    Hi, I've been pretty curious how durable the iphone / ipod touch is and wanted to get peoples personal experience with dropping their device. I was just wondering....

    Do you use a case?
    What case do you use for your device?
    How high was the drop (about how many ft)?
    What happened to the iphone / ipod touch (cracked screen, scuffs, wont turn on etc)?

    Thanks for the info hopefully others will find this info useful too!

    I've dropped my iphones and ipod touchs a LOT. They are durable for the most part, however my 2g iphone did get completely cracked screen when i went for a run and it fell like 2 feet.

    My current 3g's back plastic is cracked near the bottom, but it isn't a big deal.

    Oh and i've never had any cases.

    Im guessing dropping it on any hard surface cracked the screen? 2 ft doesnt seem that bad but maybe it cracks pretty easily

    I've dropped mine several times.

    The worst place I dropped it was on the sidewalk, no scratches or damage though.
