Some people will spend 10 or even 20 dollars on a desktop holder for their phone, but at times like these, a more economical solution comes to mind...the 79 cent cellphone station!
1. Get a 3"x7" tie-plate (95c at amazon, as low as 59c elsewhere).
2. Bend the plate at the 1st, middle and 5th hole-line, as seen in the pictures.
3. Place your phone or PDA on your new holder.
4. Optional: Spray paint your holder colorfully!
