Recently I took a trip to Sydney and I had the forethought to load my HTC Desire with a few episodes of Top Gear. Whilst in the air, I started watching and found myself thinking 'hmmm I need a stand so I don't have to hold this stupid phone'.
Whilst sadly my genius didn't bring me any brilliant ideas at the time, a quick google when I got home found an excellent solution to my problem, and best of all, it's free!
Essentially, just take one plastic card, such as an old hotel or security swipe card, and bend it in two spots to create your own phone holder that other companies would charge you exorbitant amounts for!
The first bend should be slightly off centre, and then the second bend should be about 1 centimetre deep or enough to hold your phone. Here are the results:
