    NEVER Buy the Incase Slider! EVER! (Unless you hate yourself)

    Never ever buy the Incase Slider as there are problems with them not coming off (as in getting stuck)! People (such as I) have had to resort to brute force methods. They will not come off as Incase made batches with the wrong size specs.
    People Pissed off:Here, Here, and Here.
    Heres what i had to do to get it off after 2 freakin hours!

    The part where the volume rocker is needed to be cut to bend the railing.

    The "cuts" on the upper middle part of the case was my frustration and failed attempt to cut the case.

    The bottom piece had no scratches though. Any buyers lol.

    Review Anyone?!
    I know that there's tons of reviews out there for the Incase slider but would anyone want me to do a review? I'm getting another one tomorrow (thanks Incase customer support) and I hope it's the new one with fancy packaging and that video stand.

    Update: Review is up! Click here!

    What the hell? Thats weird! I have an InCase Slider black myself and it fits snug and darn near perfect! Dropped on the concrete with my old iPhone before I got a replacement and it protected the phone perfectly... Does its job in my opinion

    You ripped the case to get it off? That sucks =\

    Yeah it does suck because i really liked the case. IThe good news is thats one f***in tough case. I have no worries about it being about to stand a drop. I contacted Incase but and they have to get back to me but i effed up the case. I have a trip soon and AT&T has bad coverage up there so i had to get the sim card in and set.

    I got it at Best Buy so it might have been an old batch. The Griffin Nu Form looks legit and its only twenty buxs. It took me forever to cut the case because i had to put a microfiber cloth between the blade and the iPhone. Its a tough and rigid case though, except you cant take it off.

    Yes the case is very tough! I only have a little gouge on the outside on the corner from dropping it 3 feet off the ground on gravel/concrete...

    but that is very weird because mine is fine and its black and i got it like 2 months ago

    Im going to the Apple store this Tuesday because of wifi issues, the rattling noise, and a constant buzzing noise from the ear speaker all the time. Ill try and see if i can get an Incase Slider that fits good then.

    I love the incase Slider and want one, but I have a Bodyguardz and I don't want to remove it.

    The reason I still love it after reading this is because the first models or shipments of the Slider had this problem. They apparently changed the design somehow for it to slide out easily now.
