Wink Use a strap, keeps phone safer!

I have a strap on my Touch Pro. I had a stroke at 24, I'm 29 now. It affected holding objects in my left hand. So I made a strap and attached through the small hole in the bottom of the battery cover and over the part that holds the strap. Now I can use the camera better and not drop the phone anymore.
I suggest everyone to have a strap on there phone while out and about, like at the beach or someplace where you might drop it in water or off a mountain ridge. You can buy straps at Kmart, Walmart or just Google phone strap or teather strap or make one yourself. I used nylon, a metal button, and 10 test fishing line for the thread. They are cheap at about $5-10 for two premade or about .50 cents made at home. If you use it with a good cover on the phone it could save from having to do a claim or cracking the chrome. I wrote this thread for folks like myself, who have a disability and for everyone else because $5-10 could save you $100-600!

Re: Use a strap, keeps phone safer!

Agreed!

I have a strap in mine from an old digi-cam and it works wonders. I drop my phone too often without it lol.

Was the main reason my wife urged me to buy that super case from Sprint.
