Andy, I knew you were looking at my butt when I walked off.
Currently, I'm using my old 7130 OEM case to tote my 8300. It works well enough although the magnets do not engage the carry mode. The local Att/Cing store doesn't have anything to fit it as of yet. They are even out of the 8800 cases - which I'd happily use until Seido releases theirs.
Ah well, still love the phone.
For referece, Andy, I was wrong about the price. It was $174.99 when I looked at the sheet in the box. The online list showed $199.99 as the price. The lesser price has been confirmed by my bank, so I'm pleased.
