OtterBox Impact Series Sleeve For The iPhone 3GS

The Impact Series line of cases by OtterBox provides effective protection against bump and shocks that your Apple iPhone 3G S might experience during an average day. The case has specially designed inner corners that help dissipate the force of an impact away from the iPhone 3G S for added protection.

So, you just got your new iPhone 3GS and you need something to cover and protect it. What do you do? That is where Otterbox comes in with a protective skin for the Apple iPhone 3G/3GS. Much like the others in the Otterbox Impact Series this protective case comes well equipped to handle all of the bumps and scrapes that happen on a typical day. With its rubberized texture it insures a solid grip on the phone without losing the iPhone's functionality. A new addition to the package is a protective film to cover the screen. This protective case comes in two colors, white or black, the latter of which we are looking at today.

It's hard to tell but the screen protector appears to "fog" up the screen a bit. Am I imagining this?

After visiting 5 AT&T wireless stores I finally found an Otterbox case but it's vastly diffrent than the one reviewed and over twice as expensive.

When I asked the AT&T rep if they had the rubber only cases he told me that they had been recalled due to a defect. Nate, can you confirm that there was a recall on these and if so why?

I've asked my contact at Otterbox about that just now and will let you know what I hear. Not sure how or why a silicon case would be recalled as I've had zero issues with mine. My guess is that he was trying to get you to buy one they had in stock.

haha... Otterbox got a good laugh out of that e-mail. Here is their public response:

No, this is not accurate. We are still selling the Impact™ Series case; there has not been a recall.


Got to love AT&T stores!

Where can I go to purchse this locally then? Or is this an internet only item.

I've been to 3 Best Buys, 5 AT&T Stores, the Apple Store at West County Mall, and 3 AT&T Wireless Affiliate stores. None of them have the Impact Series. The AT&T stores only stock the much more expensive Defender cases which are huge and in fact cost as much as the phone itself.

I'd just order one online... Here in Missouri we usually can't find many items from companies like Otterbox.
