A couple of years a go a buddy and I were grading an area to build a shed.  I was driving the tractor and we had been running back and forth to firm up what we had moved.  As I made a turn I looked down and thought that looks familiar.  It was! It was my phone.  I'm not sure how many times I ran it over but it still worked but some of the buttons didn't work quite as well and the screes was all scratched up.

 

I still have a flip phone, when out granddaughter upgraded to a smart phone I took her flip phone and I like it.  It flips two ways so I can use it as a flip phone one way but it opens length ways to use it to text.  When it dies I'm not sure what I'll do because you can't find flip phones much anymore.  I darn sure don't want to pay the data fee's.  Plus no one wants to steal a flip phone.

My last phone fell out of my pocket onto a haul road and was run over by a grader.

Seems the otter box held up well.

 

Mine looked a little worse than that, my glass peeled almost completely off.

Yeah I was really impressed with the Otterbox LOL too bad it didn't do what it was intended to do though. The screen is only half of it, the entire phone was bent, there was dents pushing out of the back of the phone from the gravel that broke the screen.
