While tonyhamre makes a very technologically valid point, the rest of us are making a MacGyver valid point. All of us are experiencing this problem with out 6's. Its too %#*@ thin, and the bottom case is not made of the type of metal, or thickness, to make the phone structurally sound. I'm sure that there are 1000s of people who will never see this thread, and hand their beautiful iPhone 6's down to their younger siblings or children as a very nice iPod Touch. And then there are some of us who can't afford to needlessly replace a now $300 (+/-) phone, and refuse to give up as easily. I tried all of the Apple tips, Youtube How To's, and stumbled across this thread. I did the drop, minus the "Geronimo", and I'll be darned, It worked. I agree with tonyhamre, this really isn't a smart method, but then again, buying an Apple product post Jobbs passing isn't the smart either. I raise a glass to you tonyhamre, with my phone in the other hand just as high.
