    Picked up this case when I picked up my phone until I could order a seidio or other case. It blocks the led notification and more importantly it scratches the 2,q,a,w,s,z,o, and l keys from the attachment points...not sure if its just my case but I'm starting to seethe scratches quite well.

    Just a heads up. Anyone else see this or kno of better cases?

    I got the same case. It hasn't scratched my keys, but it does block the LED notification light. I don't mind not seeing the notification light too much since I always look at the phone, but I got the case for free anyways since I used the $15 off $60 coupon from my Entertainment book. I couldn't use the coupon on the phone, but I could use the coupon on accessories, so I only had to pay tax on it

    I would seriously consider returning that case if I were you. I got it the first day I got my Epic. I tried taking it off and it bent the bevel on my phone I had to snap my brand new phone bevel back in place. I then bought the Seido case, the Brush gray one. I returned that and I am now on the Official Samsung case for the Epic. By far this case is the best. :D And cheaper than the Seido and just a tad more expensive than the Milante

    Seido>Official Case>Milante.

    Already returned it blitz

    Keep us updated if anything changes for u adel. I though it may jut have been a defective unit but since it wasn't just one side of the keyboard I figured it was the case, took over a week of opening and closing the keyboard to notice the scratches starting to appear

    Same thing here, I didn't really notice it till after the 30 days went by so I am kind of SOL for a return. Radio Shack recommended this case to me and they won't do anything about it.
    The product number is MIL-SNRD700-BLK.
    I just went to Sprint and bought their recommended cover and it doesn't effect the keyboard at all. My keys that are messed up are the #1 and #2 lines and the #9 and #0 lines, though the 9 and 0 lines aren't as bad. Do not buy this case.
