View Full Version : 8700g Case wanted.... Is it out there?

After a few weeks alternating between the OEM holster and a 3rd party leather pouch I picked up at CompUSA, I have decided what I want in a case/holster

1. J-hook = very important, so it won't slide off my belt during vigorous activity or when getting in and out of the car

2. cover flap- not one of those 2 pieces of something with elastic in between, also very important to prevent my 8700 from going swimming when I "drop trow" to use the commode

3. a fixed clip or firm ratchet clip - not one of those swivel clips (they flip around too much, and my case always ends up pointing upside down)

4. full surround protection- the OEM holster provides no protection to the back of the unit if you brush against anything abrasive (no in-laws jokes please :smile: )

5. a non-exorbitant price tag- I am sure that if I drop enough bills someone will make me one to order.... but I am really looking in the $20-$25 range no frills.....

Material?? I don't care leather, plastic, and Italian marble are all fine ..Just not Naugahyde!! I can't stand the way they club those baby Naugas just to get their hides ;)

Does this case exist?
So, can one of you point me to the case of my dreams?
Thanks in advance BBF members!

check out the OEM full case, i believe its leather or lambskin or something, cost me like 18, and its pretty damn near perfect for carrying, and i'm very active.

RIM's leather cases meet all those requirements.

Thanks ...
Is it available from RIM or through a 3rd party reseller? I did not see anything like that at my local T-mobile shop....?

It is available from TMO, all the retail stores here have them, as stated above they are nice.
