Keeping it in your pocket....

Mine is in my pocket every day and nothing has ever happened. Not really sure about the thread posted above but can't imagine how a phone would open in your pocket (maybe [playing pocket pool?). I have never had a scratch or had it turn on and have been doing this with phones for the past 3 years. As for holster I have bumped them and had the phone fall out so I think the pocket is the safest place.

I put my keys in the other pocket along with any change.

I've got nothing else in that pocket (I keep my keys on a ring clipped to a belt loop), I just wasn't sure if going a couple of months before getting the belt holster is dangerous for it or not.

I keep mine in my pocket and put on the table/desk when sitting down. I have pulled my droid out of my pocket and it would be an inch or so open, probably because I drop it into my pocket instead of putting it in gently. My phones/ipods etc always have dedicated pockets to avoid scratches.

I get nervous putting my gadgets in pockes from lint.....sometimes you get the right piece of something to scratch it up :eek:

So I just keep it in a side holster case

I've also noticed that from time to time the keyboard will slide open in my pocket. I don't think it's a problem and I haven't noticed battery drain because of it turning the display on.

First post here. Great source of info.

I've carried my BB Pearl in my pocket for the last 2 years. The camera was rendered useless from the lint. The trackball gave me hell for a year from the lint. Finally replaced the trackball just in time to get the Droid.

nothing wrong with a holster, but i generally keep it my my suit's inside pocket. just not really a fan of the utility belt/school janitor look. it's really a personal choice, imho. as long as you don't keep change or keys in the same pocket as the phone, you should be alright.

Similar here. I usually do keys in right, back pocket. Wallet in left, back. Phone in left, front.

now i know which pocket your phone is in!

i always keep my phone in my pocket. the holsters look so dated and weird to me.

generally my keys are in another pocket so i don't really worry about it.

i find it weird that people are having the phone open on them. my slide mechanism is pretty solid, takes some force (not a lot, but just enough) to open it...

Yea, I'm praying my slider remains this solid. It requires a good amount of force. The perfect amount, IMO. I don't want it to get easier/loose and feel cheap and flimsy.

i figure by the time the slider gets loose, i'll probably have gotten a new phone, it's gotta last 4 to 6 months right? ;)

i'm sure it will, the phone seems to be built very well.

i'm just saying. i don't know if i'll be able to resist the temptation of the passion when it drops.

especially if it has 2.0 with Sense at release.
