Anyone have a source for a 7100i holster with a swivel clip?

I have no idea what RIM was thinking with the case that ships with the 7100i. Don't they test them? Mine is nearly impossible to clip onto all but the thinnest belt.

The stock case sucks. Nextel is actually selling a leather version with a swivel belt clip, or so the description claims....

Remember, with any case/holster you get, that it's made for Blackberrys. That way it'll have the little magnet it in to shutoff the screen and set the profile to vibrate.

The RAC5530 DOES NOT have a swivel belt clip - despite what the Nextel web site says. I ordered two when I got my 7100i's and can confirm it has the same style clip as the the nylon case that came with the unit.

T-Mobile sells a leather case w/ a clear plastic cover for their 7100t. I looks like it also has a swivel clip. You might want to check them out to see if it will fit the 7100i. There's two holes up top so the antenna of the 7100i should fit.

If someone w/ a 7100i could check the T-Mobile case out and report back to us, that would be great! I don't have my 7100i yet :(

I really like this one...Looks nice, has the magnet, protects well, and has a swivel clip. It's for the 7100t but I'm guessing it will fit the 7100i. I use it with a 7100t with an extended battery even, and it fits nicely.

the tmobile one has a magnet where and why would it?

The magnet puts the handheld to "sleep" when in the holster to conserve battery life. Basically it turns the screen off. It also, is what tells the BB that it is "in holster" for your in holster vs. out of holster profile settings.

Maybe it's a new one. The one I saw at the tmobile store today was the leather one with a plastic screen and keypad protector and had the round tab on the back of it that snaps into the separate plastic belt clip. I had that one for a while with my 7100t. I finally cut off the round tab and used just the leather case with the oem case for a while. The plastic belt clip makes it stick out too far and I was always catching it on stuff.

I looked at the fratte one? The one being advertised in the hardware section, will probably go with the vertical case with the magnetic strap. Also found a site that offers a plastic clip for the 7100i, I ordered 2 of them and am awaiting arrival. Will let you guys know if they are any good.

Hopefully someone puts out the same nylon or leather case that Nextel sells, but iwth the standard rotating plastic clip off any other Nextel phone. I really like the holster style (WITHOUT FLAP!!), but a rotating clip is really a must!

I purchased the leather holster from Nextel's site because they say it's a swivel, but it's not.

Below is my first response from Nextel about this.

Comments: The description on the website said it was a swivel holster, but the one I received is not. I was on the phone for almost an hour, but got put on hold and left there. Part number online was RAC-5530 and the part number on the box is the same, but it doesn't swivel. This is for a 7100i. I am not happy about the misleading description or about being on hold for so long with no resolution.

I questioned Sena about the likelyhood of having a case for the 7100i. I had one for my Ipaq 4350 and loved it. www.senacases.com. No I don't work for them, but I had one and liked it. They offer the swivel clip and they are quality cases.

Here is their reply.

Thank you for your interest in Sena Cases. The blackberry 7100i case is in the design phase and will be offered on a introductory promotion in November 2005. I shall send you an e-mail when the introduction is about to occur. Look forward to serving you soon!

That does look like a nice case (and looks like it will work for any 7100), but the clip looks just like the one on the BlackBerry OEM versions.

My standard fabric one was wearing out at the clip location from trying to consistently "clip" to my pants (usually just the belt as it wouldn't go over both...meaning I could never feel it vibrate against my hip).

I replaced it with the OEM leather holster about a month ago...it is already wearing out.

Now, it should be noted that I actually do NOT wear my BlackBerry very much...it sits on my desk most of the day (thanks again for no desktop holder, RIM). and I shove it under my leg while I'm driving so I can feel it vibrate (I listen to my stereo way too loud).

RIM can talk all they want about designing the 7100 for more non-business users, but that is simply not what is going to happen in the real world.....

Sincerely yours,

Someone who can't wait for the 8700c to come out so I can go back to the good old days of a BlackBerry with a kick ass plastic swivel holster that vibrates well and all the features of a 7100 with a full keyboard.

Ok, that's the one I thoughtit might be, and it uses a flap to cover the device, and I'm not willing to sacrifice having to use a flap for a rotating clip. It would just annoy me way too much.

Okay...I'll take your word on the swivel....but the clip looks exactly the same as the standard OEM BlackBerry 7100 cases which STILL do not clip on as well as the old plastic holsters.

I have this case off of eBay. Just got it in the mail today and so far I love it! The 7100i fits into it perfectly. With the screen facing away from the body or towards the body, the magnet puts the unit to sleep either way.

The clip does swivel, although it is only 180 degrees of swivel.....not a full 360. But that shouldn't be an issue for me. How often do I want to carry it upside down anyway?!? By the way, the swivel mechanism is inside the leather. You can't tell by looking at it that it indeed does swivel. This also makes the case much slimmer than most.

And the magnetic flap is a nice feature. I often carry my glock....ummm blackberry while on my motorcycle and the flap is a nice feature while I am speeding into the wind. I can highly recommend this case.....even at the $21.00 price.

It takes a little getting used to, but it does move around unlike the one that comes with the BB, so its not pressed extermely tight against you. Actually I couldnt even use the OEM due to it not even going on to my belt cause the clip was too tight.

It isn't nearly as tight as the OEM case from Blackberry. Of course, my mother in law's heart isn't as tight as that darn blackberry case clip!

The plastic case from my 7510 was the easiest because I could pinch it at the top of the clip to open it up. This case doesn't have that feature. But it does slip on to my belt with relative ease. And I have a pretty thick belt becuase I carry.......ummm....another accessory besides my blackberry on a daily basis. I have no problem attaching this case to my belt. Or, for that matter, removing the BB easily when it rings. Reholstering will take some practice since the case tends to close itself so I have to reach down, open it back up and then slide the blackberry home.

For the person who asked if the swivel locks in place, yes it does. I often wear it locked at horizontal.

Man... Why is it that they create this great new form factor and it's been out for over a year and seems that nobody has made a good replacement for the plastic OEM holster on the old styles that I have come to enjoy the ease and simplicity of use.. "clip it on.. turn it.. don't turn it.. slide it around on your belt between loops..."

Dear [Bookbinder],

Plans previously made to release this case have been pushed back due to licensing agreements with the device maker. I will keep your name on our list of interested customers that I will send an e-mail when the case is announced for PRE Order.

It even has what seems to be a pretty decent, soft leather. All in all I am very happy with the case. Of course, carying the 7100i up my left nostril would have been an improvement on the pathetic case which originally came with the unit!

The seller on eBay is uniquemobile2 (and no, I'm not him trying to drum up business). Search for items by this seller, or just do a search for Blackberry 7100i case and look for uniquemobile2. Good stuff.

Well I've been looking for awhile. I even bought that piece of crap from Nextel that was supposed to swivel and didn't. After reading your review, Glockberry, I went looking and bought the same case. Let me tell you it is awesome.
Thank you very much for your input. It is perfect for the 7100i. Nice fit, good looks, swivel and the flap is not a hindrance like I thought it would be.
I recommend this highly for anybody that wants an awesome case. I even got our IT guy to buy some for some of the guys at work.
Thanks again, Glockberry.

I am coming from a 860 and I love the plastic swivel. A few weeks ago I saw three different versions for the 7100i (standard, premium and rugged premium) on gyvergear but they said sold out for all three. I checked back last Tuesday (11/15) and they were gone off the web page. I emailed them asking when/if they would have more. On the same day they responded saying they would have an updated holster in 2 weeks. No the site has one back online with a sold out status.

I so want a plastic holster but I am afraid if its not OEM it might suck.

I e-mailed A.W. Enterprises last week about their wedge clip. They told me they are working on it and it should be out in the first part of December. For those not familiar, A.W. has that 3/4 circle with a flat spot on the back of the case and it just snaps into the clip from any angle. Turn the phone upside down to slide it out. It is what I have used for a long time and I have been waiting for a case for the 7100I before I ordered the new phone. I just ordered new phones for my wife and I today. Woohoo.

What is A.W.? In any case this is great news. I talked to my REP today and she said there has been some ramblings about this among up level management and as soon as she gets official word she will let me know.

The OEM CASE is my ONLY complaint about this phone.

Glock and Sanscritt,
How is the clip portion of the holster? I wear thicker belts, and want to make sure it will fit over it. Is it like the OEM of the 7520 where it clips over, or like the OEM of the 7100i where is slides over the belt?
Thanks for any help you can give!

11-25-2005, 08:55 PM
Toddboy71; I wear a thicker belt to support my, um, accessories and I have no problem. Like any clip it opens fairly far and is very supportive as far as keeping the case from sliding. It is alot easier to get on and off that the original, but also holds the phone in place.

thanks,

Toddboy;

Just like Sanscritt, I too wear.....ummm.....other accessories which dictate that I use a thicker belt for support. The holster.....I mean the case I got works just fine with any belt I own. Check out my previous posts in this thread. The clip isn't nearly as tight on this case as it is on the OEM. I can get it on and off fine without any problem. I must say, however, that I really liked the plastic clip on my old 7520 case. It allowed me to pinch the top of the clip to open it up for easier access to my belt. This case doesn't have that feature, but it isn't a problem. It goes right on to my thicker belt with no problem. It is easier, however, to do this with the phone in the case as opposed to an empty case. Hope this helps.

I should have ordered the dang holster without worrying about it. Stupid thing just fell out of the absolutely CRAPPY OEM holster, and cracked the lens over the LCD..... I swear!!!! As much as I love this BB, I am infuriated with this stupid holster. I would think they would want to put these things in the best holsters, but apparently RIM is more concerned about their NTP lawsuit.......Not sure what the heck I am going to do, but the thought of shelling out decent coin to be fixed chaps me pretty well.....

Toddboy71: Sorry to hear about your phone. I was concerned about the same thing, that or the whole case coming off because i keep turning mine at an angle the way I used to carry the 7520.

If you get it fixed, get the case. It works really well.

I just received the swivel holster recommended by GlockBerry and sanscrit-- the one sold by uniquemobile2 on ebay -- it is good except that the magnetic flip-over strap does not deactivate/sleep the device. Admittedly this is a minor problem, and one that I can live with given the alternative (the sad excuse for a holster provided with the 7100i). The magnet appears to deactivate the device momentarily as I insert the device into the holster, but when it's in the holster and I peel back the casing, I see that the device is still on.

Does anyone else have this problem with the Lambskin Leather Blackberry 7100 Pouch sold on ebay? Or is mine just a defect?

I thought that this was a problem initially but then as it wore in (48 hours) the thing worked fine. My problem with this case is the clip. The leather covering is wearing off because the leather slides over the metal clip and it is just wearing through. I have written this to the manufacturer. But this is still the best case available.

I don't have this problem on my case. It shuts off fine. The magnet on the flap isn't what sleeps the device. There should be another magnet sewn in towards the bottom of the case which puts the 7100i to sleep. I can feel it below the swivel clip if I feel around a bit (especially from the inside of the case). Check your case to see if it is in there.

As far as the clip coming through the leather, mine hasn't done that yet. But I can see where it may be possible since the leather is very soft. I'll have to wait and see on that one.

I don't have this problem either. Mine shuts off when I slip it in the case and it stays off. I have been waiting for the leather to wear off the clip, but it hasn't yet.

My only concern with the plastic holster would be potential wear on the device. The sides of my old 7520 wear being worn by the constant in and out of the holster. Not sure I want the same thing for this one.

-------------------------------
I don't know if this helps, but I wanted a heavy duty swivel clip full case for my 7100i. I went to Krusell and found their small wide case (http://www.krusell.se/product.php?p...t=616&x=17&y=14) and ordered it with the small metal swivel clip. The Krusell cases use a multiadapt system that uses all sorts of connectors.

The back of this case allows you to slip it on a belt either horizontally or vertically in addition to using the swivel button. I harvested a couple of strong but thin magnets from a dead hard drive, and slipped them into the belt loop on the back of the case. I how have a heavy duty case that covers the entire phone and has the sleep function.

I also emailed Daved Chang mintues after his post this morning asking for additional pics and SPECIFICALLY if it had the sleeper function. I have not heard back from him.

If this has the sleeper function and holds the 7100i securely they will sell alot of these. I have my fingers crossed, but thier lack of response scares me, unless they are trying to add it after the effect.

I am not that familiar with the magnet in general. I would think any magent you are considering, if it shuts it off then put it in. Is it possible to out on the opposite side? I am not sure how strong the magnet or even the size needs to be. In anycase I am sure something can be done. I would cut out a magnet from an OEM case and see how big it is or maybe someone here can tell you.

It turns off the display and lets the BB know that it is "in holster" so that it can use the "in holster" setting in the profile that you are currently using ( it may also do some other power saving things but I am not sure what those are).....

The magnet doesn't have to be very big and needs to be located over the #5. I took the magnet out of the OEM holster and it is the size of a dime and not as thick. I picked up a cheapo holster at a mall kiosk and made a small incision and slid the magnet in. Holster has swivel belt clip, goes on the belt easily and hold the phone tightly and no flap.. So far no complaints or issues.

I tested the 7100i with a magnet and the switch favors the battery side, however, the keyboard side works almost as well. The switch is directly in line with the #2 on the keypad.

After nailing down the location, I tried several different magnets. Thin flexible type refrigerator magnets are too weak. They will not activate the switch from the front or back.

I have a magnet from a harddrive that is about 1/8 inch thick that easily activates the switch, question is, will it fit in the Seidio case?

Seidio makes good products, I have a G2500S car kit for an IPAQ that I am very happy with.

I bought this one based on a recommendation earlier in this thread. Just checked and it is still available for $14.99. It is definitely the best one I've found so far for the 7100. Has the magnet for sleeper function and the strap is secured by a magnet as well. I like this vs velcro as it is quieter to get in and out of the case in meetings and such. The strap is also thin enough to allow for the antenna on the 7100i.

The case does swivel but it is sort of loose. I had the 7520 and liked the swivel on the holster as it locked in position. Not a big deal really but probably the only thing that could be improved.

OK here's what some of you have been waiting for, more pictures and 1 person's impression of the Seidio 7100i holster.

The holster is made of what appears to be a thick ABS plastic, quality fit and finish is high. The clip is a clicking swivel that moves 90 degrees in either direction. The movement is solid and stays where you put it. In the photo of the clip side you notice a red star, That is the location where I placed my test magnet for Blackberry sleep mode. That placement on the clip side is impractical because the magnet would interfere with the clip's vertical position. I actually did that to show David Chang where on the other side to place the magnet under the felt.

The top piece that holds the phone in the holster is actually spring hinged and holds tight without putting too much pressure on the phone, but holds the phone in place securely. I do recommend a small piece of felt on the phone side of this piece so as not scuff the phone in anyway. I also should add, I think the top hinged piece should be a bit longer and hangover more to the back of the phone at least almost to the Nextel label's top groove for more security.


Overall this clip was very well thought out as I notice there is a good amount of room between the phone's keypad and the felt side of the holster so that the holster would not touch the keys, yet the phone sits and is held securely in the holster.

The $30 price is a bit up there, but that happens when everyone else ignores us, it's a matter of supply and demand. IF 50 Ruf Porsche 969s are made and to be sold at a $150K price each, I am sure they will be sold at around 3 times that cost. Most of Seidio's holsters for other PDAs are between $27USD and $30USD

I will definately buy this item. (y) (y) (y) (y) (y) That's 5 out of 5 thumbs up.

PLEASE TAKE NOTE
I do not work for nor am I affiliated with Seidio apart from buying a few products they manufacture for the Treo 650. I did email them with some suggestions on what to do when making the 7100i holster and they asked me to play with one.

David I think you guys should also go ahead a make a rubber skin case also, just please make them in black and also in clear.

I have added a new picture of where I placed a magnet a bit smaller than a dime, it is about the thickness of 2 dimes, I believe it might be touching the keypad but the 7100i goes to sleep way before it gets close enough to touch. I was able to peel and reattach the felt without damaging it.

I think a dime's thickness should be good enough without touching.

The top piece that holds the phone in the holster is actually spring hinged and holds tight without putting too much pressure on the phone, but holds the phone in place securely. I do recommend a small piece of felt on the phone side of this piece so as not scuff the phone in anyway.

Overall this clip was very well thought out as I notice there is a good amount of room between the phone's keypad and the felt side of the holster so that the holster would not touch the keys, yet the phone sits and is held securely in the holster.

The $30 price is a bit up there, but that happens when everyone else ignores us, it's a matter of supply and demand. IF 50 Ruf Porsche 969s are made and to be sold at a $150K price each, I am sure they will be sold at around 3 times that cost.

I will definately buy this item. (y) (y) (y) (y) (y)

PLEASE TAKE NOTE
I do not work for nor am I affiliated with Seidio apart from buying a few products they manufacture for the Treo 650. I did email them with some suggestions on what to do when making the 7100i holster and they asked me to play with one.

David I think you guys should also go ahead a make a rubber skin case also, just please make them in black and also in clear.


OK I want one. Been waiting for this for a few months.

I know he said they were coming out with one with a magnet, but do you see if you can mod this one?

Looks great.

I agree with you on the price, although steep I think it is worth it.

I have added a new picture of where I placed a magnet a bit smaller than a dime, it is about the thickness of 2 dimes, I believe it might be touching the keypad but the 7100i goes to sleep way before it gets close enough to touch. I was able to peel and reattach the felt without damaging it.

I think a dime's thickness should be good enough without touching.

Hi,

In our holster, there is a thin protective pad to protect the screen. I think we can slide a very thin magnet to include the sleeper function.

What do you think

If you can accommodate the sleeper function you'll have a real winner!

I've been wearing the Seidio clip all weekend and it's a winner. I'll be stopping at Michael's tonite on the way home to get the magnet, as the "in holster" is a function that I want to preserve. I've got several other 7100i users here at work and if I can get the magnet to put it to sleep, I'll be ordering more of them by weeks end.

A longer belt clip would enhance the clip, but what is there is long enough to grasp the waistband or 1" belt with no problems. Our uniform belt is 2" so our need is specific to us.

FYI....The magnets I bought are sold in a package of 4. I am work so I do not have the package infront of me, but I believe the packaging was yellow. The bottom of the blister packaging shows numbers 1-10 for how strong they are. The ones I got were rated 10 and somewhere it said something to the effect "strongest mini magnets" available.

I can not wait for mine. It shipped today. I hope I have it Friday.

Just got mine from E-bay last Friday.. Works perfect... Sheepskin leather pouch with a 180 swivel clip.. Clip WAS tight only the first time I put it on my 2" belt. Stays secure after 5 days so far.. Has 2 magnets on both sides (does seems as though the screen should face away from body since the swivel is built into the case and you can feel the 7100i running over that) the 2 magnets are positioned at the top and the bottom of the case my only guess for this is so that you do not hit any keys as your putting the bb away. The strap that holds the phone secure might show some signs of wear after some time since it sets so smooth against the rest of the case I have to use my fingernails to open it up. The straps magnet is very strong!! That's my 2cents worth on a $29.00($21.95+$6.95 shipping) leather case.

Just as LIFESTAR reviewed. EXCELLENT CASE/CLIP.

I am a little skeptical though on how easy it could pop out. I agree if a new case is in the mix they should make that clip come over the phone and somehow slip into the groove of the EAR HOLES (indented area with 2 holes to speaker). I have been wearing for a few hours and it is easy to get in and out of.

My OEM case was pretty screwed up so I took the magnet out of it. I then peeled back the felt on the new case, placed the magnet where it needed to go and then put the felt back over and IT WORKED PERFECTLY.

The magnet I suggested earlier from Michaels may be too thick, not sure as I did not try it. From my recollection it is thicker.

Again GREAT CASE and I LOVE IT!

The OEM magent (looks like a washer as mine had a hole in it) is NOT touching the phone as far as I can tell. I again cut the magent out of my OEM case and cleaned the magnet off as it had sticky glue residue. The side that you clean the residue off of is the side that goes against the new case. The magent needs to go DIRECTLY over the #5 key. Once you line that up with the new case and find and mark the location on the new case. I then peeled the felt back off the new one about halfway (it is pretty durable), placed the maget and rolled/smoothed out the felt back over the magnet.

There appears to be enough room between the magent and the phone as there is no indication it is touching. I recomment this case PERIOD.

I must admit, I am a copycat, I had destroyed an OEM soft case trying to put a swivel and velcro closure on it. Worked but didn't look neat, so I pulled it apart and used the washer magnet. Worked like a charm right over the number 5 key. David Chang are you listening ?

What did you email him about? He clearly states above in his last post there is a version 2 coming out that will have the magnet. What else did you ask him that he has already not stated? There are MANY cases out there that do not have the sleep function. As far as when, who knows? Does the case still work WITHOUT the magnet? YES.

There is another problem with the Sedio case I believe. I had an 860 with a similar holster that was oem. It scratched the outside where it slid in. I had to get a replacement quickly to keep the phone looking new. I think this could be a problem, considering the paint peels off easily already. It did hold my 860 securely though.


Personally, I am having a problem deciding between these two

Seidio holster uses the "spring clip design" meaning when the phone is inserted into the holster, the top clip is lifted. It is different from the traditional holster. The contact between the phone and holster is at a minimum during in and out process. It will not scratch the phone.

Krusell has a case for the 7100i (and possibly other 7100 units). It employs the Multidapt system, so you can change the type of clip on the back. I like it because it has the plastic covering over the front of the unit. Unfortunately, there is no "sleep" function magnet since it is not a holster type case. Still, a very good looking case. Details here:
http://www.krusell.se/product.php?productID=2098&category=5

It is available for preorder here: http://www.pcs-ltd.com/store/product_info.php?products_id=1224 It will become available and will ship on Monday, January 30, 2006.

Hey do you think that forward facing 7100i holster shuts off the power like the 7520 does. I am thinking about getting it.

If the magnet is strong enough it will power down the unit from the back side of the unit.

I tried that and the magnet ended up being just a bit too large. It would not fit right so i gave up on it for the moment. I am still looking for a different style that is not as thick.

I ordered that Swivel Case for the 7100i from Seidio Online. I really like it for functionability, but it just doesn't power down the unit.

So what do you all think? The 7100i shuts the screen down after two mins. (on mine) and that is a form of saving power right?

Or is it different than in the OEM Case?

Well not really as your phone will act like it is "out of holster" all the time. Depends how you use your profile.

I have heard the OEM case has 2 magnets (one on each side). I would personally remove one of them (opposite the side of the KEYS) so you can still use the OEM case, if needed.

I removed the OEM case magents and it works with no problems and no interference.

Just my 2 cents.

Side Note: I have been using the Seidio case now for a few weeks and I love it. I have noticed that were the spring clip goes over the phone it is rubbing on the rubber top piece that says "BLACKBERRY". It is not "bad" but it is rubbing a little. Other than that I love this case.

Does the belt clip go competely over your belt?
How wide of a belt would it cover?

I finally got my Seidio Online swivel case working perfect. All I did was took a small battery, strong one, and I cut out a small section in the felt and super glued the magnet inside the case. It is shutting down and perserving my battery just as designed.

Personally I don't like the leather pouch cases, so the money and time spent on this one was fine with me...

I attached a picture to see my master piece in action .

any estimate as to when this second generation with the magnet will be coming out on the website? I am very anxious to get one of these but am in major need of the sleeper function ... I think modding it would be easy to take the magnets out of the oem case, but I would rather buy a product that has it dones from the manufacturer. Thanks!

Not to argue, but yes it did say that at one point. I bought one because it specifically said it was a swivel case. When it arrived and was nothing more than a leather version of the one that shipped with the 7100i, I called Nextel and the CSR agreed that the online description was inaccurate. He credited my account right then.

If the Nextel site doesn't say it's a swivel case now, then they've changed it--and rightly so. I haven't checked because I'm no longer with Nextel.

i would just like to say the rim leather case on the nextel.com site is a belt clip, and it does not advertise it as swivel, it never says that!

so you use a battery to cut a piece out of the felt? also is that the magnet from the oem leather pouch?

Glad you like it. I have had it for a few weeks now and love it.

FYI...No one knows the exact clearance between the felt and the keys. It may not sound like much, but putting the magent on the felt rather than under it, along with tape on that may cause it to hit the keys. IMHO I would pull the felt back and put the magent UNDER the felt, then smooth the felt back over it (no need to secure it as the felt holds it in place).

Just keep an eye on the electrical tape and your keys for any ware.

Good luck!

Review of Updated Seidio Clip:

First off I was a original purchaser of the clip without the sleep function. If you read earlier threads of mine and others this was a simple modification to add this to the older style clip.

BRAVO BRAVO....Whoever at Seidio came up with the addition of the rubber piece at the end of the clip portion GIVE HIM A RAISE!!!!! As soon as I popped it in I could IMMEDIATELY tell the difference. If felt WAY MORE SECURE. Again, I never had doubts that the old one was not holding my BB in securely, but the feel makes me way more confident.

The addition of the sleeper function is not noticable (ie...on my modded one you can see it thru the felt). Yes it works, you just can not tell its there. There must be a cut outin the plastic for the magnetic piece being used, hence why you can not see it.

Again I HIGHLY recommend this, even if you have the original. Seidio has designed a AWESOME holster for those looking for a Nextel Stye Swivel Clip/Holster. A+A+A+A+A+! (y) (y) (y)

Good Work Seidio and to David Chang and his Product Development Team.

Anyone have a source for a 7100i holster with a swivel clip?

I have no idea what RIM was thinking with the case that ships with the 7100i. Don't they test them? Mine is nearly impossible to clip onto all but the thinnest belt.
You can do what I did for a swivel clip holster.

I used the standard issue 7100 holster. I then purchased a $7 after-market swivel clip kit from a local electronics retailer. This particular kit had a provision to use adhesive tape to secure the swivel post onto the phone and the swivel post did have a hole that went all the way through it. Forget about the adhesive tape. I then drilled a hole through the BB holdster clip and rivetted the swivel clip to the BB holster. Voila! This thing is solid and it wont ruin my $150 belt!

I ordered this the other day...can't wait to get it. Seems like the best of what's around. I just recieved a vertical case from Fortte, it has quite a few drawbacks...It is designed to be worn on the right side, I wear it on the left. It holds the berry securely, but it only sleeps like 25% of the time. It uses the multi-dapt clip system, which sticks out from your body quite a bit and it is just too damn loose for me. One handed operation is just not possible (a must for me) The worst part is that I ordered a custom color combination and can't return it. What was I thinking.....Hope this is the answer to my prayers...

Edit: Sorry, I guess it doesn't fit (and they don't have one for) the 7100i with that funny thing ya'all call an antenna...but it's real nice for the rest of the 7100 series.

I had that one prior to this one http://www.seidioonline.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=243

Nothing was wrong with it, however it just did not compare to the seidio clip.
I tend to go for the "I'm not caring a purse on my belt" feeling and i just did not have that when i had that case. The seidio case is less intrusive and lighter on the belt.

John Clark
03-13-2006, 08:31 PM
Yeah, it's just a little big but I'm hard on stuff attached to my belt. The clip is probably not enough protection for me. I'd tear up my berry with that one. I tried the leather cases from ebay with the magnetic flap but they just don't hold up long enough. It will be an everlasting search for the ultimate case, I'm afraid.

David C. and David S. This is your prompt for making a high quality skin like you do for the Treo series. Just don't for get to make it in black also.

Hi Jeremy,

The premium skin for 7100i will be available next week. It will start with clear one. Then we can add some more color chips down the road.

Ordered 2 of these last week...they are very good, but one of them doesn't have the sleep function.....I really wasn't happy with the customer service, I called to explain, what happend and the cust. service person didn't seem to care that I was shipped the wrong part...I later got a call from a manager who smothed thisng aout a bit. So if you are ordering make sure to specify the newer holster with the magnet to enable the sleeper function.

Very Good case indeed.

We are only shipping the new type of holster that comes with the sleeper function now.

Sorry for the experience you had and thank you for the feedbacks.

I looked at them ALL! Hands down....you have to take a look at the Krusell holster and system for the 7100i. It was the 4th one I bought...the other 3 brands went in file 13!

Does anyone incl. seido have a good case_holster that will also carry a motorola bluetooth earpiece??? I really do not want to have to have a case for both separately.

Thanks,

I agree, I have the Krusell as well as the seido, both are very nice, but mainly use the krusell with a screen protector.

What a disapointment!!! Everyone has been raving about how this seidio case is the best! I really missed my 7520 holster and wanted a solution for the 7100i, well this was an expensive solution ($28.98 + $8.42 = $38.40) for something that should have been included in the first place. Ok now, it arrived in a crushed box with no real packing materials. I know priority mail is only about $4 so this was let down #1. Let down #2 is the fact that the magnet just isn't strong enough to put the phone into sleep. I have to push in on the battery door before the screen will go off. This is not at all what I was expecting. The softcase shuts the screen off no matter which way you put it in. This is a real disapointment, its better then the softcase I suppose but for what I paid and what everyone has/had said it's a major let down. The magnet also seems like its in the middle rather then over the 5, see pictures.

USPS fault, not case manufacture.

with no real packing materials.
Did you buy this for pretty packaging?

Let down #2 is the fact that the magnet just isn't strong enough to put the phone into sleep. I have to push in on the battery door
before the screen will go off.
I am sure if you email them they will send you a replacement. Myself and five friends do not experience this. Actually I just looked at the one I have and it actualy shuts off BEFORE it is even in all the way. I think the magnet is just misplaced somehow???

I am sorry you have had this experience. However the only real issue here is the sleep function, which the magnet could have been improperly placed. I am sure Seidio will take care of this. Over the last few weeks I have had, like I said above, order this case. Not one person has complained AT ALL, even about the price. Sure its a little expensive, however IT IS A GREAT CASE.

I hope everything works out.

Big Dave...try the Krusell cabriolet for the 7100i, along with a screen protector. That's my combo and I love it. Also have a perfectly working suido (magnet) which I may sell soon. I've tried both , but seem to like the krusell more.

I didn't say I did I just expected some thing a little more sturdy since I did pay $8.42 to ship a 1lb item that usps.com lists as costing $4.05 to ship.

The magnet does seem a little high, it looks to be over the shortcut button instead of over the 5. Does your shut off when you put it in the holster in the reverse position? Not that I expected this I was just checking the strength of the magnet.

Well the sleep function and to me the packaging was a little subpar for what I paid. Just because someone hasn't complained on the forum doesn't mean they aren't out there, maybe they just lost faith in this forum...(Ok, Ok that's drastic...this forums is the best :smile: )


I hope everything works out.

Me too, so you are suggesting I e-mail them directly and say my sleep function isn't working?

I can see your point.

Yes mine does shut off when put in face out. Thanks btw, never thought of trying it that way.(y)


(Ok, Ok that's drastic...this forums is the best :smile: )
Agreed!

Yes. I am positive they will help you.

Mine doesn't.... Not sure if its the magnet strength or placement.

Oh and congrats on your 100th post..GO GOBLUE! 8-)
