For those of you with an iPhone...

Thought I had found a great storage place for my iPhone - it fits pretty snugly and you can see incoming calls...



Unfortunately, I decided to make a right-hand turn and the phone didn't - BAM, face plant on the pavement!



Learn form me - I'm an idiot.

Sorry dude but thats some funny S*&%

I'm a more proactive person.
You spray the ants before they get in your house.
You plant the crops before you starve.
And you keep the terrorists in check before you get your *** blowed off.

That's funny right there.

I bet you took the first pic thinking "This is awesome I'll post this up on Jeepforum" and then smash!

Sucks. If you have the insurance through your carrier they will replace it. Also I think you can have the screen replaced for a hundred online and $120 in an Apple store.

This first pic is a buddy's iPhone - taken after the tragedy for reference.

And heck with fixing it, that's cash I could use on the YJ!!! haha

Besides, the phone now has "character".

I just picked up an Ipod classic and am looking for a decent place to put it. I used to throw my old one into the center console when I was plugged into my headunit but my new locking ammo can center console doesnt really afford me that opportunity. I think I might just end up getting one of those cell phone holders that mounts to the dash or something.
