    Definitely more than 5 times…

    First 2 times I cared a lot… nowadays — as long as it's not on concrete or into liquids — not so much.

    a few months back i came in the house when it was raining outside.. I have tile in my entrance and slipped backwards on my back.. my iphone flew literally 10-15 feet in the air and slammed on the ground..

    I had been talking on the fone to my sister at the time.. and she said all she could here was a distant F#&$ while it was in flight..

    Needless to say.. it was fine.

    Definitely should've had "0" in the list of options. I think the majority of us are pretty careful with em.

    I've never dropped mine.

    More than 4 times and each one of those was because of the chord on the headset. I know, get a bluetooth headset. Well I have one and I've noticed it gives me a headache when I use it.

    Running on the treadmill, snagged the headphone cable with a flailing arm and down she went. Luckily it hit the tread and somehow missed my feet..... fell harmlessly to the carpet.

    Dropped it once from about 2 feet above a night table...it struck the corner of the night table flush on in the middle of the screen. I cried for a few minutes while I stared at the gouge on the screen...until I realized the gouge was only on the PowerSupport Crystal Film...best 15$ I've ever spent...

    Cheers.

    I think if I dropped my iPhone 5 times, it would be time for me to start attaching velcro on the iPhone and on my fingertips. :p

    My brother dropped his last week on some rough concrete. Scratched up the crome bezel. I'm still sick about it, I have nightmares!!

    You need to put 0 as an option in your poll. Haven't dropped mine yet.

    Only twice :(

    Once i was just careless and dropped it on concrete but the next time i was on a train and putting my back up on this holder and an assortment of goods fell out including my air, so my iPhone had to take one for the team.

    Once on the tile floor in our office's kitchen area and once at the gym on their hard carpeted floor. No scratches or problems though.

    My wife had this badass case on it, but she hated having ANY case on her 1st gen iPhone. She dropped it 4 times hard on concrete. It has a few scrapes on the corners but suprisingly the phone works great!

    It was a dark and stormy night. Well, night at any rate. I was changing out of my workout gear, and into my work pants, and my 3 day old iPhone falls from my pocket. It hit the tiles in the changing room. Tile.

    Bad, bad words emit from my mouth. And then, I do it. I temp fate. Cruel Biatch that she is.

    "Why couldn't it have been my Palm?".

    The Palm then slips from it's case, hits the same tile.

    Both are fine, but don't temp fate.

    5 times

    First time was the at a bar on July 11th. The night I got it. Haha

    Still, never had a case on this baby. It's too nice looking to shame it with one.

    PS... Awesome story. Haha. I need to save this.

    I dropped mine twice, and it was horrible both times. Both landed on the concrete face down. Luckily, I had my Incipio gel case on it and it didn't hit the concrete full on. :)
