Today at work I had my iPhone 5 in my front shirt pocket. I bent down to pick something up while I was outside and my iPhone 5 fell out from knee height, if not lower because I was slightly crouched, and landed screen first. It shattered like it was going out of style. I have checked out the threads on here about not using a case and I have even started one questioning the use of a screen protector. I'll tell you this much, you NEED some sort of case. THANK GOD I bought applecare+!!
