    So i was a in Vegas a few weeks ago, and i was showing my friend a video on my phone, so i gently tossed it to him. Well good old butterfingers missed it and went right out the window, 27 floors. After having security locate it i took it back to my room, and get this is actually turned on. ofcourse it was not usable but hey it did turn on.

    The worst part is i thought i had insurance on it, but the jerk from verizon never added it. my fault for not double checking and my fault for throwing it so i can only blame myself. But hey that is a trip i will never forget.

    Can I ask the most obvious and important question?

    What were you doing looking at your phone in Vegas? I can think of 500 things I'd be looking at before that

    Yeah i was pretty scarred at first when it went out the window because we looked out the window and saw a bunch of people running, but then they were just running to a taxi lol. it landed on the 2nd floor ceiling that has the a/c units on it.

    It is funny because if you look closely the outside bezel looks great with hardly a scratch lol. It must have landed on the glass?

    That's cool. And how old was your hotel that it still had windows you can open haha.

    Fun fact of the day: Most vegas hotels do not have windows that can open because of the high suicide rate. :D

    yeah I do not know of any vegas hotel that has windows that open. Suicide rate would be too high if they did...

    I go to vegas often, and most rooms have the pop up windows, but the older casinos like the flamingo and harrahs both have windows that open (the old towers) they dont open all the way, what they do is open about 12 inches inward kind of hard to explain.

    it turned on like normal, and the touch screen would start to work but with all the cracks i was not able to unlock my screen. But the good thing is my sd card was in tack so when i got my new phone i slide it in and was good to go.

    Damn! As far as non-screen-type hardware goes, it's good to know it can survive a 27-story drop and continue to boot into the OS like it did before. And yeah, I've heard stories of SD cards withstanding very high temperatures in building fires when the rest of the device it was in died. Solid state is the way of the future!
