I've seen it happen a million times in movies. Fed up with work/love/undead sorcerers, our main character hurls his/her phone into a river/volcano/garbage bin. But do people really do this in real life? Have you?
The one time I threw a piece of tech in a fit of madness, it wasn't a phone and I didn't actually intend to destroy anything. But when I hurled that goddamn Netgear USB wireless router that NEVER WORKED across the room, I accidentally broke the glass in the door to my dining room. I was as surprised as you are! Who knew that stupid device could actually accomplish anything, let alone break glass?
So anyway, tell your friends here at Giz — have you ever tossed your phone away because of its crimes against you or humanity? What happened?
