I'm looking for an alternate way to carry a smartphone other than my purse. Women's clothes often don't have deep pockets (if any) so that doesn't work. Also, in noisy places I often don't hear the phone ring despite having an ultraloud and unusual ringtone.

If you carry your cell phone in a pocket that holds it against you body and the phone is set to vibrate you should feel it when it rings.

From a male's perspective:

1) The "napoleon pocket" in the 5.11 Tactical Shirt works well for carrying/accessing a cellphone.

The "Taclite" material seems to be all-but impervious to wear. http://www.511tactical.com/taclite-pro-long-sleeve-shirt-126497.html http://www.511tactical.com/womens-taclite-pro-long-sleeve-shirt.html

The all-cotton shirts are good but are more subject to wear. http://kk.org/cooltools/archives/358 http://www.511tactical.com/511-tactical-shirt-long-sleeve-cotton-115916.html

Get on the emailing list for http://www.511tactical.com and http://www.lapolicegear.com as these shirts will occasionally go on sale.

2) ScottVest's "Performance T-Shirt" has a nearly-underarm "chest pocket" that is excellent for a cellphone but I'm not sure the fit would be suitable for a female. http://www.scottevest.com/v3_store/SeV_Tshirt.shtml

3) Royal Robbins makes woman's shirts with a "Secured document pocket" that might be suitable. http://www.royalrobbins.com/p-1220-lt-expedition-long-sleeve.aspx?category=womens-styles&subcategory=long-sleeve-shirts

4) I understand that this is an eccentric suggestion but I wonder if there might be a woman's concelled handgun product that might work well for a cellphone, eg. http://www.gunsamerica.com/blog/concealed-carry-products-for-women-the-well-armed-woman/, http://www.thewellarmedwoman.com/store
