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 […]

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 […]
