ive been looking for a good case for my iPhone and the incase is one if the one I wasthinking about getting because it seems to keep the sleekness of the phone pretty well. For those of you who actually hve it, does it really scratch the chrome? I have no scraches so far from keeping the phone naked in my pocket but I'm concerned about dropping it. Suggestions? Help?

I've had the incase for a couple of weeks and no scratches but it's really stretching out. I like the case as it, well used to, fit tight and helped protect it without being bulky. I have a thin silicon slip on skin for my Blackberry that I like but haven't seen anything available like it for the iPhone.

Had mine for about 6 days and it left little scratches all over the chrome..took it off and had to polish the scratches out using Icleaner.

I had the incase on my iPhone for a week or so, and yes it left little scratches from dirt and lint getting underneath the case and scratching the chrome. So I took it off and now use the bestskinsever.

Mine hasn't scratched the chrome bezel at all. But my boss took his to the beach and came back with a bunch of scratches. So, it really just depends on where you use it, I guess. I run by finger under the lip to wipe away any scratch-inducing debris that may have collected there.

Mine has scratches on the bezel as well. I did have it at the shore for a week, but only one the physical beach once. I guess some salty air and/or sand got under the lip and scratched the bezel. I was going to try to order a new bezel from iFixit when they come in, but maybe iCleaner is a better option.

yes your suppose to completely make sure no lint or dust is in because once you put it on and if stuff r stuck inbetween it suppose to kinda dmg it other then that it does also loosen up if u take it off and on...:oops:

No scratches on the chrome for me, but I carry the iPhone with incase inside another magnetic flap (yes, magnets) case clipped to my belt.

Been using one for about a month now, no scratches. The inside of the case is acutally really soft like felt. Its a very good quality case.
Scratched mine up.

I taped the screen and converted the shiney chrome bezel to a brushed look, so no more worrying about it. IMHO it looks better, less bling.
But then I also moved to an Orbino case to, which is awesome.
