I am late getting on the iPhone train but Verizon hacked me off for the last time this weekend. Anyway I switched to AT&T and got an iPhone and today bought a LifeProof case. It cost $80 but the Otterbox was $60-70 don't remember. The Lifeproof is waterproof and all the other shock dust blah blah. But they actually in the instructions tell you to put it together and submerge it for an hour without the phone to make sure it is waterproof. My buddy has one and filmed him swimming with it. Just thought I would pass this on since these phones are crazy expensive and an $80 waterproof case makes all the difference in the world.
