    I'm just wondering as I pressed on it a little too hard today and it didn't break, but I'm still concerned as well as once in awhile people tend to tap really hard on the screen and I'm wondering how much it can withstand till it breaks

    Well, I've accidentally sat on mine in my back pocket, I weigh 110 pounds, and it didn't shatter or break, but I'm sure there are micro stress cracks that may begin to develop if I make sitting on my phone a habit.. :p

    You can not break iPhone's glass with your fingers. It is very strong stuff.

    I'd agree with CyBeRino, but I would still be bothered if someone were rapping on my iPhone too. Remind them: it's not pressure sensitive.

    Remind the OP of this as well. Heat sensitive, not pressure sensitive.

    Well the reason I asked was I have an Otterbox Defender, and I used a Zagg on my Iphone and it wouldn't fit so I forced it in there, and it didn't work so I got sorta worried, as well. I know apple's products aren't "amazingly durable" usually (I pulled my Itouch out of my pocket and it was cracked already, I still don't know why) and I'm worried a small or simple hit would break it too aha. XP call me paranoid.
