    So this afternoon I was walking to my office in downtown Chicago - as I was crossing Madison Street at Dearborn - I get hit by a bus! I didn't even realize it was a bus that hit me at the time but my arm shot up and my iPhone went flying across the street. I was alive and that was enough for me - so I ran immediately to the iPhone and besides a couple of small nicks and two restarts - the phone survived. This is one tough phone!

    I'm really glad your iPhone survived its trauma but are you okay? After all, it only took a flight but you were hit by a bus!

    Are you OK? If I got hit by a bus that last thing I would think about would be m y iPhone.

    The most important thing is you're ok--screw the iPhone, did the bus run a light or something?

    Let me get this straight... you get HIT BY A BUS and the first thing you do is run for your iPhone?? Wow, that's dedication. Apple should put that in one of their commercials.

    I take it the bus bumped the side of your arm or something instead of full-on running you over.

    Yeah pretty much - I was crossing in the crosswalk and the bus "bumped" into my arm going about 10-15 mph - throwing me off my balance and sending my phone flying.

    I honestly didn't even realize that it was bus initially. As far as my health goes - i think I am ok my arm is very sore and kind of tingly - I'll have to see how I feel in the morning though. Thank you everyone for the concern and trust me if I were seriously hurt - forget about the phone.

    Just curious, were you watching where you were going or paying attention to your iPhone (texting, watching video, etc.)? I only ask, because my teenage daughter will walk through parking lots etc, while glued to her iPhone texting.

    Glad that you are ok.

    Was it in a cover? Seems for most, it can take the brunt off of any scratching, or dampen most falls...
