I used to use an armband, but developed these stupid tan lines on my arm...I can deal with the phone in my pocket now, but it took a little to get used to. Haha, here in Finland that's usually not a problem. Most of the time it's cold and gloomy (though right now the weather is pretty good). Personally I have never got around to get an armband though. Only went for a short 2 mile run today. Need to step my game up.
