True, but I never dropped my phone. Maybe once. And I heard you can bring in your cracked phone to Apple and they would replace it if it's still under warranty.

"heard" and can are two very different things. I highly doubt apple would warranty damage incurred from use/wear/tear...kind of like bmw paying for a cracked windshield incurred from rock chip damage...

Apple does. You break your phone and its under warranty they will replace it.

Great customer service

I ordered my 4s case from case-mate.com. I got the DIY tough version and uploaded a picture from my honeymoon onto the case. I think it came out very well. There was a small rip in the silicone shell it came with, I emailed them about it and got a response 3 hours later, and they are already sending me a replacement sleeve. The part with the photo is hard plastic and snaps onto the silicone sleeve around the phone.

The authentic ones are pretty good, and spot-on fitment-wise. But, they are expensive.

The Magpul Field case fits the 4S, but the cutout for the vibrate switch is slightly off, but not enough to affect usability. The volume button covers are close enough they work fine.

I love my element case. I have the Ion4 of the new line. Cost $50. The thing is fantastic. Saved me from multiple hard drops.

Really want the vapor pro in red/black with the carbon fiber back but couldnt bring myself to spend $150

I don't have the Pro version, rather the original one

I dunno. I don't have the 4s. I did notice that the Vapor did reduce my reception a little, but it hasn't affected my GPS.
