    One thing I always loved about the iPhone was it's strong glass and metal case...until it fell on my face and broke my tooth.

    The irony is that I'm an iPhone developer (Artist's Touch) and rely on the iPhone for my livelihood.

    Moral of the story: don't check email lying on your back with your iPhone held above you.

    Have you ever taken anti-biotics in your life?

    Yes -- why do they weaken teeth?

    Yea! That's the first thing I checked, of course. No scratches.

    talk about bad luck on both ends of the deal dropping iPhone and chipped tooth. Funny story to tell when people ask how your tooth got chipped though

    Please don't sit on the thing, you're likely to do damage and rupture the opening on the other end. :eek:

    I've done a simillar thing, I was lying in my bed trying to go to sleep but I couldn't so I picked up my iPhone and was browsing the Internet and the iPhone just felt out of my hands and was going straight to the floor!
    I got lucky and the iPhone somehow got stuck between the bed and the wall without any damage!

    Me too, bruised my cheek but luckily did not damage the phone. Maybe this is proof after all that the iPhone IS a safety risk and should be covered in warning stickers, or withdrawn altogether.

    "Users are advised to wear a faceguard if using this device in bed"

    Or the accelerometer could be programmed to detect that you are doing it and automatically shut the phone down.

    Sucks that it it did that to your tooth, but looks like it'd be easy to fix.

    True story: I was once spooked by the hydraulics of a nearby ride in an amusement park while I was holding my phone (not an iPhone), prompting me to throw my hands in the air, and my phone along with it.

    Little bugger must've flown 30 feet. I tried to catch it, but being as bad at sports as I am, it landed on my face.

    No harm done, though.

    This exact thing happened to me the other night, but instead of hitting my tooth, it hit my eye, and I have a tad bit of a black eye. I was with my wife in bed decided to check email, held it above me for kicks, she rolled over, hit my arm, boom right on my eye.

    Warning, iPhone can be hazardous if used while lying down lol....sorry OP, at leas the phone is cool

    Side note, never heard of anitbiotics hurting your teeth, I did hear marijuana hurt your teeth, which sucks, I tend to use mary jane alot here in california

    iPhone Saftey Guide.

    If used in bed, iPhone may slip out of your hands, causing an injuries. Eg, Chipping teeth. Blacking your eye, blindness, broken noses and or bruised faces. Use iPhone at your own risk. Apple is not responsible for any injuries.

    Wrong tooth.

    Man that sucks. You should sue apple making it so that every iphone sold comes with a warning somewhere on the phone indicating that "can cause tooth damage if dropped on face". :rolleyes: I dated a girl like that once.

    That is pure hogwash that taking antibiotics weakens your teeth in any way. Some of the Floxins ( ciprofloxacin, etc ) if taken below a certain age can have adverse effects on discoloration.
