    Anyone found an armband that works with the Lumia 900 and the very offset 3.5 jack?

    Not that this is an answer to your question, but, I've been running with Bluetooth headphones for the past couple of years and recommend them to anyone who is active with their phones. No wires to get in the way and no concern about poorly made cases.
    On that same note, I'm ordering this one today with hopes of it fitting well:
    Amazon.com: Elegant OEM VG Brand (BLACK) Armband with Sweat Resistant Lining and Unique Key Pocket for Nokia Lumia 900 or Lumia 910 Windows Smart Phone + Live * Laugh * Love VanGoddy Wrist Band!!!: Cell Phones & Accessories

    Thanks for posting those links. :)

    I am also looking for the same type of item to use at the gym.

    I would like to hear how you like these items once they arrive and you try them.

    Those ones appear to have a plastic covering over the screen. Does anyone know of any that keep the screen exposed?

    I bought this one:
    Amazon.com: Philips DLV1004/17 Action Fit Sport Sleeve for MP3 & Mobile Phone, Black (S/M): Cell Phones & Accessories

    It doesn't expose the screen, but for what I do (run, walk the dog), its a non issue. I also like that it doesn't require any velcro to hold in place. Its spandex so it stretches around your arm. Just make sure you get one size under what your arm is. I ordered a L with my biceps at 8in. It would constantly slip down my arm.

    Funny how that's a picture of an iPhone's screen.

    I bought one for my 4S and it was too small for my arms. I've thought about putting it on my forearms instead... not sure yet.

    Not sure, I've only tried the one, but I noticed at the gym... those with big arms don't use them.
