    Ok, So I bought a GeoMetric (older Version), obviously it had some flash issues. So I contacted them and they said They're sending me a replacement with the NEW camera cutout. The Package came in today, and I took it out. Guess What? Still has the old cutout...

    Brilliant Job Speck!

    On a More positive note, they did send me a free pack of shieldviews

    Same thing happened to me, only the company was Incipio. I sent them a photo of the defective case they sent me and they sent me a new one. This time they got it right :)

    Try, try again?

    Nope, its a bit strange, everytime I contact them, they send me a pack of em. I've got 3 now...

    All I wanted was a revised GeoMetric and I haven't gotten it... This Sucks, I love the Case, but I use my Camera Flash a TON.

    Also Has anyone else noticed that the Revised Reveal/Etch Doesn't fix the issue either?

    That's nothing. I originally ordered the Fitted from the free case program (had the older cutout)

    They sent me another Fitted (ALSO had older cutout)

    Then they sent me a GeoMetric (ALSO has the older cutout)

    Now, they're sending me a CandyShell case to make up for it. I seriously doubt that they new case will have the newer cutout but hopefully it will. Sick on contracting them about so many times over a simple case :rolleyes:

    speck still hasn't shipped the revised candyshell after I had talked to customer service over two weeks ago. I'm really disappointed with the quality of specks iPhone 4 cases...first my pixelskin stretched out beyond use and now my candyshell has a major flash flaw and scratches/peels like crazy. lame job speck! i'm usually very satisfied :mad:

    I don't abuse my case/phone at all...the hairline scratches began showing up within the first day of use. it looks really tacky and worn now (only 2 months old)

    Mine looks worse than yours. They are sending me a white version now. Scratches won't show up as much I was told.

    I'm seriously looking at Switch Easy Reptile in green. The design seems superior than the CandyShell and no scratches will show. Just not totally sold on the Reptile just yet. That look is funky but I like the actual design.

    Holy crap. That looks bad. That's what happened to my Candyshell for my iPhone 3GS after just a couple of days, so I just stay away from Candyshells altogether.

    my new candyshell just arrived today however I'll be switching back to an incase slider, I'm just not satisfied with the scratchability of this case.

    glad they're taking care of you as well!

    Yay!

    Hooray for Speck. They finally got my case right for a change. Originally got;

    1. Fitted (Dark Tartan)
    2. Fitted (B/W Plaid)
    3. GeoMetric

    All of them were older stock apparently since they all had the keyhole cutout for the rear camera.

    They finally sent me a Candyshell (w/oval cutout) as well as a pack of their screen protectors :D

    Although this whole process took about 2 months, I finally got my free case(s) so I can finally give this a rest.

    if you wait a bit, switcheasy will be releasing their other models for the iPhone 4, which are much better looking and offer similar designs to the reptile. at least i assume so. they have for every other iPhone/iPod touch.
