Hello forum members and guests, I just wanted to share a otterbox defender story with you all. First off, one of my buddies purchased his first iPhone two months ago. He's always been bad about dropping his devices, so I gave him a spare otterbox defender I had. Well last night we was both leaving work and he'd left his iPhone on the top of his Camaro. While he started down the highway he had heard a couple of loud thumping noises on his roof. It was at this moment, he'd realized he left his phone up there and he was sure it was shattered. He immediately stopped and ran back down the highway to search for his device. When he finally found it in the middle of the highway, the case looked mangled. The silicone was peeled back and the middle hard shell was partially open. When he picked up the device, he noticed the case was ok except for a chip in the bottom of the case next to the speaker. Well believe it or not the iPhone 4 was completely unharmed. Not a single scratch was found on the phone itself. This amazed the both of us. He was traveling 65 mph down the highway and the phone just flew off and went tumbling all over the road. The case came out fine and more importantly, the iPhone survived without a scratch. I just thought I'd share this story with the forum, and maybe help a few people out when it comes to deciding on a durable case. ! I'll put pictures of the device and case up later tonight! 8) Thanks for reading!
