I'm not a vain person so I carry phone on my belt most often, but not always.

Sure, I carry it in my pocket on occasion, but my LCD screen is also scratched up because of it.

I carry it where it's most convenient with the cloths I'm wearing at the time. On my belt, in my pants pocket, coat pocket , shirt pocket, or where ever it ends up.

The one thing that I don't do, is care about what other people think about where I carry it.

I also don't try to look 10 years younger than I am either. Also, no pocket protector, but I often carry a pen.
