    I called around too when I wanted to pick one up. The cheapest place to get it seems like its from the actual site. I even checked Ebay and Amazon before making the purchase directly from them.

    Great minds must think alike cuz I did the same thing! LOL I found one on ebay for the same price as my local store. I might just suck it up & pay my local store. One question though....they had this for a few phones...I should get the iPhone one correct? I'm not sure if they have one for the X but if they do wouldn't that fit the best for the Bionic since it's basically the same size?

    The wife and I are avoid runners and needed to find a solution for carrying our phones while running as we use the map my run app and use our phones for our music. She had the charge and I have the bionic. We were able to find that best buy had a universal arm band for Android phones. We were skeptical but the thingis awesome. Not sure it would work for you body building types.

    Also, on a side note, the motorola Bluetooth headphones are phenomenal.

    Thanks definitely user error on my part.

    Using the app and didn't notice there were multiple pages worth of posts here.

    Appreciate the quick answer.

    First welcome back! And don't forget to change out of your bell-bottoms! I have two questions - first, at which
    Best Buy did you find your armbands? And second, is it the S9 Motorola headphones you have? That's what I have and they seem to cut out far too often, not sure if it's the battery not being fully charged or what. I agree they sound very good, but only when they work properly.

    Hey guys, just a quick update.

    I ordered the Arkon XL from Amazon

    Amazon.com: Arkon XL-ARMBAND Sports Armband for Large Smartphones - 1 Pack - Retail Packaging - Black: Cell Phones & Accessories

    It is a PERFECT fit for the Bionic. Very comfortable on the arm, touch screen works, and it also has a flap inside for card or money storage. Couldn't be happier. I've been using it for a couple weeks now lifting weights and running and it is exactly what I wanted.

    Edit: forgot to mention, but my bionic has the regular battery and no case. Although this arm band would fit well with the extended battery.

    For those of you that have the ones with the plastic covering the front of the phone, do you find any problems with that? Either affecting the touch screen or condensation problems?

    It's been awhile since this post started. Did you ever get one mikespe? I've been looking for an armband for trail running / workouts and just came across this post. Problem is I do a decent amount of weightlifting too, and haven't ever found a phone armband that fit decent. My upper arm (bicep) is 16.5" cold.

    BuckyN8, you said that it's comfortable on a 15" arm, do you think there's enough adjustment left in the strap to fit 16.5-17" comfortably?

    Still sticking with my original post on this thread from Amphipod.
    Used it both for my marathon (26.2 miles of non-stop running with the EXTENDED battery) as well as daily normal weight workouts and calisthenics at the gym with both the normal and extended battery. Accommodates both batteries, free and clear access to the touch screen, side buttons, everything. Super-light-weight and adjustable for all kinds of arm sizes due to the wrap-around strap and not necessarily a velcro strap set-up (which I used with my iPod and my OG Droid for 3 years. It's really great. My preference was to not have plastic over my screen, so this suited me well.
