Make sure your cell phone doesn't compromise your safety

We use holsters with a hood that rotates forward. I pushed my cell phone back on my belt one day so it was right up against of my holster. When I got home and tried to take my weapon out of the holster, I discovered that the cell phone prevented the holster hood from rotating forward and I couldn’t take my weapon out.

Now I'm very careful where the phone is — to the point where I simply leave it in the car.
