    I dropped my iPod in the locker room after Swim Team Practice yesterday. It fell from the top locker. (About five feet)

    I have the VERY THIN new 4G. It landed on hard tile flooring on it's back. I was freaking out, I've only had this thing since Christmas!!

    I picked it up and looked at it. What I thought was a series of cracks was a handprint, what I thought was a scratch was a piece of dust.

    I was so RELIEVED. Everything works fine, and I had a case on it.

    This is my case, it works REALLY WELL.

    Well worth the 25 bucks. BUY!

    Nice that the case protected it. Not so amazing. :rolleyes: Try dropping it from the roof of the swim building if you can, then report back. :eek: :D

    I don't think the iPod has that glass technology.

    5 foot drop survival is definitely not an amazing story.

    You would think so if you saw my case, it's a flimsy peice of silicone.

    My Son-in-Law was an Army ranger and he dropped his older Ipod from a helicopter from over 150 feet. They found it later and it still worked :cool: He even has a dent in it to prove it.
