    Every phone I've owned I've dropped in excess of 20 times, and that includes the samsung intercept. I just upgraded to the Motorola Triumph and fell in love with it. One problem though, I dropped it once, just once and the screen cracked. I read that the Triumph has Gorilla glass, but it wasn't the outer glass that cracked, it was one under the top glass and has interfered with the touchscreen. I can barely use it now. I have insurance and can get a new one for a hundred dollar deductible. I can't have this happen again, and I'm a phone dropper, is there a way to keep this from happening without switching phones? I've found a lot of protective screens, but they all just say scratch proof, I don't know if any of them help with the inner screen from cracking. I looked into the otterbox covers, they look great, but have yet to develop one for the triumph. So, any suggestions?

    I use rubberized floor grip tape - non-skid tape for walking surfaces - cut into strips and applied to edges of phone. Gives a great grip and a bit of armour if needed. I also have a couple strips of Velcro (carpet side) attached to the back of phone so I can stick it on dashboard of truck, etc. Pic's upon request.
