    they look great and the phone feels sturdier with it. The added width is nothing. I don't even notice it. They're great.

    I wonder if a 3G case will fit it now?

    The auction linked in this thread seems to imply that they fit 3G phones too.

    Fer realz yo?

    Can anyone try theirs on a 3G and snap a pic? I would have wanted one to hide the blemishes on my old white 16GB iPhone 3G and my brother may want one yet.

    I'm pretty sure they're not supposed to have the Apple logo and stuff on the back, but it's eBay so they are getting away with it. It looks like they were trying to give the illusion that the back of the case was actually the back of the iPhone itself. Not bad for $6 though.

    I got the red and black one in the other week, I really like them. The added width is noticeable but minimal, and they seem to hold up well, cause the other night my drunk friend tried to throw mine onto a bed, and it hit the wall. Case and phone held up fine.

    if anyone wants pics of mine lemme know.

    I have a 16GB 3G so I don't mind it saying so (provided it really does fit the 3G), but it appears that there are no "8GB" backs. So, market it to iPhone G1 owners as a way to front like it's a 3G and market it to 3G owners as a way to front that they have the more expensive model. Me? I just want a case that doesn't change the styling. Even the clear RocketFish one I got from Best Buy (it has an electrostatic screen cover) covers the silver hilights and scratches the reflective Apple logo when opening/closing.

    Oh, really? You think? Regardless, this is what some of us actually want.

    Doesn't seem everyone is (note the OP's example).

    Agreed.

    According to the auctions, it does, but, like you, I want to see it first.

    That case is actually nice. I bought 3 from eBay and was annoyed because I have OCD. The damn camera wasn't lined perfectly in the center of the cut out. I stopped using it.

    Is that because you were using it with a 3G or a 2G? They say it fits both. If you have a 3G, we are still waiting on confirmation that it really fits it (haven't seen any pictures). It sounds like you are using it with a 3G (your profile says you have one) and perhaps that is why the camera hole doesn't line up perfectly (it probably lines up better with a 2G).

    The branding is TIGHT

    Though I'm not too big of a fan of cases in general. Apple made the devices sexy as they are already, why cover all that up? =]

    I lined the inside of mine with clear tape, makes it a bit smoother than the plastic.

    Shipping takes forever... it comes from China (of Course) I think my last one took almost 2 weeks to get here. But, still for 6 bucks I cant complain too much.
