I was at a beach in San Diego and I was wearing shorts that had loose pockets with my phone in it. I was jumping around and it fell onto the sand, and when I realized it later on I figured the waves had already taken it. I even had video tape that you could see it falling out of my pocket and hitting the beach

Cinderella10383 July 21, 2012 at 1:49 am

My phone mishap actually involves my iPhone's case(s) I have purchased 4 Incase cases so far and have broken each one of them. I typically am doing something with my 2 yr old and then I drop my phone from fumbling around with him, the diaper bag and of course my purse. My 4th case is still on my phone as I cannot afford to buy another one. They cost 30.00 and I've bought 4 in the last year (wowzers). Thankfully though these cases have saved my phone from certain death and me from having to pay 600.00 I am currently not eligible to buy a new phone so I would have to pay the out of contract price to replace it. I become eligible in March for a new phone.

For New Years I went to Vegas for the first time. Being from Canada I left my phone at home so I didn't get charged extra money for roaming. However when I came home it was obviously dead but it never was able to recharge — I had to get a new phone and it was only after a year:(

My mobile mishap involved my new puppy…Now, one would think that an innocent little puppy with tiny teeth would not be a problem, hence why my phone was sitting on the coffee table. I was lying in bed watching a movie and could hear a bit of thumping on the floor every now and again but she had a big bone to play with so I didn't get up to investigate….big mistake. It was so chewed up and literally destroyed that it didn't even look 25% of the way it used to look. I still can not figure out how such tiny teeth could do that much damage. I have since learned my lesson though and *NEVER* leave anything out in the open that she could possibly confuse with a chew toy. 😉
