so I'm at my cousins house and out on the balconyleaning over while talking to a friend on the phone. It slips out of my hand and falls two stories into the rocks and bushes below! I freak out and almost start to cry lol. I knew before i picked it up that it was a gonner. I pick it up out of the rocks and thank god it was face up! I use the rubber black case that holds the ear phone so i took it off and brought it inside in the light. Guess what!?!? NOT ONE SCRATCH OR DENT! I am SO lucky! Im truly amazed at how well this thing is built! I don't recommend trying this at home! So current score is...

iPhone: 1
rocks and bushes: 0

PHEW!

Wrist strap for iPhone

can someone find me a wrist or neck strap that works for the iPhone? Maybe i could get the armband and wear it 24/7? Im open to suggestions cause i def. don't want THAT happening again!
I'm not sure about a "wrist strap", but I purchased an iSkin Revo case from www.iskin.com and purchased a lanyard that plugs into the bottom of the iPhone.

Haha.

Nobody here is atheist now right?

"My iPhone... it works! There is a God!"
Nope, I'm not an atheist. I could swear he owns an iPhone. I am trying to figure out how to text my prayers though. Trust me, when i look at my children I KNOW there is a God up there. I do think that he probably gave up his Treo for the iPhone though. I bet he didn't get stuck in a 2 year contract. I am also pretty sure he has the missing features we don't.

It landed in some bushes with a huge rubber case on it, so what?

Take the case off and drop it onto concrete from 2 stories up, see what happens. It isn't made of any magical materials lol.

First of all, YES i probably would have found a massive crack or split in the screen if it didn't have the rubber case on it. Im guessing it landed on one of the corners cause thats where the most padding is.

Second, GOD DOES have an iPhone! I talked to him yesterday and he is pissed too that we haven't gotten the new features! He said he was going to return it if we didn't get the iPrayer feature within one month. He said he is gettin bombarded with prayers that he needs to answer and the inability to send MASS TEXT messages is really gettin on his nerves. Anyway, i gotta call Apple for him cause he doesn't get a great signal up there and im gonna email him back tomorrow.
