One of the toughest phones that I have ever held

I won't lie, I am tough on phones. Between my job, tendency to drop the phone and being I life in Florida and exposed to head, wind, sand, salt water and exposed to Florida's famous unexpected rain storms. I have a bit of a temper when I am pushed too far. Was working outside and I had a awning fall on me and whack me good on the head. Well I end up chucking the phone against a concrete patio. It bounced and landed elsewhere. After my head stopped throbbing I looked for the phone. I expected the screen to be cracked or something else bad with it. Nope, NOTHING broke, the back popped off and it got 2 scuffs on the rubber. Other then the minor cosmetic damage everything worked beautiful.

Moral of the story. The Motorola i680 is the toughes...

Hard to believe. There is a right side hinge issue that I am finding to be more and more common with these i680 phones. The Motorola holster is inferior, and allows the phone to fall out. Mine broke the right side hinge from simply falling out of its holster a few times. I also live in Florida, but this phone is a fragile piece of junk, and I can not believe that it is touted as meeting military specs for being rugged.
My warranty runs out March 2011, but Motorola refuses to honor it, and will charge me $105.93 to fix the phone.

Thanks Motorola.
