    I'm very interested in ordering a set of skins from "iCarbon.com". However, the fine print on their website says that my At&T sim tray will be covered by the rear product. Question:: does this REALLY make any difference to me? Another way of asking is: why would I care and how often would I need to extract the card anyway?? Thanks BJ, Sacramento

    only matters if you need to take it out. You could lay the skin on the table, mark where the sim slot is, and then cut that out of the skin.

    The skin manufacturer is just too lazy to maintain a "3G version" of the skin with the slot already cut.

    Yea, I hear ya...why inventory two products when you can have a single and a disclainer?! I'd probably do the same thing. BJ

    Cut it and then put it on the product. Can't be that hard.

    Best rear skin is Bodyguardz armor back skin. You can get it for less than $20 on the internet.

    OR... you can get back case like Speck SmartShell that snap to your ipad. Price is mid $20ish

    I don't think it's laziness. The iPad 2 is still relatively new, so a lot of new iPad 2 accessories are still coming out a little bit at a time. I would say in another month or so, we might see pre-cut rear iPad 2 skin protectors.

    My Bodyquardz rear skin has a hole cut out for the 3G tray!

    I would use this one on mine, however, I am looking for one that does not require the use of liquid to apply it. I have a power support skin on the back of my iPhone 4 that went on dry, but PS doesn't make one for the iPad yet.

    I was worried about the wet application too, but I was really please how well it went on. Considering it was the first skin I have ever applied it went on really easily and any bubble came out easily...... I can't say the same for the front though which still looked horrible after a week, so I took it off.

    iCarbons now have a version with the sim tray cutout. I guess they did not back in April when this thread was created.

    True, although my reply was in reference to the "lazy" comment that was made yesterday.
