Has anyone found a hole for a wrist strap on the G300? I'm finding it heavier and more slippery than my last phone so a short strap would be useful (if terribly uncool).

I'm surprised not to see one, as I have seen quite a few people with mobile charms on other phones (to use a stereotype, its mainly Asian females)

If the G300 doesn't have one, it must be the first phone ever to omit it!

Thanks.

Thanks Michal. Thought there wasn't one, but I needed someone else to tell me in case my eyes were being weird :D

some have them hidden behind the back cover, take a look in there.

Even if there's a hole behind the back cover, there will need to be a hole in the back cover or somewhere else on the case too, though?

Nope, can't see any.

Seriously, must be the only phone made in China without one of those holes!

What do you mean! Have to say yes and many have Miss Kitty stuff.

;-)

They still look better than most of the English girls though!

Also I'm glad there is no lanyard hole as I don't use them and have to clean the fluff out of the damn things.

Lol. I guess you havent read the Intel San Diego forums then with its hidden sd card slot behind its user non removable rear cover, or mobile dongles with their slot for an aerial which is hidden away and the device has to be taken apart to see it.

Some phones have a little hook under the battery cover for a lanyard, so it's not visible. Sadly I can't find anything of the sort on the G300, which is bad because I'm constantly paranoid of dropping mine, and I hate cases (plus they're hard to find here).

There are loads of cases on the web (http://goo.gl/73y9Q). But I think £5 is a bit steep. Yes it'll be worth it if it saves your phone from smashing, but I've found that for most phones they're around £2.
