    Weird question i know. But could sleeping on top of your unprotected with no case/protector iphone 5 (rolling over and the phone ending up under your body or the phone ending up under your head beneath the pillow) result in a cracked screen? Is there any consequences, IE the structure of the screen weakening? (excluding radiation going to your head haha)

    I would say you are more likely to knock if off your bed and have it crack (hardwood floor or night stand) than to have it crack from rolling over on it. A bed is going to give.

    Unless your bed is rock hard, I don't think it should be problem.

    I cannot believe the questions asked on this forum.... But to answer your question, I would think it is possible, but unlikely.

    I sometimes listen to music when I fall asleep... mine is in a case but I'll wake up on top of it sometimes... seems OK.

    Right? This is....up there, even for this place. There are 4 things in my room capable of playing video while I'm in bed, my phone is the last one I'd opt for.

    I once fell asleep with it on my bed and woke up with me completely rolled over onto it with my abdomen. I weigh around 150lbs. Unsurprisingly, I didn't manage to crush/crack it.

    Weirdly, my phone was showing no service when I woke up and found it underneath me....

    ..... ANTENNA GATE?!?!??!!!?? ;)

    I'd be more worried about getting brain tumors, not phone cracking.

    no, according to one person, you can run over the phone with a fire truck and it will not take any damage so unless you weigh over 30 tons your ok

    Do you truly believe that any answer you could get to this question would be any kind of guarantee that the phone would or wouldn't crack?

    What is it about the iPhone that makes people utterly allergic to deciding the most basic things for themselves?

    Follow up question: If I'm talking to someone on my iPhone and I can't hear the other person should I turn the volume up? Maybe I need to add a poll for this one because one opinion would not satisfy me.

    Here is the poll
    1) turn the volume up
    2) turn the volume down
    3) don't touch the volume
    4) mash your face into the phone to hear better
    5) hang up and call police
    6) ask a genius
    7) throw iPhone on the ground
    8) number 7 plus stomp repeatedly on the iPhone and post (can't hear-gate) to macrumors
    9) Switch to android because you have a friend who knows someone that said their phone is always the right volume
    10) return iPhone 5 and go back to using your iPhone 3G because they don't make em like they used to

    I hear you.
    Is it possible for the screen to crack if you roll over it or put your weight on it.
    Yes, it can happen.
    You want to find out go for it and let us know:D

    If u hadta ask, u probly don't care, so go4rit. If broken, u got the perfect excuse for the next upgrade.

    Same go for "Should I keep my phone in the pocket during a downpour."
