Thumbs up Just how RUGGED is a 7100T???

Please Login to Remove!

OK,...so how do I put this....I run a large manufacturing company and have an anger "issue". I have on certain occasions taken the management style of a 3 year old and like to throw things. There was a 12 month period where I went through 6+ cell phones. I am not insurable anymore (quite understandable). So anyway,...2 days ago I decided to have another management discussion and my 7100T just HAD to meet a wall 10ft away at full force. Alas!!!!! Not even a scratch! It works perfectly fine! My new mantra is "F" the rubberized "brick" I had previously! I think it was a motorola, yuck. Now don't misunderstand me, I don't recommend you go around throwing your new 7100T against a wall. But it is good to know it has some durability not found in MANY other devices!

wow...and mine falls out of the POS holster that comes with the 7100t (the elastic gets stretched out in about a month and no longer holds the phone in very well at all) falls about 3' tops and the t-mobile short-cut key pops half-way out :( not quite broken, but still annoying...not sure if it's worth calling TMO about it to see if they'll exchange it...cause that's crap...one drop, one problem.
