:eek:...jeeez. I know Mindi has at least 20 iP5 cases but you too?
Naw, I only have four plus three that are in transit. Three of the four I have right now were only five bucks. One of the five-dollar cases was a gift (thanks, Naps!) and one wasn't what I ordered. They supposedly shipped the correct one after I emailed them, but that was two weeks ago so it may not ever arrive. I blame all of this on Element for not making a Vapor Comp 5. I'd probably only have one case if they did... ;)

Speaking of Element Case it seems they are intent on developing a completely new line of cases for the iPhone 5. In other words they aren't planning to retrofit the Vapor COMP or the Vapor Pro to a iP5 version. Oh well. Maybe they'll come up with something that works. Just not feeling that Sector 5 case.

Gotta thank you again for this link. Mine finally arrived today and this may be my favorite iPhone case ever! The fit and finish is just spectacular. I haven't seen anything else on the market like it. Really loving it.

I got my crystal clear Hybri-Flex PC+TPU case on Monday. It was only $3.99 and it had free shipping from China. I ordered it on the 18th and it got here on the 22nd. Very impressed with the shipping speed and the case is really nice, especially considering it was under $4. The only complaint I have is that it's not compatible with either (stubby and 0.2 m) of the Apple adapters. Otherwise, I really like how it looks, feels and fits. Thanks for recommending it.

One annoying thing about the Otterbox Defender is that the lightning adaptor won't fit with the case on :|

I've read reviews saying it doesn't work with the stubby adapter, but that it *does* work with the 0.2 m adapter.

I ordered one yesterday just because. For $4 I figured worse case I can throw in in the trash! thanks for the good review Mindi!

I have to be able to see the Apple logo to be happy, so I'm limited to clear cases and bumpers. Anyone else relate to this? I noticed that the new Lifeproof cases have a cutout, so I see one in my future.

I like that too, but I need protection more than anything. I'm dropping the phone a lot this days, I think 20 years of pushing on a hard table making pizzas has taken a toll on me, so I gotta go with a little more protection and sacrifice the design factor. At least with this case I now can take it out a lot easier then before.



If anyone wants my candyShell let me know.

Incipio and Pure Gear have great cases for the iPhone 5. We have always been a fan of their products

I am getting the Speck Flip, in black, just as soon as they price it right on Amazon, at present this particular one is about $7 more than one of the other colors - and I think that's not right - I realize it's how businesss is done, but I can wait!

For what it's worth (a buck) the black one dropped a buck between yesterday and today. Maybe before the Frankenstorm hits it'll drop a couple more!

I got my free ($4) case from Zoo Gue in the mail today. Surprisingly, this is only my 4th case. I told myself that I was not gonna go case crazy this time. Had about a dozen cases for my 4 by this time! I ended up giving most of those away to family members after I settled down with one everyday case and a wallet case.
