The day I got my iPhone my life changed.
This may seem far-fetched, exaggerated and untrue. But I assure you I am not dramatizing in the slightest. When I try to think about the times before I had an iPhone it just makes me sad.
My phone makes me smarter, on time, more efficient, a wanna-be photographer and a master of multitasking.
I have dropped my lifeline more than 3 times but not more than 10. Every time it suffers an accident, I suffer.
To avoid these difficult events I decided to get a better case. From research and an unofficial survey of random people I run into, the consensus was Otterbox is the best for keeping your phone in one piece. Strong, durable and they have a waterproof case!
So my search begins with Google as many searches do. I’ll be honest, I don’t want to pay 40 dollars for a case. I don’t even want to pay 20 dollars but if it is rather spiffy I just might. When I search for “cheap iPhone 4 cases” the first link I see is sw-box.com.
Sw-box has reasonable prices if you want a bedazzled case or a black and white picture of Steve Jobs on the back of your phone. No offense to the bedazzle lovers but getting an iPhone case is almost like getting a tattoo to me. It is something I will look at constantly and will unintentionally give others an idea of who I am. I don’t want ugly flowers or dolphins frolicking on my phone. I just want something pleasing to the eye and potentially unbreakable for $9.99! This shouldn’t be so hard.
Sw-box, like many other sites I have found, force you to either create an account with them to pay or create a pay-pal account. Shipping isn’t cheap either. I have found it is typically just as much as the case itself! Skip the bubble wrap and save me some cash, it is supposed to be durable anyway right?
At least at applecheaps.com you can search by price range. This was the second link in the search results. For some reason these guys LOVE prints. Want multicolored stars thrown all over your phone cover? You have found the right place. Do you just love that old curtain your grandmother has had since WWII? Perfect, you can get the same outdated print on your phone.
This is out of control. And they are still $14.00. So much for searching in the price range of $1-$15 dollars.
You would think there would be an app for this already. I mean how easy would it be to set up an app that showed you the best, cheapest iPhone cases and provided an easy medium to purchase and ship? Come to think of it I should make that app. Don’t steal my idea please.
So the search goes on. If I find a great site I will let you know. If you find one first let me know!
Where did you get your awesome case?
