I was super-nervous about switching from my indestructible Razr to an iPhone, since everyone I know with one seems to break theirs. So getting this was key, it handles drops no problem and makes it easier to grip the phone. However, the headphone jack issue is kind of a pain, and the lever for turning the ringer on and off has started acting up after only a month. I haven't taken the time yet to figure out what's wrong, but let's just say, the phone's not in the case right now. It's good for going out on the mountain, but maybe not for everyday use.
