    Do guys really still use belt holsters for their mobile phones? I can see for those using them for work or professionally but socially?

    Seems like men should keep them in their pockets. Around here at least a guy with a phone on his hip is not much unlike a fanny pack ;-)

    If you're going to use a holster, you should probably make sure you always have a BT headset on all the time too. And sunglasses regardless of the time or weather.

    ROFL. When I was a CrackBerry user I had a holster until my girlfriend pointed out the fact that I'm 41 and not 71...lol I will not carry my X in a holster. It doesn't deserve that...lol

    It's a subjective matter.

    Some do. Some don't. I don't carry my phone "socially" (what does that mean?).

    You seem to worry a lot about what others do... Do what you want.

    1. Of course it is subjective, this is an internet forum, hence the thread looking for other opinions in a humorous thread.
    2. Socially, as in not for work, at work etc. Carrying the device on your hip daily.
    3. Not worried in the least, see #1

    Mine goes in a holster everyday....and a big Otterbox holster at that.


    I don't worry about where people carry a phone. Honestly, if you can comfortably carry a Droid X in your front pocket more power to you.

    I use one. Get laughed at by my family.
    I also have never sat on it. The holster is the reason it is in perfect condition.

    I sacrifice my style for my phone.

    I use a holster because it's just easier. Clip on, use phone, snap back in. Plus if I put it in my pocket I know I'd crush it by leaning or carrying something heavy. It's usually in it's holster next to my gun holster. Both are there in case I need them.

    I used to use the holster daily for months...it never seemed like an out of style thing and still doesn't imo, but style doesn't really matter so yeah, I stopped because I got tired of getting it stuck on my pocket when trying to slide the phone out. I always use the shell that came with the holster though when I leave my apartment, and the holster still for extra protection during football/capture the flag/tree climbing. It's all preference.

    Can someone answer for me how a holster can be a "style" choice in the first place? I mean, it's a utility. A tool.

    If a holster can be a "style" choice, then so can: a cigarette pack, a grocery bag, and a water/drink bottle.

    I'd love to see someone who's "style" is cramped by these things drinking out of a ziplock bag, lighting up mangled, linty cigarettes, and carrying their weekly groceries sans bag.

    "Oh, sorry dude - it's not "in" to drink out of corporate packaging anymore, so I use a generic zip-lock, or sheep bladder."

    Look, if you're forsaking fanny packs, cell holsters and God knows what other utilities as a "style" choice, for the discomfort of loading your linty pockets down with your swag, then I'm afraid you lack the capacity to distinguish form from function.

    I hope backpacks, baggage, and wallets don't go out of style.

    I can't stand holsters or anything else hanging off my body like necklaces and watches. It's uncomfortable for me. Also I can see a holster easily coming off your belt and falling on the ground. A phone is safer in your pocket IMO.
