    My iPhone flew out of my pocket when I was running out the door, and it dropped 12 stories to a bunch of rocks which probably helped pad the landing. The front of the iPhone is completely fine, and luckily the phone still works.

    i expected much worse. my ipod mini sustained damage similar to that, although it was only from it falling out of my lap as i got out of my car.

    i'm surprised the glass didn't shatter

    I can't believe that the front didn't take any damage at all. :eek3:

    :werd: That was the only thing I could think about while I rode the elevator down to pick up my iPhone.

    Nope, no case. It sounds like it should have cracked, but I'm not going to complain about it :noes:.

    Not using a case is a bad idea.
