It's too large for the 8700... of course the 8700 would fit in there it would just have some additional space.

Nice review, my wife actually has this similar case for her 7100, and I am glad the 8700 case has the flap on the top, I am hoping mine ships from SmartPhoneDepot on monday, I had placed my order on March 1st. It will be nice to get rid of this plastic clip

Default Buying a Fortte

I have read this string and the previous on cases. I want a horizontal case and it seems that the Fortte will be the most reliable. I want to keep it as low-profile as possible....is there a special clip that I should purchase...or does the one that comes with the case suffice? Also....where is the best place to purchase the item. Thanks!!

The only place, that I know of, to purchase a Fortte case from is from them directly.

www.fortte.com

It comes with a belt clip. I haven't seen a replacement that fits.

I find your comment funny because I used to think the same thing till i started investing in Treo's and now a Blackberry but I'm going to assume you don't use a case just wait till you throw it in your pocket with keys or something or accidently bump into a table and crack your screen... We won't be geeks anymore.

Cases I use for my 7130e are the Verizon one with the long flap when I first got the phone, but I place my phone on my sun visor in my car so I've gone back to the case that came with so i can slide it in and out w/o a flap. I'm constantly switching!
Verizon Case = Good Case, Sleeper Magnet, Swivel Clip, Mostly Protective
Stock= Easy slide access, Sleeper, Not super protective.
I wish i could have easy slide access and better protection for the top of the phone w/o having to have a flap!

It would work fine but you will have a 1/4" of play in the width. I used a 7290 case http://store.bizshopr.com/spdmon0193.html for ever on my 8700 and it was fine. I see no reason this case wouldn't work. The Hydofoam cases have somewhat of a lip on the top to retain the unit so i do see it "popping out" readily. I will test it on Monday for you.

As far as we know we are the only ones... I would suspect other sources would have them in a week or so... but then why would you shop anywhere else but SPD????

Dammit. I tried purchasing it from SPD, but no options to ship to Canada. Any plans to include Canada or anybody with a PayPal account want to pick up an extra one and post it up for sale to a Canadian?

From the other thread...............

SmartPhoneDepot is in process of converting from our Yahoo! based shopping cart to a new database powered system. The conversion along with some backoffice mods will allow us to ship north. These changes will be complete by the end of the month.

Look for the new store to debut on March 15th... shipping to Canada to follow shortly after.

I got mine today. SPD was great to deal with and will buy from again. This is the only case I own, not like some people that have like 10 of them..........lol. I like it a lot and think it is a heck of a lot better thatn the holster. It seems very durable and it is constucted very nice. I will still be using my holster for my car. I put it on my sunvisor so I can hear when someone calls me, that way the seatbelt doen't get in the way of taking it out of the case.

It's a tough call.

You can't go wrong with either.

I've been using the OEM RIM exclusively since I got it. Perhaps that says something.
