    Tell me, do you own a Otterbox Defender for your iPhone?

    If you do, does the black rubber part collect a lot of lint, etc?

    I would hate to say a LOT of lint, but because the Silicon is a bit "tacky" it does attract some. Of course it also depends upon the pants I wear. Jeans tend to attract more lint than Khakis do.

    That's why you should not let your Dog use your phone!

    They give you the belt clip because its not meant to be a case to be carried in a pocket. Rubbery cases dont do well in a pocket, no matter what brand they are. I do have some dust on mine from it being used often and placed on any type of surface, but I wouldn't use "lint" and "lot" in a description of mine. try a wet papertowel and carefully rub the rubber?

    Mine has been getting less and less lint\dust\hair since I've been using my belt clip. But, I only started using my belt clip when I received the new and improved belt clip

    mine had a lot on it when i had it, but i think its just the material used. the commuter has the same problem. it also tends to get "oily" it seems. i was taking mine off every few days and washing it in soap and water to help out, this in turn however made it "tacky" again! LOL i couldnt win for losing!

    The Otterbox for my iPhone 4 is a lot better than the ones offered on the 3Gs/3GSs. It has a different texture to it and is a lot less "sticky." However, some lint does get attached. I just get passed it because of the protection it offers for the phone.

    Did you buy this new belt clip or did Otterbox replace it? I also have the Defender.

    Are you guys talking about the Defender for 3G/3GS? or i4?

    I always use my belt clip, so I don't have the problem with lint...I have never put it in my pocket.

    I have my iPhone 4 two weeks and my Otterbox Defender case one week, and use the holster. I still get lint and cat hair on the Silicon case. I am wondering if Armour All or something like that would help.
