Yes- the S4 Active takes it's own size case. I personally would recommend the Otter Box Defender Series.

Yes unfortunately this true. I would think the reason of this would be because of the S4 Active size.

No, you have to do that through your carrier, or proceed to "root" your phone from your own PC

Not necessarily, depends on the user. The S4 active can still be broken and also suffer damage from water. Best bet is to find a good quality phone and utilize the Best Buy GeekSquad as a protection plan (better value than through the carrier) ex. monthly for any android phone is $9.99 or you can pay an out right amount of $169.99 for 2yrs. iPhones are more costly $14.99 a month or buy out right for 2yrs at $229.99. There are no deductibles. If for example you have ATT and an iPhone, you pay $7.99(ex.) a month and also a $199.99 deductible, max out at 3 phones a year. if you go the inexpensive route, Samsung Galaxy S3 is great because you have LTE capability at a great price. Otherwise the S4 is great.

answer 2
It's no more different than any other phone except that it's water and dust resistant but it doesn't mean the phone is more rugged than the regular S4. It's just as fragile and I'd recommend a case and screen protector like any other phone to protect from accidental damage and wear and tear.

Definitely, given the active lifestyle of most teenagers, it would be a great device.

S4 active- android, larger screen, mostly plastic.

iPhone5- iOS6(soon to be iOS7) , not as large of screen, metalic/glass

Android is a Linux based program system which is considered open source- which means yo ucan have it adapt more to you(Customize to you)

iOS- is more user friendly

answer 2
The S4 active has a larger screen and has the added benefit of water resistance and a huge selection of extra technology that far exceeds the iPhone 5. The iPhone is simple and easy to use, it also limits what you can do by having no flash player and also everything you do or want to download has to go through iTunes, witch can get expensive.

If bought at Best Buy you have 14 days to return. I prefer the S4, I would already be purchasing a protection plan for my phone so to get a phone that is resistant to particular things does not make sense.

answer 2
the active is water and dust resistant the regular s4 is not
the active is slightly larger and weighs more than the regular s4
the active has a conventional TFT display (more natural colors) the regular s4 uses Super Amoled ( more vibrant and saturated colors )
the two phones use difference cases for protection
ATT's return policy is 14 days from date of purchase or date shipped if ordered online they charge a restocking fee up to $35

The Active is more resistant.

The return policy from AT&T would be best addressed by them.

Thanks for your interest in Samsung products.
