Great case keeps one of the most important thing in my life really safe. Get it you wont regret it!
I put this case on my phone, and I don't like it because the edges stick up so far that it makes it difficult to type on the screen for texts and emails, and now I can't get it off. There seems to be a release button on the back that I should push to disconnect the two parts, but I can't push it in far enough to get the bottom to release. Please help me get this thing off my phone. Also, the part that is supposed to keep the charger plug in dry doesn't stay in, so it doesn't protect it against water and is a nuisance.
Poor dust protection
I work in a dusty environment and the 3GS is rugged but offers no protection for my needs. Close but no cigar.
Doesn't Get Any Better Than This!
Great protection, easy slide opening. Will get another when I upgrade to the iPhone 4 or 5 series.
