So Rare These Days

Not a fancy story, but a rare one these days. My belt clip broke while I was sitting next to my co-worker, and I said, “Well, looks like I’m going to go out and buy a new one.” My friend said, “Are you kidding? Contact OtterBox. They stand by their products.” I said to myself, “yeah, right.” But followed the simple instructions and in just a few days…I’m good to go. Did I share my wonderful experience on Facebook? Yep, and will I forever be a loyal customer. Absolutely positively…Yes! It sounds corny, but every opportunity I have, I will […]

OtterBox Cases

I originally purchased the Defender Series case for my Galaxy 4. The case was exactly what I expected but a little big for me personally and not convenient to carry without a purse. But I was happy to know I had the protection so I kept it for a little over a year. My pet bird got ahold of my phone on the table one evening and started chewing. The great news is my case protected my phone — the case was chewed up but my phone was not damaged! Several months later I had to purchase a new phone […]

Almost Catastrophic

Sixteen inches of snow is coming down and I’m in and out of the plow truck. It’s a 2001 Dodge Ram 2500HD 4WD that weighs about 7300 pounds. As i’m leaving the last stop my Bluetooth tells me the phone was out of range. I turned around and went back to the parking lot and the Bluetooth came back on. I got to where I was parked and saw the phone right in the tire path. It was dirty but worked. I took the OtterBox off, cleaned everything, and found the phone to be still like new and working perfect. […]

18 Hours Burried in The Snow

February 1st 2015, Superbowl Sunday in Michigan, I had just gotten back to my brother-in-laws house after a Superbowl party and was out shoveling my car. We gotten over 12 inches of snow during the Superbowl and 18 inches in total. My phone fell out of my jacket pocket into the snow and I didn’t know. When I got home I realized I didn’t have my phone. I used the ‘Find iPhone’ app and could see it was at his house. It was snowing too hard to go back and get it and he had already gone to bed so […]

Serious Big Drop and Ran Over

Today my significant other and I were leaving the house to run errands. She forgot something in the house, so I went back to get the stuff she had left. I had my hands full when I returned to the car and placed my iPhone (in its OtterBox Defender Series) on the roof of the car. We got about 7 miles from our house when I heard something slam the side of the car. Startled, I looked in the rear view to see my cell phone hit the highway at about 50 MPH. I calmly said, “SH%$!!” We took a […]

OtterBox Survived Trains, Snow and Bitter Cold

A few weeks ago when the Washington DC area had a long stretch of exceptionally bitter cold weather, I found myself waiting on a packed outdoor train platform for more than 30 minutes when my Samsung Galaxy phone slipped out of my grasp. In an agonizingly long second or two, it bounced off the cement platform and fell five feet down onto the rail track bed. You could see the phone laying on the snow and ice, screen side up, just to the side of the rails. That night, after rush hour, I returned to the station to try to […]

Great case. Great service.

I’ve had OtterBox cases before and loved every one of them. I bought the Defender Series case for my Blackberry Q10 last spring and found the fit to be perfect and the protection beyond compare. I can’t tell you how often my phone has hit the pavement. I wear it on my left, clipped to my belt and the bolster of my BMW sport seat often pops it loose. I never worry, though. A couple of months ago, while I was getting into the car, I snapped the belt clip off completely. The case was fine, but the holster wasn’t […]

OtterBox Work Phone Experience

A little while back on a call out to locate water lines for an emergency gas line repair, I had an experience that I wanted to share. I had this bad habit of keeping my phone on my lap and forgot about it when I jumped out of the truck at the scene. We got the lines located and we left. I dropped my supervisor off at her house in the country and went home. As per my usual routine, I went to plug my phone back into the charger but then realized there was no phone. When I got […]

Found My Phone After 34 Days in the Snow.

I “misplaced” my Motorola Moto G phone just before Christmas. I checked the likely locations: under vehicle seats, jacket pockets, etc., but could not find it. Since I primarily use my work cell, I wasn’t too worried over it. Heading out to my truck yesterday (January 29, 2015), I happened to look down, and there was my phone, melted into the ice on my driveway. It was literally frozen in one and a half inches of ice. A recent warm spell had melted the snow and ice enough to expose it. I had driven my truck over and ran my […]

Customer Service

I called about a problem I was having with the box.Within 30 minutes time they shipped another one. I have never, in my entire life, received such superior service. I was shocked and said this can not be true. I waited until it arrived and it knocked me off my feet. I was just one month away from my warranty being out. I thought there would be no way or ┬áthere would at least be lots of problems. Nope, not with them. I will support this company for the rest of my life. I will never be without MY BOX. […]

My OtterBox Clip Broke and I am still happy

I cannot claim to have dropped my protected phone off the empire state building or that it was run over by the buffaloes at a nearby buffalo farm. I had a broken belt clip. Yep, it broke… well at least a little piece came off. The phone was not damaged at all from the fall on the road outside our Big Box store. I had snagged the clip in the seat belt while exiting my truck– An elevated 4×4. That clip was subjected to some major stress as I jumped down. The OtterBox Defender Series case did its job and […]

How OtterBox Saved my Brother’s Life….

My brother and I tend to be rough with our phones, grant you, but what happened was unbelievable. It left us speechless, pale, and laughing scared. We have some family land up in South Carolina that we run up to on the weekends to do some work or upkeep. Two weekends ago, my brother decided to cut down some trees and make a path down to one of the beaver dams. While doing so, his hand slipped from the chainsaw (rather large one), and it went straight for his leg and cut into his pants. Everyone was standing there in […]

Surviving A Fall

I studied Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering in college and for our senior design project we had to design and build a r/c aircraft. We were asked to record video and after a few successful flights, we decided to get some POV footage from the nose of our aircraft. After a few laps of the airfield, we decided to test just how well our aircraft was able to fly, so we went for a barrel roll. Unfortunately the packing tape that was holding the phone on the aircraft was not taped in such a way that it would hold the phone […]

I am a volunteer firefighter. While I was doing some work on my personal truck I placed my iPhone down in it’s OtterBox case on the running board of our fire truck. We received an alarm and away we went, with my phone still sitting on the running board. We navigated over some railroad tracks and hills, which should have easily caused the phone to side off. When we returned to the firehouse I found my phone still sitting on the running boards. I was shocked to find it still sitting there. I guess the rubber surrounding the hard case […]

Very Sturdy

Last Friday at work my Galaxy S5 fell off my forklift and I accidentally ran over it. I picked it up and there was not a scratch on it. The OtterBox took the weight of a 3 ton forklift and all it did was put a few scratches on the protective cover. My phone is still scratch free and functions just fine.
