    These look nice, I would prefer this over my stick-on Trunket. But I would like something darker, black even, like the Jet Black Trunket.

    That's gorgeous! I wonder if it would be possible to have a real wood front?

    I hadn't realised the company was based in Texas. Funny as I'm also waiting on a Saddleback leather sleeve for my iPhone, another company based in Texas.

    Maybe I should get me a confederacy flag.

    Sure, you might have a hard time using the screen but I'm sure it could be replaced with wood.


    Why? You want to be labeled a racist?

    LOL! I meant just the white/black part of the phone! Could a screen be built into a wood frame?

    LoL, I know what you mean I was just being an ass. I doubt you could do that because the front glass and digitizer are glued I believe. I guess if you could just get the LCD it could be done. Way more work than it's worth probably.

    Well I am officially disappointed with Monolith's customer service. Ordered on May 4 and received confirmation that it would take a week to a week-and-a-half to post. An email from me after a week asking for an estimate of shipping time got no reply. An email after 10 days got no reply and a further email yesterday got no reply.
    I emailed lucky labs with a shipping enquiry about some decal wraps and got a response 5 hours later.
    Not good.

    That kind of sucks. I only emailed them once, but heard back right away. But I'm glad you let us know. Maybe if they won't respond to email post on there Facebook page.

    Got a response 10 minutes after posting on Facebook. They're posting the back today.

    I was emailed that it would be sooner but the site advises 1-2 weeks and this is just within that.

    Looking forward to getting it now.

    Glad to hear the issue is hopefully resolved. Let us know what you think of it, I still want one myself.

    That's pretty sweet, it took me a minute looking at the pictures that it's actually a full replacement back. At first I thought it was just some sort of overlay. Not sure if I'd want to spend $55 for it though

    BTW - I take by some of your spelling and using the word "post" that you're not from America. I guess that explains your association of Texas with the confederate flag (which I would think most people would more quickly associate with some other true "deep south" state) :confused:

    I don't like that the edges are still black. Looks tacky, like a textured sticker

    I was waiting for your review, but today the Wenge went for sale on the site, so I ordered one. I still want to know what you think when you get yours though.

    Hopefully you get it soon then. I hope mine is quicker than the 1-2 weeks it says on the site. I'm very impatient.

    Arrived on Friday. Love it. Will post up pics as soon as I can. Trying to buy a house which my wife thinks is more important than posing up pictures of a wooden iPhone back.

    That DOES look sharp. I wish though they had a white birch color for the white phone. I just do not think that would look right on a white iPhone 4s.

    Edit: oops. I should have shopped the page. I see they have a maple that looks like it MIGHT go good with a white phone. Still I wish they'd consider a white birch bark color.
