Ever thought about purchasing protection for your cherished iPhone 4s? After you perform an iPhone 4s jailbreak, you still need to do everything within your means to protect your jailbroken iPhone 4s. Although you can restore your iPhone if you brick it, Apple’s policy forbids you to return your iPhone for repair or pretend that it is under warranty. Cases have become an object of customization today, a very different mindset from a few years ago when cases were only valued for their function (to protect smartphones). Six new iPhone cases are presented for your selection and enjoyment:
- Case-Mate rPet
- Patriotic Otterbox Defender
- Patriotic Speck
- Hex Code Wallet
- Case-Mate Spiderman
The Case-Mate rPet is an environmentally-friendly iPhone case, made out of 100% recycled material. This means that the case can be recycled when you can no longer use it to protect your iPhone. For environmental lovers, you can have an iPhone accessory that not only protects your phone, but also preserves the environment. The rPet case comes in the color green and has a neon green back cover to allow your green to be seen. The Case-Mate rPet costs $30 and can be found online at Amazon.com and the Case-Mate website (case-mate.com/rpet/).
The Patriotic Otterbox Defender is a perfect gift to purchase, seeing that it is still Independence Week (though Independence Day has already passed). The Defender case comes in the faded, American flag colors red, white, and blue, made of polycarbon, with a screen protector included in the case. This protector case allows you to celebrate your smartphone while honoring the American principle of national defense. The case itself costs $59.95, so think wisely before you purchase this case.
The Patriotic Speck provides a small flag on the back of the case and a majority-solid cover across the case itself. Patriotic Specks can be ordered to celebrate alternative countries in addition to America. You can purchase an iPhone case with the following countries on the case cover:
- New Zealand
- Hong Kong
One such patriotic speck case features a Japanese flag and Samurai warrior for $41.95. Another American case features a bear, eagle, and wolf for the same price of $41.95. From the two phone prices and features, it seems that the Patriotic Speck phone will cost you $41.95.
Patriotic Specks can be purchased online at Zazzle.com. If you have an iPod and want to purchase a Patriotic Speck case, look no further than iPodtouch4gcase.com for your case needs. IPad owners can purchase their speck cases from Zazzle.com, the same place as iPhone owners. The Speck is steep in terms of its price (similar to the Otterbox Defender), so you must decide whether or not you can afford the price for the protection.
Skanz iPhone cases provide you with the ability to social network by way of your protective case. If you want to connect your friends with your Skanzsite (similar to your Facebook wall), sign up for the Skanz social network, connect your network site to the QR code on the back of your phone case, and voila! When friends take pictures of your phone, your site will automatically appear—linking your friends to you. With the Skanz iPhone cover, you can scan your way to new connections with new people. The Skanz iPhone cover comes in many customizations (sports teams included), including “semi-flex,” “flexible,” and “combo” styles, and costs $19.99 at the Skanz website. You can also purchase the Skanz cover at Toys-R-Us, EBay, and Amazon.com.
The Hex Code Wallet allows you to carry a credit card, driver’s license, or identification card along with your iPhone. The purpose of the wallet cover is to serve as both a wallet (to store money) and a holder for your iPhone—preventing the need to stuff your pockets with two bulky items when you head out the front door to an event or restaurant. Its convenient function comes in three major colors (white, black, and British tan) with an elastic band that keeps your phone from falling through the case and out of your pocket onto the ground. The Hex Code also provides three interior pockets as ideal places to store several cards if you need them. This will come in handy for the corporate executive who must flash his ID badge to gain access to company rooms and files, the policeman or private detective who needs a badge to get access to murder and robbery scenes, as well as the teacher who wants to carry a briefcase to school but does not want to store his or her possessions within the case.
The Hex Code Wallet iPhone case costs $40-$50 and can be found at EBay, Zappos, Nordstrom, Amazon.com, and the Apple Store (iPhone 4s cases).
As if your iPhone 4s case could not become more and more functional, you can now pretend that your iPhone case is a spiderweb weaver! Case-Mate has also emerged with a Spiderman case cover for the iPhone that is sure to make Spiderman lovers happy. Emerging at the same time as the new Spiderman movie, the cases come with drawings of Spiderman in various scenes throughout the Spiderman movies. Case-Mate put out a Spiderman announcement this past week, holding a contest for those who wanted to win a free Spiderman case. The deadline to enter the contest expired as of yesterday (July 6), but the Spiderman collection should ease your mind.
