I have always wondered how scratch resistant and strong the screen really was on my vibrant. I was just too chicken ever to put it to the test. Today, my phone unwillingly went through that test. I have always rescued pitbulls to save them from the wrong people. I'm on my 3rd one and thought that with my 4th dog, I would rescue something different. Her name is Ruca(best Sublime song) and she is a Blue Heeler b.k.a Austrailian Cattle Dog. Smart as all hell and just as mischevious. I've had her since she was 6 wks 3.4 lbs. Ms. Ruca is now 4 months and 18 lbs of pure chewing terror. By jree033 at 2010-07-30 Well I was watching a DVR'd episode of this weeks Tosh.O. I kept hearing a crunching type noise under my coffee table but was way too interest in this weeks web redemption that I didn't bother to investigate. After it ended my wife said we had to go to her parents house. So I start gathering my things while complaining at the same time. I grab my keys, my wallet, my pho.....Hey, where the hells my phone? I tell her to call it so we can find it faster. I hear her ringtone "Waiting for my Ruca" coming from the same exact place where I heard that crunching noise. My little devil managed to rip apart my gel skin case and was working on seeing what the inside of a Vibrant looked like. There was what looke do be 5 deep scratches that go across the screen from side to side by the earpiece. Some deep gouges in the same area around the monochrome rim that goes around the phone. I though I was going to have to look at those scratches that were on my screen for the rest of my ownershop. I grabbed some eyeglass cloth and buffed them out. Everything works perfectly fine accept for where the rim is messed up. It cuts into my ear but thats nothing that new gel case from tmobile won't fix.

I hope this puts some of your guys' mind at ease. PS. I took the test even further. Since I don't have a case right now it makes the phone kinda slippery and it fell outta my basketball shorts and right onto the ground screen first when I was getting out of my car at my in-laws house. No Scratches!!!!
