    is it just me or does the iPhone 6 just keep falling out of your shorts when your at the gym? if anyone has a 6+ let me know about your experience if that has happened to you or not? cause I'm still on the verge of possibly returning my 64gb 6 and getting a 16gb 6+

    Same thing was happening to me. I went ahead and bought a pair of LG bluetooth headphones today. Work like a charm. I kept my phone in my gym bag throughout the workout. Kinda sucked that I had to dig it out to respond to texts, but was SO nice to not have it in my pocket for the first time in years. Give bluetooth headphones a try.

    The 6+ is too big for use in a gym. For me anyway.

    The leather case does add a lot of grip.

    Get a 6 plus and strap it to your stomach.

    Get tighter gym shorts and then worry about bending it rather than dropping it.

    Order a cheap used iPod Nano. Especially if you're a 6+ owner. I plan to go back to using an iPod Nano for the gym and running when/if I decide to upgrade to the 6.

    So your smaller iphone 6 is falling out of your shorts but you're thinking of returning it for the plus, I'm extremely perplexed over this.

    get lululemon gym shorts that have a iphone hip pocket, virtually impossible for my iphone to fall out of that pocket. The shorts are $60 but they are by far the most comfortable shorts that I have owned.

    Get a good durable case, put it in pants that have zipper pockets. Or even better leave it in the car or in the locker room while you exercise;)

    I think that shirt is great, but didn't OP say his phone kept falling out during his bench presses? Judging by the X-ray view of that shirt, OP would either crush his phone or *gasp* potentially bend it, if the bar were to fall on his chest.

    This.
    I have the plantronic backbeat go 2's and theyre excellent. Even came with a charging carrying case that adds more battery life to them. Highly recommended.
