    How do you plan on carrying your Hero around with you?

    If you chose 'Pocket with Case', please post a link to the case you're using (if/when a link is available).

    If you chose 'Belt Clip / Holster', please post a link to the clip/holster you're using (if/when a link is available).

    If you chose 'Other', please post whatever your other solution is.


    As for me, I've always been a phone-in-the-front-pocket guy, but I keep hearing more about how it shortens battery life and increases the chances for a cracked screen, so I thought I'd create this poll and see what other people thought and were planning to do with their Heroes.

    After carrying mine around all day today, I will be going into my pocket, but I need to find a suitable case.

    Carry it! Are you kidding?

    It's on a pedestal under bullet proof glass.

    Zagg protection and probably a gel case of some type in my front left pocket screen facing in so as not to bump some corner of something and risk breaking the screen.

    I am a front pocket guy, too. I'll be getting a screen protector from Zagg (or more likely "Best Skins Ever". I had one on my Curve and it was amazing. My only concern is lint in the trackball, but it's a small concern.

    I am using my Instinct case for now. The Hero fits perfectly although I am sliding the Hero in upside down so as not to put pressure on the trackball. Stays protected in my right front pocket until I can come up with something better.

    Zagg + gel case, front right pocket screen in.

    I do admit to casing it a few times. I have a cheap HTC leather case that I throw it in when I go near the beach (Live in Fl - west coast).

    If I go near water/sand, I ziploc bag it.

    No case. Front left pocket. Keys, change, etc goes in front right pocket.

    My Curve 8900, which has a 3M film on it, now goes in the pocket with the keys and change. :(

    LOL I put my keys in my right pocket and change in the left. I may have to consider doing this.

    I've been using an old Oakley Sunglasses microfiber pouch to carry mine around. Works great to clean the fingerprints off the screen and cuts down on the scratches and pocket-lint.

    I plan to get a gel cover and invisi-shield when they finally get to BB stores.

    Very interesting responses. :p

    I'm surprised at the number of people that carry their phones in their front left pockets. Statistics say that most people are right-handed, so I'd have thought the phone would go in the right front pocket.

    Not to speak for everyone righty, but it seems most of us put our keys in the right pocket. Which would make more sense to house the phone away from the keys. Either in a back pocket, or the left. As stated, I prefer the left, as Im too worried I'll forget and sit on my phone should I store it in the back pocket.

    For some reason I usually get hit on my right hand side...even if I'm walking my right hand side will get hit by a corner of a table or something... I will try carrying on my left side and see the results
