This sounds a bit stupid but here goes.

I'm looking foward to go play paintball soon and I was wondering how can I bring my cellphone without breaking it from a paintball shot? I don't feel comfortable putting it in a locker with my gear bag. It's a Samsung Ace ii x with a rubberish case.

I take mine every time I go. Although mine has a shock and water proof case on it, I would just put it in your pocket and keep the screen faced towards you, so the screen won't crack if you get hit.
This is exactly what marketing guns has come down too. a dick waving contest. You can say all the stuff you want but until you whip it out wave it around and prove it to the world everyone will doubt you. -bigx

I don't bring it, just because I have a feeling it would fly out of my pocket when I slide into a bunker. lol

I make some field friends first and then lock it in my bag. That or I ask the guy at the registration booth to hold onto it.

I have zippered pockets but I normally leave it in the car.

I wear basketball shorts under my pants, and I put it in the pockets of those pants. That's only if I'm expecting a call. Otherwise, I leave it in the large locked box I keep my stuff in. If I can trust it to hold my paintball stuff, which is worth more than my phone, then my phone will be just fine in there. Out of sight in your car is another good place as well.

I used to keep my phone on me until I was shot about an inch away from my phone no it sits in the trunk.

Put it in a locker or in a car, or with someone you trust. I never feel comfortable with it with me on the field.

I usually take mine on the field. But when I do I use the most durable case I got. And make sure the screen is facing towards you, so on the unlikely even it does hit your phone it'll be fine.

I've played Airball for upwards of a year or so and I bring my phone out every weekend. Nothing's ever happened. It's pretty much a non-issue.
