I have an old clam shell type phone that tends to be smaller and easier to fit in my zippered pocket in my jacket,vest or breeches. I have occasionally stuffed it on the outside of my half chaps. Thankfully, I have never broke it.

I generally suffer the same problem with Saskia, I very seldom have a signal in the areas where I ride. Though I still take my phone with me whenever I'm riding a colt and I carry it in my shirt pocket. I wear men's western shirts so I've always got the pocket over my left boob and that's where my phone stays.

I carry mine in a small camera case in my back pocket. I hook the string to the case through my belt loop in case it comes out of my pocket.

That is actually a good idea. THe camera case I use has a belt loop thing and a hook. So I could do both things just in case. Hmm only probably is that I wear riding tights and they don't have belt loops, welp guess I have to go buy some new riding pants OH darn!

I usually just stick mine in the pocket of my breeches. Or if I'm wearing a jacket it goes in the inside pocket.

I put it in the side of my boot :)

That's where I carry mine when my husband and I are out on our motorcycle. And, when we're doing fun runs/poker runs. I keep the folded map there.. I call it my "map holder"

I've been keeping my phone in my saddle bags, obviously I wasn't thinking about what would happen if I were thrown! Guess it'll start going in my "map holder"

Depending on what I am wearing, my cell phone either ends up in my breeches pocket, my coat pocket or my saddle bag. I NEVER ride alone though (I don't have a trailer) so IF I was to fall off and my horse to run off, my friend always has her phone too. I used to keep in my bra when I had a small phone, but now I have a Droid and it doesn't fit right...

Funnily enough, I get better reception in the woods where I ride than at my house half the time.

Oh, and I don't have it when I am riding in the arena. I leave it in the house unless nobody is home. I don't want people bugging me while I'm riding and I'm too much of a phone addict... However, Gypsy is at my house and I always tell somebody when I am going to ride (more to make sure nobody is going to let the dog out loose while I'm riding than anything though).

I used to carry mine in my front pocket until I came off one time and fractured the screen. Now I carry my iphone in a hard case attached to my belt and towards the front. If I come off, there is little chance that it will get damaged (I hope).

I would rather take the chance that it will break then have a problem miles from the trail head where it's possible not to be found for a long time - or a long walk back to the trailer. I think it's useless to have it attached to my saddle. I trust my horse but you just never know.
