Keep it in shirt pocket if wearing a pocketed shirt or left front pants pocket if wearing pants, which is seldom the case.

Usually sits on my desk at work, or in my tray with keys and wallet at home.

Sits in cupholder in console of car while mobile

I center back pocket of jersey while riding.

Once, while in a hurry to get on the boat and out on the race course, I tossed my cell phone into the cabin of a j-22, or so I thought. As soon as we cleared the dock, it was down wind to the course, so we rapidly rigged the spinnaker and hoisted it. It was a beautiful hoist and set. The furled sail shot to the head of the mast and as the wind caught it, it inflated and filled perfectly. It also launched my cell phone from where it was tangled in the spinnaker, in a beautiful trajectory into Galveston Bay.

For you see, in my hurry to get on the boat, I had tossed my cell phone into the spinnaker bag that was already hangning in the companionway.

DOH!

No wonder I keep getting calls from a Davey Jones...

I'm surprised to see no votes for belt clip. Around here you see it all the time, replete with Bowie knife, leatherman, radio, bear spray, shark repellent, etc.

At home: either on a block of wood on the desk being charged, on the dual-iPhone charger on the counter, or on the arm of the couch as I watch TV.

At work: on a binder-clip iPhone stand on the desk.

In the car: either in the door pocket, in a cup holder, or in my pants pocket.

Everywhere else it's usually in my pants pocket.

That's only good until you forget you left a cup of wine in your cupholder, and drop the phone into that instead.

Sitting on my desk. At work it sits there or in a belt holder. If I'm not at work I carry it in a slip case in my pocket or in a baggie in my jersey pocket.

I usually carry it clipped to my bag or in a holster clipped to my front right pocket. BB Bold is too big to comfortably fit into a pocket.

When I'm driving it goes into the cup holder.

Swallowed by the couch with about $15 dollars of change, a couple of pens, and more dog hair than I'd like to admit.

I should have capitalized "The Couch." He was over here the other night working on his geek show act that he wants to take on the road.

So if he swallows the writing instruments and then your phone and then dials your phone and we can listen to a prerecorded story you left on your voice mail, you could call the act Penn and Teller.
