    When you travel, wear dress pants and a tie where do you wear or keep your phone all day? I don't wear a suit jacket so the jacket pocket is out. Curious where you keep your phone and how you stay in touch with the office?

    Have you found a good belt case that will not pop off and attaches or clips to the belt as a holster case? I'm afraid to keep the iSkin solo case in my pockets?

    I have two cases I'm sure others have many more?
    Thank you,
    Michael

    i just use my incase slider and toss it in my pocket

    wearing a phone on a belt loop looks unprofessoinal IMO

    Funny you say this. Almost every Dr/lawyer I see carry their phones and pagers on belt clips.

    I do not like to see screen out on a clip. To me that could be dangerous.

    Left pants pocket.
    Belt clips are becoming passe'.
    And don't stereotype doctors (lawyers I can understand).

    hmm. Well to say it looks unprofessional when in fact most/ a LOT of professionals use clips/holsters seems a little queer don't you think?

    In my pocket.
    Or if I'm feeling squirelly, in my butt.

    And what is your meaning of the word "queer". Choose your words wisely.

    Inside jacket pocket, though a belt clip is probably the best option as it doesn't look like an unsightly bulk in your suit, I just never got around/liked one enough to buy it.

    No one has to see your belt clip, you can have it at the back, to the side hidden under your jacket..

    -----

    Slightly off-topic.. you guys actually have your ringer on on the phone? I just use vibrate..

    In an inner pocket in my purse, regardless of whether I'm dressed up or not. :)

    Well, used to carry it always in my pocket. Now just got the newly redesigned Incase Leather Folio so am using that with my Incipio Feather. I love the combo. I keep my phone on vibrate a lot and feel the vibration a lot better on my hip then I did with it in the pocket.

    Any place other than my pocket with the screen facing in is asking for trouble. If I wore a holster clip with the screen facing outward, I'd break the screen in less than a day. Suit coat pocket is the preferred location when wearing a dress coat. Most of the time I keep it in my briefcase when I have that with me.

    I used its traditional meaning not it's modern interpretation. It's stated quite clearly in the dictionary if you have any other inquiries.
