I gave $30 for my stereo headphones. They have a built-in mic, and when I get a call, they beep. I just tap the earphone, it pauses the music, and I can take the call. Go to Buy.com and search for "Bluetooth stereo headphones." They start under $20.

@HalfPintRoo, I just bought my son`s an iPhone 4 each. They were only $0.97 each at Wal-mart. My wife and I use iPhone 4s`. I prefer the glass back over the crap aluminum. Plus they are light but not too light. I prefer 4`s over 5`s.

Basically what I was going to say, it`s a convenience thing even if it does seem odd. Can`t tell you how many times I`ve tried to push the button on my phone while holding it upside down after getting it from my pocket. Not a good reason to upgrade though haha!

You could always get a cheaper version and poke a hole in it?

I have an Android phone, and I always put in in my pocket upside down. It`s right side up when you pull it out, and there`s room on the bottom to grab it without putting a thumbprint on the screen.

And why would anyone put any phone in their pocket with a cord attached. That kinda defeats the concept of "wireless," does it not? I have a small Bluetooth headset for hands-free calling, and I have a set of Bluetooth stereo headphones so I can use my phone as an MP3 player, and still be able to take a call hands-free.

My current iphone (4) has the headphone jack on top, not the bottom. Or am I missing something.

And how many of you apple fan boys are saying "OMG iPhone 4??? That`s soooooo old"

Are you sure they aren`t talking about the direction the screen is facing versus which end it up or down in a pocket? Look at the picture a little closer it looks more like the phone has to be pulled from the packet backwards or something given the screen side facing the palm in the picture.

Either way if you feel like over paying for products go with apple because none of the hardware they offer justifies the price payed for it.

I`ve always put my phone in my pockets upside down, then when I pull it out (fnar) it`s the right way up.

Yet now I have expensive gym armbands with the earphone socket at the top, meaning I put the iphone in upside down and it f*cks the calibration up. Unhappiness.

Seriously! THat`s the way it SHOULD be. The cord isnt hanging in front of the screen when it`s in your hand and when you pull it out of your pocket, BOOM...ready to go. WTF?

I`ve put every phone I`ve ever owned in my pocket upside down. Think about the movements from hand, to phone, to ear. It makes more sense to have the headphones on the bottom.

It`s ergonomic, just took apple a while to figure it out.
