    Wearing gloves for the cold weather doesn't do any good for my iPhone. Constantly have to take off my gloves and put them back on. Well, I got fed up with it, so I used my nose. Works great! I just look ridiculously stupid. Now I didn't get around to it, but if i wanted to scroll I could use my tongue. :p Problem is that it would have slobber all over it, but that's not new cuz everyone else seems too. :D

    Yes, quite a few people have recently reported using their nose to answer their phone in the cold.

    This technique was predicted almost a year ago... not long after the phone was announced to use a capacitive touchscreen.

    It's also possibly one reason the phone was rushed to market in the summertime ;-)

    all I have to say is I am glad I live in Vegas so I never have to make these important decisions.

    I have a pair of Marmot gloves (without the special ipod fingers) and this style glove is awesome for a quick run to the car in the morning or to make a snow ball. I wouldn't want to wear mine all day as they are not that thick.

    As for the The North Face gloves, they do work, I didn't belive it until I tried it. I had my iPhone on me to test. They wanted $50CAD for them. So that is even more in US dollars. HA I've waited a long time to say that:p

    licking works, just tried it, but my phone didnt taste too good!


    actually the exchange rate is 1 USD= 1.0076CAD, soooooooo, technically they'd be more expensive there versus here if the currency rate is the only determinant.;)

    My 14 year old niece used her tongue to answer the phone once when I called her and her hands were full. It made me laugh at the time because I had never heard of anyone answering their phone in that way and it would be just like her to do something quirky like that. Now I see that this forum is full of people who are just as off the wall as she is! :)

    It's very tempting, but don't any of you use the factory headphones? You can use the clicker to answer a call.

    I wear a pair of black nomex flight gloves when I'm out with my iphone. Though on the mountain a few weeks back, wearing my heavy gloves, it as much more difficult. I had to take them off, but for daily wear, the nomex gloves work fine. You have to add a little bit of pressure, but the phone is very responsive.

    You live in Las Vegas and you say it gets cold there? Last time I was there in the wintertime (Jan. or Feb., I don't remember) it was 70 degrees. That's not very cold.

    EDIT: Wow, I just looked on weather.com and it's 48 degrees there right now. The new ice age is coming!

    ya but 48 degrees is hardly glove weather. I have lived here for 15 years and have never needed a pair of gloves. Except when going up to Mt charleston in the winter. 20 degrees up there and thats cold.
