Otterbox Defender Case for BlackBerry Storm


This is the perfect product for those, like me, that can easily destroy a phone without even trying. I use it with my new Storm and would definitely recommend it. The only problem I have is that it is not easy to place into the holster. It is the...

Practically indestructible. Seals phone unit almost completely, keeping moisture and dirt out

Not easy to put phone into holder

Must Have


This case is a life saver. I will never buy another phone again without buying an Otterbox with it. Dont be fooled by the cheap ones. This is money well spent. And I couldnt find one cheaper than 50 bucks for my phone at any retail locations.

Great case!


iPhone 4s fits perfectly in case. Protection is excellent

Headphone jack access is a little small, speaker plug had too big of a base to fit in properly

Expensive but worth it

Product Specifications

The OtterBox for iPhone Defender series is unlike any case we've made in the past! While your touch screen is covered by a patented thin membrane, it still remains fully usable through the case. Not only that, but all ports remain accessible through convenient silicone plugs. Sync and charge your phone right through the case! Included with the case is a holster style belt clip for carrying convenience. This case offers bump, drop and shock protection. The only feature not usable through the case is the silence switch.
