    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

    Poor Dad. I'm guessing that you'd rather had the genius drop it. :D

    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.

    I haven't got my phone yet, but in a parallel universe, I dropped it twice. No damage.

    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.

    ----------

    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.
