Please Login to Remove!

Does anyone have any comments on just how good the otterbox is to protect a Storm?

Thats what I thought now I have one. Bit of a scandal calling something "Otter" when it's not even slightly water proof.

Having said that I feel the case would be good enough to protect the phone against slight rain and/or splash damage.

I concur, although I am glad they put that on their site... I would be pissed if they didn't and I ordered one.

well i have one but it is realy too bulky and the screen thing doesn't cover the whole screen on the otterbox case..and i don't mean the phone screen..way too bulky for a lady unless she is in construction..this is more a man's case who does alot of outside work...and it may help with splashes but the sides on the screen thing as a small space..
