Question for ladies about iPhone carrying options???
My wife is interested in switching from a PalmOne Centro to an iPhone for a variety of the features. However, since moving from a phone to a "smartphone" in general, one constant annoyance for her has been how to carry the phone when she doesn't want to take her purse with her. Putting it on a belt clip and then on her waist seems to make clothes sag (unless she has a well-cinched belt on) and particularly with nicer work clothes. Holding the phone in her hand or on a wrist strap feels bothersome after awhile. I don't know of other carrying options except something like a waist pack and wondering... are there any professional ladies that have found a comfortable carrying option for your iPhone? If so, what would you suggest she consider and/or avoid to address the above issues?
Thanks for any feedback!

Let's face it, women dress differently from men. I don't own anything with a belt, and don't own any case with a belt clip for this reason. I try to buy sweaters or vests with pockets just to keep my phone. Otherwise, I tend to just toss it in a side pocket of my purse - alone, so it's its own case.

I pretty much only wear jeans or something with pockets. If using a case with a belt clip, I clip it to my pocket. If not, I put my phone in my front jean pocket. Or if I'm wearing a hoodie, it goes in that pocket.
I know that probably wasn't much help...

Gee this is a hard one;
If she doesn't carry a purse she doesn't want to, wear the phone on a clip, carry the phone in her hand or use a wrist strap, I think the only other options are wearing an iPhone Sports Band on her arm, wearing the phone around her neck on a strap, putting the phone in her pocket (if she has one), or leaving it at home.....
The clothing issue seems to be a big one. My wife runs a ballroom dance center and between the clothing they wear and the dancing, having something clipped to her outfit is generally a no-go at work which is okay for her. But, all the time to/from work and any activities she does (shopping, errands, whatever) while she's in work clothes makes "clip on" type of carrying options dicey.
For those that carry in their pockets, I would have thought the iPhone would be too bulky for that? I use belt clip cases in general, but most of my clothes have belts so it's not an issue. It's not a bother putting into a pocket???
