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.

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 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.
