A window mount for your WM phone is the easiest way to mount your phone in any car... especially if you are like me and have to move it a lot with rental cars for work. But if you are like me, you have found that not all window mounts are created equal. At around an average of $15 - $30 a pop, it can get very expensive to find that perfect mount that will not lose its suction and fall off your windshield, that does not have a support arm that annoyingly constantly pushes the buttons on the side of your phone, or to find out that it is made so poorly that it breaks in the first 3 weeks.
