My boy dropped my wife's Plus tonight on the bleachers at a softball game. Glad it was in a case. All is well.

Not yet and I have been naked since Friday so I am paranoid as all heck. I finally tried to order a case through Spigen tonight and it is on back order so I'll have to swing by Best Buy or AT&T in the next few days and pick up a case and screen protector.

I have yet to drop mine although I was worried when my teacher lightly took it to look at. I quickly got it back.

Well....wouldn't that be my luck...I dropped mine this morning and shattered the screen. And I also have the bent fame from pocketing it.

I hope you are kidding about shattering the screen and bending the frame?

No not kidding Screen is shattered, frame is bent slightly up starting around the on/off button.

First of all, I am sorry for your misfortune and I hope you get it replaced. Did the bend happen from the fall or from something else? If from the fall is it really a bend or an indentation in the frame? thanks for your feedback!

The bend was not from the fall. I carry my phone in my back pocket. To be honest I would not have ever looked to see if It was bending until I read the headlines. I do have insurance on it. I have an appointment with the Genius Bar this Saturday.

You don't need to use your insurance. Apple will replace this phone for free.

Did you have a case on it when it bent? Do you plan on carrying it in the front pocket from now on to decrease the chances of bending?
