Sometimes I am working outside while wearing the phone, so I wear a man's long-sleeved shirt with a pocket. I still have it on its 'leash', but I drop it on the pocket and button it.

Sue, not to be vulgar or crude, but how well does that work for guys? We don't all have the same "lateral support" that women do. (ok, some guys do)

I only ask b/c I've had several times where my flip phone fell off my shorts while running.

second on the Maxpedition cell phone pouch...mine was a gift, and had the belt clip... replaced the clip with an Uncle Mikes nylon key ring holder for LEO duty belt, gives an additional attachment point for a flashlight if needed

My little flip-phone, a cheap disposable model, lacks a lanyard hole but I've found that if pressed I can string a bit of very thin, fifteen pound, spectra around the hinge connecting the two halves and string a lanyard that I can wear around my neck.

I use a Berghaus Tool case (shown on the Left clipped to the chest strap) to hold a candy bar style mobile phone.

I'm looking for a case for a Motorola droid that can go on a backpack like that.

Here's a solution that I am using:

You may find that if your flip phone has a hole for a thin nylon cord, you may be able to loop a small Victorinox replacement split ring through it and attach a para cord lanyard. The large Vic split rings are too big, at least for my phone. I tuck the red wooden ball up between my pants and belt, and the phone dangles. If I get a call, a quick tug loosens it. I can hang the phone in a pocket if I'm in the woods. It does not fall out.

My initial thought was to drill a hole yourself and add a nice paracord lanyard, but the phone probably wouldn't work after that!

Perhaps someone clever could develop an iPhone app ?

Might not do the warranty and insurance much good either.

I'm a little vague on what you're asking. It's just a string around your neck with the phone folded over it. I know quite a few women with 'considerable' cleavage (aka 'lateral support') who keep a lot of stuff tucked in there: cell phones, sunglasses, hankies, prescription, lighter, pack of cigarettes, etc.***

Running is kind of a pain (sometimes literally) when it's bouncing. The 'lateral support' doesn't change anything.

The most inconvenient time is when you're doing a lot of bending over or leaning forward, as then it's always in the way. That's when I stick it in my pocket. I said it was simple and cheap, not perfect frown .

***Which brings up the thought of a thread based on 'Cleavage Kits', but it's probably beyond the scope of this board, and besides, all the guys would want to see the photos. All I can say to the ladies who have enough room in this 'kit' for storage, beware of leaning over those auto-flush toilets.
