cellhelmet.  The ultimate protection for any iPhone 4/4S, offering you one full year of guaranteed accidental damage insurance for your device (water damage excluded).  Accidentally drop it or step on it - if your iPhone 4/4S breaks inside of a cellhelmet - you're covered.  cellhelmet is your safety net for accidents.  *Must register cellhelmet within 30 days of purchase.

"cellhelmet is not an indestructible brick-of-a-case. We wanted to keep the iPhone functional, so we designed it to be slim and bundled it with insurance, rather than adding unneeded bulk." 

                 -Bryan McHenry - COO/Co-Founder of cellpig.com

Global Warranty Group.  We've teamed up with Global Warranty Group, one of the nations largest and most recognized iPhone insurance administrators, to bring you reliable and legitimate coverage.  GWG has earned its solid reputation over the past 10 years and has an A+ ranking with the Better Business Bureau.

Retailing at $44.99.  Never pay monthly fees to protect your iPhone 4/4S from accidental damages again -  cellhelmet is one flat fee.

Easy claims.  If an iPhone 4/4S accidentally breaks inside of a cellhelmet, simply file a claim via our dedicated 1-800 number at Global Warranty Group (will be finalized on Feb 14th), where a customer service representative will guide you through the process (you'll need your proof of purchase).  Pay your $50 handling fee and send in your device.  It will be repaired or replaced (if deemed unrepairable) within 3 business days and overnighted back to your address - at our expense (via UPS).

Unlimited repairs.  cellhelmet includes unlimited repairs.  File as many accidental damage claims as needed, within your one year of coverage.  If your iPhone 4/4S is beyond repair - we will replace it (limit 1 replacement per policy).  cellhelmet coverage will end upon replacement of a devices and you will need to purchase a new case for additional coverage.

Guaranteed repairscellpig.com has secured an agreement with Global Warranty Group, one of the nation's largest and most recognized iPhone insurance administrators, to bring you cellhelmet.  Rest assured - all accidentily damaged devices will be returned, as if they were new.  We are the only company in the world that is guaranteeing a case that will physically protect your device.

Thermoplastic polyurethane rubber (TPU).  The transparent cellhelmet shell is constructed of a tough polyurethane.  It will not stretch or lose its shape, yet it will hold up to drops and falls, time and time again.  It has the feeling of a hard rubber, yet it's not rigid like plastic.

Make it your own.  Every cellhelmet comes with two interchangeable backplates, allowing for expression of your true colors.  Choose between pink/purple, green/blue or black/white and coordinate your iPhone with your daily outfit.

Pocket sized.  cellhelmet was designed with the pocket in mind - bulky cases are a thing of the past.  Keep your iPhone 4/4S insured, all the while maintaining its sleek and slim design.  We didn't want to take away from the functionality of the phone, so we kept it slim and bundled it with accidental damage insurance, rather than making it a brick.  There is no cover over the front screen - enjoy the functionality of your iPhone, without pesky air bubbles.  You'll also appreciate the fact that you have full access to every port and button, without having to remove the case.

Made in the USA.  We're proud to say that cellhelmet is manufactured 100% in the Pittsburgh area.  Feel free to call us (cellpig.com) Monday through Friday, 9am to 5pm, EST if you have any questions.  We promise a human will answer the phone.  412-610-0692 (Dedicated 1-800 number will be set by mid February).

Easy renewals.  When your protection is up, simply purchase a new cellhelmet and enjoy another full year of iPhone 4/4S accidental damage insurance.

Help us Kickstart the project.  The cellhelmet project is currently underway.  We expect our mold to be at our facility on March 8th, 2012.  If all goes as planned, we will begin production on March 10th.  We need your help to raise an additional $10,000, which will be used for our first run of production and a few budget overages that we have met along the way.
