iPhone Survival Story
I just got my wife an iPhone (3g 8gig). I bought the standard, nothing special, rubber case for it. I didn't have any iPhone screen protectors yet so I had put a generic screen protector on it left over from a previous phone.
Crossing a busy highway to get to the coffee shop, her phone fell out of her purse into the road and oncoming traffic. She turned around just in time to see a car run it over going about 30 miles per hour. She ran over to get it much to her dismay almost completely unblemmished from the event!!!
There are a few scratches where the screen protector doesn't cover but nothing more. In fact, she pulled the screen protector off to check and not a single scratch on it!!!!
Another reason Apple is worth the money and the iPhone rules the land...literally.

Cool. I think some luck was involved here, since I've heard breakage horror stories that wasn't nearly as violent as yours. But your preventative measures certainly helped.
I got my wife the same 3G. She carries it in an incase cover with a generic matte protector. After several drops, the phone is undamaged (fingers crossed for the future).
But for the price we pay for these things over feature phones, I'd expect that they deliver above-average durability.
