    I dropped mine today face down. Luckily there is no cosmetic damages since i have a case and double protected my screen BUT now i see lines when I change the screen from landscape to portrait and vise versa. I also noticed my screen had the static screen, you know when you connect your TV to the antenna and when you get no signal you get that fuzz.




    It's bit blurry but notice the lines on the bottom. I had to take the pics while i move the phone.

    Anyone else having similar problems?

    I've noticed it's only when there is lag on the phone, especially when i'm playing music.

    Thats sucks.
    I dropped mine from about 4 feet onto my hardwood floor, with no protection. No damage, not even a scratch, and it still runs great.

    I dropped mine on Sunday, 2ft from the ground, not a scratch on it. Backlight DEAD. One little green line from top to bottom. Completely black. They are sending me a replacement.

    I have dropped mine 2x. First time was the day after I bought my silicone case and screen covers I dropped it out of my pocket onto the concrete. There is a MM sized scratch on the top left chrome part. Then when I was on the East Coast for my AP History trip, I dropped it at Little Round top in the dirt and it bounced like 4 or 5 times and not a scratch or chip on it at all.

    Someone should make thicker silicone or rubber cases or add rubber inside plastic cases to reduce the shock more effectively if it gets dropped.

    I've dropped it twice. The first time was getting out of my car. It was on my lap wearing its silicon case. Landed face down on the parking lot. No damage at all. In fact it made my screen click much better.

    The second time it fell out of my Seido (sp?) holster getting out of my car. Took a nice chunk out of the silver on the bottom right and scratched above the blackberry logo.

    Yeah I usually drop mine every time I get out of the car. I need to chain it to my belt or something. No problems yet though.

    I was in Calgary last week and as I threw a snowball my Storm went flying out of my jacket pocket. It flew over a fence and down a cliff. The cliff wasn't rocky, more like packed dirt but parts were covered in snow. It was a hundred feet or so to the bottom, maybe more. The Storm was cartwheeling the whole way. It ended up in a pile of dirt a the bottom. I managed to find a way down and the phone was covered in dust but to my surprise still working! It has one chunk missing from the silver bezel near the mute button. Other than that, no major damage. Screen is perfect.

    I dropped the first one I had onto concrete. Took a chunk out of the screen. Thank God for insurance on it. Anyway, dropped the new one only once, onto hardwood, and it works great. No dings or dents either. Needless to say, now I have a holster...

    Dropped it in an airport. Four big marks on all four corners of the silver edge of the screen. No damage to the screen itself, and still works great.

    I tend to drop it on the asphalt but the Seidio case has saved it.

    My storm has popped out of my Seidio Holster a couple of times and dropped about 3 feet onto a tile floor. Apparently so far there is no damage. Thank God!!
