    What does everyone use when going for a jog? I can't put my iPhone in baggy/loose shorts or it just flys around and will probably fall out. I don't like the idea of an arm band either. Any other options that aren't a fanny pack:D?

    Any recommendations?

    These look ok, just a little like the funny pack I didn't want to go with. But it's going to be something like it I guess.

    Thanks

    That would be the same problem in my pocket. How do you carry it?

    i usually use an ipod nano paired with bluetooth headphones. i'll sometimes use the iphone (or even my android phone) when the nano is low on battery or needs to be synced. either way, it goes in the pocket. the bluetooth helps a lot.

    edit: maybe you could get less baggy running shorts with pockets?

    For music, that is what I would do. I need to have my phone. I'm thinking the spibelt might be what I have to do. I think it's. better option than armband.

    Typically, I read threads on similar topics before starting a new thread.

    Good for you.:confused:

    Thanks or the post about armbands when I said NOT an armband. Maybe since you read threads on similar topics before starting a new thread, you should read a post before you make a new comment on it.

    Your post reveals you didn't read the other thread, it's about more than just armbands. How's it feel sitting on your own petard? Enjoying it?

    Oh, it's bad enough all these $&!@'s that tell you to search before posting, but now we have to read every other thread in its entirety, even when the subject is the opposite of what you are asking for.:rolleyes:.

    Don't mind this person, she/he likes to belittle people in the forums.

    The truth is belittling only to those who are scared of it.

    Along with people who think their question is so important it deserves its own thread then get insulting when they are called on it.

    iPod Shuffle, it has a clip.

    I wouldn't go jogging with an iPhone; I also dislike those armbands because it feels like I'm getting my blood pressure taken with one on.

    If you're serious about jogging then maybe try a shuffle or nano. I used my iPod Nano 3rd gen while jogging for years until it died. The great thing about the shuffle or nano is, they're built like tanks, so even if you drop it, it's no sweat.

    Oh. I was thinking iPod touch or something. The problem is I need my phone, and I like having the camera with anyway. If it was just or music I'd get a shuffle or something for sure. Thanks

    I keep it strapped to my incredibly large and veiny triceps. Thankfully I have AppleCare+ for those instances when my large muscles make the screen of the phone flex, bro.

    In a case, just carrying it my hand. Easy to read and use that way.

    I've started using a Phubby. It's basically a wrist pouch.

    Kind of weird at first and takes some getting used to but I like it much better than an arm band (hate). It's nice if you use one of the GPS apps that track your path because you can see through the material pretty well.

    I use phone case clip. Search on Amazon "iphone 5 case clip". I clip it to my pocket or any place.
