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?

LOL!

I applaud your creativity, but the conjured image is circa America's
Funniest Videos.
"Mommy why does Daddy have a garbage bag over his head? Shhhhhh, darling,
he's conducting tax deductible business.".

I did see a coyote on TV yesterday with his head stuck in a large glass
bottle, maybe he had been trying to make a call.

Jimmy, you made my day!

That is absolutely hilarious. I can just picture someone on a train talking
on a cell phone with a garbage bag over his head.

It's wise to make sure you use a hefty bag with built in draw strings. That
way if you want to have a private conversation, you can just pull the
strings and the bag will fit snugly around your neck. Trust me, the other
folks on the train will appreciate your thoughtfulness. They may even
volunteer to assist.
