    i was called stupid and other things for mentioniing I carry my Note in my back pocket..."so you have to pull it out everytime you sit down? That's stupid!!!"...lol.

    Do you carry your phone in your back pocket? If i have a jacket on then I put it in the coat pocket.

    Might be OK, as long as you remember to take it out before you sit down....CRUNCH!!! Of course you might forget to put it back in your rear pocket when you get up, that could be bad, especially in a public place.

    Beware pickpockets as well. An expensive looking Galaxy Note hanging out of a rear pocket could be rather tempting. I'd certainly never keep a wallet in a rear pocket.

    Always carry my phone in front trouser pocket even when I'm wearing a jacket, as Mongolian style jackets don't usually have pockets.

    I sometimes carry in back. I have sat down and not broke. Empty pocket most important to me. No change, lighter to damage screen.

    Same here. I carry my phone in my bag (if I'm carrying one), the inside of a jacket pocket or in summer my front pants pocket.

    RMA would see PCMCIA modems returned for repair with a slight curve to them. One day, it dawned n them that the curve likely came from people putting the devices in their back pockets and then sitting down.

    No pockets for me except inside coat/jacket pocket. That's what the belt case is for.

    I always carry my phone in my back pocket, and always remember to take it out before sitting down.

    And that is a good place for it. I keep mine in my briefcase or a coat pocket. I use to keep it in my shirt pocket, but it tends to fall into the toilet when I bend over.

    I think we all can agree, we need tablets that can fold up into a decent small size ;)
    I say we'll see something like that within the next 10 years...

    Most of the people I know who carry their phone in any pants pocket are also the ones with cracked screens...funny thing is they can't for the life of them figure out how the screen got cracked!

    I always use a case and holster and my phones look brand new when I get rid of them.

    Since I've had this current phone, I usually put in front pants pocket, shirt pocket or coat pocket if wearing one.

    When in my shirt pocket, I've learned to hold it if I bend over. When in pants, I usually take it out if I'm going to sit down. I also make sure the pocket is empty.

    So far so good!

    @op i can understand why you put your phone in the back. the note is just too big for me. my friend has it and i used it to make a call and i just felt very silly with it.

    for me if a phone can't fit in my front pocket then it is too big.

    and i also take my phone out when i am going to be sitting. but i usually where baggy shorts so it still can be in my pocket comfortably.

    All of my phones have found their place in my right front pocket. I just could not think of putting it anywhere else. I never keep anything else in that pocket either. Phone only because I don't want anything else in there that my scratch the screen.

    I usually only see women carry their phones in back pockets as their front ones are next to nothing. Still considering getting a Note 2 but am just afraid that there's no way it'll fit in any of my pockets. My Gnex is already pushing it on some of my pants.

    Ok, so there was a particular word that was being used in this thread that got reported a few times. Even though I removed it, I would recommend people to please read the context of what is being said as well as the words being used. It wasn't an aimed insult (the OP was referring to what other people called him), so technically it wasn't against the rules. But, as I said, I removed it. I felt it would detract from the thread too much if left in.

    That said, I personally wear carpenter jeans all the time, so I keep my phone in my side right pocket and my front pockets keep pocket change, keys, etc.

    I keep my phone in my left side pocket of my pants, shorts, etc, always, it is a deep pocket and will never fall out. Jacket pockets are usually risky and could involve it falling out when you move.

    Back pockets are not the best idea either, from personal experience, my girlfriend has dropped her phone into the toilet like 4 times now, LOL, because she has it in her back pocket, i shouldn't need to explain the whole process of how though.

    Anyhow back pockets are badddd :)

    Then I must presume you are left-handed. My phone is in my left front, ready to be used in my left hand, and my keys are in my right front, ready to turn the lock and make a fast getaway.

    This, 100%. Phone alone in right front pocket. Left has wallet, keys, sometimes headphones. Wayyy too paranoid to risk having my phone in my back pocket.

    Just saw a girl in a store with those tight skinny jeans and an Iphone that didn't fit all the way down in her back pocket. What is the saying about temptation?

    I have a belt case that I use on side pocket. I don't own a belt.
