    Do you let people hold your iPhone 4, or do you just show it to them as you hold it? Why or why not?

    its just a phone.

    I had to wipe a booger off mine before using it this morning because my 3 year old was playing angry birds last night.

    repeat after me. Its just a phone.

    Excellent thread. I am very protective of my new baby and much prefer to show than let someone else handle it yet. The few times I have let someone hold it, I was more stressed than I expected.

    If this is an issue then you should buy either a case or a sense of perspective ;)

    I'll let my friends or family hold it, but random strangers that just want to see it, no.

    Of course I do, it's a friggin phone. Tech came in yesterday and asked if he could use my phone to troubleshoot a clients problems connecting to Exchange. Gave it to him without thinking twice.

    I'd let someone hold mine... if it had a case, if not, then only family or friends... now I just need an iPhone 4.

    Of course. If I get asked by strangers who notice me using it, I use the same amount of caution I would use with any expensive device. With family and coworkers, I give it up without a second thought.

    I think anyone who calls their phone their "baby" and will not let anyone else touch it probably has a case of aspergers.

    Met a guy last night who had an iPhone4. After reading about all the dropped and smashed iPhones, there was no way I was going to ask him to let me hold it. (He has the reception issue and was able to show it in action.)

    In regards to the thread title, I let more people hold my baby than I let hold my iPhone. My son is much more durable and breakage-resistant. :)

    It’s just a phone and not even that expensive any more.

    Yea, I hope they don't drop it but everyone should be able to enjoy it so I want them to see it

    If I ever refer to my phone as my "baby", I hope someone will punch me in the mouth for being so ridiculous.
