    My dad has the defender for his droid and his charging port seems a little loose. Do any of you experience your iphone 4/4s charging port becoming loose? Like when you plug it in to charge or sync the connection is a little loose?

    I've not experienced an issue with either the Otterbox Defender, or the Commuter. I've used them on both the iPhone 4 and 4S.

    This is my experience, I have used both on several iPhone 4s and never had a problem.

    Ok. It was probably just a faulty unit that the person had.

    I now have the iPhone 5 and went to the Otterbox Denfender and it puts a large amount of pressure on the lightning cable and that does scare me. It looked at times that it was in crooked and so I do not use it anymore.

    I think that's what I must've saw too. What case are you using now?

    I went with the Seidio Obex, slim, water and dust proof, with a belt clip. I really love it. Not cheap, but well built
