Just wanted to voice my experience with this iPhone 3g case. I bought the Wave Case from the Apple Store the same time I got my iPhone 3g. I found it to be a perfect, snug fit and it felt great in the hand. Had a bit of a hard time putting it on the phone (seemed to have scratched the surface but to my surprise, it didn't). Took it on and off everyday to clean the dust away with no scratching. Since I thought the seems in between the parts were a little far apart than normal, I decided to exchange it with the same case. Put the new case on and when I took it out, I noticed a few little nicks and scratches on all sides of the chrome ring. I was heartbroken. Fortunately, the back of my white iPhone 3G remained pristine with no sign of scratches upon close observation. Unfortunately, you won't be able to tell which one is good when you purchase this otherwise great case. My suggestions: -The Griffin Wave case is still a great case and I still use it. Buy it, buy it, buy it. -Before outfitting your iPhone with this case, purchase some kind of 'removable invisible tape' and apply a layer to the chrome ring of the iPhone. Cut it so it's almost the same size as the width of the chrome. Occassionally replace the tape so it doesn't leave any permanent residue. Just my 2 centavos guys and gals.
