I wish I had started with an Otterbox to begin with. This is my third case in two months (one was so cheap it wouldn't stay on, and the other broke into pieces). I highly recommend this case for anyone looking for stability without the need for the bulk of the regular Otterbox case. The silicon sleeve fits snug and the outer plastic case will not budge once in place. There is enough texture to the exterior so it wont slip from your fingers, and it comes in great colors too! Buy this case - you wont be disappointed.

This is the third case I've had for my 3GS, and my first Otterbox product. I actually ordered both the Commuter and the Defender cases from Otterbox, and I returned the Defender. Channeling Jimmy Fallon, I'll list the Pros and Cons for the Commuter case...

Pros:
- Excellent fit. No gaps in the corners, and the two pieces (silicone inner layer + hard outer layer) are perfectly aligned with the buttons/camera/headphone/sync cable openings.
- Looks great. Best looking case I've ever seen on an iPhone.
- Very good protection. Coincidentally, I've dropped my iPhone twice in the past week, and there has been no evidence of impact on the case or the phone itself.
- Lots of color choices
- Not bulky - fits easily in my pocket. This is the key reason that I chose the Commuter over the Defender. The Defender is just too big and bulky. It may offer superior impact protection for abusive users (you know who you are), but I did not like the look/feel of the Defender at all.
- Hard outer shell is slick, and this makes it possible to remove the phone from my pocket without turning my pants pocket inside-out.

Cons:
- Hard outer shell is slick. You may be more likely to drop the phone, and it will slide right off the passenger seat of your car when you make a turn. (ask me how I know)
- More expensive than some other cases

Overall, I highly recommend this Otterbox Commuter case for the 3GS. It's a quality product, and it offers excellent protection for your iPhone.

Another great product from Otterbox. Anytime I am looking for a new protective case for my iPhone, I go to Amazon and search for their Otterbox products. I have received a lot of good comments on it. It isn't really easy to take on and off, but looks great and performs well. Lint doesn't stick to it, which was kind of bothersome with my last cover. I really like the hard cover with the rubber underneath b/c it doesn't scratch your phone and the hard case gave me the feel that I was looking for. You can't go wrong with this one...

This product comes in authentic OtterBox retail packaging. The instructions for installation are included and it's relatively easy. The hardest part is getting the screen protector on correctly. Make sure your iPhone is completely clean and lint free before you start! When you're first sticking the screen protector on, don't put it down all the way until it is centered.

I love the green color. It's a bold lime green, but not too "neon". The green part is hard plastic and the black parts are rubbery. It fits the iPhone 3GS perfectly. It's also less bulky and more stylish than the OtterBox Defender. I almost never drop my phone, but I wanted some protection against nicks and scratches. This case is high in quality and it looks great!

I agree with the other reviews: the rubber cover for the headphone port is a little hard to open. I previously had the OtterBox Impact, but the whole thing is rubbery and lint/dust/sand got stuck all over it. This case is definitely an improvement.

This was easy to snap on & it's much better than the rubbery case they gave me @ sign-up. It slides in & out my purse easily & protects very nicely.

I really, really like this case. Otterbox is a company know for protection mostly due to it's overly protective Defender Series cases. The Commuter Series attemps to strip away and make a slightly less bulky alternative and it SUCCEEDS! I love the gray color with the black, especially on a white iPhone (Extremely stylish). The case has every feature I could wish for: Plastic with silicone inlayer so it doesn't scratch the phone and adds drop protection; Plastic has texture so it doesn't scratch up (like the terrible glossy incase slider); Plugs BUILT IN and connected to the case (no losing them!!!) that cover the dock connector and headphone jack; and a GREAT FEEL in your hands. It even shows off your Apple logo. If you're worried about that, don't be. It's recessed enough that it would be hard for anything to get to it, and if you're really that worried, put a screen shield cut-out over it.

I RECOMMEND THIS CASE AND IT'S MY FAVORITE OF ALL TIME! GET THE GRAY ONE! IT'S FANTASTICALLY STYLISH!

I have an iPhone 3G. I purchased the Otterbox Commuter Case in green for iphone 3G/3Gs 8 months ago. I have loved it from the start. The installation of the screen protector was fairly easy for my first time applying one. The case went on without a hitch. With a little adjustment it fit in all the right places. The black cover is rubbery and is great for gripping. The green cover is a harder material and holds the black part in place. The two covers come up and around the front of the phone protecting the screen while the phone is face down. I love that the rocker switch and the top button are covered but not hindered. The phone jack and the USB charger port can be covered when not being used so that no gunk or lint can get in the way. The phone gets a lot of use and the case has not come apart nor torn. It does not hinder the function nor the phone's reception.
