    so in the middle of hooking up a trailer today i received a phone call. answered it quickly then threw it on the toneau cover of my truck and kept hitchin it up. When i leaned over to get my tin out of my back pocket and didnt feel the tight brick in my pants i quickly did a vehicle search and it hit me driving down the road, i look back and see a toneau cover .... with no droid. i flipped around and drove back towards home and sure enough about 4 miles back in the middle of a 4 lane highway was my droid laying faceup, slider open, crying. I jumped out and grabbed it before another car got the priveledge of completely destroying it. found my battery about 50 feet past the phone. never did find the battery cover! But with crossed fingers i popped my battery in and she fired right up. been using it all day without a hitch. It has some serious battle scars, but the screen, camera, and slider all work as if nothing ever happened!
    Droid does ... i'm a believer

    Can somebody get this man a battery cover? He's been through a traumatic experience.

    Wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong!

    It's not fly, bounce, skid, slide, then dodge...

    It's dodge, duck dip, dive, and dodge!!

    all i can say to that is NICE

    hey thanks i appreciate it, i actually still had my "loose" one laying around and just stuck some tape on the pad and it seems to be tight now so i should be ok. thank you very much for the offer though!

    there were quite a few more syllables added onto that as i was turning around lol

    i'm thinking they should just send me a whole new droid and make a trophy out of mine! :)

    lol no kidding!

    That's a great story! This phone is pretty durable.

    Can we get some pics of the Droid that survived this endeavor? :)

    your the man CRPercodani for throwing him a spare cover.

    this story is great. you should take a nice picture of it on a white background and photoshop an ad of Droid Does on it.

    this seriously needs some sort of dramatic reenactment.

    Ya know I think this is a great testament to the Droid. From day 1 I've loved the feel of this phone. It just feels substantial and gives the impression that it is a tank and just aint gonna give up without a fight. I've dropped mine once and pieces went everywhere and she didn't skip a beat. (Although not nearly as dramatic as this guys was) Loving the Droid

    'It's too heavy'.. 'it's brick like'... 'it's clunky'.. YES and it survives! :D Great story, I would wager that not one other forum here has a comparable tale!
