Cell Phones

So, most of us have cell phones. How do you guys keep your cell phones? In your pocket or in a case or what?

If you keep it in a case, we'd love to see pics!

Oh, and what setting do you keep it on (vibrate, silent, loud, ect)

I keep mine in a case! I'll get pics as soon as I can. Uh, technical difficulties at the moment! I always have it on vibrate

Edit: added the setting thing...

I have my cellphone on me all the time at the barn.
I got one of those fixaphones from smartpak.

Here's a pic of me with it on


I got the pink one because it's highly visible

^That's pretty cool.
If I'm wearing jeans, usually it's in my pocket. Never falls out. Mine's a KRZR.
If I'm wearing my breeches then it's in that pocket as well, since they have zippers. :)

Ride more, worry less.

I don't keep my cell on me while I'm at the barn... I should, but I don't. That is a very good idea Appy!! If you ever had an accident (*touches wood*) you could call someone.

yep!
I mainly got one because it's not a big barn where I board and most times, i'm the only one up there (the Barn owner is in her house) but like you said Allie, if anything happens, i'll be able to call someone.

I keep mine in my pocket in case we have any (more) emergencies! Hopefully not for a long, long time!

I don't have a land line (cept at work) and my cell phone is always on me. I ride with it in my front packet and Put it on loud. My horse doesnt mind and it is good for her to used to weird noises.
