Nothing confirmed. Australia.

Gonna soon visit a shop which is selling bulk otterbox cases (for various brands), including iPhone3GS (same era as n900). The seller doesn't seem interested in checking for me. There's also a couple flea markets, I should visit.

mike727, dear friend. through the search engines write that the site has a bad reputation and rating.

You can buy one for me If there is find an extra? I'll pay later. I guarantee, as I have been looking for this case for a long time. If that, I'm from Russia and I'll pay the mail.

Any news with CellularCountry?
_________

Was the Otterbox only available in this style of packaging?
Does anyone remember packaging ever looking different to this?



No "Defender" branding / bulkier packaging, was there?

That looks nothing like what the otterbox packaging looks like.
That is a heat sealed package ... they didn't produce them that way...
Perhaps they utilized multiple different packaging methods...
Especially to avoid theft in the stores...

But...yeah..packaging - wise.....that is most certainly nothing like what I got.

There was a stack of VARIOUS type Otterboxes that where shaped / similar (package) to this.



If you see a market stall or online selling Otterboxes, could be easier to identifier the N900 model & not waste time looking through a type of Otterbox packaging that was never used for N900.

(I hope that makes sense, I'm tired; sorry).

What's the difference between a "Commuter"-edition and a "Defender"-edition for the same device?

Commuter is more slimmer version of heavy protection, defender is ultimate protection that usually comes with build in screen protection and is more rugged

Coupon seems to work: ACCESSORY25
3 available at time of posting & none have sold for over 2 months.
Reviews are concerning & strangely the listing does not show up, using the site's search function.

NOT affiliated, at your own risk.
No feedback yet from any "gamblers"
Supposedly 14 had sold on 8Feb (3 left in stock) & 10 sold on 22Feb (3 left in stock). Any of these N900 fans going to chime in?

I already have an otterbox for one of my n900's...
have a book variant case, as well and metal as well..
same with my n810's and n800's...

I would get a second otterbox for my n900's
But ...I would seriously be wary of the source of these great bargains.

A bit of looky-looing found enough for me not to take a chance with even $10 with these blokes.

Out of 13 reviews to the Better Business Bureau (BBB)
cellularcountry.com got 1.2 out of 5 stars....
(and I think if it hadn't been for one of the thirteen giving a positive review ....it would have been a - star rating ...if that were possible....)
https://www.bbb.org/sdoc/business-re...and-complaints


and from consumeraffairs.com
out of 84 reviews ..cellularcountry.com got a whopping 1.5 out of 5 stars...
https://www.consumeraffairs.com/cell...r-country.html


with reviews as consistently and thoroughly as bad as this...
wellllll....
Lets put it this way...
If this were the Dark Ages...
I would be avoiding business interactions with cellularcountry.com ...
like the plague.


I don't care if they are offering otterbox cases for $20 ...$10....hell...$1...
It isn't worth the risk ...hassle ...or irritation...
knowing just how bad they are..from those reviews.
