    I keep my phone in right front pocket.

    I have always been confused about where to put my phone - in the front or back pockets. Keeping phones in front pockets could affect fertility in men.o_O There's actually scientific evidence behind this claim.:eek: But putting phone in the back pockets is extremely prone to theft.

    It always comes down to infertility or losing my beloved phone. :D

    I haven't decided just yet how or where that i'm going to be carrying my new Huwaei Ascend 2 Mate Phablet since it sports an extra large 6.1 screen. I found on Amazon so far a total of maybe 1 or 2 cases that belt loop. Don't think I wanna try any sort of hip clip. Will have to experiement with it some.

    1. I do not want to sit on my phone so back pockets are not an option.
    2. I am a right-hander.
    3. I don't use holsters. Do not suit my fashion sense.
    4. I'm a guy so no purse or handbag.

    That leaves me with only my right front pocket.

    I usually don't carry it with me, but I usually keep it in my right back pocket. In car & airplane I throw it in the first empty compartment in front of me.

    I'm the entire opposite. My phone either stays in my pockets or it is in my hand. I don't like to leave it around unless it is within my house. For e.g, some people place their phones on the table when eating out or they place it on the seat during a cab ride. I try not to do that. I have never lost my phone this way.

    Left front pocket but I see many people holding it in their hand and never putting it away.

    Right front pocket. However I tend to hold the phone in my hands for quite long time and put in airplane mode when not in use. Seems there are a lot discussions on web right now about the health issues but it seems wifi and bluetooth are the silent killers too.

    These days I usually put it in my right front pocket of my trousers. When mobile phones still had those hanger slots I put them in my shirt pocket and used a strap to wear it around my neck which would prevent it from being stolen by pickpockets.

    Holy crap I missed my W810i!

    If it wasn't because of that stupid custom pop-ports I would have been still using it until now.

    Actually, sometimes I still put it in my shirt pocket when connected to the headset.

    Why do mobile phones now don't have those hanger slots anymore anyway? I love those straps.

    I like to be light, no watch, rings, chains, nothing and that includes cell phones. I only bring the phone with me when I am working. If I am carrying the phone, I put it in my shirt pocket. If I go out at night or in the afternoon of a day off, I leave the phone in the car.

    In a holster on a belt, easy accessible and always with me. When I bought my first phone I put it into a pocket in jeans and in a week it broke, when falling off it.

    Front left pocket in a Life Proof Nuud case (iphone 5s). I am right handed and would prefer they would be in my right pocket, but a Kel Tec P32 lives in that pocket.

    Right back pocket, I take it out when sitting. There are times when I put in my right front pocket. I leave it in the car when I go to church. I never leave it alone except at home, my office or in the car.

    In my hands normally, using my opposing thumbs to great effect.
    Sometimes in a variety of pockets, or my fashionable MANPURSE!!!!

    I dislike smartphones and phones in general, but they are devices that I have to use because of important messages in real time. I also must admit they are sometimes absolutely necessary in emergencies… If I have my notebook bag, I usually put it in the side pocket otherwise in my right hand pocket. A doctor once told me not to carry it anywhere near my heart, as a precaution…

    That thing is obnoxiously large.. I can't wait for the whole phablet crap to die off, and we can get some normalcy back.

    I don't think it is ever going to die considering how popular phablets have become. There are still hundreds of models of smartphones with smaller screens for those who don't want giant sized phones.
