    This was my first day at the gym with the 6 Plus and it was really hard to do some exercises with it in my pocket as its too big. I like to listen to music, so I have it all the time. How do you guys manage its size? An armband/holster? Bluetooth headphones?

    I really wanted the plus, awesome device. But I work out a lot and that was the deal breaker for me carrying it at the gym.

    Got the plus, I still have my trusty iPod touch 5th Gen... once the  watch comes out I can just bluetooth from that like I previously did ... so for me that's a non issue (plus I get my workout done faster not looking at my iPhone have to time texting and fb'ing or whatever, although I catch myself looking in my iPod and there's no wifi there lol)

    I have an iPod Classic, but I keep all my music on Rdio, so that's a problem. I have my 5S and will probably use that if I don't work this out.

    Its just too big to be practical. And heavy on your arm after 30 min or so. I tried it.

    I am totally serious also. I have done it twice this week. Although Coban is not the cheapest when using it frequently so I ended up using a little more tape. Works really well!

    How small are your guys' pockets that it feels that big?

    I wear basketball shorts when I work out and those tend to have deep pockets.

    My concern will be it falling out of deep workout pockets when I am moving around. I can't tell you how many times I am on a seated chest machine or similar and hear my phone hit the ground. I had this problem with my Note 2. My solution was an iPod nano and leaving my phone in the locker. I can be out of contact for an hour.

    Try a Spibelt. You'll need the large one for the Plus, but it'll keep it nice and secure around your waist. I use a Spibelt when I run with my 6 or when I'm at the gym and am wearing shorts/pants with no pockets.

    The 6 Plus is to big for the gym or running. I've been swapping the sim card to my 5 for the gym and running and golfing.

    Even when not using my med tape fix, I don't find the 6+ cumbersome at all.

    Been using the Motorola S11-Flex HD for a year or so now. Doesn't solve your "where do I put the phone problem?" but I have worked out pretty hardcore with these from interval training, to heavy bag training boxing, kick boxing, and Muay Thai.iPhone 6 Plus at the gym-imageuploadedbyimore-forums1412727343.424193.jpg

    They are really nice, but I would need to get an armband to hold the phone too. I wouldn't leave it on the floor. Thanks

    I have been using these since they were released. Actuality I have two sets because I can't workout without them.

    I have a 6 and a 6 plus and I just leave the phone on the bench next to when I am working out. Of course I go to the gym at 4am so there aren't a lot of people around.
