    Has anyone had the inside of an Incase Slider scratch up the back of there iphone. I bought one last week from the apple store, and since i've had it in the slider, i have noticed multiple scratches on the back. The phone was completely flawless before using this case? i'm definitely returning the case , do you think they will do anything about the phone?

    Yes, the case would leave marks on my iPhone but a simple wipe could get them off.

    Try the switcheasy rebel 3G.
    I've had numerous cases.
    By far my favorite.

    I have one of the switcheasy rebel casess for my iPhone and my wife has one for her iPhone. They are both the arctic cases. I just bought the five pack of the rebel essentials acouple of days ago to have variety in it. I am very pleased with this case. I would recomend this case to anyone.

    I was going to give it another shot but gave up on it today. I returned it and picked up a different case and it's quite to my liking.

    I have one and it never scratched it. Do you have a body shield on it or something? Or do you keep taking it off? And does it really matter if it scratches it you cant see it with the case on.

    Scratch free case

    All these hard cases will eventually scratch up your iPhone. Just get the Neo. It will not scratch your iPhone. Even if you leave it on for a month or two with no cleaning.

    Bought a plastic case...forgot the name of the thing...my girlfriend bought me it without her knowing that I'm very picky about cases for my devices, so I used it for a few days trying to like it but nothing...so I told her I couldn't use it anymore... so then I bought a Invisible Shield and liked it at first and since I have a white iPhone, all the dirt and stuff showed up a few weeks later around the edges of the thing and the clear plastic got discolored... so i took it off and went naked till i got it replaced for a rattle.

    Then I bought a silicone berklin case that works really well when im at work, then I take it off when I get home. Though the edges of the thing is peeling away so instead of it being black, it's clear... oh well

    I had the black Incase slider and it did in fact leave a few scratches on the back of my iPhone. I solved the problem by applying some clear tape to the inside of the case so that the tiny imperfections in the plastic wouldn't rub against the phone. It's unfortunate that the case does that, but I believe that nearly all cases will leave scratches on the back of an iPhone, either by trapping dust or by scratching with small imperfections in the surface of the plastic. However, I think that the Incase slider is probably the best iPhone case as far as its overall design. It has held up very well for several months and still looks brand new.

    Just bought a slider today, I will have to try the clear tape idea when it comes in.

    That may work, but your chrome bezel will get screwed up also.

    That's why I put a few strips of scotch tape along the bezel.
