Honestly not joking. I have been doing that for years (started back when people didn't try to scalp you for expensive bags for your phone.)
they have everything i want:
cheap (if it gets worn, i can afford to toss it)
full visibility (i can see if water gets in, unlike ones with non-transparent parts, that can hide water that might have gotten inside)
positive sealing confirmation (yellow and blue make green!)
Now, if you need a lanyard... then maybe a sandwich bag is not for you.. unless you want to duct tape some string on it.... but for running, and biking and such i don't want my phoone slapping around.
if you want something to keep it handy without using pockets, get an armband, and put the phone in the baggie, and then in the armband. secure, and cheap as heck.
lets cost it out:
a cheap armband (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&highlight=arm
) : $3.50
a single ziplock (gotta be a sealing one, not one of the fold the flap ones...) $.06 (i rounded up)
Signatures are for losers.
