We always recommend OtterBox protective cases for iPhones. We see a lot of cracked screens in our office, but rarely one that has been protected by an OtterBox case. You will find that on occasion, with wear and tear, that the skin will rip in some spots. No worries, OtterBox has an excellent replacement program, just go to their website www.otterbox.com, select ‘Warranty’ and you can submit your request. We found we had a replacement in our hands within a week.
