    Been taking my Dinc on walks/jogs, but don't have any type of case yet. I've just been holding onto it. Seems like a case attached to my pants would jerk around too much, might be a little less movement on the arm...I don't have ear buds yet either, been crankin the Slacker/Pandora...headed to Amazon to price some buds shortly.
    I put my phone in my pocket and it pulled up the internet somehow...would also like a way to make sure nothing unwanted pops up.
    Any suggestions for a case? Or tips for use while walking/jogging?
    Thanks

    I used my Inc for a walk last week using SportyPal. This was the Sunday after I got it so I was basically just trying it out. Worked great.

    I used to use my Omnia for jogging. I got an iPod wrist band (which fits the Inc, too) and used a stereo bluetooth headset to play my music through.

    Sorry, this might not help you much but I'll say it anyway. Get an iPod for that, it also comes with headphones. An 8GB Nano costs around $125 and leave that beautiful phone at home. You'll sweat it all up, fock up the battery or the screen and feel like crap. That's assuming you have some money to spend. If you don't, then I'm sure someone else will give you a hand here.

    I always bring my phone anywhere I go, in case of emergency. I plan to fire up a selection of music then not touch the phone again until I'm done/home.
    Looking at earphones with volume control...anyone use KOSS? On the cheaper side at 30 bucks, but seem ok.

    Motorola Rokr S9 comes with an arm band. No wires, no problems when I take mine with me. Answers calls, has a great mic. Best accessory you can have.

    I've been looking for days for a good set of stereo bluetooth head phones for cycling. I looked at the samsung headphones that you have and reviews were awful. It looks like the break where the neck band joins the earpiece. I hope yours are doing okay.

    I was able to fit (very tightly) my Incredible into my previous Nike neoprene ipod nano arm strap. The the phone doesn't jiggle or move at all. It's not an elegant fit at all, but it got the job done until something better is released.

    I love this phone :)

    I put my Incredible in a waterproof Spibelt when I go running, works great.

    Have you tried swimming with the waterproof Spibelt, i have always wondered if the gps will pick up a signal.

    If you look at just about every stereo BT headset, they all have this problem. It actually happened to me with the first couple sets I got (different types). What I did when I got this set was I took some electrical tape and just reinforced about 2" on each side. I've been using them since last fall without a problem.

    Etymotic ETY8 doesn't have that problem.

    No, haven't tried the Spibelt swimming yet. Not sure I trust it that much to risk getting my phone wet.

    Been having lots of trouble with sportypal.... I went on the tread mill and logged 3 miles, but when I checked sportypal it said ... distance = 0.

    What's up with that :thinking:

    I've used SP for the past couple days and today it shut down about 1/2 mile before I was finished. Not sure what happened, was carrying the phone in my hand. I also know the max speed is wrong because I was walking with two friends with jogging here and there..and the max speed is marked where we were walking. It's also marked as infinity mph...hehe. I like uploading to the site but I might try CT tomorrow.

    distance is measured through the gps tracking. on a treadmill, you're just in the same position.

    It can't measure your tread mil runs, you need to be outside, i'm usually cycling with it, and it's just fine no bigger mistakes than half a mile
