Otterbox Defender Iphone 4
I finally got my Otterbox today!!!! I've had my iphone for 2wks now and i've been scared to death there's so much glass on it. Now I feel like confident and it fits in my pocket which is a big plus. If you need ultimate protection i got to recommend this to you.

Yes I got the defender series for my iPhone. I was going to get the commuter series because I was afraid that the defender would not fit in my pocket but I was able to fit it in with my trouble so I was well please with it!! Excellent protection in my pocket SCORE!

I got my Defender yesterday. I love that my ip4 is protected since I'm a klutz BUT.......
This case attracts dirt like crazy. I wear makeup and I'm leaving fingerprints even if I think my fingers are clean. My skin is a bit dry and this case shows that too. Dust? This thing is a magnet!
The 3GS case was a smooth rubber. This has texture so everything- and I mean ever-y-thing sticks to it.
The rubber flaps are a pain in the *** to get back in place.
Maybe that just takes getting used to but the dirt factor is quite annoying. I keep wiping the case down with my eyeglass fabric.

Defender is the way to go
I had one on my 3GS and have had one on my 4 for about 2 weeks. If your concern is protection, not glamor, it's the way to go. As far as attracting dirt and fingerprints, I keep it in my pocket or laying around the car and have had no problem with lint. And really no problem with fingerprints. I get some french fry oil on the screen now and then, but it readily wipes off with a damp cloth. The only thing that takes getting use to is buttoning up the little flap on the bottom that covers the dock connector. You have to line it up just right before it fastens tightly.
As far as the reviewers who complain about loose fits, I haven't experienced that but then I don't take it off and put it back on. Perhaps it stretches if you do a lot of that.

I have the Otterbox Defender for my iPhone 4. I'm new to the iPhone 4. I have only had it for about 2 weeks now. I have had the Otterbox's for my Blackberry. I see what everybody means about the outer ruber piece becoming loose. I also hate the holster for it. I hate how it sits sideways and is so hard to get in and out of the case. Is it just me or is anyone else complaining about parts of it? I wish they came out with a belt holster for it that was similar to the 3GS.

I just wish AT&T would get off their high horse and get rid of the that cheap ballistics case... I loved that they carried the 3Gs defender because when I had a problem they would replace it right their.
But since they won't carry the ip4 defender you have to go through otter box, not that I'm complaining the Otterbox customer service people are awesome, but it takes aloooooong time for them to ship especially on the holsters which are back ordered

I got the Defender a couple months ago. I wasn't a huge fan of it. I suppose it's okay if you carry your phone in a bag or purse or so... but they are just too hefty to keep in my pocket all the time. Plus, the pocket covers got really annoying, always popping out.
