"Break an iPhone inside  we repair/replace it."

It's a strong promise, but smartphone case company Cellhelmet swears by it. Its line of hefty iPhone cases come with accidental damage coverage, so users can make claims for repair if their device happens to break while using the product.

But, the company stresses, the coverage shouldn't prompt users to try to break their phones.
An asterisked section at the bottom of their product page states that the cases are not indestructible, and shouldn't be treated as such. All damage claims, if a user chooses to submit one, are subject to a $50 handling fee.

From the page:

The following is not covered: water damage, manufacturer defects and faulty operating systems. Personalized data such as contact lists, photos, video and music downloads. Customized software, such as personal information, screen savers and software applications. It is the responsibility of the customer to backup all information prior to submitting for repair.

It also adds that Cellhelmet will only cover physical damages to the iPhone 4 or 4S, although cases are also available for the iPhone 5.

The cases range in price from $44.99 to $49.99 and can be bought on Cellhelmet's website.
