So the custom case I ordered from Uncommon arrived in record time and the printing is very, very nice. The design of the case is one of the best I have seen but there is a deal breaker… the case is too tight to use with my screen protective film. I have tried several types and they all have a tendency to bubble the clear film when the lower portion of the case is attached. This is a real bummer. I did try the case with Invisible Shield by Zagg installed on the screen and it worked fine but I really don’t like the feel or look of Invisible Shield so I took it off. I even called the folks at Uncommon to see if they had a solution and they said they were aware of the problem and just recommended using the Invisible Shield as that seems to work with their case.
So where do this leave us / me… if you don’t use a screen protective film on your iPhone or if you use and like Invisible Shield and want a custom printed case then I’d give this case very high marks… but for my needs it is a real disappointment.

I’ve had my iPhone 3G since it’s release without a screen protector and have zero scratches or dings in it. I say live dangerously.
On the 3G I’d be ok but on the 3GS my understanding is that the coating is more prone to scratches… who knows!
nice new, somebody know how i can update my firmware for the iphone
Thanks, i hope see answers to help me
