on iday i waited for 8 hrs in line to get an iPhone, i got it, activated it and ignored my girlfriend for 3 whole days.....

i got the dlo leather case for it and i got the iskin ervo [black] too
now it is time for me to let it go....

i got a new job, working landscaping for the summer, this means that i cannot take my iPhone there or i will ef-it-up. so i am forced to take out the sim card and use my old blackberry that i do not mine getting hurt.

i will be limited to seeing my iPhone form only 5pm till i fall asleep, and that is not enough time to spend with it...
i will barely see my iPhone until school starts in the fall...

sad

i was wondering if there are any other people that are experiencing the same iPhone time restrictions like me?

yes.. that might be the case but i'll get to play with it in the fall.. it is not that i wana play with it , i think that the part that hurts the most is that i cannot even carry it with me, it just sits at home all day....

yes your right i am pretty rugged, i i think that i might take it one i get the iskin revo in the mail to make sure that i have some protection on it.. the only thing that worries me is that i might crack the screen ... since i might bump in to weed wackers or lawn mowers and such.. but i might give it a try one the revo comes in...

hmmm i dunno bout u but for my previous fones which all cost me 300$ up, i dun want ANY scratches period on the phone, i want to be able to sell it before i get a new phone like i did to get the iPhone with no problems at all with buyers bringin down price for wear and tear. I was able to sell my cingular 8525 for 400$ flat to make up iPhone price because my phone was in almost brand new condition. dropping $650 with tax for a fone is a whole new story and i can see EXACTLY why he wants it no where near the work hes doin. im sure the case will prevent a lot of things but in work like that you just cant take the chances. Im sure a couple hours without iPhone will be fine for you valdez, its not like your taking a trip to china and going iPhone less for a month.

I am in a similar situation in that I don't get to use the iPhone much. I'm in the UK for an extended visit and I don't want to pay for roaming. So the SIM is out of the phone to prevent accidental roaming plus I leave the phone at the hotel and use a cheap local phone with a local SIM. I only get to play with it in the evening sometimes using WiFi. Sad, isn't it?

I'm a " blue collar" employee and sometimes my job can be rough on a phone. I still carry my phone with me at work, but I am cautious, and try not to ding it up. I have some scuff marks on it but they came from an acrylic belkin case. I'm not scared to carry my phone. If it makes any difference I have found this phone to be fairly durable. I would not be afraid of taking it to work. I would just be careful!

You should check out the incase as well. I think its great protection for the phone. Although I do like the iPhone naked, its just too slippery.

PUt the freeking phone in your pocket and get a case for it. Its not a rake, wheelbarrow, chainsaw, dump truck, jackhammer, back hoe or skid stear. Its a phone. It will be fine.

I work at a warehouse loading packages into semi's for 12 hours a day, 3 days a week... and I've had my iPhone for a little over 2 weeks and I haven't seen any dents, dings, or scratches on it so far... I just keep it in my left pocket because I'm right handed and that seems to be the side where I hit it the least and have the least likely chance of resting a box on that side... 2 weeks and no worries for me... Well I guess thats just my story.:laugh2:
