    Thumbs up For those of you that question the Droids durability...

    Have I got a story for you! So I was an idiot and left my droid on top of my Ford Fusion and starting driving. Normally I'm extremely careful with my electronics, but I just forgot to grab it. Anyway so I was driving 65 down a 55 (cause I'm a badass) and a semi passes me. And you know how the draft a semi gives off pulls things towards it? Well it lifted my phone right off my car and slamed right into the semi, then it slammed into the ground going 65 mph. Then, to make things even more awesome *sarcasm*, a car ran it over. I thought "Well its definitely broken" I didn't even question the posibility that it would be remotly in tact. MAN WAS I WRONG. When I walked over in sorrow to my phone, I was surprised to see the whole thing completely intact. It only has a scuff mark on the top right and bottom left, and the screen is completely fine. The battery just fell out. And I typed this entire post on it. Moral of the story? Next time you drop your droid, don't sweat it. Haha

    Damn that is nuts, I had a similiar story with my LG Dare, the phone I had before my droid.

    I used my LG Dare as a timer for the batteries on my R/C Airplanes so I know to land before the battery dies. Well I left my LG Dare on the back of my Ford Fusion, no lie we have the same car, Fusion owners must be retarded. Anyways I left if on the spoiler of the car and drove about 5 miles down county roads and discovered it missing. Spent 3 hours searching for it. When I found it, it was completely unrecognizable. I sure hope this never happens to my Droid, none the less, if this would have never happened to my LG Dare, I would have never gotten my favorite phone, the Droid!

    A friend of mine dropped his droid from the bench at our high school baseball dugout, and the entire screen cracked so horribly the phone became unuseable. about two feet off the ground

    One time i was using my Droid and lost control of it. Fell right out of my hands and onto the floor. Did no damage to it. Scary thing is my Droid wants to be in control now!
