    I use it too often at work. Perhaps I should carry 2 knives.

    And feed-lot nerds, and trucker nerds, lawyer nerds, etc. We use our phones much more frequently than our treasured "fighting" knifes. I carry my phone on one side, my knife on the other, and a small utility knife in the pocket [plus keys, coins, copenhagen, etc.]

    Just another Nerd!

    Hey, I resemble that remark.

    When you wear slacks and are forced to use a thicker, company phone, you don't have a choice other then belt carry.

    I can draw much faster with the cell phone on my belt. Also, the antenna snags if I carry it in my pocket. If I pocket carry it produces a bulge and it can get scratched by my keys. Sometimes if I just have it in my pocket it will dial numbers by itself, and we all know how dangerous an ND/AD(negligent dial/accidental dial) can be.

    I realize that some of you want to conceal carry your cell phone, but I see no reason for you to call people names who choose to open carry. If it's legal in our state to open carry our cell phone, I say we should not let something like where we choose to carry divide us. As always a quality belt and a good holster will keep a cell phone from sagging or causing the dreaded AD(Accidental Dial).
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    I carry my phone on my belt. Yea, i agree it looks retarded, and many of chicks have probally turned and run from it (or the beard), but I like it, and thats the bottom line.

    I have to wear the phone all the time - jacket or not. Now, excuse me while I apply a healthy dose of Vitalis to my hair and adjust the calculator that I carry on the other side. And yes, you're counting six Bic pens in my breast pocket. Gotta go. Time to pick my nose.

    I like carrying that big ol' blackberry on my belt. I slide it right up next to the clips of my IWB and the phone provides cover for my gun. With the blackberry there, even people who look won't get suspicious of a bulge in your shirt right next to where your phone is sitting.

    Belts are for guns, pockets are for cell phones.
    Well, I carry mine at 4 Oclock when I'm not carrying my Glock there. Use to the weight, and having somthing hanging there. Don't care what it looks like. Not into that kind of thing.

    I'm callin' you guys out on the cell phones on belts are for nerds and wusses crap.

    You guys must not get out and bust your ass too much in the heat if you can keep a cellphone in your pocket. Us outdoor types that work in the heat know how long cellphones in the pockets last when you start sweatin'!

    Have fun when you stick that brick of crotch sweat and pocket lint up against your face.

    (just having a little fun no one get all flamed up or anything...)

    I live in an open carry (cellphone) state as well, in the pocket without any external protector scratches the phones up significantly. Put a protector on it and then it is too bulky and too slow to answer. My front pockets hold change and keys. Back pocket holds wallet. I don't think the cell phone would last long in a back pocket.

    Am I a nerd for also carrying my leatherman tool in a cordura holster on my belt?

    My cell stays in my car because it does'nt work inside my office and I don't use it at home. If I go inside a store or get out of my car to a restaurant, etc, it clips on my belt.

    As for the original post question, there are probably at least hundred different configurations, makes and models of cellphone holders. I made my own because I got tired of the cheap plastic clips breaking and put a larger steel clip on a cordura pouch similar to the one from wrbsales Cell Phone Pouches
    Yoda, I am, yes.

    I just stick it in my shirt pocket and forget about it. Works as good as a shoulder holster.

    Y'all got it wrong. Just carry the phone Sonny Burnett style:

    If you really want to show who's tacticool, you can even get a sort of cell phone drop holster from them. ThinkGeek :: Gadget Hip Holster :: Additional Images

    I'll spare you images of it.
