    I know it may seem impossible, but is there any way to attach a phone strap to the iPhone? I don't want to use a case to make the phone look any fatter than it is already !!

    I've always used straps with phones because they look pretty and pratically, also provide something to hold onto in case the phone "slips" and it's easier to grab if you happen to go through your bag looking for it.

    I can't see why Apple wouldn't include this in their next hardware update of the iPhone.
    Hypothetically, Apple made phonestraps could provide a huge revenue stream to their accessories lineup. Anyways,

    Is there a way?
    What do you guys think ?
    Do you guys wanna attach a strap?

    I've taken a pic just as a mockup below!

    This request would require a drill, I'm afraid.

    FAT as in Width, given it has a huge screen.
    I do like how slim it is though compared to other smartphones !

    Yea, I have a good camera phone already so I initially wanted a Touch. But lacking the speakerphone would make media sharing with friends impossible so I went for the phone.

    There's no debating slimmer is always better. My OG 5GB iPod is a PIG compared to the iPhone.

    ok guys back on topic. I was also searching for a lanyard a couple of weeks back and found this thread. The guy had the guts to drill a hole into the iPhone so he could have lanyard (funny how the thread starts and then ends lol...). I thought about doing this myself but I don't think I can open the phone itself, looks to difficult. I ended up buying this lanyard from iSkin.com. Used it for a day only since it is too long for what I need it for.

    Thanks !
    Oh, the iskin lanyard is nice, but having to detach it everytime I connect to something and finding a place for the lanyard to chill seems clumsy. So the drilling that guy did is perfect. It looks so professional! I wish I knew someone who drilled holes...haha

    We would all LOVE photos (video, I pray...) of this process.

    For some reason, I've got a very bad feeling about this...like before someone tries to jump the Grand Canyon.

    Well I stepped up and opened the antenna cover and attached a lanyard I had on my Dash to a screw right by the speaker. It feels secure enough for me. Here is some pictures.
