iPhone 4 / 4S Commuter Series Case
Some friends and I went on a long hard hike. Afterwards saying good bye's, we were taking our group photos at the cars. Stupidly, I laid my iPhone 4s face down the the rear roof of my CR-V and forgot it was there. I drove on heavily curvy backroads and in some instances at speeds up to 65 mph..... for 23 miles.
Upon arrival at my home, I couldn't find my phone and in a smack on the forehead moment remembered leaving it on the roof of my car, at the hiking site, in sprinkling rain. With the aid or a fast thinking friend and a find your iPhone app, we located the phone! Still operable and sending out a beacon! Upon arrival, I shuddered to look. Laying face up on the side of the road was my fully functioning phone nary a scratch.. Not a ding!
It was protected in a OtterBox Commuter case that has already taken it's share of abuse and guess what? The case has 2 small cracks and some scrapes but still fits! I called OtterBox to share this story and the super nice lady further made my experience delightful! A company committed to full customer service! I'm SOLD! I fully believe the rubberized inner membrane kept the phone from sliding off my roof all those miles. If the Commuter does this well, what's the Defender capable of?

Otterbox Commuter Series Case for iPhone 4S
I've had my iPhone 4S Otterbox'd since I purchased it. If it weren't for the case I probably would have been through five iPhones by now. This thing is super rugged and has protected my phone during dozens of drops ranging anywhere from off the side of my bed to down a flight of stairs. It will definitely add a little bulk to the phone but I can deal, and you should, too, if you want to keep your expensive smart phone in good working order. I will say that after about a year and who knows how many drops I replaced the Otterbox with a new one. The corners had taken too many hits and the plastic had chipped away in places.
Bottom line: I definitely recommend this and any other Otterbox products.

I have several Commuter Series cases, because I like the variety! I've started to mix and match the silicone cases with the different color plastic shells. I agree with those who said the white gets dingy, so I took the white silicone part off and replaced it with black. It looks awesome with the pink plastic case! Additionally, it's durable. I have had a few cracks, but Otterbox's customer service is spectacular and responds immediately, honoring the warranty. I couldn't be more pleased with the product!
