    Have I got a story for you! So I was an idiot and left my droid on top of my Ford Fusion and starting driving. Normally I'm extremely careful with my electronics, but I just forgot to grab it. Anyway so I was driving 65 down a 55 (cause I'm a badass) and a semi passes me. And you know how the draft a semi gives off pulls things towards it? Well it lifted my phone right off my car and slamed right into the semi, then it slammed into the ground going 65 mph. Then, to make things even more awesome *sarcasm*, a car ran it over. I thought "Well its definitely broken" I didn't even question the posibility that it would be remotly in tact. MAN WAS I WRONG. When I walked over in sorrow to my phone, I was surprised to see the whole thing completely intact. It only has a scuff mark on the top right and bottom left, and the screen is completely fine. The battery just fell out. And I typed this entire post on it. Moral of the story? Next time you drop your droid, don't sweat it. Haha :)

    Damn that is nuts, I had a similiar story with my LG Dare, the phone I had before my droid.

    I used my LG Dare as a timer for the batteries on my R/C Airplanes so I know to land before the battery dies. Well I left my LG Dare on the back of my Ford Fusion, no lie we have the same car, Fusion owners must be retarded. Anyways I left if on the spoiler of the car and drove about 5 miles down county roads and discovered it missing. Spent 3 hours searching for it. When I found it, it was completely unrecognizable. I sure hope this never happens to my Droid, none the less, if this would have never happened to my LG Dare, I would have never gotten my favorite phone, the Droid!

    A friend of mine dropped his droid from the bench at our high school baseball dugout, and the entire screen cracked so horribly the phone became unuseable. about two feet off the ground

    One time i was using my Droid and lost control of it. Fell right out of my hands and onto the floor. Did no damage to it. Scary thing is my Droid wants to be in control now!

    I got the Droid the day it came out and since then I've probably dropped it about 7-10 times (because I'm cool like that) and only minor scuffs. Yay Droid!dancedroid

    Well you were just unlucky with that. That happened to me with my old phone before I got a Droid. I use to have an LG Dare.

    i got lucky the other day too...knock on wood. i had it in my pocket, i was carrying my 1yr old son in my arms, and my 6yr old son was walking next to me. the older one decided to put his bottled water in my pocket with my droid, as we are walking down a gravel trail. well the cap wasn't on right, and my pocket started feeling wet, i reached for my phone and pulled it out, as my 1yr old also reached for it. he knocks it out of my hands, it falls face first onto the gravel from waist high, flips over, and lands screen up. only damage was a few small scratches on the glass over the touch buttons.

    Man, that's a crazy story! Droids are tough.... you got lucky you didn't damage the semi...

    I got a good..being stupid and leaving stuff on your car roof story.

    I was once driving through the mountains, and I pulled over to take some pics. I was using my new $400 lightmeter to get my readings. While I was packing up my other gear, I. Stupidly set my lightmeter down on the roof of my car and then forgot about it. My error struck me when I was pulling into my hometown after driving about 5hrs. Upon arriving at my house I stepped out to happily find it still on top of my car! I could not believe it had mad the journey all that way. I attribute its survival to luck, the air foil on my bike rack, and my dirty car providing a nice rough surface.

    Impressive but a single data point does not make a trend (regardless of topic).

    I also had a Dare prior to getting the Droid, and the Dare was by far the WORST phone I have ever had. It couldnt hold a thumb to the old 4400

    Well, my droid turned out to be a transformer! Shoots radio signals, and catches em.... plays VHS tapes and laser disks! And prefers to sleep, rather than save humanity
