Years ago I worked in my family's Italian restaurant. One of our cooks dropped a small fish carving knife and he went to kick it to break the fall. NOT A GOOD IDEA IN THAT CIRCUMSTANCE! We had to take him to the Emergency Room to have the knife removed from his foot. [TRUE STORY]
But for a phone, or a banana, you should be okay.
