EPIC POLL: Do you wear a cell phone holder on your belt?

Do you wear a backpack on airplanes? If so, you are ghey!
You are also a great candidate for this poll!

This poll is dedicated to meltblown

No!

I oft carry mine in the ruler pocket of my pantaloons, though.
I always wear a belt, unlike the *model* in the photo below.



You know...a ruler and kinda shaped like a phone?

Used to have it on the belt but they have gotten so large that it doesn't really work there anymore.

I carry it in a leather fold over case like a check book in the back pocket not occupied by my wallet.

If at any time you see a cell phone holder or a cat, dog, tree, car, or whatever and the first thing that pops into your head is two guys butt fuking. The cell phone holder or the cat or the dog or the tree probably isn't the issue

just sayin'

I still run a iPhone 5C (yeah, one of those old things)

keep it in a Otterbox protector on a clip-holster

clips about anywhere, to a shirt pocket, neck of T-shirt, pants pocket ect,

Otterbox has kept it pristine and scratch free, on the second Otterbox now

has taken some serious falls/hits w/o damage to iphone inside

I have replaced the battery myself once already, soon a second battery will need to be changed out

cannot justify the cost for a new phone and refuse to buy any of the junk android os phones just not worth my time or money

No. Flip phone in front pant pocket or t-shirt pocket. Mostly just sits on the kitchen counter gathering dust.~ss

I keep my mobile phone in my front shirt pocket until I get to my desk and then put it on my desktop.

No holder, carrier or anything else...

Then again, my phone is not an integral part of my job and I have been known to leave it in the car or at home.

Being On 24/7/365 call until I get a different job I am married to a phone

About 14 years ago I was screaming a hi track 5 down the right of way with all it had , the cel phone on a belt clip hit the Parking break rocker switch and whoa camel to a sudden abrupt slamming stop.

I got catapulted face first into the exhaust pipe , the way that dozer banged I thought I busted the final drive

Two smashed phones later I wisenhiemered up and keep that stupid phone in my shirt pocket or in the truck where it really belongs

I am retired so I seldom carry my flip phone, haven't used it five times in a month. It mostly stays on the dresser charged and ready if I go out of town. Then I put it in a shirt pocket. I hate phones, they are the big killer on construction jobs now and nobody should have one around moving equipment.

I said ghey. Don’t misquote me. make it a trifecta and throw in those water bottles with the big straw. Your poll is flawed. You ask if people would wear a cell phone holder but there is not a negative vote for that option alone

Why don't we combine some threads for one-stop reading?

Is it Ghey to Unholster Your Cell Phone to Take Selfies While Wearing a Larry Potterfield Backpack and Shooting a Bullpup?

I can see the innuendo in the plumbing aspect

Edited to add, after all, this is my rifle and this is my gun, one is for shooting and one is for fun. Politely put a gun plumber must be one who works on guns.

Keep it in my back pocket, in my truck on the charger or the nearest convenient place I left it and have to search for it. Usually the latter.

Those that wear their phones on their belt do not live a very active life style. Active as in ACTIVE.

Shit these are the same dudes that use those glasses cases on their belts too. I guess a pocket protector thread may need launching.

I carry my Pixel 2 XL in this. If protecting a very expensive phone is ghey, tough chit. While it fits in my jeans back pocket, it is too large to sit down with in your pocket.

iPhone 6 conceals completely in right-side slash Carpenter pocket.

Been wearing only this brand for years now.


https://www.allamericanclothing.com/...usa/AA202.html

Carpenter pockets even hold FAL mags.

Watch pocket is huge. Smith & Wesson, Ruger, and Kel-Tec .380 pistols conceal completely in watch pocket.

For light to medium duty work. Fabric is not overly-thick or rigid when new.
If you spend a lot of time crawling around on the ground, they will wear out fast.

Deep crotch. If you want people to check ou your junk, and your ass-crack, you will be disappointed.
