    Default Belt holster or Jean Pocket

    Just curious how everyone is going to carry their new toy starring June 4th.

    pocket for sure. It feels significantly thinner than the htc hero, and at its largest width and length dimensions is not that much larger. I think a lot of people exaggerate the physical size of this phone. It has nothing on my old treo 650, haha. That thing was a brick and over time wore a hole in many pairs of my jeans with that nubbin of an antenna.

    I had a belt clip for my old dumbphone and a holster for my Pre, so I think I'd feel weird with the EVO in my pocket. (I'm used to having a Batman utility belt of pagers, phones, PDAs, swipe badges on.) I have a friend who dogs me for having a holster - "Putit in your pocket. You look like a dork." - and this may be just big enough to make pocketing it necessary. We'll see.

    Pocket here as well. I have always carried my phones there. I try hard to keep keys, change, etc out of there but i hope to get a screen protector just to be sure. Hopefully the EVO will hold up as well as my touch pro and tree did.

    I think maybe a holister depending on how it looks, I wear a watch and it gets in the way of reaching in my pocket. So well see

    I tried the silicone skin + pocket thing for about 5 seconds with an iPhone. I found that it was too "sticky" to get in and out whereas the phone alone would just slide in. I'm thinking pocket myself, but with just a Zagg shield or something to keep it slick and safe.

    BTW, @TheMobileWorx: That PhoneFraze app looks great, but the last thing I want to do is have a bunch of my hyped-up competitive friends passing my Evo around at a party with the clock ticking. Slip. Drop. Break. Stab.

    I messed up too many screens, even with protectors on them, to carry any phone in my pockets anymore. And several went through the washing machine because I forgot to take them out. Smaller phones ofcourse. So it is side holder for me. I always wear a belt anyhow, and use the holders that loop through the belt itself and not just clip onto it.
    If at first you don't succeed, then sky driving is not for you.

    I think its safe to say belt holster for me. That's how I made my intro onto the board actually. lol

    I carry my iPhone + Seidio case in my pocket, and I'll do the same with the EVO.

    Pocket.

    I made it a habit to always keep 1 pocket devoid of keys, and change (anything else goes into laptop bag). My pre is pristine...

    If I'm at work I don't mind wearing a holster, particularly if I'm doing something physically demanding in the lab or I'm out in the field doing something. If I'm going out though I tend to go with just my pocket, which is admittedly easier to manage in the winter with coats and stuff.

    Holster or a case that attaches to my belt. I've had too many experiences with cracked screens by reasons that only God knows how it happened with it in a pocket.

    I am definitely going to be using my pockets. Either that or carry it in my book bag, in its own pocket.

    Pocket. It's way too big for a girl to be wearing it on a belt and not look like a complete dork.

    I'm really trying not to make a certain joke right now, but it's getting pretty hard. Ah! There's another one!
