    Whenever I try and put it on my iPod, the rubber gets caught by the hard plastic which pushes the rubber outwards, so you can clearly see rubber underneath the plastic on the bottom left corner.

    Who thinks if I leave it like this, it will be permanently affected? Because I can't get it right :\ I've tried 4 times :\

    i had the same problem with my rebeltouch. the darn plastic thing also cut these deep grooves into the rubber part. i just ditched the rebeltouch cause it just wouldn't apply right on my touch. i dont know how some people had an easy time putting it on cause on mine the plastic just wouldnt come up and over the rubber part right.

    Yeah, I've got the grooves too :\

    I've waited AGES for this. Like.. 2 weeks from Germany. I don't want to pay shipping to send it back and have to wait longer to use my 2G.. I might try and snip a tiny bit of rubber off with scissors - And I'm sure the grooves in the rubber won't affect the performance of the case.

    What I had to do with mine, was put the rubber/silicone, whatever it's made of part on, make sure that it was covering the buttons correctly, and then, slide the top part of the hard shell on first, and then I worked my way down the Ipod, and it works and looks awesome now. Hope this helps. If not, I might be able to take some pictures to clarify.

    Nah I've always been doing that. Taking about 2 minutes to check the rubber part and then slide the top in, and clip in the skeleton but the rubber gets caught on the skeleton and pulls forward

    I had the same problem but I fixed it like this:

    1. Attatch one of the bottom corners first *that whole side should slide in after*

    2. Bend it over to the other corner and slowly put it over the rubber

    3. After you have attached all other parts bend the top over (where the hold button is)

    Arghh. I'm worried about putting it on from bottom to top... I can imagine me snapping the top of the spine :\
