    Red face Strap for iPhone?
    It always seemed strange to me that the iPhone didn't have that little hole to put a strap through like other cell phones.
    It seems like it would be easy enough to add but I guess Apple didn't think it was necessary?

    Is there anyway to actually use a strap with an iPhone 3G?
    I know that you can put one on a case but I was looking for a case that stays on the iPhone while you use it and I haven't really seen any. I've only seen pouches with straps that you have to take the phone out of.
    I think I saw one but it was in China and I've had bad experiences buying things from China (never received items the few times I ordered from there).... does anyone know of a decent case with a strap that isn't too bulky and actually looks nice?

    I know that is a lot to ask for LOL but one can always hope!

    Not sure, I've searched also.
    You def need to get a screen protector for sure. I use an anti glare and love it. Tried them all. As far as cases, I use an Incase slider and it's worked out the best for me, there are a million different kinds. There are also a buch of reviews here on cases if you do a search. Also search You Tube on Case reviews.

    OHHHH I forgot about YouTube reviews! cool!

    You know on eBay someone sells straps for iPhone 3G.
    (just plain old regular cell phone straps)
    and I keep wondering where the heck these sellers expect you
    to put this strap on since there is no hole for it on the iPhone.
    But these auctions specifically name the iPhone 3G in the title.

    Very cool, but not sure how I feel about this attaching to the dock plug, I'd be scared it would screw it up with a tug. But tanks kiddo.

    I missed that strap in my searches! Seems
    Very cool but I don't think I'd feel comfortable
    with the way that attached to iPhone 
    It seems so UN-secure but thanx for the link!
    I always love seeing new stuff!

    Well, I thought about it and I went ahead and ordered it this morning. I will give you a review when I receive it. I watched the video and they were spinning it around, it may be safe. Otherwise, I'm out about $20.00 and add it to the massive collection of iPhone stuff here in my drawer. lol

    You're Awesome! You definitely have to let me know how it is!
    Did they say how long till you get it?
    Oohhh I'm so excited I can't wait!
    Thank you! Thank you!

    Which one did you get? The wrist one or the neck one? Or do they come together?

    You get both of them for like $18.50 ish. What I liked is it has a 30 day no questions asked money back guarantee, (but you know how that goes).
    Not sure where they are shipped from but I would guess by the end of the week. I'm so jazzed, it could be cool.

    cool, you definitely have to give a review.
    I was also checking something out at this site called:
    case-mate.com

    They have this cool battery charger type thingy that I am actually thinking about buying and just attaching a lanyard strap to the clip on the back but I'm not sure yet.
    They have a video too
    You can check it out here: Case-Mate iPhone 3G Fuel - Rechargeable Battery Pack (Case-Mate IFUEL-BLK), Apple 3G iPhone Cases, Holsters, Skins, and Accessories in Premium Leather

    I've looked at them. Thing's I didn't like...
    Kinda bulky
    Kinda pricey (but that's never stopped me lol)
    Belt clip is not removable
    iPhone only faces out
    Plus side is the xtra battery time
    But that's just me

    what about a lanyard style pouch? I have one that I put my phone in that is water proof. It fits in it with the morpheus air case on it. It works a little bulky for everyday use. What I did like about it is that I could still use the phone while it was inside it.

    I was thinking of trying one of those regular cases but has the clip on the back and just attaching a neck strap or a wrist strap to the clip. Some of those clips are really good so I'm sure you could attach a fairly secure.

    It's funny that your quote is from "Jackie Mason" because that is my father's best friend (they've been best friends for like 40 years). I never found him to be very funny until I read your signature LOL!

    Well, I received my Danglet Yesterday, and I can't really say I'm impressed. My expectations were not very high when I ordered it and not sure that I will actually use it. I've got it on my phone today and we'll see how it works out. Already got laughed at by some employees. (Don't they know who issues payroll checks? Silly boys)

    I was searching around and I found this Liz Claiborne case. A bit much for me. Can't find any other colors or styles. Thought you might want to check it out anyway.

    They laughed at you! Shame on them! LOL!
    Seriously though, thanks for letting me know what you think. It is a bit scary to hang something from that port like that. I like that Liz Claiborne case though!
    Nice find!
    I'm good try out my new clip case I bought. See if I can hang a strap on it. I'll let you know how it goes.
