Griffin reveal is the best protection with the most slim design I've seen so far... Just don't get the white one, they get dirty immediately.

I bought this one but in black. I like it because it feels like its not even there and the back is clear so it looks pretty cool.

I have the same one man, it's the GRIFFIN reveal, I've been talking about it throughout this thread.

Since you do have it, I found a little trick for the turn-by-turn, if you put it portrait style in your gauge cluster, you can get it to squeeze in there and be nice and snug enough not to fall out, and still can see MPH.

here is my OG post...

I actually really like my glow in the dark skin now... It needs sunlight to be super bright. I left it on the window sill for like 2 minutes, and it glows BRIGHT, enough to be bright indoors with lights on. Tried to take some pics, but meh, doesn't do it justice








The longer you leave it in the sun, the longer the glow lasts

My Ride: '99 Techno Violet M3
So, yesterday I noticed that my USB cube charger thing made a clicking noise when the USB to lightning cord was moved. In addition, I also noticed that when slight pressure was applied to the lightning connector end itself, the phone would stop charging. I scheduled an appointment at the genius bar and the genius replaced my phone with another right there. Unfortunately, this phone isn't quite right either. The top sleep/wake button feels sunken into the phone and the amount of pressure needed to actuate the button is higher than normal. It's incredibly annoying. I've got another appointment with the Apple store this evening to remedy the issues.

I hate going to the apple store

The customers are as clueless as some of the employees.

I hope yours isn't in a mall; that's dreadful.

Throw it in a pot full of water then heat the water on a stove for 10-15 mins. Then dry it off in the microwave. Set it for under a minute.

I hate it too. Even though the store itself is clean and well organized, and most of the employees know what's going on, I still have to make my way through the mall to get there. I'm going on a Friday afternoon as well, I'm sure the store will be overrun with people

I remember I was able to get my iPad 3 replaced through mail because I b1tched I wasn't going to waste my time going to the mall for the exchange.

It's a time consuming and frustrating process.

I was able to get a free accessory out of it too!

And I kept the wall charger and cable - apple just wanted the unit and they sent me a brand new retail iPad 3.

Worth a shot.

God I hate the mall so much lol

That's a score. And I hate it too. So I keep my dark ray-bans on until I'm in the apple store, talking with the genius.
