    It was a gloomy cold day while walking through a small shopping center in my town. my droid x vibrated in my pocket and as i was lifting it out, it slipped. i watched in slow motion as it fell to its doom and heard the loud pop as it hit the cold grey concrete.

    You've served me well DX....i will never forget you

    would that thin rubber thing really have saved it? the corners are what causes it to shatter like that right? i guess it may have lessened the impact. oh well. i'm gonna try to find a work around and figure out a manufacturer defect that i might be able to get replaced for free =) haha

    At least you have insurance. There is no work around for your acident and as Martin stated talk on insurance fraud is not allowed in the forum.

    Oh its not fraud! I apologize if it came off like that. My headphone jack is actually messed up. My phone works but my headphone jack is loose and disconnects if I move whatever I have plugged in. Is that considered a manufacturer defect?

    You should have RMA'd it before you dropped it, then.

    Now that it's been dropped, any damage will be blamed on the drop. You will have to pay the deductible, and be more careful next time.

    Nick we are not here to tare people appart. This is a Family Friendly forum. So let's keep it that way. Also discussion on any type of fraud in this forum is a quick ticket to ban city.

    I did the same thing with my X in the market last week, but there was no damage. The X was in a Seidio Active base, and I really believe the hard corners of the outer skeleton case and the 2.2mm rubber surround under the hard side skeleton case saved the X.

    The next morning, I got curious and removed the case, and the battery door had disloged. But it snapped back into place and no damage at all to the X. dancedroid However, it appears the sudden stop on the floor dislodged the battery cover.

    So, I do recommend a case.

    Oh that's nothing guys l,dropped mine in the lake one day when I was fishing only had it for 10hrs. No insurance at that time either and it was a $400.00 costly fishing trip. My husband still teases me to this day when the fish aren't biting to call them and tell the fish to bite. Lol

    Just curious, but does your phone still function (was it just the screen that got busted)?
    It has a HDMI output port...

    With a laptop with a busted screen, one could hook it up to an external display and still get functionality (but no more portability).
