    Just got my Otterbox Defender for 3G/3GS today, I'm liking it so far. My only question is how to prevent air bubbles when snapping the plastic shell shut. It's annoying because even with my phone on you can see them a little.

    Right after cleaning the case, or taking the case off, let it lay around a little while before putting it on your iphone. Not long enough for it to get dirty, ofcourse.
    This always fixes mine.
    Oh, and how are you liking the case? I absolutely love mine.

    Okay, I'll try that. I like it, only bad thing is air bubbles and something else.

    Before my Mom traded hers in for a "new, less bulky" case, she had this problem also. But, they are kind of hard to notice when the screen is on.

    I went on their website and they said try baby powder. I'm going to try that once I get some.

    Baby powder..?? That's so interesting. As long as it works, that's all that matters.
