How to Get the Otter Box Defender Off the iPhone
The OtterBox Defender is a heavy-duty case for the the Apple iPhone 3G, 3GS, or 4. The OtterBox Defender is made up of a plastic shell that snaps onto the phone, a silicone skin that covers the shell and absorbs impact, and a screen protector. The OtterBox Defender case can be removed from your iPhone so you can clean your device or clean your case.
Grab the corners of the silicone skin one at a time. Pull each corner away from the plastic shell and place it behind the shell to remove the skin.
Place your fingernail into the three tabs on your OtterBox Defender shell and pry the two halves of the shell apart so you can see a slight gap between them. One tab is located on the top of the shell, and the other two are located on the left and right sides of the shell.
Carefully pull the two halves of the OtterBox Defender plastic shell away from each other.
Lift your iPhone out of the front half of your OtterBox Defender shell.
