    It accepts the TPU case like the one seen here? Any concerns while using the TPU case? Is it really secure? I'm desperately looking for a holster!

    Can you fit the surface case face out? Can you fit the TPU case face out? Any issues with both scenarios (fit, etc)? Thanks a bunch-- your input you help me decide if I get the holster or combo!

    That is the exact TPU case I got before I purchased the combo. It fits perfectly with the case inwards but not facing out due to the bump at the bottom of the phone. Besides the holster was designed with the phone facing inward to protect the screen.

    Right on. Thank you. My screen has a scratch protector film on it, but my camera is naked. I like to put my phone in my backpack sometimes but I'm scared that the camera will get scratched. Also, I'd like the ability to quickly glance at the phone on my hip instead of taking it out of the holster to look at it. A face-out holster would solve these issues.

    My 3GS camera is still brand new cause of my face out holster. It's screen is mint cause it has a film protector. I wish Seidio would make a face-out holster (nudge-nudge).

    yes they def are I ordered my case 2 days ago and had to write to them to see what the status was on my order. It seems like they lost it cuz she couldn't track it down and when she finally did she said I should get get an email soon and when I did the bottom "REPLACEMENT FOR MISSING ITEM, BROKEN ITEM OR DEFECTIVE ITEM"

    Yeah I'm going on 9 days now, still no case. Lesson learned, never choose free shipping option from Seidio.

    If preserving your camera lens is a concern and you want a Seidio case, your best choice is the Convert. With the full case combination installed, it has a camera lens cover. Yes, it is a bulkier case when fully installed, but it is darn near bullet-proof. With the paper-thin profile of the GS2, even with a full Convert on it, it shouldn't be a brick to carry, you can still holster it face-in to protect the screen and the lens cover will protect the camera. In my line of work, aviation maintenance, a Convert is the only way to go.

    Yeah, I'd do that, but it looks like the Convert won't be coming to the GSII--even the international version doesn't have it. =/

    The lack of any kind of tracking stinks for their free shipping. I would call them back if you don't have it. No way it should take USPS that long to deliver it.

    I've talked to them twice. We are up to 14 days total, 10 of which are USPS working days. As you might have guessed I DID NOT receive the freaking case today. Seidio says if not by end of week call them back they will open case with USPS. I told them end of week I am disputing charge they can explain it to the CC company...

    EDIT - USPS tracking now finally shows status, they were notified to "expect package for delivery from Seidio on Oct 28th". So, either Seidio is full of BS, or USPS is way off on their status update...

    I apologize if some of you are experiencing shipping delays with your orders. Unfortunately, once the package is tendered to USPS, the route is out of our control. We understand how frustrating it can be to wait for your package, but please bear with us. The delivery confirmation information is not always updated immediately or accurately by USPS.

    If your package is shipping via USPS, you will usually receive delivery confirmation information via email when your package ships. If you don't receive anything, feel free to email customer service (customerservice@seidioonline.com) and they will be able to provide you with an update. If you have additional questions about the process, feel free to contact me via PM.

    I suspect anyone would consider 15+ days shipping to be excessive... 12 of which are USPS delivery days.. Seidio says case shipped day after I ordered it. USPS Tracking # says Siedo didn't even pull shipping no. till 8 days later, and item has not physically shipped yet.

    Yes I know USPS can be behind, but it is unlikely they are 2 weeks behind. Today is 15th day, mail has run, no case. Just going to let CC company deal with it I guess.

    I just picked up the "Platinum" case at Best Buy - it's the Surface case and holster, including the drilled hole for the AT&T mic. It's definitely a rebranded Seidio case - it even says so on the packaging. $35 and its on my phone right now.

    Check out the bottom of the package - it's actually made by Seidio!
