    How do you react when others ask, "May I see your brand-new iPhone?"

    Are you talking about strangers or people you know? My response to a stranger would be "you are kidding right".

    With the 90-day accidental damage protection from Amex and other cards, there's no need to be smug about it.

    Every new iPhone comes out and this question is asked again. Common sense says no

    No I don't let others hold my iPhone. Only person is me and my wife (if she needs to use it).

    People can try the phone out and hold it at their local carrier. When someone drops or scratches your iPhone they'll say sorry but your stuck with the problem

    Every time the new iPhone comes out, you also get a 90-day accidental damage coverage if you're smart enough to choose the right card. It's also the period of time when you're most likely to be asked if they can see your new phone. There's no reason for people to be so uptight about it.

    ----------

    If they drop and shatter your iPhone, Amex to the rescue!

    you see with your eyes, not your hands.

    I'd rather drop my iPhone myself than someone else.

    Sure, its just a phone. This is assuming its someone I know. I wouldn't give a complete stranger my iPhone in fear they'd steal it. Lol.

    In school only close friends, for obvious reasons. Outside, no one

    Depends on who "others" are.

    A random guy at the train stop? Uh... no. My wife? I had better not even consider anything other than a resounding "YES".

    No, never under any circumstances.
    You can look, but DO NOT TOUCH!

    Sure they can hold it. I can't see any harm in it.
