    Man I dropped my phone at least three hard falls and it kills me! I hope nothing was damaged. I had in a semi protective case that sprint store sold with the snap clip in back.. Anyone else have bad falls too?

    I dropped my phone multiple times. Once, I was in class and a hornet or a yellow Jacket landed on my shoulder while I was holding my phone. I freaked out and dropped everything and ran. Luckily I have a tpu case on so my phone is without a scratch.

    Once. Partially broke the fall with my foot. No dings or scratches thankfully. My simple TPU case did its job.

    First time today after this post jinxed me. It made a loud thud on a carpeted floor with cement underneath. Thank god it wasn't an iphone or the screen might have shattered. No issues though.

    Nothing serious with this one yet - front breast pocket bending over to pick something up. A couple feet at most to a hardwood floor with a case. No worries.

    Did sent my old Palm Pre down the concrete driveway in a horrible display of coordination. It fell out of something and I quickly (or so I thought) reached out to grab it and proceeded to not only miss, but fumble it out even faster. It bounced HARD twice, then bounced normally about eleventeen more times. I was nearly in tears, but amazingly the phone worked, and the screen was almost unscathed. On the other hand, the edges and back looked like they'd been eaten by a large hungry dog.

    My son dropped mine playing Sonic CD onto a hardwood floor. About a 3 1/2 foot drop, not a scratch. I use a TPU and Invisishield.

    Oh, probably 20 times or so. Most from my shirt breast pocket when bending over. Some when getting out of the car and forgetting it is sitting on my lap. Best (or worst) was when I dropped it and tried to soften the blow by catching it with my foot and kicked it ten feet across the room instead.
    This is my first personal phone, I'm used to having company provided junkers that get replaced for free when ever I break them.
    I guess I've been lucky so far, no case or anything and no damage yet....

    I've dropped mine three times so far. Still works great...screen is flawless. Since I keep my phone naked, I do have some very fine scratches on the glossy bump in back. The battery cover pops off and the battery has come out...No damage from the drops though.

    I've also had a couple of drops, but no real damage. +1 on the TPU case ... seems to do a nice job of protecting things without adding a lot of bulk. I think the fact that he phone is pretty light also helps.

    I drop mine regularly on a daily basis. I even dropped it from 30 feet above the Samsung booth while building it for CES this year. Parts everywhere but they all snapped back together. That one kinda surprised me because usually a cement swan dive is a death sentence but I just had the usual back battery front dispersal that I get as I said, daily. Dunno why I drop it so much. It sometimes leaps from my hand in fascinating ways.

    I haven't dropped a phone in over 3 years. I stay pretty self conscious about it.

    I dropped it once at work onto a carpeted floor, no damage. Almost dropped it many, many times. I used to carry it around naked because I hate the bulk a case adds, but this phone can be slippery, especially on the sides. I also feared others dropping it when handing it to them to look at a pic if they weren't used to it. So I relented and now use the the hard black case with the metal kickstand in the back.

    Just cracked my screen getting the phone replaced for $100. Then again, it was about a 4 foot drop on to concrete... face first... poor thing. Looks like cases and screen protectors on my next one.
