  • Cellhelmet: We Guarantee Your iPhone 4/4S With Our Case

    Are you one of those people that dresses their iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S in the most protective case available because you're afraid that the world is going to break it just by looking at it? If you're one of these kinds of people, then you should have a look at one of the KickStarter events going on right now called cellhelmet. It's a case for the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S made out of TPU (Thermoplastic polyurethane) rubber. Above is an image of how it looks with an iPhone inside of it, but the best part about this case is that if your iPhone is broken while inside of the cellhelmet, cellpig.com promises you a free replacement for the broken parts, or if not fixable, a new iPhone - no matter how damaged it is. You just need to pay $50 for the handling. The only catch is that the warranty does not cover water damage. How is that for customer service?

    The warranty comes with the purchase of the case and lasts for one year after its purchase. In order to be accompanied by the warranty, you must register with cellhelmet within 30 days of purchasing the case. The cellhelmet case will retail for $44.99, but you can reserve your pre-sale copy of the case for $40 from the KickStarter Web page.

    The case is a total of 4.9 inches tall and 2.7 inches wide with a thickness of .478 inches. The cellhelmet will come in many different colors which are interchangeable in regards to your own tastes. When you buy a cellhelmet case, you get two colored back plates which you can choose upon purchase. The colored sets include the following: pink/purple, green/blue, or black/white. Unfortunately, you cannot mix and match them. To change the back plate color, you simply take out the phone and slip in the color you want which is indicated by the diagram below:

    I think that the appearance of the case could be better, but in terms of protection, nothing fares better than an absolute iPhone warranty if it is damaged while in the cellhelmet case. I think that the value of the warranty far out-sells the case itself. If you used to have a one-year warranty on your iPhone 4 and it has ran out after the last year that you've owned it, then this case gives your iPhone 4 a second chance. After your year of protection from cellhelmet runs out, you can buy another cellhelmet case and you get a brand new one-year warranty. So technically, you can keep your iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S under warranty forever. There are no extraneous fees for the warranty whatsoever, however you will need pay the $50 handling fee for the replacement. These cases are made in the United States of America and nowhere else!

      When I'm rich enough, I'll be able to use iPads instead of paper plates! It's a sign of wealth, so it's a life goal

      The back looks ok, but the front looks absolutely horrible to me. I like my phone to be protected, but this is just an eye sore.

      cellhelmet is for accidental breaks. If your iPhone breaks inside of a cellhelmet it will be repaired or replaced (if deemed unrepairable). $44.99 for the product/coverage. $50 handling fee, if your phone should accidentally break inside. Thanks for the support!

      cellhelmet costs $44.99. Handling fee is $50. Therefore, an overall accidental break would constitute $94.99 out of your pocket. Thanks for the communication!

Cracks, yes, I could see covered....but I wouldn't be sure about scratches...as it is not a "broken" phone....just a ugly one.
      "Accidental damage" is "accidental damage." cellhelmet covers all "accidental damages." Thanks for the support!

It isn't the first company to provide such a guarantee and screw you out of it when their product doesn't prove out to be what they claim. Shy of having a video of your phone in the case showing the about screen (SSN, ECID, etc...) and getting broke good luck getting the benefit of their warranty.

      You'll get a questionnaire at the end of the campaign, which will give you options to choose from. Not too far off. Thanks so much for your backing!
