Cell phones that are carried inside pouches or holsters are always exactly where they are supposed to be at the exact moment that they are needed. A pouch that clips to a pantsline or loops onto a belt ensures that the phone is always close at hand, never in a mystery location. The same cannot be said of carrying a cell phone around in some type of bag or purse. By the time you actually find your cell phone, the caller has already started leaving you a voice message.
Toting a cell phone around in a pocket used to seem like a pretty good idea, but that was before smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy SIII reached gargantuan proportions. Placing one of these large cell phones inside a pocket is impractical unless you don't mind the phone digging into your leg when you sit down
or, in the case of particularly loose jeans, banging against your leg insistently with every step. Carrying a cell phone around in the pocket of a baggy pair of pants virtually ensures a bruise on your leg by the time you're done with your grocery shopping. A cell phone pouch eliminates the discomfort and inconvenience of these other methods of carrying your phone.
Despite all the advantages of cell phone pouches, they've gotten a little less popular over the past few years, which might make you feel hesitant to carry them in your store. Why aren't they as popular as they used to be? There are two main reasons: Phone cases have become much more popular and pouches did not initially fit smartphones.
It seems that people who used to rely upon their cell phone pouches to protect
their phones have since made the switch over to cell phone and smartphone protective cases. Apparently, people feel that if they have a case, they don't also need a holster or pouch. This view of cell phone pouches is inaccurate; pouches and cases serve very different purposes.
Although people once used pouches as a rudimentary way of protecting their cell phones, they were never really designed to protect the phone. They are best used for the sake of convenient access to the phone as mentioned above. A cell phone pouch might protect a phone against scratches as it floats around inside a purse, but a fabric or leather pouch does not offer much shock absorption if the phone is dropped.

The second reason people started to get out of the pouch habit was that they started upgrading to smartphones that would not fit inside their pouches. Pouches by the hundreds were doubtless stuck at the bottom of sock drawers and forgotten about.
The latest generation of cell phone pouches, however, are designed with smartphones in mind. At MyCoolCell, we carry cell phone pouches for all types of smartphones, from Apple to Blackberry to ZTE.
