    Return the Wave Case!!!! After two weeks of use it scratched the hell out of my poor iPhone 3G (back and chrome). Don't know about the other case but wave case is no good.

    Use the Neo instead. If you don't mind that logo keeping from being flat, its a much better case than the Rebel.

    If you are getting a case to prevent your phone from getting scratched I would advice against the Capsule Rebel.... I used one for 2 weeks... Took it off every charge cycle (2 days) and cleaned it and my phone really well... after only 2 weeks my bezel was scratched up.... the edge that sits on the chrome bezel is almost sharp enough to give you a paper cut...

    Must have been a bad cut Rebel because mine never did that. I switch between the Neo and the Rebel. One is more "radical" and the other is more "executive"

    actually I'm not the only one who's experienced scratches due to the Rebel... there's 3 youtube reviewers who have experienced it as well as numerous others...

    Switcheasy is a great company that gives A LOT for what you pay... The rebel would be my 2nd favorite case if it didn't have fitment issues... mine sags on the bottom and doesn't fit properly around the volume rocker... Also I wish they would make the spin more scratch resistant... I never even placed it on a hard surface and it looked as if I had dragged it across asphalt
