My friend dropped mine the day after I got it, and I dropped it myself on more than 1 occasion, but luckily no scratches because all the drops were either on carpet or hard wood floors no concrete..............yet.

Yup. I was in the car (passenger, not driver) and it was resting on my lap while I was looking for something in my glovebox. Hubby took a sharp turn and it slid right off my lap and down in-between the center console and the seat, and I heard it hit the metal brackets and plunk down onto the uncarpeted part of the floor. Hubby and I just looked at each other briefly in disbelief.

I retrieved it, and luckily, no harm done! *phew*

Dropped mine in a supermarket. I had already checked out, but forgot Mike's Hard Lemonade. Checking out at self-checkout and they card me. iPhone (in FoofPod case) goes tumbling to the floor. My luck, the unexposed corner hits the hard floor. It's a minor scuff, but it's a scuff. It bothers the hell outta me. I'm on my third case --- using the Belkin Slip Pouch and does a great job of securing the iPhone.

As careful as I am with my iPhone, there will still be times when it meets an untimely drop. For me, it came a few days to early. I think it would've faired better if it were in the Belkin.

Yup...

Well I had a tumble after a tiring trip. Got up heard the phone ringing went to pick it up off the nightstand and coordination still off down it went crashing to the wooden floor about a three foot drop.

Nothing to report other than it works and thank the heavens for that lovely rigid Casemate design. Strong and leathery resulted in no problems.

It actually didn't bother me because I figure it's gonna get dropped anyway so whats the point of getting mad, but he looked like he just $hit the bed, lol.

Dropped mine on carpeted floor when I fell asleep holding it. Luckily, it slid down my leg and fell on the carpet without damage.

So I take my iPhone out of the case to show a coworker the sleek design and of course as I am taking it out I bobble it and BAM right onto the desk. Little scuf mark but that was it.

That's what you get for putting it in that protective case.;)
Well I'm NOW iPhone naked after the Belken clear (DORKY) belt clip broke on a run to my car during a thunder storm. CRACK I hear the case open and flop the iPhone pops out onto the cold wet hard parking lot Now it fits nicely in my pocket and wont fall out. and is easy to get to and looks much better except for a little scratch that only I can notice

Main reason I don't want a case. Besides the fact that the phone looks damn good naked, is because your #1 most likely time of dropping the phone is when you're trying to dig it out of that snug case, or snap it from the holster. I just think about what I'm doing, everytime I pick it up or pull it out of my pocket.
