Do you use a cell phone holster?

It was pointed out to me recently that the citizens of the U.S. are just about the only people on the planet that carry their cell phones in holsters. After a moment’s reflection I realized this was pretty accurate: in all my travels through Scandinavia, and Western and Eastern Europe over the last couple of years, I don’t think I saw a single cell phone carried anywhere other than in a pocket or purse. I’d like to think this American idiosyncrasy is a throw-back to the days of the Wild West, where a man would make it with a little grit and a gun in his holster. Everyone I’ve spoken to, though, suggests it’s a status symbol: “Look at the phone I’ve got!”

So, dear reader, sound off!
