Since then (and despite having had ordered another Krussel retention system from overseas) my mobile has been dropped somewhere around at least 25-30 times. I kid you not! I've also taken it to Thailand twice and it sweated out 6 months with me in the Solomon Islands in 2007.
It got dropped again this morning. It was shut and fell off the training bike I'd just been working out on, using the phones inbuilt video player and bluetooth headphones for my sights and sounds :-) Anyway, it landed on the floor with a sickening thwack and the glass on the front cover now has a small crack across the bottom right corner.
Amazingly though, despite all the drops and the extremes of heat/humidity it's been exposed to, it's hardly missed a beat and is still working like it first did. I have to say, despite a lot of negative comments I've seen about this mobile, I'm hugely impressed by the toughness of it.
Anyone else out there as careless as me but in possession of a mobile which can take the knocks?
