    My iPhone almost dropped some times but I always manage to catch It before it touches the floor. But one time it fell pretty hardly from about 1 meter on marvel floor and luckily it's still perfect. It always makeS my heart stop though haha

    Feel, not felt. ;)

    And I've dropped mine twice, a 30cm drop from my hand to desk, then a 100cm drop from my hand whilst sitting to the floor. It's carpet though, but didn't have a case on. I think I got a few minor scratches from the first drop, and I felt like saying a bad word. Oh, wait! I did say a bad word :p

    I wanted to cry..... My car was stuck in a snow bank and I pushed it out and while I was pushing the car my iPhone fell out of my coat pocket... I got home and realized I didn't have my phone.. then I drove all the way back to where I was stuck... and right when I saw my phone laying in the snow..A huge plow truck comes and runs it over.. were talking like 3 ton truck here... bad stuff man... bad BAD stuff... I took these pics with my new iPhone 3G, which i received fro Christmas... Enjoy..

    Squaretrade has accidental coverage along with standard warranty as an option. No worries here.

    About 3 hours after i picked up my 3G, having queued from 5am and being the 1st person to leave the store with it, got into the car with the phone in my thigh pocket and it managed to flick out and hit the concrete .... was so scared but it managed to survive

    If you find a lost iPhone some where... can you change the SIMCard and start using the other iPhone without problems?
