I have a Verizon iPhone 4 and ordered this from OtterBox before they were out at other retail stores. Fits great with no wiggle room inside. Great feeling case, doesn't feel like it's a fish and wants to jump right out of your hand. Easy access to all ports. The front pieces that protects the screen DOES NOT hinder any finger gestures what-so-ever. My OtterBox has paid for itself already when I had my hands full as I was getting out of the car and simply I forgot it was in my lap... after the solid hit to the cement and heart started beating again, I brought myself to assess the damage. There was NONE! Still works like a charm like it did right out of the box. No cracked screen/glass. The OtterBox is without a mark as well. OtterBox saved the day. I researched my purchase first and was sold when it protected an iPhone from a 23 store drop into concret. (Search YouTube). It's better t protect your investment now or pay more later if it's damaged.

EDIT: This OtterBox Defender still works like a Champ! I did want to update that it works for the Verizon iPhone 4.... NOT the new iPhone 4S. While the iPhone 4S fits in the case, Apple has moved the sensor and the phone will have screen brightness issues. For the iPhone 4S the OtterBox company has released a new Defender series that has a larger opening for the front and rear sensor/camera. It's universal and will work with BOTH iPhone 4 & iPhone 4S on ALL CARRIERS.

I loved the otterbox defender for my iphone 3g but the defender was just way to bulky on all my friends' iphones 4 so I stayed away. Then I saw someone had the COmmuter case for their iphone 4 and it was much more practical, so I got it for myself. I am very Satisfied with it.
The case is a perfect size to me, it fully covers the phone and leaves a 1/8in lip on the front so nothing sits on the screen, instead rests on the sides of the case. The back is all hard plastic so I can easily take the phone in and out of my pocket, along with the top, bottom and sides of the case. While all 4 corners arr softer rubber along with the top lip, therefore the phone is well protected from drops but the soft rubber on the corners still keeps it comfortable in your hands. The headphone jack, charging port and volume buttons are all fully protected with rubber flaps to help keep any liquids or dirt out which i am especially fond of cause I take my phone everywhere. The rear camera and flash have a reinforced casing around them but nothing over them so the camera remains crisp, and the side "silent" button is also left open so can be easily accessed. It comes with a front screen protector but I ordered a ZAGG screen protector which I used and like better.

Be aware that Otterbox has acknowledged a design flaw in the design of the clip that can result in premature breakage. This is COVERED under the Otterbox warranty and if you email their customer service department at,[...] and they will send you an entire new case and clip for your phone. I myself requested a replacement clip from the link shown above and received a new CASE AND BELT CLIP for free. They shipped it FEDEX at their cost and it took only @ 9 or 10 business days to arrive. If you visit the link above you will notice it references the belt clip for the iPhone 3 Defender case. This confused me at first but rest assured, any iPhone 4 Defender case belt clip issues should be reported here also.

Hi, I just got this case yesterday. It's the third one I've tried with my iPhone 4. Otterbox makes fine cases so I expected something nice and was not disappointed. I also had the Commuter and Defender cases for my iPhone 3Gs.

Here are some notes for you:

- The case provides the best protection of the three I've tried. The Apple bumper case is nice but the open back leaves a lot of glass exposed. This one gets the job done while not being too bulky.

- Compared to the iPhone 3Gs Commuter case this one exposes more of the hard plastic surface and less of the rubber. The plastic is textured nicely so gripping is still secure. In all fairness I think I do prefer the design of the 3G/3Gs version.

- The phone will connect (Yeah!) to my Magellan car mount and B&W speakers with this case. It would not connect with the thicker Apple bumper case. I'm also able to get other cables to connect to it that would not connect with the bumper case. The opening for the thirty pin connector is larger on the Otterbox case.

- Putting the screen protector on can be frustrating but I was mostly successful this time. Dust must be avoided at all cost while applying it. Hey Intel, can I use your clean room for a few minutes?

It's a good compromise between protection and bulk. If you had the 3G version you might be a little disappointed because the fit on this one doesn't seem quite as good.

Update (9/2/2010): The reviewer(s) that said the case can be uncomfortable on your ear while making calls was right. If you make a lot of calls this could be rather annoying. I'll post a picture or two of the offending sharp edge. I filed the edge on mine with my Leatherman to smooth it out. That helped a lot.

Regards,
John
