    Um, duh, I fully realize you are kidding. Cool your jets.

    Also--"person"? Is my gender that difficult to figure out from my name and signature?

    I am terrible at estimating height, so I am probably off, but this is the ride:



    It wouldn't have fallen off until it flipped me over and according to my family that was watching me, they didn't notice anything fall until it reached peak height (which is around the 1 minute mark) and started flipping me over. After watching the video, I don't think 80 ft. is even close to correct, but I can't guess how much it is. It's not 10 though...nor even as low as 20. Sure felt like 80 feet when spinning around.
    I think I just puked seeing it still, I didn't even click that damn video.

    I find these kinds of rides relaxing. They just feel so good.

    I've dropped my iPod touch a few times onto the sidewalk and it doesn't have a mark on it.

    I just want to clarify is apple care only for manufacturing defaults? Or would it cover accidents like dropping it?

    AppleCare is for manufacturer defects. AppleCare plus is for accidents like mine, with restrictions.

    Apple care plus covers up to 2 device replacements in the two year contract. They charge $49.99 for each replacement and it covers damage from impact,water and your normal opps monents. It does not cover lose or stolen phones. I went with apple care just because the Verizon insurance phones are mostly crap and it would cost $240 bucks for the life of my contract and still had a huge deductable.

    Well I went camping this past weekend and some dirt got into the very slight opening on the side where it fell. I think it will cause issues (probably not) and am going to replace it today. Oh well...it still runs good but I am concerned about other elements getting in eventually.

    And no, still no plans to use a case. They are ugly and I am careful enough with my phone, just didn't secure it properly on the ride that flipped me upside down.

    Yeah, I think you're being wise to replace it at this time. Besides, if that is what your gut is telling you to do then listen to it...

    Yea that probably is a good idea. Dirt for now, but what else in the future.

    Spilt beer into my iPhone 5 earpiece this weekend. Immediately after I tested the earpiece and the volume was very low even at the highest setting. The next day when I woke up everything was as good as new. These phones sure can withstand a lot. Oh and I never use a case, I have an Otterbox but I just think that it takes away from the aesthetics.
    If I ever hear about you being so careless as to spill beer again I will summon the man brigade and we will hunt you down!

    I am kind of curious if they only charged you the $229. I have also heard that at time of replacement they offer you AppleCare + to add on.

    The lifeproof water dirt and shock case is so lite and stylish I have the black case with the white 5 and the screen outline sets it off nice. I've had two iPhone users show interest.

    It's expensive at 80 plus dollars but I have no insurance

    There are very nice cases if you look around. Lifeproof and Otter Box make protective, stylish cases. My personal favorite are Incipio cases. They're more so thin and stylish than protective, but it should do some good.

    Yes they charged $229. $247 with taxes. They also offered AppleCare + for 50 bucks, which I declined.
