    So I just got mine. Not bad. The silicone is a little flimsy but my question is this: will the case always be a lint magnet or does it go away after use and breaking it in?

    I have not had a problem with lint after breaking it in. The problem I do have is it getting dirty, mine is white and blue. Loved the case till I got my 050!

    I have had mine for awhile now and for me it is a lint magnet. Not so bad that I won't use it, but is annoying for me.

    The black silicone is more of a lint magnet since it's the old style (softer and much less-firm). If you get one of the colored silicone pieces, it doesn't catch nearly as much lint.

    That must explain why I could not understand how everyone had lint problems but me. The soft parts of the case lose their firm stickiness after a few days!

    I got the gray and yellow...had to trim the silicone to make it fit properly and after only one month the yellow is now dirty...no lint issues though
