Smile How to: Cell Phone Mount?

Hi Stromers.
I'm new to this forum and I'm so happy that I finally found this place.
I just got fancy new cell phone (AT&T Tilt) with GPS, XM Radio...
Works awesome in my car.
I need help with mounting damn thing on my 2007 DL650 without falling off.
Any help is appreciated.
Thanks.

Get a ram mount and a aquabox. You can view them at www.ram-mount.com and purchase them from quite a few vendors. I've been impressed with the tilt so far (not counting the red light of death one of them got).

I've been a fan for Ram Mounts for a while now, but this was the first time I'd heard of the aquabox. It looks interesting - do you use one? I can't find much feedback on them.

I've seen a few and they are very nice. I like the new ones with the flexible front so you can operate devices through them. They are new this year so not alot of reviews on them out yet. Ram makes quality stuff though. The otterboxes greywolf linked to are also nice, though I don't know if you can use stuff through them.

I had a 3600 for an IQue. It had a waterproof stylus write through screen and a hard cover over it.
