    I forgot to zip my jacket pocket, and my A855 fell out of my pocket while riding down Mullholland Highway in Malibu on my ZX10R. I wouldn't have noticed except that my bluetooth headset beeped that it had disconnected while I was listening to music. I thought it would be destroyed when I went back for it. After picking up the battery and battery door, I turned it on, and it started up like normal. Unbelievably everything still works. This phone is a tank!! dancedroid The digitizer is cracked, but it still functions. I will probably replace it soon. Does anyone know of a guide for replacing the digitizer? Peace Out.

    These things are tough, no doubt.

    Amazing! Mine didn't even have a case on it. It must have done a bunch of cartwheels on the pavement after falling out at 65 mph.
