    Thank goodness that is out of the way! Now you can relax a bit more; waiting for the first drop is torture :p

    It fell face down. I was expecting the worse. Was so relieved. I need to keep it plugged in while im driving, otherwise I forget its on my lap.

    I hate that. I always end up forgetting my phone is on my lap when I'm driving. I have dropped it out of my car so many times. Thankfully I had a case on it all those times...

    I used to do that as well, however once while I still used a dumb phone the cup holder got flooded, and it was time for a new phone.

    ----------

    I did the same thing today, I was walking down my drive way and for some reason the phone just went flying outta my hand, luckily I have this rubber case on it I got off of amazon for like a buck, but the case is great lot of protection, plus the clearish back lets light in for the camera.

    If you get a case that has some friction, then with most cars you can probably leave the phone in the divider between the driver and the front-side passenger.

    Did you have a case on yours? I dropped my phone once without a case in a parking lot. Scratches and dings on edges and back. From that point on, never left my phone caseless again.

    The second day I had my 3GS I did the same thing--ended up with little chips all around the edges on the glass. :(

    My car has a space I know was designed for the iPhone and as well as the iPhone integration works I know they had it in mind.

    Why do you keep your phone on your lap when driving?

    Glad there was no damage to your phone.

    You should keep your phone plugged in that way your battery is always good, and you won't be tempted to use it like for texting while driving. Besides, Siri should be more than enough function wise while driving.

    Siri is great for driving, but I still need to press the home button to use it. The home button is usually conveniently located in my lap
