Cool I Dropped My Stiletto From 2 Feet High...

I was listening to my stiletto via wi-fi and had it in my wasteband of my sweats cleaning the house. It slipped and fell to the floor about 2 feet down.

Well it pulled on the headphone jack and now....its loose and have to wiggle the damn thing...

SO BE CAREFULL!!!!


I will be taking this back to CC. Sirius is going to have a hard time with this, seeing as they wanted to get out cheap by not supplying a belt clip like they did with the S50.


Ill have to get the aftermarket one I guess...

Just a word of caution...be carefull. Wear a clip!!!!!

Gee this sounds familiar; someone drops their Stiletto and wants it covered under warranty:

Nothing personal, but why in the hell would anyone tuck an expensive and delicate high tech electonics in the waistband of their sweats? I feel bad for you but it sounds like this was bound to happen given the chances you were taking.

You can get a cable for (probably) under $20 from RadioShack or wherever that'll allow you to connect it to a stereo's input via the stiletto's headphone plug.

Place the stiletto on the table, and there you go.

Well there is no doubting it, since the Stiletto doesn't come with a case or clip, you'll have to buy one. I used an iPod case to put my Stiletto in from the first day I got it out of the box, because I was not taking any chances on it. I have indeed dropped it a few times, but with ZERO damage because of the protection. I now have the leather flip case and overylays on it. I can clip it or even wear it on a neck band if I want too depending on what I am doing.

If it were me, I wouldn't even swap it out until I got a case for it.

Wear a belt clip, don't place on the edge of the bath tub while taking a bath, don't stick in the oven, don't shove the Stiletto down your throat, etc. Darwinism at its finest.
IF GOD FORBID YOU CRASH YOUR CAR, WHY SHOULD YOUR INSURANCE PAY FOR IT? would you pay for it yourself?

Depends. If I was driving while blindfolded or with my knees or something else incredibly stupid why should the insurance company pay for it? Odds are I'd be ticketed and the insurance company would decline my request due to my negligence. Therefore I would pay for it. Unless I lied about the circumstances of the crash and would then commit insurance fraud.

However this is all moot since you're comparing apples to oranges.

We're talking about a WARRANTY not INSURANCE. There’s a huge difference.

It would be more accurate to ask; if I never changed my oil (even though my manual recommended it every 3,000 miles) and my engine seized up would the auto dealership cover me under their warranty. I'm guessing they would take one look at the sludge in my engine and say, Sorry, you’re fault, not ours.”

Smile you know DOUBLE...

Instead of being so harsh and critical about my circumstance with dropping my Stiletto, a "brother" in faith would instead be kind and say something like:


"I'm sorry to hear that you dropped your stiletto. Maybe you should think about getting a clip or a case for it. I find that would be the best thing. Oh perhaps (as dab stated) get the clip/case before you take it back".

That would've been more what a "person of excellence" would say instead of beating someone over the head and basically telling them they are stupid. Which is what you told me in so many words. Im guessing you live an angry life filled with rage and pain. Perhaps turn that around and be more friendly to your brothers in this world.

Oh and btw Im not perfect and Im willing to bet you're not either.

Take care and be good to yourself

I agree with yo ronnied. Some people just live mad 24/7. I bet if DoublEE droped his stiletto after paying 350 for it he would take it back too if he had the extanded warranty. He is just complaining because it seems that is what he does best. To many people hide behind keyboards and talk crap. I am sick of it for one but its something we will never be able to change.

It's obvious you know nothing about me. Check my posting history; I don't "complain" or talk "crap." Futhermore for you to say what I would do in a given situation and how I live is idiotic and not worth addressing any further.

Sorry my opinion differs from yours. This same topic came up a while ago and many others felt that it was dishonest to return something dropped through one's own negligence. If drops are covered under an extended warranty than this is moot point.

Even with a case it is going to drop and I've done that. Last week I took it out of my leather case to put it in the car dock. While trying to slide it in the dock it slipped out of my hands hit a diet coke can below it in the drink holder, bounced over and hit the center console and landed on the carpet below the soda of which some spilled on it. Nothing happened but I am more careful now putting it in the car dock.

Since none of the docks will work with cases, there is a lot of sliding the stiletto in and out of cases. This makes it more prone to dropping!

I dropped mine once while on a treadmill at the gym. It landed on the edge of the tread, knocking the battery off. Fearing the worst, I put the battery back on and restarted it. There was no damage and it even started playing back where it was when I dropped it (yay!).

Default THANK Goodness...

There are others that have dropped it too.

How many people returned their S50 that was dropped or the car dock (nob fell off), etc and RETURNED IT!

There is always one person in a bunch that feels they are perfect.
