Stupidest Accessories

What are some accessories that you think are just kind of lame?

I've never liked the whole belt clip thing. To me, when someone has a cell phone, PDA, and various other electronic divices clipped all around their belt, they look a little too much like they're trying to play intergalatic cowboy.

Hehe I agree! If the phone is the only thing on the belt clip it's fine (though at least with women phones look better in a purse) but anything more than just a phone and it's simply tacky.

I don't think there's anything wrong with a beltclip from a fashion standpoint, but I don't necessarely trust it to keep my phone safe.
In terms of stupid accessories, the batteries with little lights built in are pretty stupid.

Faceplates. Call me hopelessly old-fashioned, but the whole idea of phones as a fashion accessory just boggles my mind. But then, I guess if you're going to wear your cell in your belt clip, you want it to coordinate with your outfit, right?

I love the new faceplates that have lights on them... seriously, it looks like you've got a billboard clipped to your belt!

fashion sense... not!

I dont like the little lights that you can put on top of your antena. I have never had one but I just dont like them because It makes me think people want us to look at them because they have a cell phone.

I don't have a problem with belt clips. Don't have the need to use them myself. But alot of people find them very useful and convenient. Especially if they are a busy or on the go type of person, if that makes any sense. But the stupidest accessory in my opinion would be those little dangly things that girls like to put on their antennas. There's something else I'm thinking of but I can't really remember it anymore, lol.

I'd have to chime in against belt clips!

Not only do they look a little stupid, have you ever noticed the person wearing it is always reaching around to feel if the phone is still there?

Cell phone charms. I actually almost bought one at the dollar store the other day. They're *evil* I tell you, EVIL. If they can almost suck me into paying a buck for some little thing to dangle from my cellphone they ARE evil.

lol, stupid accessories I can think of. Well I wouldn't pay for those headsets for your phone that let you hear it in your ear and answer it when it rings. That's a complete waste of money, especially when there is something called 'vibrate' on your phone.
