    Default Grammar check/question

    "This phone keeps on getting dropped."

    Is it correct? Or should I phrase it again?

    If you mean that someone continually drops that phone on the floor, then it's fine (if a little unlikely). If you mean that calls keep being disconnected then you would say "Calls keep dropping when I'm using this phone".
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
