My iPhone Otter Box Story
I wanted to share a pretty remarkable story with my faithful readers and those of you that are first time visitors. This is a story about an iPhone 4S and it's protective case, the Otterbox. The moment I purchased my iPhone 4S I decided to also purchase a case for it. I had purchased an Otterbox Defender case for my previous iPhone 3g and was very pleased with it so it was a no brainier to go ahead and also purchase one for my new iPhone 4S. Sometime later I was operating a man lift. My sister-in-law needed to make a phone call and so I let her use my phone. After she was done she placed the phone in her pocket and forgot about it. About 20 minuets later as I was driving the man lift I looked back and there, in its tracks, sat a miserable looking iPhone in it's crumpled Otterbox case. It had fallen out of my sister-in-law's pocket right into the path of the man lift.
My first impression was that the phone was crushed. In fact, the lift I was driving was almost 16,000 pounds of solid steel.
As I got out of the lift and came closer, my fears were confirmed when I saw the damage that had befollen my iPhone 4S and it's case.
As I picked it up I didn't notice the cracked screen that I expected to see. I began by taking the case apart. So far the phone looked intact.
After a closer inspection I noticed that the Otterbox case was scuffed pretty good but the phone did not have a scratch on it. I was amazed.
I called Otterbox to tell them the story and how amazed I was that the Otterbox protected my phone. Near the end of the conversation the rep. said; "Well, I am going to amaze you a little more. Your Otterbox case has a lifetime warranty on it regardless of how it was broken."
And so it was that a few days later my new Otterbox Defender Case arrived.
I think that the Otterbox case will always be my case of choice for the future.
