 3g the only place it had wear was on the sides of the bezel where the air jacket went halfway up the sides and rubbed.

    The incipio seems to cover more of the phone and hold onto it tighter so it shouldnt wiggle and rub like the air jacket did.

    I have to give some credit to the air jacket though, after having it on my phone for about 6 months, the back of the phone was pristine when i went to go sell it. I feel like the incipio is one step above the air jacket. Its a minimalist case/cover. Like Air Jacket 2.0

    But i may be switching to black if this white one get to look ratty which i can almost see coming

    What are the included screen shields like that come with the incipio feather? Are they as good as the PS Crystal film? Cheers

    Clorox CleanUp

    That Clorox CleanUp spray also cleans up white cases nicely.

    After only one day of use my white Feather case has two horrible discoloured streaks running down the back of it. They appeared while the phone was left flat on top of the iPhone screen cleaning cloth and connected to the Mac doing a full restore. I'm not sure if it reacts to the increased heat output by the iPhone.

    I have a BSE skin on mine. Found the Feather at AT&T with NO LOGO on the back (just the inside) in white for $5 a pop. Works great with the skin tho I'd rather they allow for a lay on the table design just a tad.

    drop tested Incipio Feather!

    well yesterday at work I field tested drop durability of our 3GS in the Feather. I have the same case as the OP... If this mishap had happened with my Power Support Air Jacket it would have been a completely different outcome, because of the material type and wrap around of the air jacket.

    my phone was at ear level, almost 6 feet, it slipped out of my hand as I swung my head and it launched my phone straight down hitting the concrete directly on the top corner of the phone/case. Surprisingly enough, i didnt drop the call, the phone is intact and the case suffered only large gouges. When it hit the ground it flipped onto its back so i was thankful the screen didnt go sliding across the concrete slab. The phone was perpendicular to the concrete when it hit the corner, the corner took the full force of the drop.

    If it had been the air jacket i think the case would have shattered and it would have almost certinly caused more damage to the top of the phone and the bezel since the air jacket leaves that part of the phone open.

    when i took the feather off my phone to check it, i did notice that over the past 2 weeks or so there has been some rubbing of the feather onto the side bezels of the phone. nothing too significant.

    well mine is doing well so far. just took the case off and the bezel is fine. there is a slight scratch on the bit that the case doesnt cover, but its a phone that is use daily so i expect minor damage.

    so far i can complain about the case at all. still in perfect condition, perfectly white, no damage to phone and still very happy!!

    Is it just the white one you guys have had problems with? I've got a green one on my black iPhone and it's great! No problems, scratches, marks...nothing.

    I think it's just the white case which has problems with marking. 10/10 to Incipio customer service though. I emailed them about my 1 day old and marked white Feather case and they replied with the offer of a brand new free of charge black case which has now been posted to me. :)

    Same thing here, i was sent a black replacement case. As for the white one i took very fine sandpaper and went to town on it. Now it has a slightly rough texture but it will not get dirty anymore :)

    No idea, I called tech support and they said it was a batch of blank cases and they'd send me a replacement :cool:
    Hope they actually do!

    I have the white and the pink. The white gets horribly dirty FAST, and the pick one is stained slightly blue from being inside my jeans pockets.

    Also, I have used this case, and the equivalent case from Power Support (the Air Jacket) on two different phones and the bezel right under where the case lays got horrible scratches running perpendicular to the length of the phone.

    Good luck with yours...

    Never buy such causes in white , learnt my lesson from the moshi iGlaze white. It looks and feels great but well the case looks horrible after constant usage.

    My replacement black Feather arrived from Incipio today, unfortunately they have sent a damaged one :( It has a large split down one side. Hopefully they will send another. The black case is gorgeous.
