Cell phone lanyards are one of the greatest things of all time! Well, that could be a bit of an overstatement, but using one has certainly made my life a whole lot easier.
I work in construction, so I am constantly working outdoors and with my hands. I need to have my cell phone on me at all times though, since I have small children in day care. Using a lanyard has made it easier for my phone to be easily accessible without having to worry about it getting damaged or lost. I just keep it in my pocket, and do not take it out unless I hear it ring.
I have gone through multiple lanyards trying to find the one that will work easiest for my lifestyle. As the article mentions, the cell phone lanyards that detach easily give you the security that you want without making it hard to get your phone out of your pocket.
I would recommend cell phone lanyards to just about any one. I have even given them as gifts on many occasions.
