    Your first Bionic Drop

    So when was the first time you dropped your new baby/Bionic and how'd it fair?
    --
    I'd just taken the rubber cover off of mine and set it half on the bathroom counter. It fell about 3 feet and the cover popped off and the battery fell out. But it booted up ok and with no visible damage. For some reason I didn't have any Internet for over 10 minutes and another reboot took care of that.

    I'm fine with it coming all apart if that helps spread the energy of the drop and protect the good bits..

    ** Knock on wood ** I've been very fortunate not to have any drops... And, for a while, I was rocking it nude!

    Yikes! Glad it's ok! Since Dec of 2009 I've only dropped my phone once (on concrete, no case - no damage) and that was enough for me!

    Dropped mine yesterday.. Just a couple hours shy of 1 week old.
    had the extended battery in it, & it was in the 'slide in' belt clip case.

    Unfortunatly, it landed perfectly on the top front edge, (just above the speaker) where this case doesn't provide any protection.
    So, now the top edge looks a bit like a dog chewed on it, but otherwise, no damage.

    Could I hire you to hold and dial the phone for my son? He is on his second Barrage (ruggedized phone). He liked the first one so much that we bought the exact same model on ebay so that he wouldn't need to deal with the new thick version. Some report running over the Barrage with a truck without killing it.

    Dropped mine two nights ago while sitting on the porch. Thankfully it was only about a foot and a half drop without a case. No damage or anything, but I felt a little sick to my stomach to say the least. Since then I've been handling it like a newborn baby!

    Mine will be in an Otterbox! ;-) I drop my current phone sometimes just to show people how awesome the otterbox is... Kids...don't try that at home! xD Good to know the Bionic won't explode!

    I had a friend who had a similar phone and it doesn't work well now because he ran over it with his truck but it was open!... When its closed its bulletproof! Not sure why he did it with it open... 0.o
