    Had to share this...my daughter just replaced her glitchy gold 5s and took off on a road trip to six flags magic mountain and Disneyland. She wasn't there an hour when her brand new phone went flying 50 ft off a roller coaster at 50 mph! It had a case on it but not the best. The security guys said they couldn't look for it until the ride shut down, about 8 hrs away. Naturally she was very upset and asked me to track it. Long story short, after playing the sound and over an hour looking, the security guy found it! The phone held up really well considering. It's working but definitely seen better days!

    That's great y'all were able to find it using Find My iPhone. As long as it still functions, you can use it, but of course now the value has dropped.

    I never go anywhere high like that anymore and if I do then my iPhone will be in my pocket. However, even with a nice case on it, I am worried a high drop will mess the iPhone up. Of course I won't test that as people have on YouTube. :)

    I've found my girlfriends iPhone several times, although we've been unsure if it's in the bushes or the library. Hehe. :p

    UPDATE... She took it to the Apple Store today for replacement through her AppleCare and they replaced it for free. They were impressed by the durability of the phone.

    Awesome! Thanks for the update. AppleCare can be good especially in this case. :)

    Did you mean AppleCare+? The deductible is usually $79, so it's cool that they waived it.
