    So, my girlfriend is worried sick about dropping or forgetting her iPhone 5 somewhere (we've got two young kids, the parents out there know how it can be). We're looking for a case that either has some kind of lanyard so that the iPhone can hang around the neck, or a case with a small hole where you can tie something to it (like the phones used to have back in the day).

    I don't know if I'm just absolutely useless when it comes to using Google, because the only option I can find is iHangy - but they don't sell them in Europe...

    Do any of you know of a case that would work for her?

    Haha, I saw that first one but I mean - it must be a scam, right? They've taken stock photos and superimposed iPhones, really badly I must add ;)

    The SwitchEasy does look interesting, but the main idea was to be able to hang it around the neck, and I just don't get the feeling that it's secure enough and I'd prefer being able to hang it at least from a corner of the phone.

    Actually, that's a real product (albeit somewhat sketchy), and other than the waterproof Dri Cat Neck It!, that's about it.

    Search ebay for "Netsuke iPhone 5". Best looking solution in my opinion.

    Pretty sure that the zero chroma stand cases all have holes for lanyards

    Thanks a lot for all the suggestions, I personally found the Netsuke to be ridiculously awesome and will probably get it for myself :) But we found another one that she felt fit her needs better: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vv7we-ifD0c

    It's odd though that it doesn't seem to be a bigger demand for cases with straps, isn't it? I mean, there are so many option when it comes to belt clips...

    Thanks again!

    The SwitchEasy Lanyard has only one problem: The sleep/wake button does not work properly for me. I press it and it does not touch the button.
