Just to followup, I got this case and have tried it a couple of different times. It's a very nice case, good quality leather, etc., as advertised.

The PROBLEM: You can't get it to slide back in the case without first punching the strap down! The soft case just crumples if you try without that and I end up mashing all kinds of buttons on the outside of the phone trying to get it in the case. If you stick 3 fingers down inside the case and push the strap down first, it goes in fine.

That's not acceptable - the phone ought to slide IN as easily as it slides OUT! Any comments?
