Default Phones getting too big, where to carry it?

Older flip phones easy to fit in pocket but these newer Droid phones have huge screens hence a large size.

Looking to get a phone but size seems to be a factor now.

How do you easily carry it with you all time? Would be like a poptart package jammed in your pocket!

I totally agree. I saw my friends Captivate, and it was the biggest thing in the world. He said it wasn't that big of a deal though, that carrying it in his pocket, was easy, so IDK. But yea, they are huge.

It only bothers me if it is thick. If it's thin it doesn't really stick out of your pocket and doesn't really get in the way. But thick ones bulge and are often uncomfortable.

I agree with this a thin large phone is fine its when you get a thick phone. Even if its a small thick phone its uncomfortable to have in your pocket.

I know when I got my Desire I thought this is a bit large but it slips into a pocket just fine.

I always have to remember that Pants = Trousers. As sometimes I just see the word pants and ROFL thinking of Boxers or even worse Y Fronts

No, since it's t/g, t/tn is implied.

Huge? I wouldn't really call it huge. I have the Vibrant which is the T mobile version of the same phone and it isn't all that big plus I think it is about the thinnest phone I've seen. It fits easily into my jeans pocket.

You guys wear like gangsta baggy jeans hangin' way down or normal jeans when you say 'fits easily in my pocket'?

I'm 43 I don't wear those gay ass "gangster" pants. I wear normal straight leg (no relaxed fit as they make people look like they crapped their pants) or boot cut jeans from Levis, Wrangler or even lowly Rustler.
I had a problem getting my Tracfone Razr knockoff phone in and out of my pocket when I was fatter. Now that I dropped some weight I can get my phone plus other things into the same pocket just fine.

If you ever see me wearing pants like in that pic above then call the mental hospital on me or better yet just shoot me.
