  • Any phone's gonna bust if it falls, slides, and hits something. That's why we stick with the cheapest phones we can get instead of the expensive fancy ones. I have an LG flip phone that cost $30 with a $30 rebate and it's lasted me over a year already.

  • I like my Blackberry Curve. I'm actually replying to this post on it :) I have insurance on it and I pay $5 a month for the coverage. With 2 kids under 3y/o it's soooo worth the protection! I have att and the edge coverage is pretty good.

  • Um. ALL phones can break when dropped and slide across the floor. Not just iphones. Get the insurance next time, the deductible is cheaper than buying a brand new phone. Phones don't like water either...dropped 2 in water and had to replace them.

  • I like my Blackberry Curve, too. I have dropped it a few times, luckily not on hard floor, or it was in it's case. My MIL dropped it, on the tile floor. But nothing happened to it.
