Cellphone stops a bullet!

Looks like a small caliber bullet was used, probably a .22, anyway talk about a 1 in a million shot.  

Yeah, had it been anything bigger then it probably would have gone clean thru. Seems like someone was having a pretty lucky day (other than being held up and shot at).

This is the second time that I've heard of an HTC device stopping a bullet. The first time was the original EVO 4G.

 

I bet you your little Galaxy couldn't do that...

wouldnt the galaxy's cover more area and still have the similar protection. It the phone was on of the iphones made with a glass back the bullet would of actually gone through with some glass :P

The galaxy line cheap plastic can't stop squat lol. The battery is what stopped the bullet with the original evo and this time with the evo 3d also.

If it is the battery that stops it then the "cheap plastic" wouldnt have an effect of it. It would be up to the battery of the phone. And gotta remember the galaxy captivate wasnt using cheap plastic, and that phone I couldnt break even when I tried to break it by throwing it on the ground.

I'm trying to think of where the Phone was when he got shot.  In his shirt pocket?

"Winter Garden Police said in an email that a clerk had just minor injuries after a robber fired a bullet at his abdomen. Police say his cellphone stopped it" http://news.msn.com/crime-justice/fla-police-cellphone-stops-bullet-fired-by-robber

 

Sounds like abdominal area.  Pry had a jacket or a hoodie, or something similar with front pockets.

    • T-Mobile Will Soon Prevent Early Payoff Of Phones Receiving Bill Credits If you finance a phone with T-Mobile it will remain locked until paid off but now you won't be able to pay off early. If you don't currently purchase your phones from the manufacturer here is another reason it might be a good idea.
    • Was in Red Hook again and I swear there are more Link5G sites as there are Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T small cells combined in the entire neighborhood. It seemed like every other street I turned down had one installed. Hopefully carriers will start hopping on them soon. Seems like a lot of effort to go through for no one to use them.  — — — — — T-Mobile converted the Sprint site on top of NYU Langone Brooklyn in Sunset Park. I first mapped one sector of it back in November 2023 but I thought it was a small cell so I never pinned it but I ran into another sector today which caught me off guard. I'm unable to find a permit for the conversion so it's definitely a surprise. There's another T-Mobile site 1 block away that T-Mobile initially installed back in 2019 so I'm kinda surprised they're keeping both considering the Sprint conversion is on a much taller building and could potentially provide much better coverage to the entire area.  — — — — —  Old permit for this new install expired but a new one was recently issued. It's gonna be similar to the site at 360 Forman St in Brooklyn Heights. Permit calls for only 3 antennas to be installed so I'm assuming it gonna be Band 2/41/66 and n25/41 only which is a bit of a downgrade from the now decommissioned full build that was on 871 7th Ave but in it's current state the nearest macro is a few blocks away and a small cell at Broadway and 55th is doing a lot of heavy lifting in the area so anything helps.  
    • Still not seeing any ULS postings for pending T-Mobile UScellular merger in Dane county Wisconsin.
    • Came across another Crown Castle Solutions multi-tenant oDAS node in Brooklyn. Located at 40.7002286, -73.9612666. Nothing on T-Mobile or AT&T so I'm assuming these are all Verizon nodes that Crown Castle is anticipating another carrier will hop on down the line.
    • Same with factory unlocked
