I hope they laugh you out of the store if you even attempt to get it switched under the unbreakable clause. Show me a link where they specifically state the glass is unbreakable in all circumstances.

After seeing horror stories like this, I just ponied up the dough and bought coverage through Squaretrade. It was only $99, which isn't bad. For those who preordered, you only have a couple of days of eligibility because you can only get it within 30 days of your purchase.

These threads make me want to hug my cases and SquareTrade. Not that my Barely There case would help in that sort of drop. Ouch!

About the glass:
The glass is much HARDER than the previous version. The harder something is the more brittle it tends to be. What this means is that this glass (similar to synthetic sapphire) won't scratch nearly as easily, but will break more easily. That is how glass works. High-end watches use sapphire crystals and go decades without a scratch, but drop them off a table and there is a good chance they might shatter.iPhone 5 16GB / 21.5" iMac. 3.06GHz OSX Mountain Lion/ Apple TV 2nd Gen/ iPad Gen2, 16GB.
