    Hey all...

    Wanted to give my two cents on the SwitchEasy Nude for the iPhone 4. I have always used the SwitchEasy cases since my 3G and have LOVED them. I got the UltraClear for my IP4 and after getting it I noted after a week that a serious amount of dust collected at the back. I emailed back to them and they were good about changing it out but denied my request for the UltraBlack as I was scared about the dust issue again.

    Now two weeks after the new one came the dust issue is back and I have noticed that the sides seem to become loose over time.... anyone else with any issues?

    I have now moved over to my free Apple case which is the Incase Snap SMOKE and love it... such a shame about the SwitchEasy!

    I have one I haven't used yet. Do you carry it in a pocket where there's likely to be a lot of lint & dust?

    I used the Switcheasy Nude for a little while and found the same issue. Nice case, but the fact it doesn't wrap around the screen edge means it acts like a bit of a tray for dust which gets in the side edges between the case and the phone and works it's way round the back. I got the Ultrablack edition which doesn't show the dust as much, but I still found myself cleaning it out all the time. Started using the Switcheasy Colors case now.

    I had the same issue. I switched to the SGP Ultra Slider.

    Hey thanks all, glad it was not just mine.
    Shame they wont swap it out for the UltraBlack,
    Maybe I will now be a Incase guy as the dust is insane in the Ultraclear when you look at it.

    Switcheasy was a big fail on this case. I stopped using switcheasy for a while. Mine had the same problem, and not just that but the back has more then a million scratches on it.

    I used to be a fan of Switcheasy, but after using their cases for long periods of time (2months+) their cases just fall apart. My capsule neo plastic would chip, my rebel broke in half as i took it apart to clean, the colors stretched out horribly over time, reptile trim cracking, etc etc.

    In short, switcheasy cases look cool, but i kinda feel like their "everything but the kitchen sink" is just a gimick so we don't notice the flaws with their product. It worked on me anyways.
