Interesting, the only options for me are USPS.

I had an option for USPS, FedEx and not sure what the third option was but it was something in regards to shipping to Europe (May have been FedEx for international not sure) I chose the FedEx option even though it cost more than the USPS.

International shipping has to be via USPS, otherwise you're hosed. I just shipped a collectors item CD I sold on ebay to Italy in a bubble mailer. USPS $5. UPS $60. Go figure.

TheBigNewt 11-03-2006 04:26 PM

Ordered rubberized case. Thanks for 15% discount (covers shipping anyway).

Seidio uses the premium rubberized material to prevent it from scratching.

I noticed it said on their site that the rubberized case is NOT easy to take off once it is on. Hope you dont have to pull the battery too often.

I got the skin version and its quite convenient.

How is the premium jet black skin different than the"rubberized case? The premium one that I have seems "rubberized" and snug to me. Is it just the way you put them on?

Also when you say the rubberized one fits better is this bad for the phone? Because my premium skin seems pretty snug and tight. Is one thicker?

Finally is there a color difference? (It seems like it, but hard to tell.)

1.) Is the only difference between the premium skin and rubberized case the way you put them on or are they different materials? (Because the premium skin I have seems "rubberized" to me).

2.) When you say the rubberized one fits better, is this bad for the phone? I aks because my premium skin seems pretty snug. Couldn't imagine something being much tighter on the phone or its corners.

3.) Is one thicker than the other?

4.) Also, it seems like there is a color difference. Can anyone confirm please.

Thanks for taking the time to review and hope someone can help me answer these questions. Thanks!

The jet black skin is silicone (flexible). The rubberized one it hard plastic with a rubber feel.

I am missing something here. I want to order one of the (rubber) but I can't seem to find the site to do so. Can some one put up a link or point me in the right direction?

Thanks

jbattlesjr 11-03-2006 07:53 PM

Is there a link to the site where I can order one of these (rubber)? I must be missing something.

Thanks

sorry for the double post

nmadd 11-03-2006 09:51 PM

Thanks for the great review! And thanks to seidio for the discount! Now, I only have to decide which one to get. :razz:

JinFocker 11-03-2006 10:13 PM

I got the green silicon skin and it's kinda flimsy. How's the fitting on the crystal case? Im mainly getting a case because the battery door is so easy to pop out.

bflint 11-03-2006 10:14 PM

How hard is it to remove the rubberized case when you have to pull the back off and will the tabs that hold the rubberized one on evetually break off

bflint 11-03-2006 10:16 PM

How hard is the rubberized case to remove and will it stand up to a lot of resets
