Just curious, anyone else notice the screen marks up very fast, when using the holster that came with the unit?

That's why I left the original plastic on the screen until I got my OEM leather case. So far, so good.

This has been a problem with all 7100 series Berries.

Stop using the crap holster that came with it, and get a leather one.

ok. I got a q. I want a holster, that swivels if possible, and it doesnt have any flaps, ot straps, or anything. just basic, small, leather like you guys said to protect the screen. any ideas? I saw this one:

But it has a flap that covers the phone. I use my bb A LOT, and didnt want to bother opening and closing the case all day. Also, dont want horrizontal. Any ideas from you guys? OEM if possible, so the screen turns off.

That's the whole point of the 7105t upgrade- hard covering on the screen itself. So far, T-Mobile is the only carrier with the upgraded phone.

cant you just buy a screen protector and cut it to size?
i am sure there is something out there that would work

Yes...regardless of the holster/case it is important to have a screen protector on your unit. I posted another thread about this but no one really knew of any 7130e specific ones as of yet.

So, I just went to Staples and purchased the cheapest palm protectors they had and cut them to size. I took the suggestion from someone in the 8700 forum and photocopied my 7130e, then traced it on the protector and cut to size. It's perfect. It covers the entire area all the way from the "Blackberry" logo all the way down to the send and end keys.

Until a quality one comes along from boxwave or the like, this will do.
