    The proximity sensor on my white iPhone 4 is really sensitive. It won't work whenever a case (that covers it) is on it and even a screen protector messes it up. I am really wanting to buy a Lifeproof case but am afraid it won't work with my phone. Has anyone else with this problem successfuly used Lifeproof? I am really wanting to know before I spend $80 on a case. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks! : )

    I use the white case with the white 4s (at the moment) have no problems
    I never use the speaker but when I do I get some muffled sound
    I am pretty rough on my phone and like that I can just throw it in my purse/pocketbook without worries like my keys and other items scratch or even break the glass (happened to me with my new iPhone4)
    If it get's dirty just rinse. And love my phone in my jeans pockets when I drop it no big deal. I would say go to BestBuy and buy it there test it right at the store and if you have issues return on the spot!

    I have heard problems with that but I also remember reading somewhere that the new generation case has made that much less of an issue. Guy at work hasn't complained about that...just the echo problem.

    I always had issues with the iPhone 4 prox sensor anyway....case or not. There were iOS updates that claimed to fix it but for me it only made it marginally better.

    Thank you all for the advice! I'm pretty sure I'm going to go ahead and it get it to try it out. I really want the pink case and Best Buy only has the white and black, but I may end up trying it out there before I place an order from their website. I really wish Best Buy would get more colors in!

    From Lifeproof site when selecting Gen 2 case:

    Important Note: iPhone 4S Ambient Light Sensor


    If an iPhone 4S is used with some Black or Purple LifeProof cases there may be an issue with the the ambient light sensor used to automatically adjust screen brightness. You can simply adjust your screen brightness setting. All White and Pink LifeProof cases are unaffected, as are all iPhone 4 phones.

    I did see that on their website but my problem is not with the light sensor but the proximity sensor. Thank you for the information though! : )

    I used pink all summer and then send it to friend in Germany. I really would love some sort of a light blue one. I had all colors and must say the purple really looks sharp
