    Ive had instances sitting down with gym or sweatpants and the iphone would just casually slip right out of my pocket, thank god it landed on rug. it forces me to grab my pocket then sit down and shove the phone near my genetalia. jeans all day, thank you apple

    Uh ok. I think this goes for many things one might put in their sweat pants pocket.

    One of the plethora of reasons that men should not wear sweatpants...:D (from a woman's point of view ;))

    this occured to me today, iPhone slipped out on the couch and i left the living room only to see 4 missed calls and 7 text messages, i thought someone died while i was away from my phone:(

    also once i was jogging back to school (left something in my locker on a friday) and iPhone flies out of my pocket and takes a major bruising against the pavement, Sweatpants+iPhones never work out:(

    I know very little of algebra but I suspect that iPhone may be representing a zero value here; as I know that Sweatpants = DON'T DO IT
    :p

    I have had the issue when putting my iPhone into pajamas in the past, but iti si easily rectified with a rubber bumper or common sense

    Does anyone have any experiences with parachute pants? In the event that it becomes "that" time, I don't want my iPhone to suddenly fall out of my pocket while busting what is considered "a move."

    Possibly the first use ever of the term "genitalia" on MacRumors?

    Yes, but we've got to put our phones somewhere, especially in a hurry.

    I did that once. That's why the bottom left corner of my phone is slightly chipped. :(

    I love wearing sweats. And I love my iPhone.

    Walking around with my hand constantly in my pocket, securing the iPhone in the process, probably makes the females wonder why I'm constantly grabbing Mr. Winky.

    Damn if I'll give up my sweats, though.

    Yeah -- this is a kind of an odd thread.

    Lol! This is a good one. :) also don't place your iphone4 on a wet glass table, it is very hard to get it off.
