I just got up from reading the forum and grabbed my phone to head to a different room. It literally flew out of my hand and hit the floor and I saw something go flying from it. My heart dropped. Relieved to find out it was actually the front half of the case that had come off, and the phone had no damage. Case is snapped back on now and all is okay. I have the red/black gradient case and it's pretty smooth. Now I'm wondering if a case with some grip on it would actually be better. It wouldn't be for people sliding it in and out of pockets but as far as actually holding onto it, it would help. At least the case saved the day with no apparent consequences that I can see yet. Can't believe my first dropped cell phone was this one!!! And by the way, when I got my phone in the store yesterday it was a total non-event. No big fanfare, no line, nobody even looking at the display unit or asking about it. Just a poster in the window. Nobody even knew it existed! Guess I didn't need to worry about them running out.
