I always put the phone up to my left ear. I don't think I have ever even tried using my right ear. O.k. maybe once I did but it just didn't feel right. I wonder what ear everyone else uses for the phone?

Hi Shar19 I always use my right ear but then I guess I am right handed so that would be why. Are you left handed? I do change ears during a call if I it is a long call!

I am left handed. I think I have changed ears before if I was in the middle of doing something.

So that makes perfect sense then you being left handed, most often than not you put the phone to your left ear and me right handed, right ear, unless you are doing something and need to swap or it is a long conversation!

Hi Shar Whenever I take a call I use either... I heard before that it's better to use the left ear especially when answering a cellphone because of the radiation. But it's not clear why the left ear should be used lol...

It probably won't feel right.

I hold the phone up to my right ear all the time unless my right ear is starting to hurt of get sweaty from being on the phone for a long time. I think I actually hear better out of my right ear, but maybe it is just because I am right handed and it seems more normal to hold it that way.

I also put the phone up to my left ear, even though I am right-handed. It just doesn't feel comfortable when I try to hold it up to my right ear. I am able to walk around and do other things when it is up to my left ear, but I can't get anything done when the phone is up to my right ear - I have to be sitting still. Weird.

I always use my right ear to talk on the phone. I've tried my left ear but like you with the right, it didn't feel right. My husband always uses his left. I think it's funny how it's different for people.

I normally use my left ear as my phone is normally in my left pocket. So it makes sense to take my phone out my pocket with my left hand then put to my left ear. A few times i might put the phone to my left ear but only if someone is on my left side.
