    I got 3 color set (you can mix and match) in the mail so I applied the orange one as a test. I'll probably get tired of the color and put white one at some point, but it looks quite alright. Installation was easy and cut was very precise. It's $9.99 shipped for three colors.

    Ohh glad to see someone had a review I just ordered mine today!!! I plan on getting this and pairing it with the ivyskin reception case. How was installation? How long and how did they ship them?

    It took about 10 days to get here. But I don't know if they actually had the wraps in stock when I ordered so I can imagine the turnaround is quicker by now.

    The installation was pretty easy. Very precise cut. I ordered matte black, white, and orange. You can choose to buy duplicate colors as well. White was also matte finish and orange was glossy.

    It's thin so I see no problem fitting TPU type cases over it.

    do they seem to be reusable?

    that is to say, if you switch to white from orange, does it look like you'll be able to later switch back to orange?

    for $9.99 and you get 3 (different colors)
    it's a very good darn deal.

    I'm really digging the lime green, looks very retro-ish looking
    the red, and also the matte black.

    I'll have a review up soon on my YouTube.

    I'll keep you guys posted.

    I'm loving the orange and carbon fiber btw. :)

    Do you think it's safe to use a credit card instead of paypal? right now i can't use paypal due to a scammer's dispute with a lot of money on the line.

    I really would love to get a few of these.

    Yep, that's it.

    I don't want to try it myself, but I'm doubtful it can. It's made of vinyl and I don't think you can remove it without stretching out the material. That said, for $3.33 a pop (Note: gotta buy 3 at once), I don't mind ordering more if I want to come back to previous color.


    You know, I gotta say, orange is kinda growing in my.

    Very nice. Does it improve the antenna issues, assuming you've experienced them?

    Do you fear it will leave residue on the antenna when/if you remove it?

    Can't tell, but it can't be too bad anyhow. It's flat metal surface. I bet it's quite easy and clean though.

    General trick to remove remaining residue: rub with the tape/sticker you just removed. The adhesive on the tape grabs the residue on the product side and remove it without scratching the surface.

    Thanks for the response. With the bezel wrap on, do you have no signal degradation or is it just less than it was without the wrap?

    Well the problem is that I've never had the problem in the first place. I'm left handed but haven't notice any signal level drop. I've had either bumper or side protector from SGP prior to using this wrap. And I rarely use voice call and when I do, I often use BT headsets. That makes my Bare-phone "death grip" use to be only one time right I after I purchased the phone and local news paper interviewed and asked me to try the "wrong" holding. That didn't drop bars at all maybe because I was in good reception area to start with.

    So I can't really answer you question, but I can at least say that I'm not experiencing any problem although this wrap is much thinner than Bumper or SGP protector.

    Hey Coelacanth,

    I'm just wondering, did you receive an email from the company informing you that the wraps had shipped? I ordered these last week but still haven't heard anything from the company about them shipping. I only received an email confirming my payment.

    Your phone looks great BTW

    Thanks,
