    Had the scare of a lifetime last night as I slipped on a muddy sidewalk and my 2 week old Bionic flew out of my hands and onto the concrete parking lot. Cover and battery both came off. i knew it was over already. I picked up the back, then the battery and then slowly peek to see what i was sure a shattered glass. Much to my surprise, not a scratch on the glass at all. Couple scratches on the corners of the phone though. Put the battery in and snapped the back cover on then turned on and it works flawlessly. Thank you Motorola for building a phone that can give people a second chance.

    There have been a few knocks on the build quality of the Bionic. I'm thinkin this phone is very well built, props to Moto for that!

    Nice! Glad your Bionic survived. Hopefully you carry insurance incase your not so lucky next time. When it comes to building quality durable phones Motorola knows what's up.

    I would have prefered to bust my a$$ than my Bionic. LOL Glad both are OK.
    That's why I've ALWAYS bought Motorola phones (starting with a StarTac) they're made to Mil Specs. As a buyer for the DOD, I know that hammers may cost 400.00, but they'll stand up to any environment, shock, vibe, etc.

    I actually don't know how that happened. I got out of my car, walked 30 feet into home depot (Music playing thru Blue Tooth) and realized my phone wasn't with me. So went back to car, wasn't there. Looked all over, under cars, grass, etc.. Only made it 10 feet into home depot before I noticed it gone. So I used the music as a 'homing' device, and as I walked, it would start to fade out, so I turned around and it would start picking up again. Finally ended up standing next to a trash can right outside home depot.. I thought, nah .. but I had looked everywhere else, so dug thru the trash, and there it was, like that, on the bottom. So all's I can assume is I dropped it and it got ran over by a truck or something and someone chucked it in there.. music player still works tho :)

    But it looks like a bullet hit it... would have made a much more interesting story...

    wow, that's pretty stupid of someone, if I found a shattered phone I'd take it to customer service or to vzw and have them lookup the own my the esn... what an idiot, throw away a phone just because it was ran over.

    pretty impressive it still works though, the music that is.

    I don't see why.

    It's built solid and has Gorilla glass. It's light as heck, but that's because of the lack of a keyboard and the compact innards.

    Happened to my OG too, only it was a pool deck after about 20 months. Easy fix!
