    i do this as a great sales pitch, people love what it can do but when i throw it, and i dont mean drop it on the flor people are amazed at how robust it is, does everyone else agree that it isnt in as much need of being wrapped up in cotton wool as some people think

    I have dropped mine once and it still works great!!I was a little heated about the scratch on the side but it was small so im cool with it.
    The crime is undetectable by the feds cause in the minds of our kids is where the track is...and music is potent and straight to the soul...so its much more addictive than crack is!!!

    It may be durable but no way when I am at work am I throwin' my BB to the floor for a sale LOL... I understand how that gets attention though I once drank some laundry detergent to prove it was no toxic LOL it sucked and tasted like butt, but it worked LOL Hope you got insurance for your BB though! Welcome to stacks by the way!

    At work sometimes it falls of my belt or pocket, hits the concrit and then I step on it. Finally I realize there's my phone.

    Ye in my case protection wouldn hurt.

    Throw it on the pavement. I dropped mine and the back cover popped off and the latch that holds it closed broke off and disappeared. Now I have a piece of black tape keeping the back from sliding open.

    I used to work in a store that sold electronic stuff and would throw an HP-12C (probably the best calculator ever made) on the floor too. The Pearl does not strike me being as tank-like as that HP was. And i don't know if I threw it so much as tossed it onto the carpet hoping for a good bounce... But based on what I've read here, a light toss should cause the battery door to fly off, the pearl button to stop tracking down, Opera mini to cease functioning- all requiring either a battery pull or an immediate OS upgrade to fix!

    Just kidding stackers. The regulars here are the most selfless and helpful members I've ever encountered on a forum.

    Re: i throw my bb on the floor every day read on

    Yo I was taking my girl to school and was putting her bag in the backseat for her. I had no pockets in my shorts so I was carrying my Pearl and wallet in my hands. Well i couldnt get the door open and to free my hands i placed my pearl and wallet on top of the car.

    I then got into the car and drove my girl to school...but about a mile away from home on the street appropiatley named Main st, i heard a sudden "thud".

    OH ****........My Pearl! My wallet! My bb has one of those rubberized covers so im guessing thats how it stayed on my car for so long. I pulled over immediatley and booked it down the street...My Pearl was lying face down and my wallet and contents were scattered. I could see cars coming and quickly felt like A character trying to get a little child out of the way of a bus.

    Turns out, my pearl had 2 little scratches on it but they were both under the case! weird. So they are still covered up and it still works GREAT.

    Re: i throw my bb on the floor every day read on

    Very funny. I was actually just coming to post about how I dropped my pearl last night. I was pissed. The back cover flew off the battery popped out. I got this huge ding on the corner but ther worst part, like someone said above, is that the battery cover button broke and its now driving me crazy cause the cover keeps coming off. Is there any way I can get a new cover button?
