    We are in Palm beach this weekend so I will have to post pic of the damage down to her Apple Orange Bumper when I get back tomorrow.

    While I was back at hotel taking care of our newborn. Wife and her girlfriends attended Dave Matthews Band Concert last night.

    I knew she was really drunk when she got back. She's already clumsy even when sober with phones.

    I examined the iPhone 4 this morning. There were like 2 major dents in the Orange Bumper. First she
    denied dropping the phone. But these marks on the orange bumper are so obvious she finally admitted dropping it on concrete at least 3 times last night.

    I examined phone closely and thank god there is no damage to the phone itself.

    I will post a pic when we get back tomorrow since I don't have a computer with me to upload to macrumors.

    But I felt she got real lucky reading other people's horror stories about glass breaking with minor drops.

    Not a big Dave Matthews Band fan, although I have been to one of their concerts and they do sound good live. But they have a huge following. Saw signs of fans everywhere in Palm Beach and our hotel on the Beach was completely booked for the weekend.

    Watched a YouTube video the other day where the guy dropped his phone with a bumper from various heights. Lasted all the falls until he tried a 23 ft. drop. But still superb protection!

    Yeah. I heard this was their 20th year. They are taking a "break" next year. So their die hard fans like my wife are buying and selling out their concerts for this year.

    The guy probably purchased his iPhone 4 with AMEX which allows for "accidental damage" 90 day warranty. So a he has to do is take it to Apple, pay the $200 for new/refurb and apple will take his damaged iPhone 4. American express will just reimburse him for the $200.

    That's the only way I would play the how high can I drop the iPhone 4 with Bumper before it breaks.

    Sounds like the bumper worked out well in her case, and a good thing that she didn't crack the screen.

    Actually (assuming we are talking about the same videos) he is sponsored by some iPhone fixer website, so he just took it to them and had it fixed for free.

    The real tragedy here is having to endure hours of DMB. Dropping the iPhone pales in comparison.

    +1 The 90's called, they don't want their band back either and say that we can keep them :( Drinking too much to the point of coordination issues is one of the things that AA will point out to indicate you may have a problem. However, going to a DMB concert (or Phil Collins I suppose) AND getting that smashed is a sure fire sign. I wonder what the phone ever did to anyone else to deserve such abuse?

    j/k :D

    Not to mention, others just have a lot of disposable income to jerk around with. Buy a boat over, say, 26 feet and the cost of that one iP4 with ETF will seem like afternoon cocktails. Yet, marinas are filled with the fiberglass financial disasters in waiting (don't ask me how much it cost me just to SELL mine :(

    You know, I really love many many artists from the 90s (Phil Collins included) but DMB was terrible back in the 90s and they are terrible now. Nothing has changed ;)

    SHhhh, you'll upset the conspiracy theorists who want you to believe that the sole purpose of the bumper is to resolve the antenna issue...

    SHhhh, you'll upset the fanboys who want you to believe that there is no such thing as the antenna issue...

    If my wife dropped her phone once I'd let it go
    The second time, if she dropped it at a concert - I'd take it away from her :)

    There would be no third time LOL

    Yeah. Just met up with one of her girlfriends for brunch. Her girlfriend did say she took the iPhone away after the third drop. She was afraid my wife would lose the phone. She said the last time it was dropped wife couldn't reach down underneath a concert seat and it slid down 2 other chairs. It's a good thing it was an orange bumper because she was able to locate the phone.

    Did you check whether she dropped herself while drunk? Otherwise iP4, it is just a phone!

    Damn, what's with all the DMB smack-talking??? Jeez.

    And illutionz, to compare DMB to Phil Collins (and I liked Phil) is just stupid. DMB was absolutely NOT terrible in the 90's (they've never been terrible) and to say that is just uninformed.

    OP, I agree with the other poster that said it. After she admitted to 3 drops, her iPhone 4 rights get revoked! Take that thing away before it's too late!
