    You might find a silicon or hard plastic case that might have something for landyards and charms. :)

    I'd be worried about any lanyards or charms making constant contact with the screen and possibly scratching it.

    I know the screen is scratch resistant, but I wouldn't take the risk.

    Charms are for bracelets and cereal (the lucky kind ;)).

    I dont know the answer to your question...
    but..

    this website is selling Lanyards and charms for the EVO.
    I would take a guess that the EVO must have a slot for it. ;)

    I asked a friend who already has an Evo (from Google i/o) whether there is a slot for a lanyard and he said no. I took a picture with his phone and was nervous about dropping it onto the sidewalk without a case or lanyard.

    @OP. This site: Cell Phone Sticky
    I am waiting for them to become available again. It's perfect for phones with no place for lanyards/cell phone charms. Note: I would attach it to a case as it can't be removed once it's attached. HTH

    Ahhh, my old pink fusic! LOL! I have a Coach charm that I used on my Centro, but I don't think I would put it on the EVO. I agree that I'd be afraid to scratch it. :(

    Interesting.

    And I'm willing to bet that it could be removed, as I'm willing to bet that it is a two-sided adhesive tape being used. And because of that, I'd be wary of using it with a lanyard. The tape becomes your weakest point if you're dangling your phone around.

    Ought to be perfectly good for charms though. I just wouldn't recommend it for securing the phone via a lanyard.

    No it doesn't have one, but you could always poke a couple holes in a case for cell phone charms, although I'd never use a lanyard on it this way.

    Send it to me. I've got a great cordless drill. Where do you want the hole?

    To OP, I understand completely why your wife would want a phone charm/lanyard hole on the Evo.

    For us girls, phone charms help us find the phone in our purses and pull them out with ease if they're in pockets.

    Judging the size of the Evo, I guess there's no need for a phone charm. lol. :p

    These are very durable. The tape is strong which is why I don't recommend using it on your actual phone but on a case because it won't come off.

    Don't you already have an Evo? If you do, then you should know.

    My apologies if I'm mistaking you for someone else.

    See that's where the my apologies comes in. I didn't see the date and my computer made it seem like there was only a couple replies.

    Grow up and go ride your bmx bike.
