The frame is stainless steel. That phone looks like it was either smashed or run over.

Relax, it's alright. Be thankful it was not your phone.

I mean, if his phone wasn't in the case, MAYBE it would crack a bit from the fall. But I mean its SHATTERED.

Any comments? Ideas? This was just weird!

Here are pics of the device, if you want pics of the Otterbox I can get those too.

The device even BENT a bit...

The back was fine...

So, I'm assuming he can just go to Apple. Not sure how it works for him. I have insurance on my phone (Blackberry Bold 9930), and I just call insurance/Verizon and I get a new phone shipped immediately.

Any help would be appreciated.

And again, maybe he just got unlucky. It's definitely plausible for something like that to happen if it just fell the wrong way...

Also... 'food' drop?

I dropped my iPhone 4 in a speck head candy case (or rather my son did) from a shopping cart and the screen shattered granted its not an otter box but it shouldn't have happened. Thank God my iPhone 5 is on its way. Sooooon I won't have to worry about this piece of crap!

It may hard to believe but the exact thing happened my iPhone 5 which was also in an otterbox defender. Mine fell from less than 2 feet. Frankly it shocked me. Everybody I showed it to was amazed.
So believe me it happens although it may have been a freak event. I probably will replace the otter with a life case.
