Protect your cell phone!

Let’s face it. Nearly everyone has dropped a cell phone at one time or another. Because of this, many mobile phone owners opt to purchase protective skins or cases to put around their phones. A simple protective gel skin or hard case can do a lot in preventing a dropped cell phone from being ruined. The internet has all kinds of online shopping sites where you can pick up a skin or case, as well as hundreds of other phone products and phone plans.

Protective Skins and Hard Cases for Smart Phones

Let’s Talk, a site that is appropriately named, offers a number of cell phone plans and numerous smart phones. They have a number of accessories, with protective skins and cases starting at just $5.95. Is cracking the screen your biggest problem? Let’s Talk also sells screen shields for about six bucks, too. For most people, the screen is definitely a worthwhile investment.

UniqueSkins is true to its title, as this site carries hundreds of protective skins for cell phones. It’s easy to choose on this site, as all the mobile phone skins are divided up by type of phone to ensure the cover will fit your particular phone. Samsung, Blackberry, Motorola, Nokia, T-Mobile, and Apple are just some of the name brands of phones that UniqueSkins can fit with protective coverings. Other electronics besides cell phones include ipads, MP3 players, and gaming consoles.

Slickwraps and Cowboom--what fun sites!

Slickwraps (another cool name) goes as far as to include a video on how to apply their slickwraps to a phone. Watching someone do this task while listening to some fun music makes for an entertaining video! You must check out the How to Skin 101 video. Slickwraps’ latest wraps are their camouflage series. These come in all different colors, from the traditional green to camo pink!

Cowboom has some great prices, including a “deal of the day,” a deal such as slashing a gaming console from $250 to just under $70. That’s significant savings! This site also has ongoing auctions that can save shoppers a bundle. As far as protective skins and cases, there do not appear to be any on this site, but Cowboom is definitely worth mentioning because of their amazing price slashing and ongoing auctions.

Save on online skins and cases for your cell phone!

Many other online stores offer some really cool gel wraps, slick wraps and skins, or hard cases for your particular cell phone. These stores also offer a whole lot more as far as electronics—computers, gaming, MP3 players, iPads, and more. Promo codes will give you some great deals, too, on some of your favorite department stores, stores like Target and Macy’s, who also may have the electronics you need.

      Seriously, the Otterbox is the best and with 2 small kids who take turns playing with my IPhone it has truly been a lifesaver. I totally endorse it and would say definitely look into it. Glad I stopped by too!

      Great article for all 'unintentional droppings.' Today protective gel skin are a must. We live a fast living, and timing is precious . Your research is very down to earth and informative. Keep it up Victoria! Love dark blue cases though!

      If I buy a smart phone I'm admitting that the phone is smarter than I am, and that just will not do. :)

      Great hub Vicki; passing it on to Bev since she makes all purchase decisions.
