iStyles5/this iphone skin is sickkkkj. garcia, United States, 5 September 2008
iStyles5/Be warned! This is a total rip off!!!!!!!!! The skin warps fast ( I barely used the phone in the two weeks that I applied it and it is already showing wear.) Their description is totally an exaggeration. The skin does not even compensate for looking good. Plus, there is this extra cutting on the top that is totally unneeded. I spoke to an Apple representative and they said that the cut should not HAVE to be done because the proximity sensor will work well even if it is covered.J. Chua, United States, 20 February 2008
Another thing is this site has NO CUSTOMER SERVICE AT ALL!!!! They will keep making excuses with you up to the point that you give up. They do this to tire you out so they don't have to rectify their issue with you. I am VERY DISAPPOINTED and will NEVER buy from this site EVER. Their low prices coincide with the low quality product and zero customer care.
We are sorry that you feel this way despite the great lengths that we went to in the explanation of the situation despite your purchase of just $6.99 (as you've repeatedly emphasised in your mails). Perhaps we are indeed charging too little and should sell them for $15 like other manufactures, while covering only the back or we are trying too hard to help as per the long explanations below, most of which were extracted from my e-mails to you.
While I do understand that you're disappointed with the "warp" and I'll assume that what you're referring to is the "wear" at the edges. Please understand that this wear will happen if you subject the edges to constant abrasion with an external object.
The product is made out of cast vinyl which has a lifespan of between 5 to 8 years, and a layer of laminate is then applied to further give the product strength and protect the artwork. This product will withstand fair usage but if the edges, for example, are constantly rubbed with a foreign object, they will start to peel over time.
Skins are not as durable as other cases, like silicone cases, but they can last a very long time if handled properly. We have customers who had Skins for years and we've also had customers who tore the Skin during the application process. The lifespan of a Skin depends on how it's handled.
With regards to other cases, do look around at products from other manufacturers, especially those of iPhone cases. You'll notice the massive opening they have just above the speaker - that's for the proximity sensor. Why is everyone cutting big holes in their products if it's not necessary, as claimed by your Apple representative?
Unless Apple updated the proximity sensor in the newer iPhones, the "Apple representative" does not know what he is talking about.
The proximity sensor is located above the speaker, where the second cutting appears. If this cutting is not made, your proximity sensor is blocked. When this happens, your screen will be completely disabled whenever you're in a call, as if the phone is place to your ear. As such, when you're in a call, you will not be able to end the call, mute the call, or do anything else other than to wait for the other party to end the call.
The complete disabling of the disabling of the phone features prompted us to cut an extra oval cutting to allow for the operation of the phone.
To better understanding the importance of this cutting, try calling a company that requires you to enter key presses in its menu selection (eg, "press 1 for english... press 1 for credit card, press 2 for banking"). You'll find that you will not be able to operate the screen as the phone still thinks that it's against your ear.
Try placing a call to someone as well. You'll not be able to "mute" or to "end call" if the cutting is blocked because the phone thinks that it's still against your ear.
Based on your explanation, you expect the screen to turn off in a call. This is complete incorrect as I tried to explain that the screen should only turn off when the phone is placed to your ear, not when it's in a call. There is a huge difference.
If the proximity sensor is still working even when you cover the opening, it just means that you either have an abnormally powerful proximity sensor or you have not covered the opening properly or you simply do not use the functions of the phone when you're in a call. The Skin is opaque and will completely block the sensor if the opening is not present.
In fact, we made the mistake of not cutting that opening for the proximity sensor when we first launched the product and it resulted in lots of problems with customers. This was subsequently corrected with the cutting as per the product you received.
I'm sorry to hear that my response was somehow perceived as 'excuses' but they are in fact explanations as to why we made a cutting for the proximity sensor. You'll find that whatever that's written above was taken directly from my mails to you. I hope that you actually tried covering the opening as you claimed in your mail instead of relying on the "wise" advise of this Apple representative.
I do apologize if the 'tone' of my e-mails might have sounded a little tense in the later e-mails as I re-explained everything. I always try to be impartial and respond professionally with sincere help, as almost everyone else who had communicated with me can testify to, but it is extremely frustrating to try so hard to help by explaining a situation only to be met with obnoxious, condescending and rude replies.
In any case, I hope that you re-read my explanations about the sensor and the wearing and we wish you all the best in your endeavors elsewhere.
iStyles5/On the internet this skin looks like it has yellow, orange, white, and pink colors on it. In actuality, the pink is red. Then when I downloaded the backgroud, its hot pink; the background doesnt match the skin. I was not to excited about that.R. Malutich, United States, 14 February 2008
iStyles5/I really wish someone would contact me back on how to download the wallpaper to my i-phone. I purchased 7 skins. I am getting very frustrated. Thank you.M. Sagginario, United States, 20 December 2007
I checked your account and you made no purchase whatsoever. Did you place the order using another account?
The wallpaper code and download instructions are printed on the unused area of the Skin and you will be able to download them after you receive the products.
Fast delivery and excellent fit on the item. This is my second purchase from iStyles and, although pricy, I love being able to personalise my stuff my way. Great product - easy to apply and holds well. I love the matt finish and the picture reproduction and colour were great. Would definitely use again.Karen Swann, United Kingdom
