Alright, let's hear the horrible drop stories!
It's been about a month and a half since the iPhone 4S was released. I know some of you have to have shattered your screens or dropped your phone in the toilet by now. I managed to dodge a bullet, so to speak. I had a bit too much to drink the other night, then woke up on some random couch in a room I didn't recognize, having no idea how I got there. I had a horrible hangover, bruises on my body, and a crack down the middle of the case that was on my 4S...but the iPhone itself was safe! Now let's hear everyone else's stories!

The first day I had my 4S it was sitting on the tip of the toilet, and I it a text, and it vibrated off to the tile and scratched the screen. I put a screen protector on, and you can't even tell now.

I have not dropped mine yet. I'm dreading the day it happens. I cracked the screen of my 3GS and really don't want that to happen again.
I had a close call when I was doing my hair one morning last week and didn't have a case on my 4S. The phone is so slick I almost let my phone slip and tumble into the sink but I caught it in time!

Handed mine to my 5 yr old to talk to his father....and yep, he dropped it on the wood floor. Safe and sound with my CandyShell on though. Daddy will be calling his lil boys on the house phone from now on though I'm very careful with my phones.

I shattered my iPhone 4 the day before I got my 4S. I was lucky, in a sense that I didn't have to use a shattered phone for too long. Normally I prefer to go naked. Since I bought Apple Care+ I'm much more relaxed about it though. Naked 100% of the time now, save for that one time I was drinking. Haha.

Had my first drop last night. I got the phone on launch day. I had been playing around all day with whether or not I should leave my case on or off, seeing as how I've never had a slip and drop the phone.
Thankfully, before I left for work I put the case back on. Around 9pm I went to step out of my truck and heard a *thump, thump, thump* as I exited. I looked down and saw the 4s lying face up on the ground. No damage to the phone, and I made a good call by leaving the case on.
But, in those few fractions of a second during the fall, I had feared the worst.
