    Alright, I've kept my iphone in my back pocket since the 3gs. It's had a nice home there with no problems. Now since I've picked up the 5 earlier this year it has been burning holes in my back pocket. I guess my jeans weren't meant to withstand right angle aluminum and glass. Is there any way to resolve this? I was thinking of getting some iron on patches and iron them from the inside of the pocket to reinforce it. Or getting a *shutter* case. I've rocked a naked iphone for a while now and I can't see myself going that route.

    Anyone else come across this annoyance?

    Quit putting it in your back pocket. The angles are definitely different with the 5. Lot sharper than 3GS. I have been that route. I never keep my 5 in my pocket, especially if I am going to sit. I usually remove it and put in my hand or on something. It is either that or get a soft case with less angled edges.

    I thought only girls put their phones in their back pocket.

    Why not use your front pocket? Safer for your phone, it won't bend.

    Cargo jeans. :D

    Seriously, that's mostly what I wear and my iPhone 5 goes right in a side pocket. I take it out before I bend down or sit down though.

    Get a 4s with a Pixelskin HD and sit on it 'til your heart's delight.

    The 5/5s will bend when you sit on it.

    Well, I've been accused of being stuck in the past. In '95 I was still wearing acid-wash jeans so, there you go! :rolleyes:

    Serious? I keep my phone in my back left. No bends, breaks or the like. No worn out denim either though...

    You should not use your back pocket to keep the cell phone.

    naw man. mucho junk in this trunk.

    on a totally serious note, I'm kind of intrigued. I've only ever kept it in my back left, and have never experienced a "denim blowout." I even wear target brand jeans, so it makes me wonder what could differ between the OP and myself. maybe his job is more sit, then stand?

    Also; I was totally unaware of a male/female way of carrying your mobile device. That kind of mentality is gross to me. Just saying.

    Ya, can be many factors: Flat azz, low pockets, baggy jeans, tight jeans, the way a person wears their jeans like the jeans hanging from their waistline, etc. :apple:

    A bumper case would help

    Or you could file Down the sharp edges
