    I would suggest getting used to a very small cross body bag. Keeps hands free and phone accessible. I just live with my phone in my purse which is on another floor of the house. Husband knows to call the landline number and leave a message if necessary. I do not like any phones.

    I don’t like cross body bags, I’ve tried them. When I must go out in public carrying money and etc. I put my phone into a large wallet thingie with a zipper. I hold it in my armpit. I have hands-free.

    How is it you don't have pockets? One of the true necessities of life.

    Most people who say they hate their phones are Luddites in my experience.

    Well, I’m a Luddite with my phone because I don’t use it that often. I love it for GPS but because the screen is so small I don’t like it for anything else. And I’m used to the size of an iPad mini screen

    Count me as a Luddite. Cell phones have their place within limits. The NYT has had recent features on groups of rebel young people who were going back to flip phones and real cameras.

    I’m with IL. I have few pants with pockets and also find it uncomfortable to have a phone in the pocket. When I do need to carry a phone I usually wear a vest that has pockets. I ALSO prefer to do many things on my iPad because of size and ease of use. I hate being tethered to a phone and many times even forget to bring it with me. It is not imperative, IMO, to constantly be available as when I was working and was REQUIRED to always have the phone on and respond.
