    Just got this e-mail from Lifeproof:

    Thank you for signing up for the iPhone 5 pre-order list.

    We know you love your iPhone 5 and want a case that lets you take it everywhere without worrying about drops, scratches, daily living or the elements.

    Our goal is for you to have your LifeProof Frē case as soon as possible, however, Apple does not share any information prior to their official announcement. We have an army of engineers working 24/7 on three continents, racing to get the case delivered.

    You may be asking, "Why is LifeProof not yet on the market when other protective cases are?" The answer is simple: LifeProof is the only everyday case that’s water proof, dirt proof, snow proof and shock proof − which means we won’t design a product with gaping holes over the camera, microphones and speakers just to rush a case out the door. Without these protections, other case makers avoid any technical complexity in getting their cases ready.

    At LifeProof, we make a promise to our customers to deliver the best case possible, even if it means our case takes a little longer to get to you.

    Additionally, all LifeProof cases need to pass thorough independent lab testing to meet Military Standards for shock and impact protection, and for IP-68 water, dirt, and snow protection. Our team is working with total dedication and urgency because we believe this is worth getting right.

    What's more, anyone can build a bulkier case, but we’re committed to making our thinnest and lightest case ever. This adds a level of complexity to our case, but our values drive us to deliver only the best. We want you to be thrilled with your LifeProof Frē case for the iPhone 5, and our new iPhone 5 case substantially improves every dimension of experience over our very popular iPhone 4 case.

    And, we’re almost there! We expect to ship our first LifeProof Frē case for iPhone 5 within the month.

    I thank you for your patience and I’m confident that you will believe the wait was totally worth it once your iPhone 5 is LifeProof.

    Figured quite a few of us got the email but just for those that didn't.

    Did (do) you like yours? I've yet to have one and am debating. I HATE cases that add too much bulk. I couldn't stand the Otterbox

    There are several posts on the forum about the LifeProof. Short answer is: Yes, I like it very much.

    I love my lifeproof!
    Don't buy ever at eBay or amazon you'll get the first model. The one I have is easy touch screen touch just like a screen cover and perfect nice slim and protection 100%!
    Apple doesn't cover water damage... Lifeproof does lol
    I love My Mophie as well....

    Lifeproof does not cover water damage. Like every other case manufacturer, they warrant their cases only not the device inside.

    Apple covers water damage with AppleCare+.

    Just ordered mine. Getting directly from lifeproof. Figure best way to ensure I get the second gen. Did you have one for the 4s? How does it compare?
