Today, I bought an otter box. While setting up my iPhone, I dropped it and it is now shattered. FML

It's a box where you store your otters.

I'll get the super glue, and you get the duct tape. HURRY.

Steve jobs loves people like OP. they make his lively hood.

what in the name of chuck norris' left nut is an otterbox and why Is it more important than your phone

92 - Otter Box is a company that makes really protective covers for mobile devices that saves your phone no matter what kind of fall happens. So he probably broke his iPhone while trying to set up the one thing that would protect it.

I love my otterbox I have repeatedly thrown my phone at the walls and no damage to my phone : > my husband also tosses his around at work to show customers how ahhh-maaayyyyzing the otterbox is

I bet he tosses you around, too, to show how fragile you are.

I wish he would. unfortunately he's not that adventurous......

Otterboxes don't work. I have many friends who have shattered their phones while it was protected by an Otterbox. A better option is a semihard protective cover, because it absorbs the shock of a fall.

To heII with the glue; GET MORE DUCT TAPE!

just got my studio beats by dre. they sound so good with my iPod

How hard do you have to drop an iPhone for it to shatter? I've dropped mine a lot, and the most I've gotten are barely noticeable scratches.

otterboxes don't work? thats funny, I've thrown my phone at our walls in the otterbox's not broken.

its a iphone case dumbass. and **** that chuck norris shit. so yes the protection of the iphone keeps the iphone looking new so in some cases its pretty important.

Was it the cheap $30 one if so they needed the $50 one . Mines paid for itself countless amounts of time .

My BIL dropped his from a silo and it protected his phone. There are different series made for different levels of protection

my otterbox has saved my iPhone SO many times

Amazon sells them for like 20 bucks now so they're not really expensive anymore!

I just got an otter box for my epic 4g! it only costed 23 bucks.

I got the white on white defender for my iPhone 4

just YouTube otter box test, the guy frigging threw his iPhone down the street and it made it, but the one he had was too bulky or I woulda bought it right away >_

# 23: Hey now! *small voice* That's what I thought is was...

I'm here to pick up my otters, do you think I otter buy more than 4?

Exactly... or did OP want to see how durable it was by throwing it against a brick wall? my phone is always in it's otter box, but I've dropped it without and it was fine... maybe if the conditions are just right...

yes but the real issue is "will it blend?"

I've dropped my iPhone a few times, too and it's fine but I know many people with a huge crack in their screen waiting for their discounted upgrade to kick in. (:

I dropped mine from standing height. It landed screen down on my bathroom's tile floor. There were cracks EVERYWHERE! I have an otter box now and have had no problems since.

I bought an otterbox when I got my iPhone. it's still in the box. lol. My screen is still intact. :)

when you say otter box I'm thinking a new otter in a box

Sorry OP. I always drop mine, but I hate the otter box. Now I just replace my screen when it shatters. I got a screen kit from amazon and it was like $5. Pretty cheap, and easy to do.

If it was a 4, op is screwed. Apple made them where you can't take the screens off so you'd have to buy a new one. Clever, right?

Actually, you can remove the screen on the iPhone4.

Ya, if you want to pay $200 at the Apple store. You're better off buying a new phone.

YDI for getting an iPhone, but at least now you can buy another phone.

how does OP deserve it for getting an iPhone?

hthelittleone 10

you deserve all the hell you're going to get for trash-talking the iPhone on an iPhone application

This isn't just an iPhone application. The website was here YEARS before the Apple AND Android apps. /facepalm.

yeah but most people use it on the iphone. i mean really the iphone has a way bigger market share than android. food chain of life: rebecca black < bill gates < casey anthony < batman < steve jobs < chuck norris

75 made me lul. Anyone else?

Are you still under warranty from Apple? If not, you should still go to the Genius Bar and state your case. You might get another one or pay a small fee.

apple's warranty would never cover something like that. they clearly state that water and accidental damage isn't covered.

31, so it covers purposeful damage?

31, u lie to apple and they will fix it for free

31, it's an otter case not the animal you see in the aquarium. They try their beat, but most likely they give you a warning.
