    My hubby forgot his 9900 on the roof of his car and it flew off into traffic, hit a car on its door, and then the battery and cover got run over while main part landed in the ditch.... The battery was crushed. He put it all back together and it still works!!!!

    Wow, sounds like a crazy ride it got. Please upload some pictures? I would like to see how bad the housing suffered from the fall and bumps.

    Yes, please upload pics! That is awesome that it held up so well. When I had an iPhone i barely dropped it and I feel like the entire thing shattered.

    There is a Canadian vendor on eBay, selling original parts. Last time I looked, the whole housing and back cover for the 9900 was $37. If it still works and you want to fix up the cosmetics, it's not a bad deal. I got a 9860 housing from him and it shipped from Waterloo.

    blackberries are the sturdiest of the phones, second to probably nokia?

    here is another story:
    when my dad was using the bold 9900 with the pocket pouch, he would have atleast dropped the phone 5 times right in front of me!
    getting out of the car and it fell onto the footpath!

    he also dropped it from the stairs it went tumbling down, and no problem at all thanks to the pouch, the phone only has some minor blemishes on the metal sides thats it!!

    and my old curve 8520, used to be banged around all the time in the bag with books and a metal water bottle,l no big deal, scratches only on the battery cover! i had dropped on a bus once screen down and it went sliding towards the front hehehe

    I want to see tech blogs make this test the standard for seeing how durable a phone is.
