    I have!! Four times.

    Firstly and secondly, when I just got the phone trying to get used to the feel of holding it.

    Third it fell about 4 ft up but luckily it was in the pouch that came with it, and last (about 1 min. later) dropped it on the floor. Thankfully it's a wooden floor!

    Luckily there isn't any cosmetic damage on mine either. But the creaking noise I started noticing might have been the effect of the drops.

    But so far, impressed how the phone has held up

    I haven't dropped it but inevitably will. I'm being extra careful until I get the InvisibleSHIELD. It'll be the first InvisShield I ever try so we'll see how it does. N3TWORK BURN3R did a review and said it protects it very well, but doesn't look that great and gives the screen a rubbery feel so we'll see.

    Maybe I'll just get a screen protector. Who knows.

    Actually dropped it once (while in the case) AND the other day I had it in the hollow of the door panel (door pull). I had just left the house and was waiting at the top of the street. Went to pull out onto the main drag and got the front end creamed by a Dodge Van. Once I got my chit together I went looking for the phone. Wasn't where I put it. It ended up down below there in the storage pocket. I'm figuring it bounced off the dash and back down there. And yes, it still works great and no scratches out of that ordeal either. Can't say the same for the car though. TOTALLED!!

    this drunk chick accidentally knocked it out of my hand, and the top right corner got a bad gouge in it. i got home and took the dremmel out to smooth it out. grrr... i hate drunk chicks.

    on the creaky thing...I and a few others have noticed it as well. The creaky noise seems to typically be coming from the little tab above the power button between where the bottom portion of the phone and the screen meet up. I took a razor blade to it and shaved it away, and now it's not creaky anymore.

    I dropped mine from about 5 feet onto linoleum tile. The battery cover flew off, but no damage.

    Dropped mine, almost crapped my pants as it was falling. Got a tiny scratch in the corner by the HTC logo. Not a big deal, can hardly see it.

    LOL.

    I feel that. Every time my phone is traveling down toward the ground my heart skips a beat.

    it's weird. it always happens when the moment you are trying to be very extra careful.

    haven't dropped my phone since and I am always keeping it in the pouch (that came with the phone) whenver I am not using it. it helped the few times I have dropped the phone

    I'm glad to say that I haven't dropped it yet. *knocks on wood* . . . But I handed it to my brother once and it almost slipped out his hands. I just give him a look as to say "I'll kill you!"

    Same haha. Oops.
    I dropped mine when I first took it out of the box, before I even turned it on.
    I'm useless.
