Just curious as to what you feel correlates this problem with the Otterbox Commuter?
I have an otterbox commuter case and an iPhone 4s. While I've had my commuter case break on me (promptly replaced by otterbox -- THANKS!), I haven't had the problem you're describing. But I wonder why you think it has to do with the case you're using. Besides having physical contact with the phone, I can't see how it would be any different than saying "Has anyone else had their iphone 4s speaker quit after getting their nails done?"
Agreed. I had a commuter case for years with no issues. Without knowing more the OP is having bad luck.nah, the case couldn't have done anything
i also have a communiter and my iphone 4s is fine ... *touchwood*
Does the case have a cutout for the speaker? Or some kind of foam shield in the case? Perhaps it's defective.It seems interesting that I have had the same problem with 2 phones & the problems only began after I switched from the defender to the commuter. I realize it could just be a coincidence but I just wondered if anyone else had the same problem
Wasn't being a jerk. This is the internet and a lot of the tone is lost when communicating via the internet. If I wanted to be a jerk, I would have said nothing and left your thread at the bottom of the pile (sinking fast), unanswered. Instead, I bumped it up to the top and asked a LEGITIMATE question as to why you correlate the speaker not working with the commuter case. As others have agreed -- it's hard to find the connection between a broken speaker and the type of case you are using (unless that case inherently comes in direct contact with the speaker per design though I don't know of any cases lilke that, just hypothetical).No need to be a jerk about it. This is the 2nd time it's happened so I figured it could have something to do with the case
It was the last comment about "...speakers stop working after getting their nails done" that came across as snide. But no, the speaker didn't quit immediately, although I think that doesn't necessarily mean anything either. I can see how what I said implied that the commuter cases are crap but that isn't what I meant. Sorry to call you a jerk, the comment about the nails rubbed me the wrong way.
