    My husband has an iPhone 5, which he got from work! His otterbox defender as is falling apart and past the warranty. He doesn't want to pay full price for a new one because his phone is old and in all truth, he's afraid spending money will jinx it! 🙄

    So we're looking for the most "economic" option. I'm thinking just replacing the outer shell might be an option but they are really expensive at Otterbox! So suggestions would be appreciated!

    Create a WTB (want to buy) thread in the marketplace section seeking either a used Otterbox Defender or its outer shell. A member may offer one that's economically viable for you.

    I would try to find the old version that has the home button cover. It's what I have on my old 5. If you can't find a used one like that, Amazon has new ones for the 5 for $23. They're different from the old style. Some had issues with the protective screen not fitting flush with the phone's screen. It was hit or miss. But Otter will back it up.
