    Just curious how everyone carries their mobile phone. I normally carry mine in a holster via OtterBox or a Supcase. I've recently switched to a UAG Monarch and I am putting it in my back pocket. So throw up your phones so I can see!

    I wear 5.11 Ridgeline pants, I use the two front phone pockets for my phones (work and personal). Wish more companies offered those pockets on pants, everything I can find only has one pocket or is over $200 a pair

    Depends, in the semi it's always in a cradle, when I get it out, it goes in my shirt pocket. Normal use, it's either in my back pocket or the inside pocket of whatever jacket I'm wearing.

    I have an older ... and 'old school' flip phone made by LG. When closed it is very compact. In the car it generally rides in the 'pocket' of the driver's door armrest unless I am charging while I drive - in which case it rides in a cup holder. When I'm carrying it on person usually it is in a jacket or shirt pocket if I have such; else it is in a pocket in my jeans. Around the house it is usually in a pocket of my sweats - my usual home uniform!

    L'chaim!

    Nite ize phone case. I've done busted too many of the expensive things being in a pocket so I'll just be a dork with it on my belt.

    So today was my first day in two weeks at work, so I just couldn't do the pocket carry any more had to go back to the belt clip. Rocking the pelican Voyager today. I'm so broke right now it's not even funny, but I want a new phone some kinda bad.[​IMG]

    No case and no screen protector for me. I've always bought Nexus or Google Pixel phones. Never had a cracked screen, never lost my phone, they've always just worked.

    Anyone use an under the arm style gun holster to carry a large mobile phone?

    In the Winter months a jacket or fleece pocket is my preferred choice, now it's getting T shirt weather I find phone carry a problem, don't have any space on my belt for a pouch.

    I have a leather case for my phone. Then it is just carried in pocket.

    Never seen a phone holster like that! Sounds interesting... albeit in summer months I'd be concerned about sweat impacting the phone! ;)

    I have a sup case, but rarely use the holster. Galaxy S9, just rides in my front pocket.

    I just see that as a somebody sees it, thinks it a gun, and the cops detain you wasting both of ya'lls time.

    i'm so tired of carrying my iPhone in my pocket
    went on a search for a phone case i can wear on a belt. but, i don't always use a belt

    i found the Ranger, from Waterfield made is San Francisco

    kinda perfect its straps on my belt and the strap uses a magnet to secure the case. if I don't have a belt
    i slip the magnetic strap in my waist band so cool

    has a pocket or cords too

    I funded one on kickstarter and have never used it - only taken out of the box to check it out. Now it just collects dust. Check it out here and let me know if you want me to send it to you - you can have it...

    Many thanks for the kind offer but I'm in the UK so postage etc would cost you a fortune no doubt.

    It's probably not a great idea/carry solution after all, being mistook for carrying a gun/weapon did spring to my mind too, there are a lot of 'sensitive' folk in the UK.

    I generally wear cargo pants just so I have a place to put my work and personal phones without having to wear 2 phone cases on my belt. That's entering too close to Batman territory with the other stuff already on there. Maybe try a neck lanyard solution. There are a lot of options that come up with a quick Google search.

    Exactly - being in the US in a state which frowns upon gun control the last thing I need is to be mistaken for having a concealed firearm, searched and then punished for having a folding knife on me (also frowned upon in the state I live). Hence - never used it.

    Went back to back pocket carry for the S8+. I am gonna have to buy a belt holster and pop it there. Not many cases have belt clips built in so this way I can buy whatever case I want and Batman it.
