and SURVIVED! It is enclosed in an Incipio case that I got from Verizon. I took it out of the case and inspected the phone: not a scratch, scuff, crack or anything. Fell from about 4.5 feet onto hardwood floor. All of the hardware still works as expected, also. My phone took literally zero damage! I'm so happy I could shout it from the rooftops! I just figured I'd share with all of you in case you were looking for some durable case information. Sorry if this post is kind of stupid...again, I just had a wave of emotion go over me..one second my phone is lying on the ground, and I'm fearing the worst, and the next second I'm completely relieved that my phone is still in pristine condition! Woohoo!
