    I've had my Plus for a week now, and am loving every aspect of it. (Came from a 5.) My only issue with it is how to carry it with me, especially when I'm not wearing a jacket (where I could slip it in an inside pocket). With my 5, I had it in a generic black leather case on my belt, which worked great. I looked in vain for a similar case for the Plus but couldn't find anything large enough, at least in a few local stores. I ended up ordering one online, and it should come next week. I'm worried, though, that it might be a bit weird/awkward to have such a large thing hanging from my belt, but for me there is no other way, short of just putting in my shirt pocket (when my shirt has a pocket) or just holding it in my hand all the time. (Pants pocket is not an option.)

    What do you guys do?

    Pants pocket has been fine, if I have a jacket or a blazer on I've been putting it in the breast pocket.

    Personally not a huge fan of belt clips in general, would be afraid of knocking the phone into next week with one swing of the arm. 6+ is a bigger target in this regard.

    Bought a case with a holster. Verified that I can use my other cases with it, so I wouldn't be bound to just the case that came with it.

    i bought an apple leather case for it, as well as a belt holster that the phone fits inside with the case....

    if i'm going out with a jacket it usually sits in the inside pocket...

    as far as wearing it clipped to my belt, i thought it would look obnoxious.... but it's not THAT big. now if i had an iPad mini attached to my side, then it would be obnoxious

    In my pocket. Just like every other phone Ive ever owned in my life.

    My wife used to carry her iPhone 5 in her pocket but now carries hers in her purse so now she misses a lot of texts from me. Its annoying but I dont want to say anything because I think shes doing it so I can buy her an AppleWatch.

    When I'm wearing shorts or slacks in goes right into the front pocket. Now when I'm wearing jeans I usually put it in my blazer/jacket pockets or just carry it in hand. Kind of annoying sometimes but I knew what I was getting myself into. Lol.

    I put it in my (gasp!!) back pocket when I'm not wearing a jacket.

    Either in my coat pocket or in my bag. I never carry my phone in a trouser pocket anymore, except for really, really short periods of time. Such as carrying it downstairs before I leave the house.

    The same as every other phone I've ever owned.

    If I'm wearing a jacket it will be in one of the jacket pockets.

    If I'm not wearing a jacket it will be in the front left pocket of my jeans/trousers.

    If I'm cycling it will be either in a backpack or a belt bag.

    Lol. Hope you got some 3 inch wide Kinedyne ratchet straps to hold her down.

    I also keep mine in my pants pocket if I don't have a sweatshirt or jacket. Have had no issues.

    This, pants pocket, alone with nothing in it, or shorts pockets, etc, i always have my phone alone with nothing else in the pocket at all, when I drive, I push the phone away torwards from the outter part of my leg and torwards inward and it takes pressure off the device and also more comfortable aswell lol
