Default Abused Your Curve Yet?

Please Login to Remove!

Coming from an 8700, I was skeptical when the 8800 came out because everyone is talking about how easily they break. How are the 8300's holding up now? I occasionally drop my phone or bump into something, haven't had any troubles out of my 8700 yet. Anyone have any thoughts?

I dropped mine to a sidewalk last night. (Drunk emailing is dangerous!!) Now it has some gouges on the lower left corner. :(

Works perfectly and doest effect anything but cosmetics but I am still upset. I will be getting a new housing as soon as cnn.cn has them available.
