    No one drops it intentionally....sooner or later, some Razrs are going to get dropped, as the OP demonstrated. The silicone case will go a long way in cushioning the shock.
    Well some people are rather careless with their phones idk how to explain it but im sure you have seen some people " IDC thats what i got insurance for" lol love that
    Yeah... so what if I am a country boy? Ill take whine over beer.... but i prefer Jack or Jim id take either of them over the others... so what just cause i wear boots doesn't mean i don't listen to rock and metal... and yes i live on a farm and own a tractor bigger than my truck (: got a prob?

As for the drop... don't act like you got the thing for free and you prolly wont break it i like people with the iphone "Idk wth happend man i dropped it and the whole screen shattered what a piece of crap" as much as i hate the iphone.. why are you dropping somthing in the price range of 300$$-700$$ it just seems dumb to me lol i try to take care of my stuff... maybe its because i buy it my self LOL
    Oh I don't know, I woke up that morning and decided "I think I'll drop my $700 phone! BRILLIANT!" Seriously? Are being serious with this? I forgot my cellphone pocket was unzipped. I bent over to tie my boots. BAM! Accidents happen.

    So based on all of this I called and placed the total replacement coverage on both my wife's and my Razrs. $14/month for peace of mind.

    Anyone else besides me take the risk without the insurance?

    I totally roll unprotected. I've done it with every device I have. A few have suffered some minor bumps and bruises, but no big deal so far. I figure, insurance is $7/month plus a $100 deductible with a max payout of two a year. If I have something catastrophic happen once in a year, I will have paid about $185 for the replacement. Not too bad, but it's still an expense. I figure if I break it, I can spend ~$100-150 on an older phone to tide me over until I have an upgrade for one of my lines. It's not the same as getting a lovely, brand spanking new phone, but I've saved $168 so far by not having it over the last two years; if I have a loss in the next year, I will have to spend $252 to "break even" with insurance. Depending on how far into a devices life cycle I am, I could get a very comparable (or even the same) device for within what I would have paid for insurance.

    I understand it's still a risk, but it's one that I'm willing to take. Heck, I could always add a line every year for Amazon's deal, get a $0.01 phone, and pay $9.99/month for it if I wanted to pay more monthly.

    Same here. Six years with VZW with two lines. In those 12 phone-years, damaged one phone (a dive into the ceramic throne), which occurred about a month before my eligibility to upgrade. Use the previous phone as a substitute until I became eligible for a new one. I have saved enough over those years to buy two phones at list and still come out ahead.

    I have always went unprotected. I bought a case for my razr but didn't like the extra bulk so i took it out. The very next day it slipped out of my hand and smashed in to the concrete. It put a small dent on the bottom but other than. That it was OK. I put the case back on for a few days but still ended up taking it back off again. So far i haven't dropped it again. Knock on wood.
