For ladies, normally we put our cell phones in our handbags when we go out. Some of my female colleagues like to carry their cell phones by hanging around their necks. They were saying that they couldn't hear the phones ringing if they put their cell phones in their handbags. For gentlemen, I observed many put their cell phones in their pants' pockets, be it side pockets or back pockets. Some of them put their cell phones in their shirt pocket, my dad is one of them. On the other hand, my hubby likes to put his cell phone in a cell phone leather case strapped to his belt. So where do you guys put your cell phones when you go out?

I placed it inside my bag's pocket to be sure that it will not get lost due to unavoidable circumstances.

Most guys won't put their cell phones in a bag. But I do understand that sometimes, the cell phones will slip out of the pants' pockets and thus get lost. Thanks for your responses. Cheers =))

I usually put my cell phone in my handbag or if I don't bring one with me, I'll put it in my pocket. So I can know when it's ringing in my handbag I put the ringer on and vibration mode at the same time, so if I don't hear it, i can feel or see my handbag moving.:)

I also set my cell phone to ring and vibrate mode. But I just can't get to hear or feel my cell phone ringing when I put it in my bag. Maybe, I am a blur blur person not so sensitive =))

I always carry my cell phone..I put my mobile phone in my jean's front pocket,when I am wearing jeans..Or other wise I prefer keeping it in my purse or hand bag. Most of the time I put it in my pocket in vibrate mode.

Hello tuyakiki, thanks for your response again. I also tried to carry my cell phone every time I go out cos you never know you will need it during emergency situation. I will not miss any calls if I put my cell phone in my pocket cos I can feel the vibration. But if I put it in my bag, then I will miss my calls most of the time.....lol

Hello thhoon72, I used to put my cellphone in my pocket at first, but after losing it, I decided to purchase a leather case and have it strapped to my belt or pants. However this didn't really work out well for me, especially since my shirt is not tucked and thus it would bulge out. Since things are not going to well in my country crime-wise, it would be relatively silly to wear one's cellphone around their neck, unless it is a very cheap, outdated model. I have resorted to placing it in a hip bag, which is quite popular where I live. :) Happy myLotting!

Hello there, thanks for your response. I think for a guy, a hip bag is a good alternative to leather case or putting the cell phone in the pant's pocket. Cheers =))

If I carry a handbag or bag, then I will also put my cell phone inside. But I always miss my calls cos I cannot hear the phone ringing inside the bag. Cheers =))

I am a guy so I bought a little cell phone carrier that the cell phone slips into and I wear it on my belt. That makes it handy and easy to answer when it rings. I was keeping it in my shirt pocket before I got the phone carrier but was always afraid of it falling out and losing it when I bent over to pick something up. If my shirt had no pocket I used to keep it in my pants pocket but didn't like carrying it there with all the other stuff in my pockets, change, keys, etc. I didn't want to scratch it up.

Hello greenwizard, my hubby is just like you. He got this cell phone leather case that he straps to his belt. He also don't like to put his cell phone in his pant's pockets cos he said he already got many stuffs in his pockets and he don't like his pockets to look fat.

Oh yes, N73 is a good phone. If I have a good and expensive cell phone, I will also take good care of it. My sister got a N95, she also keeps her in a pouch and clean the screen of her phone very often. Currently, I am using a cheap Samsung phone, so I am not so particular about it. Cheers =))

Hmmm... nowsadays seldom people go out without taking their cell phone with them unless it is like going across the road to the convenient stores only. If there is no pocket and no bag, I think for ladies, we can use a cell phone strap and carry it strapping at our wrist, but for guys, think you have to hold it in your hand which is open to risk of losing or misplacing it.

I put my cell phone either in my bag or in my pocket. Most time it gets in my bag especially if its a big bag.

I also carry quite a big bag most of the time. When my cell phone rings, I will have a hard time digging in my big bag o find my cell phone especially the bag did not comes with a smaller compartment for me to put my cell phone. Then I will end up missing most of my calls. Cheers =))

I always keep my mobile in college bag & i always forget to keep it in silence.....& then BANGGGG it starts ringing in the middle of my lecture............

If your lecturer is kind, then I don't think he will kick a big fuss. But if like me many years back, my cell phone rang during a important meeting with my MD, he told me off straight away in the meeting. I was so embrarrassed and from then on I remembered to switch my cell phone to silent mode whenever I attend meeting. Cheers =))

Normally, I will put my cell phone inside a small case or bag for cell phones and then, place it inside my handbag. It's more convenient, but if I just carry a purse for dinner, I will put the phone inside without the casing. I set the ringing tone together with the vibrating tone so that if I don't hear it ringing, at least I could feel the vibration. As hubby is carrying a bag, and have 2-3 cell phones, I often see him put the important one inside his pocket and the rest inside his bag.

Looks like you are always expecting important calls from your cell phones. My hubby used to have 2 cell phones previously, one is for work another is for personal. Take care =))

Hello corrycrystal, I used to be you. But as I always fail to hear my cell phone ringing or realised that my cell phone is ringing very late, it is very inconvenient for me to take the cell phone pouch out then got to take the cell phone out from it. So, by the time I answer the call, it is always too late....hahaha.....

My hubby told me the reason why he don't like to put his cell phone in his pocket is because there are already many things in his pockets like wallet, house keys, car keys, motor bike keys, coin pouch, etc... Also, it make his pant's pocket looks fat.

I put my cell phone in the bag, which has about 8 compartments in and out. One is specially for the cell phone. I will never put it on the neck. However tiny the phone, it weighs much for the neck.

The main reason why I don't hang my cell phone around my neck is I think it is not so pretty to hang the cell phone around the neck (personal view, so no offense to anyone) and also due to radiation. Happy myLotting =))

Yes, I have read about many reports on the harmful radiation from cell phone. That is why it is not encouaged to hang it around your neck cos the cell phone will be near the heart. Many teenagers in my country like to hang their cell phones around their necks with fanciful landyard and accessories. Thanks for your response =))
