    For those of you who don't have a case on your phone, when putting your phone down on a table or any surface, which side touches the table? The camera side or screen side? Any recommendations?

    I put mine camera side down, and I always put it on top of something like a magazine or paper or whatever is on the table, I don't just slap it on the hard surface. Plus you can see the screen that way. :)

    Screen side down if it's prolong down time, camera for a quicky...

    I do it because the speaker is on the back, you can muffle the sound if it's on the camera side... I always charge my phone with screen down on my bed when I'm sleeping... The ringer volume is day and night when covered...

    Lmao couldn't resist that one. It's funny that Apple didn't use Evo or Droid X or Motorolla Droid to show antenna issues.

    I got a little rubber pad at work to set it on my desk face up, and face down at night on the screen so it doesn't wake me up with messages... :)

    I am ultra careful.With my phone and my kickstand is all scratched up. Didn't realize it till i was in the car and the sun was beaming down in it. Luckily No scratches on the camera lense. I thought i had to baby my pre but this phone i find being even more cautious.

    I am super careful with my phone and I have had a Seidio Active Limited case on my phone since week one. I also had full body Ghost Armour installed while I was waiting for my case because I wanted screen protection as well. I leave it face down because the case has a rubber lip that keeps it from sitting directly on the glass plus the screen protector is always a good second defense. I still managed to break the camera glass somehow. All I can figure is that I must have leaned against something that hit right between the rubber/hard plastic collar while it was in my pocket.

    I will be taking it in to the Sprint store tomorrow to see if they will repair it for free, otherwise I have the insurance and I will have to pay the $100 deductible to get it replaced. Right now I am debating whether I should talk to Seido and try to get them to upgrade me to a Rugged case after I relate my story to them.

    So back to the topic, after this experience I would never consider going naked now.

    Ouch dude sorry to see your camera cracked. That's in such a crucial area too. I have the same case as you and I love it. But seeing how yours still got damaged with it on makes me second guess how I treat my phone lol.

    I was loving the case too and I felt the phone was as protected as it needed to be with the kind of use I do with the phone. I guess you can never tell when something random like this can happen.

    I try to put my down on the camera side, I also try to set my on paper or magazine or something. I have tried cases with other phones and always end up taking them off. I got this new soft cup holder for my car, evo fits in there just perfect.
