Default How do you carry your slide

How do you carry your phone? As of right now, I have screen protector (that came with it) and I put it in an old belt clip case. I was thinking about getting a hard black ruberized case from amzer, but I am not sure. Do you keep you phone in a case, snap on, naked? Do you carry in your pocket, belt, etc...?
If carrying in your pocket, is the screen overly sensitive to scracthes, etc.. My buddy as an eris and that screen seems like it would be very hard to scratch.

Just curious as to how everyone carries they phone.

Original screen protector (until full Skinomi TechSkin arrives), naked, in front left pocket. All other change, keys, etc, gets carried in other pockets, only the Slide goes in this one.

I talked to an otterbox rep and said that they didnt have in plans for making one for the slide but where thinking about doing so due to popular demand. I hope they do... there are no other cases on par with otterbox imo.

I wouldn't say nerd!!! Maybe I am just not cool anymore!!! LOL
Belt clips seem much more convenient then a pocket where it could get damaged. It seems I am too worried about it, because a lot of people seem to use nothing and just put it in the pocket. I dont have anything against that, i am just more worried about damaging the screen. Are the screens scratch resistant at all? my buddy has a droid and his screen seems like there is a hard plastic over it where it would prevent it from getting scratched without some serious effort behind it to scratch it.

I was out today looking for a case but no one has any. I think i may just go with a horizontal belt clip. I am not really big on just putting it in my pocket. I never have really been a fan on that. I hate having to dedicate a pocket to it. At least on a belt clip I dont have to worry as much about banging it, etc... just seems like it could get broken easier in the pocket.
I guess I will be one of the few people that still use a belt clip! lol

I got a $7 (microsuede?) cloth bag from TMobile. I put it in that and then keep it in my front pocket. I am annoyed at the lack of cool cases!!!

Yeah from my understanding, well according to the sales reps at tmobile, all the accessories for the slide have been delayed and should be arriving in stores on or around the 15th. Everything from gels, skins, cases, extra batteries, etc... They said they should be getting in the full line of accessorries like they carry for the regular mytouch.
I guess I'll wait and see.

Use invisible shield...phone looks naked and will stand up against even abuse from a dremil tool...google it and check out the vids. Little pricey though so I'll tell you a secret buy it direct from their website and use promo code "youmobile" for 20% off. Don't know if one for slide is out yet but if not it will be soon!

I was just about to post that I still didn't see it as being available when I found it. I'd been looking at their dropdown of available models which doesn't list the Slide, but using their other search tool shows it. I already ordered a full-body skin from Skinomi, but based on reviews I might have gone for the Invisible Shield instead... (Not that the TechSkin got bad reviews, just that the Invisible Shield got lots of good ones) Oh well, the Skinomi has a lifetime warranty so it can't be bad right?

I just picked up a universal belt clip/pouch (horizontal) from a Tmobile store for $20. Should suite me just fine!

Default Carrying the Mytouch Slide

I carry mine in an original G1 microfiber case. I have been a believer in the case ever since my g1 survived falling off of my truck going down the road with almost no damage...

I've been carrying my phones in my pocket for a while now (with a screen protector) and they've always looked pristine. I take really good care of my devices and never drop them. My hubby on other hand has managed to drop his on a number of occasions trying to put it on his clip on case. It's all a matter of making an effort to take care of it. I actually stopped using a case when I got a work cell phone. Seriously, how geeky does it look having TWO cell phones on your belt?
