    I recently went on a day long fishing trip and I knew on the boat I would be
    in bright sunlight. I totally prepared for the bright light because if I
    received calls I wanted to be able to see the disply, so I brought a full
    sized black Hefty Bag in my tackle box.

    When I had to make a couple of calls all I did was fully open the bag and
    pulled over my head and shoulders and upper arms while using my phone. The
    darkness was just perfect for seeing the display. I had absolutely no
    problem! Also, the reception actually seemed a little clearer inside the
    bag! I am going to test the reception tomorrow while going to work in the
    city (no silly, I won't be driving, I'll be taking the train).

    A couple of precautions if you are going to try this for yourself. First I
    would not advise children to put plastic bags over their heads because after
    an especially long call even I because a little woozey. Next, make certain
    you are seated and stay seated. Without thinking, I stood once while making
    a point to the caller and I almost fell over the side of the boat with phone
    in hand and the bag over my head. Stay seated.

    Wear a wide brimmed hat. I actually stumbled upon this one. I was wearing
    one anyway because of the hot sun on the boat and it worked really well to
    create a ballooned working space inside the bag.

    Has anyone else used this technique?

    Sounds like a "Kodak moment" to me.
