    Yup, I was walking through the house with my phone in hand when I tripped in the vacuum cord. My phone went flyin' through the air hitting the hardwood floor. The back flew one way, the battery went another and the phone must have slide about 10 feet on its face. From the sound it made I thought for sure the screen was toast. I picked it up and not a scratch, dent, ding, nothing! This is one tough little cookie.

    Just thought i'd share how durable this little baby is! Have a good day, ya'll!

    Thanks for the story with the happy ending. Glad to hear that your phone survived the incident unscathed. (BTW, how did the hardwood floor come through? )

    Oh God! I was very worried about the phone before reading the happy ending. I'm happy everything is ok with the phone (and you [lets not forget lol])!

    Can't wait to get mine!

    Awesome! Mine took a hit also (but on concrete), and not a scratch was made! It's a durable little device.

    The hardwood survived too I think. Not sure of the exact point of impact but I didn't see anything dents or marks in the floor either. lol

    How is this even possible?! It happened again! Twice, in one day!! I'm clearly not on top of my game! Once again, my beloved baby took a hit. This time it got knocked off my desk, back flew off and battery flew out but it survived without a scratch! Think it's time to go home, go to bed and take my BB with me. lol

    A silicone or rubber skin will keep the battery door on.
    Mine took a 6' fall onto the sidewalk below while I was goofing around jumping onto a retaining wall. Nothing at all happened.

    I haven't dropped mine yet, but i have some tiny surface scratches on it, but the thing is a champ. i work outside at an airport, so it is in harsh conditions all day long, and it stands up to everything.

    Glad to know its solid build and screen. I have ordered one and will be getting next week. All BB's are solid build. I have used storm2 and torch 9800, minor fallen but no damage at all.

    My co-worker dropped his iPhone yesterday trying to reach for the door and his phone shattered! My point is glass breaks! Yet people cry about our phones not have glass screens.

    Wow, I was reluctant to read this thread because it sounded painful...lol
    Glad it had a happy ending. I've been there - your heart in your throat as your phone goes flying. Sometimes I was lucky, sometimes not so much.

    The iphone always makes its way on a bb thread no matter what its the standard to which you all compare your phones but then get angry when others do it. I just don't understand this site sometimes
