iPhone 4 Falls 1,000 Feet And Lives

An iPhone 4 fell from of the pocket of a U.S. Air Force Jump Master when he was looking out the plane and plummeted 1,000 feet to the ground, and was completely unharmed, reports iLounge.

After landing, the Jump Master told the story to a friend who downloaded the Find My iPhone app onto his device and got a signal that the guy’s phone was 2 miles away in the woods. They hopped on some ATVs and tracked it down. The phone, which had an aftermarket metal backing and was inside a Griffin Motif TPU case, suffered neither scratches nor screen damage. Powering it on, they were pleasantly surprised to find the iPhone was fully operational.

Now just try recreating that drop test in a controlled setting…
