Default Actual Experience of a Case Saving Your Phone

So I finally pulled the trigger and ordered the HTC Aria today. I am a notorious phone dropper and have been searching for some real world experiences where someone who has a case, case/screen protector, or safety "skin" on their phone dropped it and it didn't break. Please report on what you are using, how bad the drop was, how your phone fared, and if you'd recommend the case/screen protector/combination. I'd like to order some phone protection so I can put it on when the phone arrives.

For the first time, i dropped my phone today!! about 4 feet height... only thing that happened was a scratch on the case..
the screen protector is also pretty neat..

Do you have a link to the case/film, how much was it, and how bulky is it?

here is the link..
Black Hard Rubber Case Cover +Film for HTC ARIA LIBERTY

It was 4$, free shipping..

It does add a lil bit of bulk but looks pretty decent and is quite light weight..

Here is an actual pic of my phone with it..

Thanks for the info. I was just curious if it dropped on the screen and how hard was the drop?
