    Screen is ok. It landed perfectly flat screen down. Was afraid to turn it over. Would have been horrible had the screen cracked. Kinda like the girl who has sex one time and gets pregnant... Horrible

    OP, I feel your pain.

    I already accidentally dropped mine from waist height onto a concrete floor. However, pretty much straight out of the box a screen protector and case go on so absolutely no damage to the phone and a slight scuff to a cheap case. Fine by me.

    I was trying to hold out to buy the one case that this phone will remain in until its time to sell. But looks like i may go the cheap case route till my case comes out.

    Yep, I thought the same as you. My current case isn't the one I want the phone to end up in but has already paid for itself by shielding the phone from what could potentially have been a nasty drop.

    In all honesty not bad at all. The unknowing eye may not recognize it. However I now have testimony about the paint chipping that has been such a hot topic.

    It was the classic phone on the lap while exiting vehicle drop. Nothing to major but several nicks resulted all around the edge of the front face.

    Does anyone know of insurers which payout the value of your phone rather than send out refurbished replacement phones?

    This is the 1st iPHONE I put a case on. After hearing about the ease at which the aluminum case scratches I decided to put a case on. Sorry for your accident. Again thank heavens the screen didn't crack.

    I did something similar. The MINUTE I put on my Speck Candyshell case, it slipped on the countertop and straight to the floor. Facepalm.

    Luckily I see no damage to the phone itself, just a little scratch in my case. I don't know what would have happened had it been naked - the way it landed could have caused shattering. Yikes!

    Similarly, I accidentally pulled on mine while it was connected to my laptop. It flew into the wall. My screen protector took the blow and cracked, but I overnighted a cheap case from ebay right after that

    I don't really like either of those cases because they look so ugly.

    I'd go with a Speck Candyshell

    I dropped mine too, on my birthday few days ago. Had one too many drinks. No screen damage. Just a nick in the corner and a few minor very light scuffs on the bottom back.

    Such a sad horrible feeling...

    Sorry to hear about the drop, but glad that the screen is okay! I am thinking about putting mine in an Otterbox Defender for now just for this reason

    Have had a case since Day 1, but just took it off when I realized it was almost impossible to take off due to Zagg shields on both front and back, I decided it had to go--I had to wreck it to get it off, anyway. Got a scratch on the phone near the connector for my troubles, too! At least it's not really visible. Love going naked, but I"m nervous...

    The thing is: when we have a case on, are we more likely to drop it?! I think so, but I'll soon find out for sure. At lease the Zaggs are there for scratches.

    LOL... my kind of fail. I was going back upstairs in our somewhat steep staircase the other day, and I lost feet. My phone flew from my hand, smashed on the wall beside me. There's a kind of flat edge there than runs along the stairs, until about two stairs from the bottom, at about a feet high. My phone slided on it all the way downstairs on its screen, then flew about two feets before hitting the tile floor on a corner. I was like, WTF! There's carpet on the stairs, in 99.9% of similar accidents it would have landed on it and stopped there.

    40$ for a case and screen was the best investment I made on day one... No scratch or dent whatsoever.

    Sorry for you man!
