My father dropped it in front of the apple genius. Luckily, the phone was still replaced due to a faulty wifi card. I was fuming.:mad:

Mine fell off the bed onto the wood floor. Had a case on and the bed is low so no damage!

I have a friend who's 5 fell off a table at work. The phone looked to be okay, no scuffs, but the vibrator didn't work after that

Dropped 3 feet onto a ceramic tile floor. Damage=dented corner in aluminum band. Want to see a picture? Do a search on the word "tile."

Last year my gf shattered hers 6 days after getting the 4S. This year she dropped it taking it out of the BOX! It only chipped the side but when she went to get apple care 2 days later the genius started grilling her about it.

Went to an AT&T store and had my phone handled by an employee to try on an Otter case. He drops it to the floor. Lucky for him, no damage was done.

lmao, what did the genius say?
It was an awkward situation. He just said that "it's okay" a few times as he apologized. Surprisingly, the phone held up really well. It took us a few minutes to even find the dent on the corner. It was really small.

The new one is still flawless though! Papa won't be touching this one.

Poor Dad. I'm guessing that you'd rather had the genius drop it. :D
It worked out in the end. I almost had a heart attack for a few minutes though, haha.

Crap. I would have been furious! At least if something would have happened I am pretty sure they would have to give you a new one since he did it.

I've dropped mines quite a few times (on purpose) to prove a point to a friend with a s3... Needless to say they didn't have the same confidence in their phone...

Dropped twice so far with no cover:

Once from top of sub woofer onto table - about one foot and no damage.

Once from trouser pocket onto carpeted floor - about three foot and no damage.
