    No, this is entertaining to say the least; keep up the banter. That's what makes this community alive!

    lol, and the cost to repair it? let me guess? a cost of a new iphone, to me from that picture it did not survived its barley usable... i mean would you use your iphone like that? that is definitely broken

    Man, if that were to of hit someone, probably a either way there's most likely a chunk taken out of that building at least to some degree.

    I mean take your iPhone 4 now and throw it at something it'll do some damage!!!

    When they say "survived", they mean it didn't shatter apart into a thousand pieces like some electronic devices would have if dropped from that height. Theoretically you could buy new glass and repair the phone, although I'd still be a bit wary of the condition of internal parts like the gyroscope and accelerometer.

    Hey mom! What is that? A bird? A plane? No thats just an iphone?!?!? ::

    What wouldve been funny but unfortunate was if the iphone actually hit someone or broke an arm or something! While People r signing their cast, theyd be like "yea i broke my arm getting hit by a falling iphone"

    Possibly, but a flip phone Isn't the remarkably engineered handheld computer that can do everything besides maybe make your breakfast and isn't made out of glass like the iPhone. I could definitely see it surviving landing on grass, but the top of a building? Dang! Truly remarkable.

    I see these and just don't get it. *knock on wood* I have dropped my iPhone4 multiple times and it has been flawless. I threw a simple plastic shell case on it that came free for the antennagate issue and it has been golden.

    My 3G I broke every month for the most simple things.

    That is cool... so the damage is the same from terminal velocity and 5 foot... kind of looks like apple wants you to replace the front and back at any distance...

    Maybe you should umm... NOT DROP YOUR PHONE!!! Or, put a cheap case on it. The iPhone was not meant to be dropped onto concrete. Must be a design flaw...
