I've dropped mine a few times from the top of the bar, my desk, my coat pocket .... thankfully - I have the Best Skin Ever on the phone which has kept the phone unscathed - lucky I guess.

Same here, I've dropped my 3-4 times. The chrome sides have a few dents, but thanks to my Best Skin Ever my Pearl is still scratch free. =)

A Few times!!
i've dropped mine a bunch of times, the worst by far being one night while riding around on a quad, perhaps mildly intoxicated, and i managed to fling myself off of it. After picking myself up, my pearl was no where to be found, granted it was pretty late at night and no one had a flashlight. I was pretty sure if i found it that it would be toast, especially after the light snow we got that night. But the next day after retracing my path i found it in a patch of weeds with one little nick on the side and no other problems, i did of course immediately pull the battery and let it dry out for 24hours or so. Other than that horrifying incident i've dropped in out of my truck, off the porch, desk, bar, etc. and that little dude has really held up suprisingly well. Still scares me everytime i drop it though, perhaps i should invest in some sort of rubberized case for it...

I dropped mine one time, on the street. Some dings on the plastic chrome-like finish on the right side...kind of a bummer--but works like a champ still.

Angry Dropped mine too

I dropped mine about 35-40 times never any problems... had it clipped to my hip on monday and my legs decided not to work properly... Anyone know how to transfer contacts from my bb to my sim? I cant see anything but a black and white kaleidescope on my screen. I need the contact info so I can use an old junk nokia while my baby is being replaced...

OMG idk what i would do if i ever dropped my Pearl. I did drop it once, well it slid off of a coffee table, but luckily there was a pillow to cushion its fall and it only fell around a foot. Good thing i have a silicone skin and BSE skin on there.
