    I accidental dropped my Tattoo yesterday from a height of 12 feet on to a ceramic tiled floor :mad:

    I expected it to be dead when I picked it up but was pleased to find it was in full working order. Either I was lucky or HTC got something right with this phone!

    you lucky one!!!!.
    This can be call an statitical anomally your phone should be dead.
    But glad to hear nothing happened.
    Perhaps your phone got some kind of protection? or was it the floor against your phone without any protection?

    I too dropped mine, while i was changing a bulb in an exterior floodlight it fell out of my pocket onto a concrete patio must have been about 12 feet, i too expected all sorts of deadness, but lo and behold with just a few minor dents to the case everything still works ok, had to reformat my sd card though to get downloads from the market ????

    Mine has now died.
    The touch screen started playing up a couple of weeks ago, when I touched a button on the screen it reacted as if I'd pushed the button to the right of it, recalibrating didn't resolve it. Then it stopped charging, I think a pin snapped in the USB socket.

    I have to give it to my HTC, it has lasted over a year after what I have put it through but that is my recent one that I got from insurance, but my other one didn't even last 1 washing machien cycle. (I forgot it in my pocket)

    after two years of being subjected to drops, and water spillage my tattoo has finally decided it has had enough!
    I think HTC really did get something right here, this phone has been the most durable i have ever had. In the time I have had mine my Husband has had a Nokia which has broken and needed repair at least 3 times! shame my Tattoo has decided its had enough, hopefully it is something fixable, despite being dropped in a bowl of water insurers say it is not water damaged!
