I use what is essentially a fanny pack by Amphipod. It is big enough for my ID, house key and my old style flip phone. Adding my car key puts a little more stress on the elastic waist band.

Why would you need your phone on a run?

Well, if you are me, your runs can be up to 3 hours in length (hello 20 miles last weekend!)... I use it primarily for listening to music, but also - I'm a mother and need to always be reachable in case of an emergency!

I usually keep mine in the top of pocket of my camelbak, but I'm considering getting an armpocket (anyone have one?) so I have better access to it and have somewhere to put it when I don't want to wear my camelbak.

As a music junkie, I always have my phone on me (I stream and download music using an app). I also like it have it on me in case of emergencies. I have a Marika running belt that I really like. It has dual adjustable straps and pockets that securely hold my phone and small items like keys or chapstick. The armbands typically don't fit me (I also struggle with bracelets...they slide right off LOL), and this has been the best option so far.

Sorry for not explaining earlier. The reason I take my phone out a lot is because, when I run alone, I listen to podcasts. I pull out the phone to skip over commercial breaks and sometimes like to go backward within an episode to listen to something again. And so on. Also, occasionally pull the phone out to take a picture.

I have one that straps to my upper arm and is large enough to accept my iPhone AND the Mophie battery case. I also use wireless headphone. I also put the phone on Do Not Disturb mode so I get no calls (usually).

Why would you need to take your phone out often during a run?

I use a Tune belt, hooking it sometimes to my hydration belt, but mostly wearing it on my arm. It isn't particularly friendly for using a lot during runs/workouts when it in the pouch, but you can adjust volume pretty easily. I pretty much set it to what I want and then go.

I tuck mine into my fanny pack/running bag while I run. It's out of the way, but still there if I need it in case of emergency. Otherwise, I don't even look at it while I run. Sound is off.

I love this clip. It works with other cases that look prettier than the black one it comes with. My phone slides in and out very easily. I use an otter box when it's raining out.

What do you use to hold your cell phone?

At a recent expo, I was seduced by a salesperson to buy an HB Tune ( www.hbtune.com/ ) that straps the phone to your left hand. But it has a transparent (but thick) cover making it hard to use the touch screen on the phone.

I've been using a spibelt ( www.spibelt.com ) but it's a bit of a hassle (while running) to unzip, remove, replace, rezip and to rezip in just the right way so that the volume buttons are still readily accessible. And if I have other stuff in the spibelt, I have to be careful that the other stuff doesn't fly out.

I'll continue using the spibelt but not for my phone. Since I pull out the phone a lot during my runs, I'd really like something better.

Anyone love their phone holders?
