Default So I dropped my Droid Eris from 5 feet onto asphault ...

I thought it landed screen side first, but apparently not.

The back battery cover looks like I fed it to a Doberman. It was seriously a HARD fall. Like tossed almost.

Everything is still working fine and dandy. It froze up on me once and I panicked but its OK now lol.

Good to hear. I'm glad it is still working. I think you can pick up a new battery door from Verizon or you could just drop (no pun intended) >$10 a pick up a case on ebay. From the sounds of it, the later may be your best option....butterfingers.

I did the opposite. 5 feet landing screen first on the asphault. Damn thing is scratched up to all hell now. Sadly, it is no where near as resistent as my iPhone screen was.

OUCH!!! that sucks! Mine is wrapped in fine cloth locked up in a box that is chained to my wrist with bubble packing around it. I am not drop conscious at all!!!! I feel for you guys, I know they said the screen is scratch resistant but I am not willing to take the risk.

Paid $8 for Best Buy to apply my shield. If it doesn't look right they will keep adding them till you like it :-), then picked up a very nice silicon case that still kept its nice form.

I agree that the silicon cases maintain the form of the phone much better than some of the hard metal and plastic ones, but ever since my mother referred to the old one that I had on my Eris as an "ugly phone condom" I can't get the image out of my head and just leave the hard plastic one on.

True story.

I actually find the opposite to be true. Many of my friends have scratched their iPhone screens horribly.

I throw my phone on the table, put it in my pocket with my keys (daily), rub it on my jeans to clean the screen, etc.

The other day, a guy at work was dissing on my iPhone wannabe phone, so I rubbed the screen on the tip of my pliers in a rather volatile fashion, only to reveal 0 visible scratches or markings.

You are soooo bold!!!!! Its nice to know that if anything gets through my screen cover it should hold up.....but then again if something does get through it my phone might not survive (falling bricks, pianos, or a truck running over it). Its nice to know that it has such a nice screen.

I've dropped mine twice, once on asphalt, once on linoleum - both times I'd estimate from about 4 feet up. Both times it fell screen down, back popped off, battery flew out - picked up the bits, blew off the grit, put it back together, no problems. I have one of the Verizon screen protectors on, no scratches either. Whew!

(Interestingly, the second fall was when I was trying to get the back off to do a battery pull (it wasn't making/receiving calls or sending SMS, although receiving SMS just fine) so it was actually OK that the battery flew. But yes, butterfingers.)

I think it really is circumstantial. Aside from dropping it, my Eris screen has also scratched while in my pocket. I don't really care anymore, it's a phone, they are prone to wear and tear.

Just the screen protector. I didn't like the way the full shield made the phone feel.

Ok now I feel better, cuz they installed my screen protector for free too...lol Have you ever tried those mirrored sp's? They look cool, but might be hard to see in sunlight... you wouldn't know anything about that though since you try to avoid the sun right? lol .I bought a couple off ebay, but I haven't put it on because I have a boxwave on that I love and I'm worried that it will be all fudged up if I try to reapply it. I love to switch up the look though. I have a few different colored cases too that all coordinate with a golla pouch I bought. Getting off topic here... wait, what is the topic? ha ha

My Eris flew out of my hands while i was in the back of my freind's truck last weekend, middle of the road, definately not tight. Fortunately, I had both (Big Red stock) silicone case and screen protector. Both took 100% of the damage. I replaced both and plan on keeping them on. They saved my Eris, "In case I trust"..

Yeah, I bought a pack of screen protectors at my Verizon store and the guy nearly snatched my phone out my hands and THEN asked me if I wanted him to put one on my screen. Granted, it was perfect with no bubbles. Guess he was just bored.

I like the feel of the 'naked' Eris, but I have a silicone case and a screen protector on mine. I havent dropped a phone in a couple of years, but it only takes one good fall to screw it up. Id rather play it safe.

Oh yeah? I took a sledge hammer and slammed it down on my phone. Not a scratch on the screen though the rest of the phone was in a pile of rubble. That's one strong screen huh?

My Eris is going commando. I'd like to think I'm responsible enough to not drop it. I also don't use it when walking around, trying to look important, so that may be what's saving me.

I don't drop it too often. You can't drop a mini-computer on the ground too many times without expecting it to be in pain.

I would go for the $2.99 amazon.com case again, if I got one. If anything breaks or gets ugly, it might as well be the cheap case!

8$, really? They can't do that you know, it's illegal :P. I always just do it for free, I feel bad that you're probably spending 30$ bucks on a case and 15$ on the screens, might as well have someone like me who does them every day do it :P. (this is for iPhones and touches..) I've been offered 20$'s as a tip, but I had to give it back to him because I like my job :P

I tried the flirt technique as well, but did not have the same results. The guy in the store looked at me like I had a third eye in the middle of my forehead. My wife said that flirting will only get me so far.

LOL well you have to know my story to understand. I got the phone from a Verizon reseller for about $150.00 less then Verizon was selling it (460.00). Took it to a Cricket Reseller and they programmed it for me onto their network. Then I went to Best Buy to get the screen cover and case. The case was like $10, and the Zag screen Protector was $24. I didn't want the bubbles on it from putting it on so they offered to do it for me (for $8 of course). It took them 3 shields to get it right. Soooo I think I got my $$$$ worth.

So, wait, you put screen protectors on for iPhones and touches? Does it matter where the touch is?

Hmmm, the guy at the store didn't look all that interested in putting the SP on my phone. Maybe I wasted my flirt for nothing.

Are you supposed to change out the screen cover? My husband and I have never changed ours.

Interestingly, the Verizon SA had a rough time applying the cover and got bubbles (ruining one cover) so I applied the next two to our phones, and had no problems.

I haven't found any b&m stores that sell cases for the Eris, so we just have the regular rubber/silicone....er...phone condoms. =/ Mine looks especially bad, because they only had clear and black, and guess which one the hubs wanted?

I didn't have to flirt, either. Although my fiancee was with me, so maybe she did me an unforgivable favor.

I always just do it for free, I feel bad that you're probably spending 30$ bucks on a case and 15$ on the screens, might as well have someone like me who does them every day do it :P. (this is for iPhones and touches..) I've been offered 20$'s as a tip, but I had to give it back to him because I like my job :P
Do you think a VZW rep would replace my screen protector since the original has a few nicks and scratches? I'm not sure if I want to change it myself. I definitely can't just keep this scratched SP on forever. That would completely defeat the purpose of having one in the first place. If I was okay with looking at scratches, I would just use the naked screen and deal with whatever damage occurs. Especially since most accounts suggest that I shouldn't have any problems.

Also, I really hate how my finger catches on the edge of the SP whenever I swipe the notification area down. REALLY don't like that. (Verizon brand protectors)
