    Just wondering about the durability of this phone..I dropped mine on rough concrete the other day, and it still works great. It only got a few scratches on the back. Still, I cant get over the fact that I dropped it. It bugs my mind..
    So, to those who've dropped their's, how are your spicas putting up?

    I dropped mine onto the wooden floor in my kitchen, the back came off, the battery popped out, refitted, A-OK.

    Dropped mine just the other day...from about waist height - so about 3 feet? 4 feet?

    Got a couple more dings in the silver lining around the edge but it seems to be working fine. I am a little angry that I dropped it and dinged it though.

    I just really wish I could get one of those silicone cases that don't require me to spend massive amounts of money on shipping from 1/2 around the world.

    I dropped it once from the bed, about 2 feet, still works as good as the day I got it. I personally wouldn't get a silicone case because the phone really is handsome and I like showing it off and silicone makes it look... unrefined. But if you must get one, they sell tons in EBAY and shipping doesn't cost much, maybe $2.

    I am thinking about getting a leather case though. On another note, I got my screen protector from EBAY for $1.50 with free shipping :)
