    I'm pretty sure that Speck didn't change the design for the Verizon iPhone (they have changed it a couple of times with the opening for the camera/flash I believe though). Head on over to their website. They have pictures of how it fits the AT&T and Verizon versions. You'll still be able to use the switch, but it will be wedged at the very bottom of the opening. I didn't like how it looked, so I passed on one, and Speck makes my favorite cases. I think Apple was stupid in moving the switch on the Verizon phone. Whatever the reason, I'm sure they could have kept it where it was. It's a big headache for finding a case.

    I wouldn't recommend the case... Mine sheds onto my iPhone screen.

    The rubber around the display is made weirdly, it falls apart slowly and if you rub against it, little bits of it come off. My display is always covered in gunky stuff now :p

    Yes I've had that problem that's why I don't use it anymore although it could have been my favorite case if it didn't have the issues with the rubber bezel.

    I have the updated version that doesn't have the LED flash problem. So unless they have 3 or more versions of this thing, I have the latest too

    I have the regular candy shell and Flip version. The regular one does that, but the flip doesn't.

    I've had about 3 replacements for my speck candyshell cause of the flaking. The flaking makes it look horrible. I got tired of getting replacements.

    I've had the Candyshell since release day for the vzw iPhone- case is crazy durable. Only downside is the case scratches VERY easily. The entire back of my case is nothing but scratches. But the fact I accidentally dropped my phone two stories down a stairwell and it came out undamaged... I'll never own anything but a Speck.

    i just went ahead and bought a flip off amazon for 12 bucks shipped and received it today. The ringer switch doesnt line up too well since i have a vzw iphone, but it seems to be a real speck case and not a knock off, anyone know a way to tell for sure?

    Looks great but I prefer the otter box commuter in the hybrid case category!
