    Hi i am new here.

    I have had the moto droid for about a month and I love it. But over that month it has been cover in garlic butter and dropped hard about five times. It seems to be ok.

    What have you guys put yours through?

    My cat knocked it off the counter one of the first days I had it, scratched the black paint from the trim around the screen off a bit, but that's been about it. I don't leave it sitting anywhere where he can knock it onto tile anymore.

    Tell Papa John to cover you for a new phone. Still a bit bizarre for garlic butter to explode in your pocket!

    I'm pretty gentle with mine. Those damn two year Verizon contracts kind of force you to be easy on the phone!

    Did the papa Johns taste as good without the garlic butter?

    A few carpet falls from the nightstand, and a few slips of the hand onto my desk at work is the worst mine has seen.

    One good drop made small pits in the corner of the shroud... Then, last Saturday, I was using Orux with some offline maps of my local ski resort to record my tracks for the day and try to discover new stashes of powder in the trees.. I kept it in a VELCRO inside pocket of my jacket. The velcro failed and my phone dropped somewhere deep in the middle of a tight tree run. I was completely beside myself and I didn't have a tracking app OR a remote data wipe app installed. (I didn't know the velcro was failing yet as I believed I had just put it away hastily and didn't close the velcro.) Four of us went back to the top trying to find the same path in the trees. We spread out and starting along the trail and began calling it. Miraculously we found it after a few attempts. THEN, two runs later I PUT IT IN THE SAME POCKET, (because I didn't yet know it was the velcro) AND LOST IT AGAIN IN A MAJOR POWDER FIELD. Only one friend would come with me this time. As we began the same technique of spreading out and calling it, I began to have a more precise idea of where I may have lost it. (Right after a big crash into deep powder..) So we went there and called it and I could here it ringing way under the snow so I went to it and dug it out! Oh yeah, and guess which ring tone is my favorite that I was of course using that day.. GLACIAL GROOVE!! Its SO loud when ringer is turned up all the way. (Geez, the DROID speaker is just loud period, right?) LOL So anyway, all is well that ends well... We decided that it was actually kinda fun trying to find the phone...after we had found it again of course.

    Oh yeah, so the housing of the DROID seems extremely well sealed. I wouldn't ever test it against moisture unecessarily but mine is still working just fine. I'm SOOOO happy to still have it. I was seriously SAD when I lost it.. both times.

    I had scratched my screen on my old phone while having keys in the same pocket. Now with my Droid, I don't even like to have chap-stick in the same pocket. I too have treated mine like a newborn, especially before I got my Innocase.
