Use a nickel to open/remove the case
This hardshell case is fantastic -- once you figure out how to get it on and off your phone. Surprisingly, there are no instructions included in the box, which is a huge oversight on Vera Bradley's part that I think would help allay some of the frustration I and other Vera fans have experienced when trying to remove this case from our iPhones. To remove it, put a nickel in the small gap in the bottom left corner of the case, and twist the nickel. The corner will pop right open, and you can remove the case from there. The durability of this case is excellent. I normally use an Incipio NGP Semi-Rigid Softshell case, which is a slightly flexible plastic with a silicone/"soft touch" coating. This Vera case is just a bit thicker and more durable than the Incipio case. I've dropped my phone with the Vera case on at about 3 feet above the ground, and both the case and the phone were totally fine. And now that I can easily remove the case from my phone, I LOVE it!

This case WILL protect your phone!!
I just bought a new iphone this summer and needed a case for it because that phone was so expensive. I have been a big fan of Vera Bradley for a while and took a chance on this hardshell case. Let me tell you that it is worth every penny!! I am a teacher and am constantly on the go. I have dropped my phone on concrete at least 3 times since school started and my case and phone are in perfect condition. On impact this case has saved my phone every time. So far no damage to the case but if there were like in the previous reviewers situation it is definitely cheaper to replace a case than an iphone.

Beautiful iphone case
I purchased the Priscilla Pink design and I absolutely love this case. It has a really nice soft feel to it and fits the iphone 4s perfiectly. I too had a little trouble figuring out how to get it on the phone, but eventually realized that the front part snaps off the back part. I love that it is fairly easy to remove when I want to change to another case. The pink rubber part (the side bumper) is the most beautiful soft gorgeous pink. I can't say enough about how wonderful this case is. I hope it will come in other colors, as I would like to get a few more.
If you are thinking of getting this case and haven't made up your mind yet, you should definitely go ahead and order one when they become available again. You will love it.
Thanks Vera, for another great item.
