I stopped for lunch the other day and afterwards placed my phone on the roof of my car to take off my jacket. Of course I got into the car and left the phone on the roof. I was doing about 70 m.p.h down the freeway when I heard something bounce along my roof. I looked in the rearview to see my phone doing cartwheels down the freeway, where it then jumped up and slammed into the grill of a pick up truck behind me. The phone shot up and into the median…..smashing for sure!! The next day I got […]

I was Amazed!!

I left for work at 5 a.m. and it was still dark. The lights in my garage door had gone out, so I turned the flashlight on my phone so I could see. I also had a bag of trash in my hands, so I put my phone on top of my car (flashlight still on but facing down) walked around the side of the garage, dumped my trash and promptly got into my car and started off to work. The road to the freeway has a speed limit of 55 m.p.h, so of course I was going 60. All […]

Phone was Ran Over by a Few Cars

I was doing a job that was dealing with traffic. I was on my phone when a few cars had pulled up to the closure I was working at, so I went to put my phone on the clip. Five minutes rolled by and I realized I couldn’t find my phone. I checked every pocket, my clip, everywhere! So I started to back-track where I could’ve dropped it at. When I looked down the street I could see my phone being ran over. I jogged over there, praying my screen wasn’t cracked or broken after the last car drove pasted, […]

OtterBox Rocks

I purchased my first smartphone (I guess it’s called) about a week ago. Got home & took my Defender Series out of the box to assemble everything. All was going well until I got to the screen protector. Being new to this I had all kinds of problems putting it on. When I did finally get it on, I couldn’t get all the bubbles out of it and then realized it wasn’t just air but I guess I got some dirt on it and it was pretty ugly –I couldn’t get rid of the spots. I contacted OtterBox to see […]

Drop of Death!

A week after I got my new iPhone I dropped it down a crane shaft on the 9th floor at work. Half an hour later I found it on the 6th floor out of the case about 20 feet from the shaft. Everything looked okay, so I put it all back together and 4 years later the same phone and OtterBox are still working great. I can see why OtterBox offers such a great warranty.

I Can’t Believe my Phone Still Works!

I’m a police officer and was working in the aftermath of a snow storm last week. I was out of my car at an intersection, where we were waiting on a tow truck to pull a truck out of the ditch. My Samsung Galaxy S4 was in an OtterBox Defender Series which was clipped to my duty belt. I didn’t realize that it had fallen off my belt until I was a mile down the road. When I got back to the intersection, there was a snow plow truck clearing snow from the intersection. My heart sank… I figured my […]

Through a snowblower and still working!

New England has had a huge amount of snow this year. My Fiance works at Cape Cod Dairies and he has had to shovel vast amounts of snow. He had just finished pushing some snow off the roof when he briefly took his phone out of his pocket to check a message. He replaced the phone back into his pocket in his coveralls. My fiance dropped his cell phone (in an OtterBox case) into a snow bank and without knowing it, sucked it up into the snow blower and the phone crashed against the building… The phone is perfectly fine. […]

Best warranty service in North America?

My OtterBox Defender Series broke– the movable portion of the belt clip. I followed the instructions on the warranty page, sent the photo as requested, and had a replacement by FedEx in four days! Best customer service ever.

Great Product!

I am an elevator mechanic in NYC. I was at work this past Tuesday, and accidentally dropped my iPhone 5 down the shaft way. I have an OtterBox Defender Series case on the phone. It fell 12 stories and I assumed it was done. I was wrong. The clip was destroyed, the rubber outer case and screen saver were scratched but my iPhone was undamaged. My coworkers and I were shocked. I am a customer for life, great product.

I Love OtterBox

I would just like to say that this is the best kind of case money can buy. I have had a total of 14 of these cases and I suggest buying the case before even buy your next phone and keeping it in the case until getting rid of the phone.

Very Satisified!

Recently, I was on an outing with my four year-old son. I was carrying him, my iPad and a beverage that we hadn’t finished. We got to our vehicle, and I placed my iPad on the roof of my car while I strapped my son into his car seat. As we were discussing where we would be going next, I climbed out and got into the driver seat and started to drive off. Down the road we went, making a turn onto the interstate highway. Started traveling approximately 55 MPH when I heard a thud hit the rear deck of […]

OtterBox for Life

I got my iPhone 5S three years ago. After much research, I decided on the OtterBox Defender Series as I work in a manufacturing facility. On the second day of having my new case I was walking along and realized that my phone was not in my belt clip. I had not quite gotten the hang of clicking it in place and my phone had fallen on the floor about 75 feet behind me. As I started walking towards my phone, already nervous about dropping it on concrete, I saw a fork lift with a pallet of parts heading towards […]

High Drop

I recently dropped my phone from the highest point on a famous roller coaster in Vegas. I wasn’t supposed to have it in my hands anyways, but when it fell I thought there is no way I would ever find it again. And should I be lucky enough to find it, there would definitely be no possibility of it being in one piece from that hight. Ten mins later someone called my wife’s phone from my number claiming they found my phone– I could not believe my luck! I got my phone back with a little dust on the cover […]

iPhone Survives 45 Foot Drop to Concrete Floor.

So I’m a UPS driver. Everything we use takes abuse. From our bodies to our hats, jackets, boots, shoes and our devices, everything wears out in half the time it would take a normal working person to ruin these items. One day I’m entering an elevator on my route in Brookline, Massachusetts. I fumble my iPhone 5C, in its OtterBox case, and it falls into the gap between the elevator floor and the fourth floor, into the elevator shaft where it falls 45 feet to a concrete bottom. I bought this phone 36 days ago. I retrieved the phone today. […]

Another Functionality Test

So I discovered just how durable the Defender Series OtterBox cases are by involving it, and myself in a motorcycle accident. I was just leaving work, and was heading home on a rarely-traveled road just as the sun was rising. It being Florida, there were lots of bugs flying around along with the morning fog that had started burning off. So, I was traveling along this road and came upon three sets of railroad tracks. I’ve been down this road several times before, so I knew the road conditions. I, however, didn’t expect to get slammed by tons of bugs […]
