    I was driving home friday night, I got into a horrible car accident. Car flipped and is completly totaled. Thanks to god, I made it out of the car safe and with only minor cuts and bruises (seat belt saved my life ). On an even brighter note, my Storm survived the crash! My phone was not secured in my bag and I think it was left in the cup holder right before the crash. It probably pretty much was all over the car. When the car came to a stop, there was the Storm on the car floor, although out of its protective rubber case, was still in tact and only has minor scratches. This is a pretty durable phone!! Just thought I would share my story.

    Here are the pics for all the curious people

    Obviously, the fact you posted this thread about your phone tells me you were very lucky. I'm glad you're ok.

    (good thing the story of your accident didn't involve texting)

    Thanks everyone! No I was not using the phone when it happened.

    I am glad you were unharmed... That is a heck of a stress test to put your storm though, I am glad it survived and passed with flying colors, but you probably shouldn't do that again.

    good to hear your cool..sounds like the srs systems did its job. just a few weeks ago a kid I know flipped his car, and since I own a custom paint and collision auto shop I see my fair share of totaled flipped cars, usually people aren't as lucky. and it's also good to know that our phones can take that kind of abuse ;] lord knows i put mine through ****

    Glad to hear you made it through that OK. And can certainly understand you being a tad shaken up afterwards!!

    You should ask your friend with the iPhone pics to MMS them to you so can share them with us.
