    How does it "feel" to hold a square brick to your head? Most phones cradle a bit to allow your shoulder to catch them as you balance it with no hands (since we know we drive with our heads tilted changing the radio and sucking down a coffee :D)

    I see that Jobs has always held his properly with his hand up to his head, but let's face it.... most of use only touch the phone with our hands while we are sticking it to our ear and shoulder.

    Sure there are work arounds...... hands free, speaker, blah blah.... but realistically if we are cruising the local stores and don't have our ear bud stuck in our ear 24/7 so we just shove our phones to our shoulder and continue on.

    I know it is supposed to have the sensor to turn the faceplate off so at least you are not dialing Peru when it's against your head, but the ultimate question and point of the thread is

    " how easy is it to stick this thing to your shoulder and continue working if you get a call?"

    Secondly, how easy is it to grab? I know holding an Ipod is not exactly the best fit for your hand in terms of contour.

    I don't know, I almost never hold the phone with my shoulder, unless I am doing something with two hands for a short period of time.

    I am not sure where you got the idea most people always talk on the phone like that.
