    now, the question to ask is... are there any electrical guys on the forum that might be able to fix his phone and replace the screen?

    Did you look at the pics? haha

    I think your BEST bet is to start asking around the forum for someone that just recently upgraded! Like me for instance...I have an HTC Titan that I just haven't put up for sale yet... Someone like that, but from Australia.

    Hey - look at the bright side. At least your phone didn't hit anyone. Then you'd have a broken phone and probably many legal problems.

    74m...hm. Mine fell from my lap while getting out of the car, landed facedown and the screen shattered. I did this Xmas Eve... So merry Christmas to me. I went out the same week and bought another one.

    So just after midnight on NYE as I was taking photos of the fireworks from the Story Bridge in Brisbane.....tragedy....My phone swan dives over the railing falling 74 meters to the concrete below.

    Amazingly the photos I had just taken had already uploaded to skydrive via 4G so I still have the last few snaps of the countdown with my friends.

    To my surprise though as I looked on in horror the screen was still on. By the time I got down there though it was off..

    For such a big fall it fared pretty well though.. the outer casing shot off to one side and the front screen is smashed but all the pieces are still there.

    To say I am devastated is an under statement.

    My advice. Don't drop your phone off a bridge.

    In the case of a 74m drop, would a screen protector + hard case even have protected the phone? You can only be so careful, and FYI never trust YouTube - bunch of sub4sub, misleading thumbail/taggin ******s.

    Seems you still can reuse the back part of the case! Such a pitty, I hope you have budget to buy a new 920 again!

    Where are the pictures of the city block sized crater that used to be the street it landed on?

    I do think insurance on phones is a scam...yes...they are $600 pieces of technology when purchased new...but you should never plan to break one / plan for it to fall off a bridge.

    In BestBuy last week, over heard a guy repurchasing an iPhone 5 because his daughter broke her's...so he was teaching her a lesson by making her get a $50 Otterbox...*rolleyes*

    I do not carry insurance, and never will. If I break my Lumia or my wife breaks her iPhone 5, we will go out and buy the year older tech (~$200) until our next upgrade is available. It would be our loss for breaking it, so we have to deal with the older phone for a year.

    Insurance through AT&T runs nearly $10 a month and has a $100-$200 deductible (A $200 to $350 cost if broken at 1 year). Even BestBuy's plan was like $250.

    @AndrewKeith5 - Dude, I said lose or break. Never lost a toaster, but I've had a few break over the years. 😊

    Well, at least if you had to destroy it accidentally, you did it in a more unique way than the "Dropped my phone while putting it my pocket" thing... It still sucks, but you can, at least, say it went off a bridge! :)
