    Just got the email from Switcheasy about their products - check it out:

    ......no Switcheasy Capsule Rebels though - they were my fave cases EVER on the iPhone 4!

    I sure hope the Nude UltraBlack looks better in person than it does on those photos. I've been using that case exclusively since 2010 on my iPhones 4 and 5 and the newest version doesn't look very good. I'll wait for reviews.

    I ordered a Tones and Numbers for iPhone 6. I have an Eclipse on my 4S and it is the favorite case I have used. Online reviews indicate some quality issues with the SwitchEasy 5 and 5S cases. I am hoping those have been resolved because I really like the design - especially the integrated port covers.

    Have you gotten the cases yet? I was curious about how you liked the Tones.

    Yeah the Capsule Rebel line was my favorite too! I bought those cases for my iPhone 3GS and 4. Wish they would make something similar for 6. :(

    I agree with you. The Switcheasy cases I bought for my 3gs and 4s are strong and they come with 2 screen protectors each. I've dropped my phones many times and my phones have never cracked. I feel Switcheasy now is putting more emphasis on how the case looks rather than on the quality of the materials.

    ----------

    The Capsule Rebel were my favorite cases. I don't know why they stopped making it from iPhone 5 on.

    The NUDE looks really nice , will it provide any protection or its the same as the $0.99 ones on eBay ? ( just with better photoshop )

    I received my Tones on Wednesday. (Pre-ordered last Friday) The guy who said SwitchEasy isn't what it used to be is right. This Tones feels nothing like the one I have for my iPhone 5 and the case is too thick.

    ugg, I was afraid of that. I really liked the last version of the Tones. Mine hasn't arrived yet. Can you post up pics with your iPhone in the case?

    Switcheasy Tones

    well, the Switcheasy Tones arrived today. still getting a feel for it so these are just first impressions. it is thinner than i expected, which is good since my expectations were low based on the posts above. it is a good, snug fit. buttons are a little hard to press, but may get better over time. it is a very solid case. the TPU on the sides does not sag or pull away at all and it is grippy. the lighter gray is solid plastic. decent lip on the top, mute switch easy to get to. i would classify this a slim, tough case.
    the only issue is that the headphone plug doesn't fit very well. it is too tight. actually, i can't even force it flush. the lightening plug fits perfectly. i'm sure i could trim it to size with an exacto knife easily enough. i will let Switcheasy know about the fit regardless.
    like i said, still getting a feel for it.
    on to pictures....

    Damn! That has a simplistic beauty to it the catches my eye. I wonder if the 6 plus version is as nice. Thanks for the pics. Case PRON

    My only issue with that case is the same issue the previous version had, their "black" isn't black.

    It looks alright but it definitely doesn't look it has the same fit and finish as the tones from the 4 and 5 generations.

    I'm also not a fan of the case integrated port covers.

    Thank you. I have an Incipio NGP but would rather have the Numbers because of the integrated port covers.

    I don't like their cases for the iPhone 6 and I agree about the Capsule Rebel. I still use it with my iPhone 4 and it has protected my phone like a new.

    I was looking for some cases and found this i-Blason case, similar to Capsule Rebel. I'm planning on getting one along with iPhone 6 in November.

    Here's the pic and link to it.

    Really cool. I like how they replicated the double-band antenna design on the back of the case. Nice touch.

    I really love SwitchEasy but I'm not impressed with their current selection of cases for iPhone 6. Hoping something similar to the Bonds line is released for the 6. :(
