Besides wearing your cell phone on your head, you must have seen it, has anyone found a gadget or accessory that would prevent your phone from crashing to the ground?

That's great. I wonder if it will actually work. I guess we'll all have to rely on shock absorbing cases until then.

What handphone you use. I suggest for you to look beautiful and safety. I use iPhone 5 equipped with casing and got shield for safety. The shield is to protect the phone if fell on floor.
