Props to Otterbox|
My personal cell phone is a Blackberry Q10 (don’t judge), which I carry in an Otterbox Defender case & holster. Yesterday, I broke one of the clips on the holster under unusual circumstances*.
I called Otterbox to see if I could buy a replacement holster, but was told they stopped making them for my phone a year ago, and don’t even have any parts left. I don’t fault them for this since the Q10 is no longer manufactured or sold by any major carrier.
Otterbox wanted to provide a warranty replacement that I hadn’t even asked for, so they asked if there were any other devices I needed a Defender & holster for. I said I was planning to get an iPhone 6s at some point, so they are sending me my color choice for that. I paid $2.99 for shipping, period.
It seems I am another step closer to getting an iPhone.
*If anyone is that interested, I was attending a graduation ceremony at the Patriot Center and stood for the national anthem** with my phone in my hand. The clip snagged on the seat’s armrest.
**Why is it impossible for anyone to just sing the anthem as arranged? I blame Whitney Houston for doing it well and inspiring thousands to do it poorly.
