    FWIW I ordered a couple of revo clips on Saturday and they shipped on Monday. Unfortunately iSkin didn't answer my email before they shipped, nor did they answer the second email I submitted thru their website. It appears that several iPhone/iPod accessory vendors have communication issues.

    Iskin is based in Toronto, Canada. For me the shipping took 1 day because I was 15 minutes away from them:)

    My order has not arrived yet. I received an email shipping confirmation w/ tracking number from them on Monday. I finally received an email reply today requesting that I use their web form instead of their contact email that was listed in my Paypal receipt. :rolleyes:

    The iSkin tracking page refuses to work correctly, and I have tried it several times over the past couple of days. You enter your email, click submit, and nothing happens.

    I doubt that it will arrive tomorrow since UPS tracking shows Scheduled Delivery: 10/07/2008

    I'd recommend that you use the contact form on iSkin's website.

    Yeah I already wrote them but they haven't written back.

    I'm gonna wait until tomorrow and if they don't answer I'll just have to write them again. I wish they had a phone number of something!

    I think the reason why your order I taking long is because you paid with paypal. I read something that had to do with that in the terms and conditions. I'm not sure though.

    Disappointed

    I received my iSkin Solo Black yesterday and I must admit that I was optimistic about the case being really nice, but as nice as it was, it was also very cheap in the way it looks. There was a stain on the back of the case, the case marks up with smudges really easily and had extra plastic (flashing) where it was popped out of the mold. I thought from a company I thought was large, this was completely unacceptable. I ended up going to the Apple Store and picking up the new Incase Slider in gunmetal color and I am completely satisfied! No looking back anymore. Goodbye iSkin! :p

    I am sending it back today with an RMA. I just thought upon receiving it, that it looks cheaper in person than on the site. Maybe I just got a bad one or something. I am interested to know how yours is when you receive it.

    My order shipped out in less than 2 business days after the order was placed. The Paypal issue that you're referring to is payment by Paypal eCheck (which I did not use).

    I am at the mercy of UPS at this point, and it's not uncommon for shipping to take 5+ days from Canada to TX.

    How does it look overall? I had dull spots on the plastic near the cutouts for the silent switch and the headphone jack. Also, is your headphone jack centered? Mine was not, although the headphones fit properly, it just was off center.

    I am glad you like it though.

    Yup, this was one of the reasons mine went back to iSkin. It was a little problem, however, if the back of the case did not have a stain on it, I may have actually kept it regardless. I am just happy I ended up trying the Incase Slider that day and now, I will never go back to anything else.

    I'd like to try this case, I have a Marware-Flexishell of the same material and really like it. I have a new black Neo that I would trade for a black Solo if someone is interested.

    I think I prefer this material to the hard plastic type cases.

    What is the material like over the volume rocker on the Iskin solo? Is it the same thickness as the rest of the case?

    On my marware flexishell the volume area is cut out, but if they put the same type of plastic over the volume it would be too hard to press. So I am assuming the Solo uses a softer rubber.
