    second that... for me, a lot of the other cases i saw either took away from the look and style of the iPhone or affected functionality (e.g. raised edge makes tapping items close to the edge of the screen a little more difficult)

    man i want the elan snap in but this guy i saw at apple store had his mounted in the horizontal postition and it slipped out and hit floor, do you have to crush it a little to have it put tension on phone?

    I got this case for review and liked it alright. The iPhone fit great in the one I had if the holster was in the vertical position, but if horizontal I was scared of it falling out. It was a good simple design, but the DLO Hip pouch is the way to go.

    I have this case and I use it in the horizontal postition works awesome. It is a nice snug fit. I don't understand how that guy droped his phone unless it was not all the way in the case.. Mine fits very nice and snug can't see it falling out..

    I got this case with my phone and loved it. However it broke already. I don't know if it was a freak accident why it broke or the plastic on the clip is cheap but it completely snapped at the hinge. Has that happened to anyone else?

    Ah, I was just looking at reviews on the Apple Store website and more than a few people had the same problem. I was thinking of going to buy it again but I guess I'll go with something else now.

    I had the clip break too... Word of advice, take it back to Apple or call Griffin, they have a 1 year warranty on this case and WILL replace it!

    it's cr@p cuz it only let's you clip it on with the face-out, but if you want it to have in your pocket it's a tight fit.

    Avoid this case like the plague. Clip keeps breaking, sending the phone spiraling to the ground. Ended up just getting a complete refund. Awaiting the iskin REVO case. Something with more shock absorption seems to be best for me. GL
