    not cool, bro. please tell me you were standing up?
    I would love to be able to tell you that, but if all I was doing was standing up, would I be playing a game of Doodle Jump?

    Trying to be confident in my Otterbox Defender, I intentionally dropped mine from about 2.5 feet high to attempt to simulate if i had left it on my lap and got out of my car. No scratches, but the slight impact jarred the screen enough to cause about a half inch solid gray stripe on the left edge of the screen. Seeing as how the case saved the phone from cosmetic damage, I went to an Apple Store to see if they'd replace it. They asked when it started, so I told them last night. They didn't ask anything beyond that and replaced it for free. All this was just this morning.

    Phone is only still in Otterbox case because that's better than nothing at all, and I'm waiting until the LifeProof case comes out.

    On the very first day I got the iPhone, it was so hard to just to get it, long story, and when I finally got it, the Verizon guy handed it to me, and it slid right through my hand and landed on the floor. Good thing they had carpets on there. But that was then only time, so far, that I dropped it, knock on wood.

    I've dropped my iP4 several times onto some kind of padded surface i.e. carpet etc. But about a month ago I was with a customer on their shop floor (concrete), reached into my pocket to retrieve my pen and upon withdrawing my hand & pen, my phone came along for the ride and hit the concrete floor.

    Embarrassed by my clumsiness in front of my client, I scooped up the phone put it back in my pocket and went on with my business there.

    Upon getting in my vehicle to depart, I pulled my phone out to make a call and that is when I noticed that a corner of the front glass was shattered. The phone still worked but it looked awful.

    I brought up the Apple Store App and scheduled a genius bar appointment in an hour. Upon arriving for my genius bar appointment, I admitted that it was my clumsiness but I needed to get my phone fixed. The genius, took the phone, typed into their system the s/n and looked up at me to say, "you know this is not under warranty." I acknowledged that I knew that. He kept typing, turned around, picked up a box with a new phone in it, handed me a service order to sign. I fully expected to pay $199 for the privilege but to my surprise the total was $0.00.

    When I asked him what was up with that, his reply was "a guy needs his iPhone." I gratefully thanked him 20 times and departed.

    Now that is what I call customer service, and people wonder why I am a fanboi!

    Here in Korea, they sell silicon sheaths with a cool tire track print on them for 3G iPhones. Bulky, anything but flush.

    My wife got it for me soon after my first drop onto the kitchen's hardwood floor, in which the SIMM card literally flew out of the unit, landing a few feet away. Spooked the heck out of me, but now the tire tracks in my grip feel so perfect...No sliding out of the pocket, ability to stick on an 80˚ angle music stand, and of course, bounce now when dropped.

    I dropped my iPhone 5 times. And on my holiday in Australia I dropped it into the toilet. But thanks to the hair-dryer it still works.

    I've never dropped my iPhone but it lives in a defender case. Once in awhile I take it out to admire it but back in it goes. Hopefully that saves some retail value when I sell it for number 5. I have terrible OCD too.

    Haven't dropped mine yet, and I hope I don't because I'm only using a griffin reveal, no screen protector...

    Good timing and home buttons are not that bad to fix but kind of a pain to get to on the ip4

    I have dropped my iPhone 4 about a total of 3 times. It was in the Speck case each time. There isn't even a scratch on it and I have had it for over a year now.

    I make my daughter keep hers in a Speck candyshell case. It was the toughest case I could get her to use that wasn't "ugly"-her opinion. She wanted no part of an otterbox defender. She's been warned, if she damages it in any way she will be using Straight Talk lol!

    Bleh, dropped it once, the day after i had just gotten it.
    Went to pull it out of my pocket, caught on my pocket, fell out of my hand and right onto the hardwood floor. No case, just ghost armored.

    Luckily there was 0 damage.

    Seby your posts are now starting to resemble spam because it would seem you just copy and paste. If I am wrong I will be the first to apologize. I see the site you are promoting is taking pledges. How long before this case is released to the public(or those who have not pledged?)

    I was really disappointed in the Lifeproof case. Waterproof cases will always be sacrificing something. With lifeproof the music sounded like it was playing underneath a pillow. Again just my opinion.

    Peace

    My phones always had hard time with me, one drowned in a toilet, the other i forgot to take of the hood of a car after getting the fuel, so it fell pretty hard. Fortunately my iPhone besides few minor falls, didn't suffer any horror story

    I was at a BBQ for a friends birthday, I got slightly drunk and at around 2am in the morning, I went into my pocket to get my iPhone 4 out so that i could phone taxi and get home...

    I was slightly drunk, so my hand didn't do what i wanted it to do... Which was hold the phone tight, it slipped and hit the concrete floor very hard. To my disbelief, it was fine. I almost crapped my pants when i dropped it though...

    The next morning i woke up, feeling less then perfect, looked at my phone and noticed it had a dent (above the microphone, where the edge meets the glass). The glass was fine, but the casing is dented and there are a few scuffs above the microphone.

    At 2am when i was drunk, i didn't notice this.

    I felt and still feel bad about it, my new mint condition iPhone 4 has a dent and scuffs. Nothing major, but i know its there and it bugs me still.
