    Did a search for this case and stumbled upon MobileFun.com's site (weird that its not even on Pinlo's site). I know many of you are patiently waiting for the Pinlo/Desmay style cases.

    You can sign up to be notified when its in stock... currently at 4-8 days.

    Why anyone would buy this case is beyond me. It'll rip/tear within a month and you'll regret it eventually. Trust me, I went through 3 or 4 of them myself with my iPhone 4.

    Haven't heard anything about the Slice, really. Sounds pretty bad. Thanks for the heads up. Desmay it is!

    Same here. Thanks for posting that it sucks. I'll go with the Desmay.

    Actually used one of these for an entire year then gave it to a friend after I got my iPhone 5.

    They are very well designed and fit perfectly. This case is not for people who drop their phones but for people who know that inevitably the iPhone will get light cosmetic wear.

    Will be buying another one this year.

    Trust me this guy must be a moron or something.

    I just sold my iPhone 4S, and left the case on it since it was pretty much as perfect as the day it went on.

    Yes it is fragile - its 0.3mm thick ffs, but its great at doing the job it does - protecting the back from scratches without losing the base phone look and feel.

    This was my experience too. They are super thin, so I was really careful putting it on and off, but had no problems at all.

    Yeah, I'm a real moron. Thanks.

    Look up the threads, I'm not the only one that had this thing rip and tear on them. I also had the Blade Edge bumper cases they had for the iphone 4. Loved them until they too cracked and fell apart after about a month or two of use.
