FWIW this case was demoed at the Launch startup conference and the creater of the case borrowed a phone from someone on the judging panel and threw it in a fishtank.
Wonder if doing this would help take care of the overheat warning?
I'm joking but makes me wonder :D

Yeah. I'm getting one. I preordered when I first saw the Launch demo video. Pricey but worth it considering the level of protection.

I'm totally psyched about this case. I can't wait to get it. It looks to be even skinnier than the Otterbox Defender, which is mind-boggling considering the defender isn't any sort of waterproof. Though, does that mean it's not as drop-proof as the defender? Not a big deal. It seems to be drop-proof enough for my usage (falling out of my shirt pocket and sinking to the bottom of the lake :eek:k:eek:k) and the waterproofness is like having my cake and eating it too.

I will definitely give it a whirl, water and all. My only concerns are whether it can be made to float, and whether it loses its waterproofness with repeated removal. I frequently have to take my iPhone out of any sort of case in order to use it in testing at work (where I need flush access to the dock port).

This case can't come soon enough.
Hurry up April.
April showers bring lifeproof cases!
No kiddin'!
I signed up for the pre order.... I wasn't aware that it was only going to ship in April though....I must have missed that part! Crap

Edit:
Yesterday I posted on Their Facebook page how exited I was to receive their payment confirmation email... They replied with thank you, and they would send me email in April! I feel like a fool....I've been checking my email for them everyday since I preordered! Lol

I'm checking my email everyday also but what do you mean "payment confirmation" I haven't paid anything yet I got an email saying they'd contact me for billing and payment when the case is ready to order.

That's what I meant to say! They're going to send me an email when the case is ready, so that I can send payment.

Ahh ok we're in the same boat then.
If that boat sunk and I had my lifeproof case at least I'd know my iPhone would be safe.

Kinda wish they would hurry up. Releasing a new case 2 months before the next phone is announced is kinda behind the 8-ball, if you know what I mean.

Lucky for me I'm not planning on upgrading to the 5...I'll probably wait for the 6 the same way I skipped the 3GS.

I do know what you mean... I had the same feeling from the MagellanGPS ToughCase, which is waterproof and has a built in battery and GPS chip. It was designed for the 3G/3GS/touch and came out right around the same time as the iPhone 4.

Luckily, though, the reason I want this case so badly is mainly so I can take great pictures out on the lake and not have to worry about getting it wet. The iPhone 4's camera is pretty damn good, and I doubt the iPhone 5 will get much of an improvement over that without getting thicker. (which is something I've been saying should happen anyway; moar battery!)

So, as long as it comes out at all, I'll be pretty happy. And I'll get my revenge on that lake that usurped my first iPhone 4 last year. :eek:k:eek:k
