    [QUOTE=Bonhomme Richard;4436546]I keep my iPhone on a belt clip. Actually it's one that took me a long time to find, as it had to be perfect -- sleek, strong, unobtrusive, and afforded easy access. Emphasis on slim. I can't stand bulky things in my pockets. Also, all the research on cell phone radiation is still inconplete, and I'd rather keep my phone away from sensitive areas. I keep a card holder in my left pocket and a money clip in my right. I have a blackberry for work but keep it in my briefcase.[/QUOTE]

    I use a belt clip at work only. I have a cell as well as a remote desktop IP phone that I need to carry. I cannot stand anything in my pockets. Keep the bank in the chest pocket, license, cash and Amex is how I roll. Outside the office I carry it. Once in a while I will drop it in the pocket for a few minutes if I am in the store and have too much to carry.

    My phone is too big for my pocket, so I use a clip. I have one of the biggest phones around.


    :cool:

    I work in IS. Lots of programmers/DBAs/assorted techies over here keep their iPhones/Blackberries in a belt clip.

    So the answer is yes, extremely dorky.

    And just so you know, I go with the SAR setup. Only I do the phone in the left pocket, and the money clip in the right.

    Oh and guys who keep their bluetooth on their ear all day aren't dorks. They're douche-bags.

    When not in a jacket pocket (winter) or backpack (work), they go in the left front pocket with the money clip. It's a plastic wireless circuit fob; not like there are any actual keys on it.

    Hang on.

    Backpack?

    You bring a backpack to work? And you think a cell phone belt clip is lame?

    Is it one of those LL Bean jobs with your initials embroidered on it? Do you use a really rad pencil case too?

    Could be one for a laptop. My company gave me one that I never use (I prefer my laptop bag).

    You never use it because you're not a child.

    You'd be surprised how many people do use them.

    I'm well aware, it's one of my pet peeves.

    The only adult male who should wear a backpack to work is a professional mountain climber.

    I've been using "executive" styled backpacks for 10+ years now. The one I use currently uses a messenger bag style strap. Because all I need this for is transporting documents and an iPad each day, I got one that is very slim and light. Has a padded area to slip the iPad in/out of, very cool for air travel as the iPad can stay in the bag thru the scanner too. The messenger strap works on a single shoulder or can be worn properly on the back which is useful when needing both hands for the morning coffee enroute to the office.

    Once you're a seasoned, veteran commuter and air traveler you learn it's all about the bulk and the weight and a briefcase just doesn't cut it. I'd estimate that about 35% of the businessmen I see on the trains and in the office use backpacks in one form or another.

    Words can't even begin to describe how lame that is. An "executive" backpack? If all you need to carry is an iPad and some papers, why do you look like a ****ing sherpa summiting Everest as you trudge up an escalator? And what kind of wrinkled hell does that wreak on your freshly pressed shirt?

    Yet another example of the Downfall of Men.

    Once the word "Executive" is attached to a commuting item...it has jumped the shark.

    A true executive commutes in the back seat of a black car or a helicoptor, whilst speaking authoritatively on the phone and gesturing wildly.

    "make it so, number one!!!" That sort of thing...

    Sans backpack.
