    How are people getting this case?

    I currently have he black one but I don't see the white case on AT&T's site and my local AT&T says that the white is not a color available to order.

    About to go pick one up at my local MicroCenter. I saw them there a couple of days ago. It is the revised version as well. Willing to help you out if needed.

    I'll be getting an iPhone soon hopefully and this is the case I'm wanting.

    However, I'm in the UK and so it's not as easy to get a hold of.

    Amazon have it but I'm not sure if it's the old or revised version. The picture shows the keyhole camera cut which would suggest old but the picture may just be outdated. Does anyone have an idea about this?

    If it's the old version, would anyone be able to help me by buying the revised version and me paying for it by paypal? Thanks in advance :)

    Buying from Amazon

    I wanted to buy from Amazon too but didn't know what revision it was! I wanted the black one though since that's the only one on sale and I prefer the black color more. My brother would have to get the other colors from the AT&T store if they have for the full $35!

    I've got a keyhole version and don't seem to have a problem with the flash.

    My cutout has a black lining though, whereas some of te other cases have pink etc. I don't think white needs a revision - or black come to think of it.

    Ah ok. Thanks!

    Are you from the UK or US?

    I want the black one too.

    I think I might just pick up the Incipio NGP as I'm impatient :p I'll also be ordering the Incase Snap smoke from the free case program when I get the phone.

    I like to plan ahead :p

    I have both the black Speck Candyshell and the Incipio NGP. Let me tell ya, the Speck feels way better in the hand. First case I've had for my iPhone 4 that's stayed on for more then a day or two.

    Granted, the Incipio is my 2nd favorite case.

    Thanks for the help.

    Is the Incipio good for drop protection? If you can, can you list some pros/cons of each? I would be very grateful :)

    Lol, those are the only two cases you have, no wonder they're both the cases you like. I never knew how the NGP Matte felt since it's not silicone or hard plastic?

    Umm, I have around 8 more cases back home in Japan (I'm in the states for a couple of weeks) and a few cases I've returned.

    The Speck Candyshell from Amazon (well one seller in the UK) is the old version. Check the link I posted above and it's in the comments section.

    Just checked microcenter.com and noticed that they have 2 in stock near me in Chicago. If I wasn't satisfied with my Otterbox Defender I would probably grab one of these cases.

    I like the looks of the white candyshell, but wouldn't it get scratches and start to turn brown (much like the white bumper)?

    I had the candy shell and I just switched to the NGP for about a week now.
    The candy shell made it more bulky then I prefer and it got easily scratched.

    Both are fine cases though.

    FYI- Just ordered a White revised Candyshell from Speck's website. The White, Grey and a few others are in stock for shipping now.

    Was hoping to find a coupon for a discount but could not locate one so I just bit the bullet.

    I have the black for less than a week and the gray bezel is starting to wear.

    This is why I hate Speck Candyshells. Sucks.

    Same here - had mine for a few weeks but only used it for about a week's worth of time so far and the gray bezel on the front is flaking/cracking. I emailed Speck three days ago and have received no response. I think I'm about ready to give up on this one and move on to other cases.

    Anyone who has used the white candyshell, do the scratches on the back turn brown (or any color) after awhile?
