Unhappy Please help! Can't get Ipod out of case.

I have a 20 GB 2nd Generation Ipod. I recently got an Vaja IVod case for it. I cannot get it out of the case. Can anyone offer any tips or help on removing it from the case? Thank you.

I would imagine you have to break the cling effect of the screen cover first - if the case is a tight fit anyway this will make it difficult to slide the iPod out.
I would suggest a combination of pressing the sides of the case in while pushing or pulling the iPod out - breaking that cling effect is the idea.
You may need an extra pair of hands to prise your iPod out! It obviously likes it in there

Hold It in your left hand and push via the firewire port hole with your index finger on the right hand and pull the ipod with your index finger and thumb on your left hand.

IT should come out with ease.

To semi-permanently break the cling effect, put a thin coating of talcum powder or corn starch on the inside of the screen protector and any other sticking areas. Wipe off any excess. Then put your iPod back in. If it ever starts sticking again, repeat the application.
