    I just got mine today for the iPhone 4 and just in case anyone is wondering, here are the important things:

    1. It is compatible with oversized headphone jacks. I use the Ultimate Ears UE11Pro in-ear monitors and they have an L jack. It fits fine if you press firmly, and it does not pop out.

    2. The dock connector opening is large enough for non-Apple cables, car chargers, etc.

    3. The camera opening is plenty big enough to ensure no interference with the LED flash. I assume this would be true with all colors but it is definitely true with the Viola.

    4. It fixes the reception problem too (if you believe there is one!)

    I'd say it's a decent value for the price and solves most of my problems with the Bumper (headphone jack, dock connector opening, back coverage).
    You gotta like Silicone though! As far as Silicone goes, this is soft and smooth-feeling. And the color purple looks surprisingly good on the black phone.

    Looks like this is one of the few cases that actually works with the camera!

    Colors was a great, simple case for the 3G/3GS. I'll definitely be picking up another for my wife's phone, haven't decided if I want to cover up my upcoming white iP4, or just stick with the bumper I already have.

    The orange one looks fantastic. I'm fancying the yellow one too, but I don't know if I'd actually use it. Thanks guys

    It's not really yellow, it is more a lighter ton of Orange. My wife has it on her 3GS.

    Has anyone had a white version of this case before? Does it get really, really dirty? Because it looks sexy as ****.

    I had a white CapsuleRebel for my 3GS and it developed a yellowish tinge to it no matter how had I tried to keep it clean.

    Ahh, I see. I guess my monitor isn't calibrated correctly for best color then. Would you say the saffron is true Crayola orange? Or does it have a lot of red in it?

    I'd do a white case too, but there's just no way to keep it clean.

    The Saffron is more like a Burnt Orange where the Mican is more like a Yellow Orange.

    How long did it take to develop and how noticeable was it? Because this case is extremely sexy.

    I just ordered the purple. :)
    I think these cases offer great protection and they feel so nice.
    I had white on my 3G. It doesn't look yellow. It's 2 years old. It wasn't my primary case though. It does have a few pink stains on it though.

    fupresti...

    Thanks for the pics! I ordered that one as well :D

    If you don't mind answering, when did you order? Where do you live? Did you upgrade shipping? I was just wondering when I could expect it. It's coming from CA and I'm in MD, and since postage was so cheap I figure it will take forever :rolleyes:

    Got my Stealth yesterday (in MD, ordered Thursday), and it's very nice. Pretty much the same experience as the 3G's Stealth that I had. It fits well, if a tad bulgy on the top and sides, which doesn't bug me too much. The headphone plug is a bit tight and hard to get out, but I don't use those things anyway. It's nice that it came with two of each plug, unlike the 3G version, since they're easy to lose (or, in my case with the 3G, be "misplaced" by a cat).

    These things are pretty much lint and dirt magnets, though, as I expect is the case with any silicone case. But it's a fair tradeoff for the protection it provides, and including all these things for $15 is a great deal. (Though if Apple starts giving these away for free as their bumper alternative, I'll be pissed.)

    Just ordered a Crimson one. Thanks for the link. I was going to wait on the free cases, but I have a feeling that these cases will be trash and they won't be received for a while. Thanks again :D

    Yeah, it was the only shipping option I was given. I ordered Thursday, got my shipping notification on Friday.

    Plus they probably won't include screen protectors. I see that some 3rd-party vendors are offering deals where you send in your free bumpers and get a discount on their case. Would be nice for SwitchEasy to do this, too, but $15 really isn't that much in the first place.

    Just ordered the Lime Color. I like bright colors as sometimes I lay my phone down and need to be able to spot it.
