    The phone was given to me as a gift, unfortunately with recent car problems I was never able to buy a case for it. Today while walking down the stairs I had my phone out talking to someone, and missed a step.

    My immediate bodily reaction was to drop my phone to grab the railing on my left (left handed). When I realized what was going on I immediately went to catch my phone and fall all at once.

    So I basically grabbed the rail and attempted to catch my phone. I failed and bobbled the phone causing it to fall from a higher height. (from a 8-9 foot fall to a 10-11 easy).

    The phone bounces twice off the concrete floor. My screen is intact. Camera still works. But the bottom corners are dented really bad. And one edge is chipped and black (hopefully I can at least get it white again). It feels horrible.

    So yea, grateful that I'm not at the hospital and I have a fully working phone, but disappointed that after owning it for two weeks I dropped it. My first smartphone drop ever too.

    While typing this, I also noticed my screen was popped out a little more than usual and I just pushed it in. It clicked in place. Ugh...

    You're lucky the lumia 920 is a solid and well built phone.

    Had that been a Sasmsung S3 or something, bye bye phone.

    Mora of the story: don't talk and walk the stairs at the same time. :)

    On a serious note, glad you're okay, and the phone survived, albeit a little banged up.

    I know that with the launch of the 900 AT&T carried silicon covers that were the same colors of the phone. I'd be interested in getting one for the 920 to use on the off occasion I'm out all day, but they don't seem to be carrying any? I think something as simple as that would have helped MacDaMachine.

    You can consider sanding down or rounding the corner to smooth it out again. The body is a uniform color through and through. I can't find the link in a quick search, but I remember someone did it to a L900 and it worked out really well.

    Try these from Amazon. I couldn't get yellow, but I like the color of the case more than the phone. $7! http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00A1Z...wpcentral00-20

    Got this one for my Lumia 920, and looks very nice and doesn't add much bulk to the device. It's the Incipio Feather. It also comes with a screen protector, but somehow, because the way the glass edges is semi-roundish, the edges don't stick very well. Not to say the screen protector is no good, but I have not found a screen protector that actually adhere well on the edges of the Lumia 920.

    i got my otterbox commuter in today and while it adds bulk, the level of mental comfort and reassurance i have is worth its money in gold. So much i dont have to worry about now. This phone will last my two year contract for sure now

    seriously, stop with these comments. Every phone is susceptible to drops and breaks no matter the height. guy dropped his from 3 ft and it was destroyed just a few posts down.

    Barrier chief has a product that doesn't cover the entire screen because of the curves and leaves a millimeter on all the sides. I just ordered it so I cannot say how well it performs. I just saw a youtube video and it looked good.

    My Zagg Dry hugs the curves rather nicely and has not lifted up at all.

    I just don't like Zagg's "rubbery" feel. I like those cheap ones that feels more like glass.

    Yup. Somehow that's the only brand of case they are selling. The store where I bought this one's anyway.

    I ordered this:
    Amazon.com: Nokia Lumia 920 (AT&T) Premium Combo Pack - Black TPU Flex Grip Gel Case + ATOM LED Keychain Light + Screen Protector + Wall Charger + Car Charger + Micro USB Cable: Cell Phones & Accessories

    Terrific deal. Comes with a car charger, home charger, micro-usb cable and an el-cheapo case that fits pretty snugly and looks like it should absorb impact pretty much anywhere except the front.

    Nokia Lumia 920 feather Ultra Thin Snap-On Case

    Looks like Incipio has finally posted the cases to their website. I have the matching Cyan case and I love it.

    My two year old dropped mine while he was on my shoulders. I'm over 6 ft so he was over 6 feet up, it hit concrete and the phone only has the slightest scratch on a ceramic button. Love this phone.
