Is Your Phone #BabyProof? Mine Is–with #LifeProof!

July 23, 2013

Back when I first got my iPhone – I did my best to keep it away from the kids.  After all, I didn’t buy the phone through Best Buy and therefore did not purchase a warranty plan (Shame on Me!). I would let the kids play with my phone in small increments – and then after getting myself an Otterbox case, I let them play with it even more.  One day, as I was sitting in the kitchen watching the boys play outside on the water table while writing a blog post… I noticed my phone wasn’t near me.  I decided that I must have left it in the car and I’d get it later… no big deal.

About 30 minutes later, I went outside to chill under the sun – and found my phone at the bottom of the water table! I *Cried*. Literally. I was so worried that I would have to buy a new phone or go back to my old phone which I very much disliked.  I stuck the phone in a bag of rice and sealed it up for a few days.  It was a good sign when I started hearing the phone beep when I was getting text messages – but I dared not open that bag for a few more days.

That very day was the day that I discovered ‘LifeProof’ cases. I ordered one RIGHT away.  I can’t even begin to count how many times that stinkin’ case saved my phone from disaster!

Now that I have a new iPhone 5 (Which I’ll be writing about next!) I knew that I would need a new LifeProof case to keep it safe from the water in order to capture the great moments like these and be sure that my phone is baby-proof, too!IMG_0080

The phone in this video is mistreated much like the phone in my house with two toddlers…

So the iPhone 5 case from Lifeproof is much like the iPad case review that I did last week – in the fact that it’s a nuud case as well. There is nothing covering the screen on my case so I don’t have any issues with performance with screen responsiveness. Although – it did come with an extra screen protector so that I can avoid scratches on the front of my phone.

The case installs super easily. Right from the package I was able to install it because It had already been tested by the factory which is very helpful. Although if I decided that I wanted to do my own test, there is an extra plastic piece that acts like the device that comes with the case so I can test it on my own.  I trust it though – especially knowing that there is a total water protection plan from LifeProof if the case ends up failing.

I only run into a few problems while using the case: I have so many cords for the old phone still because my husband still has an iPhone 4s – so I bought a few adaptors for the car and other locations.  The adaptors are not as small as the regular plug – so it doesn’t work with the case. It’s not a huge deal, I’ll probably just end up getting a few more cords for the iPhone 5.


Otherwise, I totally love this case and I rest well – assured that I am not going to need a new phone any time soon!

  5. Looks like a awesome case 🙂 Very stylish to!

  6. I never had a major mishap with my cell, I have been lucky!

  7. Judith R. says:

    None of my phones have “died” because of water. They have all “died” when they slipped out of hand when I was holding them. I need a better case.

  8. Emily N says:

    My daughter broke the glass on the back of my old phone. I need one of these.

  9. I lost a phone last summer that got wet t the amusement park

  16. Mikaela R. says:

    I have 3 toddlers running around the house daily finding my phone and tossing it EVERYWHERE! into water, dirt, walls, the list goes on and on! I would love to finally own case for my phone that they can not destroy!

  17. My husband dropped his phone in the sink while washing dishes and it never worked again.

  18. Jeffrey Brown says:

    I have been wanting the lifeproof case for a while now just never could afford it due to having so low money while going to college. I hope to get one soon for my iPhone. I have the otterbox but it’s not waterproof so I always have to stand as far away as possible when water is near…

  19. My phone has been in the toilet puddles and so much more this would be awesome to win!

  20. I had to replace my phone when i got it wet in a dragon boat race.

  21. As much protection as I can get is needed! Would love a waterproof one!

    My phone (knock on wood) has never been destroyed by water. My kids don’t touch mine

  23. My iphone 5 can handle the occasional raindrop here and there, but a lifeproof case would be awesome to have!!

  24. I’m having a problem with my LifeProof case for the iPhone 5. Everyone who talks to me says it sounds like someone is crinkling paper. I can take case off and it’s fine. Any other people having this trouble?

  32. Dana Delaney says:

    I’m the culprit of my own phone! not the kids. (smh) I drop mine all of the time, regardless of whether I’m near water or not. I’d love a Lifeproof. Their warranty is really good. My teen has one and they are an easy company to work with.
