Most users of Japanese cell phones (keitai’s), have a strap on their phone. I think the original idea was so you could hold the strap in case you dropped the phone, or have a longer strap that might go round your neck. Nowadays, it seems like the keitai strap is more of a fashion item than any practical use.
When I first got my iPhone the main thing I missed was the place to put my keitai strap. Now I have bought a soft plastic case which allows me to put a strap on as well. My strap is an “ABC Store” Bear from Hawaii, a good reminder of my favorite place to vacation.
Do you have a strap on your keitai? What’s your favorite? Does it remind you of something or somewhere you went?
