This weekend I was pulling my cell phone out of my pocket and then it slipped out of my hand. As I saw it making its way to the concrete parking lot all I could do was pray that it didn’t land face down. However it did. It landed in the kiss of death position for cell phones.

Not only did the glass shatter, but for a period of time even the home button stopped working, and the only thing that I could do was text because my phone froze on the text screen.
