Which way are you supposed to put in the phone? Either way still dials some numbers which is annoying?

I am talking about the case that comes with the phone...thanks

Speaker out. Screen toward the belt clip.
I just ordered a horizontal case to replace the one that came with the phone.

Looks like a nice case, but did you see this?

This case is compatible with the BlackBerry sleeper function for all models listed below except the BlackBerry 7130e phone.

You can always just hold the * key for a second or 2 to put the keyguard on before holstering it.

But that won't enable the sleeper function and the different functions when in the holster (tones,etc.)

If you look inside the case, the 7130e hits the magnet as you insert it. The case is the same as the rest of the 7100 series cases. The 7130e is a little wider, making the case a tighter fit. Mine hits the numbers as well, and it seems to be getting better as I use the case longer. Also, I noticed that unless you give it an extra push, it does not always go all the way down into the case. This causes the magnet not to line up and the Blackberry will remain unlocked. This can also cause your numbers to be hit at times.

It does and it does.

Couldnt last more than 1 day with the case that came with unit.

Went to a verizon store and for 24.99 you get a nice leather case with a flip cover. Swivel clip on the back and magne tinside to sleep it.

Very nice.

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 there small wide case (http://www.krusell.se/product.php?prodGrp=1&s=2&product=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 bu 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.

Wow. I really hate Sprint/Nextel. That link I provided above. Yesterday it gave a different item number and said the holster had a swivel clip. So i placed the order and when placing it, it just said I was ordering a Blackberry holster. I checked it this morning and It has a different item number and now it is just a clip. I checked the details of my bill online and theysent the one with just the clip. Nothing like a bait and switch.

Another vote for the Verizon leather case w/ swivel clip.

I was looking for a swivel clip case w/o the flap that goes over the phone. But after a couple of days with the soft-sided case that came with my 7130e, I decided to try the Verizon leather case.

It works great. The flap over the phone is no big deal, still easy to 'draw' the phone quickly. And the 7130e fits better then it did in the soft case, as this case doesn't push the keys when you insert it.

I was going crazy with the key presses and was tiring of locking the keypad manually each time.

I ordered the Blackberry vertical leather case and it works much better, but still presses the keys on occasion. More annoying yet are the key presses on the way out. Adds an extra step to unlocking.

I have found with the leather case, the quick you holster, the less key pressing happens. I am sure as it "breaks in" it will improve.

I looked at this the other day....two main complaints:

1) The flap is just too darn big. If you're wearing a coat, having to deal with that thing is just ridiculous, and

2) The clip looks like it was designed by NASA and given an overdose of steroids. It's massive, and sticks way too far out from the case itself.

I'm holding out for the gizmoskin...nice little flap and a very discreet swivel clip.

I e-mailed gizmo - he said the 7100 case would work with the 7130, but you have to put the 7130 in upside down for the magent to work. So that's impractical. He said he may have one in about 6 weeks (that was a few weeks ago).

The thing I dont like about the Verizon case is the device goes in Key side out.

It is awkward to take the device out and use. You have to flip it around.

The flap stays down on my rim case, I am assuming you mean the BlackBerry 7130e Leather Swivel Holster. Of course the case had to break in.

The RIM case would be perfect if they put a cut-out in the front for the speaker.

I have both RIM leather cases; with and without the flap. I like the easy in which you can access the BB with the non-flap case but hate the stiff belt clip. Now that its winter, the BB is somewhat protected with sweaters/sweatshirts that I wear. When it gets warm, I want to use the flip case to protect the top of the BB from accidental nicks and such.

The RIM flip case is somewhat stiff in the back and does not really close securely (I think its too short in comparision to the VZW case). What I don't like about the VZW case is the fact the BB sits face out. As pointed out here, its more difficult to manuver it so you can see the screen with it pointing out.

I'm hoping the gizmoskin case will be the better choice when they come out with a case for the 7130. I just hope it will allow a face in orientation.

Does the sleeper function still work when the unit is placed in the holster screen facing in? Does the clip make the case stick out too far when wearing on your belt?

I bought one and returned it. Don't get me wrong, it was solidly built, but the clip was HUGE. It stuck a good 1/2 inch or so out from the unit - that was the downfall for me. Plus the flap was way too big - seemed like alot of leather to flip over to retrieve the phone. One other thiing that may bother you: you need to place the phone in the holster with the screen facing out to activate the sleeper function (at least that's what happened with the one I bought). Which means when you retrieve it, you have to flip it around. I like putting my BB in the holster facing in - that way when I slip it out, it's already facing me. That may not be an issue for some people.

Thanks gadgtman. That's what I thought. I'm using the RIM OEM leather holster w/o flap (although I have the leather flap one from them too... I plan to use it during the summer when sweaters/sweat shirts don't cover the unit on my belt). I HATE the stiff clip but the 7130 slides in/out very nicely and it faces in. I cannot imagine having to flip the unit to operate it with the screen facing out. I know gizmoskin is going to release a 7130 case within a few weeks. That may look promising.

This is not the holster I got. The unit is a plastic holster. You seat the phone in the 'cup' piece at the bottom and push the phone in - it has a clip piece that goes over the top to hold it in place. It has a belt clip that can swivel. Have not checked to see if it has a magnet yet - it only came in the mail this morning.

You're welcome. I'm also holding out for the gizmoskin - I'm hoping you can place the BB face in with that one. I really like the looks of the swivel clip - he way it's built "inside" the case, very discreet. Dan from gizmoskin has another thread going and it looks like he's asking for feedback on how the 7130e case should be designed.

Not that one either - it is hard plastic, open on the front. It only interfaces with the berry on the bottom, the cup which the 7130 sits into and the top clip which 'clips' over the top of the 7130. It is hard plastic, has a back and the 7130 can go in face out or face in. I'm not sure it has a magnet as I don't see on anywhere on the case.
