    I'm sure if you buy enough of them you can eventually mix and match em But you are right, it *would* be nice.
    Lol, right...that could get a wee bit costly pretty quick!

    I bought the Otterbox defender for my iphone 4 back in October 2010. I used it until August 2011. I started having issues with the silicon getting too loose that it wasn't fitting snug and would come undone a lot in my pocket. I called Otterbox customer service to complain and they were apologetic and to my surprise sent me a new Otterbox defender. However, this one was different. It was more snug with the silicon. The sku that is on it has "uni". So basically the replacement they sent me is the Universal Otterbox defender. I sold my iphone 4 3 weeks ago and I kept the case. My iphone 4S fits fine on the Universal Otterbox defender. While Otterbox specifically sells a version for the iphone 4S that has bigger cutouts for the camera and flash and proximity sensor, my iphone 4s in the universal version shows no issues.

    I was wondering if you had any issues talking to people on the phone, I heard some issues with the proximity ect.

    Your reply is greatly appreciated!

    @derk: I am unable to send PMs because I only have 3 posts (including this one) I actually made this account just so I could talk to you! LOL

    To answer your PM:

    I have a white iPhone 4S
    I want to use the Universal Otterbox for the iPhone4 (Pink and White)

    I REALLY do not like the colors of the iPhone 4S cases

    I heard that the iPhone 4 cases are not compatible with the iPhone 4S because of a proximity sensor? They say that when you are in a call that the light does not go off and your cheeks can press buttons on the screen

    I made a thread about this maybe you can help me in that thread so we can communicate better

    I cant even post a link to the thread because I have too few posts !

    I love the Defenders as well. I am not using one at the moment because I usually carry mine in my back pocket and it's easier to slip in and out with a Speck Candyshell on it, but the Defenders are great. And you can't beat their customer service. I just wish they would offer a customization option, where you could select your own colors for the hard plastic and the silicone. That would be really cool.
    Check eBay for "hybrids" where they mix and match ... Seen the defender and commuters that way

    Ok, I am only going back and forth between Otterbox defender and commuter. That's 2 cases to your 4 cases!

    I was a fan of otter box until I found out about lifeproof. I mean can any of you guys using the otter box take your phone down to the beach and take it snorkeling with you? Cause I can and did and while I wasn't filming underwater wildlife in 1080p hi def I was listening to music. Talk about awesome.

    I'm really not worried that I can't take my phone snorkeling or swimming with me. Do I take mine to the beach-yes in an aqua pac. And that works for me.

    When I'm swimming having a good time with my family I don't want to have to worry about my phone.

    Some people do not like the life proof. I'm one of those people that absolutely do not like it. Again, I'm all about the OB defenders and speck cs cases.

    The Commuter series is by far my favorite Otterbox. And I've had the Reflex and Defender as well.

    I had a awesome time with my family while swimming and didn't worry about my phone once. I also got some great underwater footage of my kids and some sea creatures. My lifeproof's not bulky like the otterbox and i would never ever go back to the otterbox cases but each to their own as my mum used to say.

    I had the first Otterbox Defender with the 2 openings for camera/flash and the 2 openings for the prox sensor and earpiece. I eventually gave it to my brother-in-law. Today, I picked up the redesigned one with the one large opening on the front and one large opening on back. I love it. It feels as though the silicone is tighter which is a great thing!!

    Yes I have been using the Commuter all week. Once I figured out how to re-apply the screen protector that comes with it, I like it a lot. It's hard to put it on perfectly without dust or bubbles not going away.

    I love my 4S Defender on my white iPhone 4. I feel so comfortable letting my kids play games on my phone and not worrying that they'll drop it or whatever. It fits perfectly fine and my screen protector is fine also. I have heard of people using a box cutter to remove their screen protector and just using an invisi-shield... maybe that would be your solution?? I will never switch.
    Have to agree - if you have kids and they use your phone, this is THE case. Gives me peace of mind.

    I have the lifeproof case and love it. Their customer service is top notch! I am
    Not brave enough to go swimming with it but I am comfortable knowing that if it falls into a body of water I am safe.
