Where do you place your cell phone?

Kind of a dumb question but I'm wondering if anyone has come up with some clever ideas to place their cell phones while driving?
I'm don't like putting it in the cup holder...
I had a passenger and we both had drinks and I found myself putting the cell phone on my lap
I wish there was an extra cubby somewhere...

Inside the cup holder and close the door. I'm left handed and drive with my left hand only, at 12:00 position on the wheel. I rest my right arm on the console with my hand on the automatic shifter, so that whole cup holder placement is useless to me anyway.

It's what I've been doing almost every day but I'd like to have the cup holders available.
This would be cool but the phone would end up covering all of the radio screen

Unrelated but my iPod Classic 160gb stays connect to to the USB connection in the arm rest compartment. I just treat it like a hard drive and control it from my stirring wheel. That wannabe Siri sounding Ford Sync heathen always complains to me about having too much damn music.....lol

Okay, back on subject. What happened to just leaving it on your belt clip or throw it in the backseat. It shouldn't be hard-to-reach it while driving

I'll confess, been known to do that here and there. But also had it exit the car with me a few times.

Mine stays in my briefcase, in the trunk. With sync (bluetooth), it makes it hands free, and I don't worry about it in the car, becoming a potential item to knock me out should I get into some sort of accident. I'm a lot older now, so I need to protect any remaining brain cells I have left that are still operating.

I absolutely go nuts when I see folks driving with one hand, and holding a phone to their ear with the other. Most European countries have it right: driving is driving. No eating, drinking, or hand operated devices are used while driving. Hands free are allowed, and with our technology we have, there is no excuse why those who feel they have to talk on a phone while driving, can't spend a few extra bucks to make it hands free.

Then place the phone in the glove box (does anyone drive with gloves anymore anyway?) or in the center console with the door closed.

I heard that the 2015 Mustangs will not have a door in the center console...oh no, what will we do, what will we do?

You would hate me then. None of my personal or work vehicles have any hands free capabilities. I'm on one of my phones nearly the entire time i'm driving. Just part of life. I do make an effort not to text while driving however.

As far as where they go it's either cupholders or pass seat.

Naw, I don't hate anyone. I just hope you are never involved in an automobile accident caused by the cell phone usage. Especially if it involves an inocent driver or pedestrian.

I concur. Driving commercially has turned me into a defensive driving fool. It's amazing what i notice and even people riding in the same vehicle don't notice. I guess all those classes pay off afterall.

Last year my wife was in her first and only accident. She got caught up in the middle of a chain reaction accident in the morning rush hour. The officer immediately took the cell phones of all drivers and checked their texting history. Something else to think about, they do check.

My phone sits in a small non-skid tray on top of the dash, in the center.

I keep it in the console with the lid shut. If I need to call or play music I can do it over SYNC. I'm with the others on here who put it away or keep it in their pocket. I find that a phone flying across the cabin in the middle of a turn or acceleration is a huge distraction.

95% of the time it's either in my pocket or in the center console with the lid shut. Occasionally I'll put it right between the shifter and the fan & temperature dials.Click image for larger version

Keep in mind it helps to have a phone case that's not plastic. I have an otterbox defender series that has a rubber casing on the outside and it hardly moves at all when I put it there, even on turns.

I put mine in the cup holders or in front of my shifter. When it's charging I usually set it on the dash.

I've got an Otterbox Armor. Idk, maybe I just drive like a crazy person. Lol
