Does the 8700C case not fit the 8700G? I was under the impression that the device cases were identical. No?

Ordered mine today. While I liked the idea of the original Seidio case, thought it left the Berry kind of exposed but with the Skin, that should help. Also was a little leary as I had a case similar to the original Seidio for a Razr phone I used to have. And it pretty much launched the phone if it dropped. But with a skin to protect it even if that happens the Berry should be protected.

Thanks for the great review LG. I got 8700c about 3 weeks ago, and read every single article from you and Seattle.

I ordered the Seidio skin/holster combo and have been using it for about a week. Overall, its a decent skin/holster combo, but I would like to make 4 points:

1) It doesn't look as ugly as in the photo. I thougt twice about buying it since LG's picture show it as bluish-jelly like tint. However, you won't even notice it after a week. It has a nice feeling that it's protected from minor bumps, and the grip feels nice in your hands. Regarding lint, I keep it outside in the holster (not in my pocket), but I don't have any major lint buildup.

2) Holster is nice with the clasp and the felt inner lining. I can easily get my beautiful 8700c in and out with one hand. However, the holster sit a bit high. I'm a slightly bigger man with the side of my gut hanging out, and it sorta pinches my skin when I sit. I just wished it was lower...or maybe I just need to lose my gut.

3) As evident in the pictures, the earpiece hole doesn't exactly lineup with the earpiece. I tried over and over again to re-align it, but it ain't gonna work. I don't think it actually blocks any sound, but it looks a little sloppy.

4) Lastly, the square cut for the screen, is more like a slight trapezoid. It may be due to the stretching of the material, but the lower end of the square is wider than the top. You can also see it in LG's photos. Minor complaint really, but still noticable for those who spend 75% of their days with blackberries.

Maybe David Chang from Seidio can fix my gripes and send me another one?

Although I've been using the Skin exclusivly since I've gotten it. It's been rainy here in Illinois and it's helped a bit when I'm commuting to work and receive an important E-mail (I ride my bike to work and I think it offers some slight water protection). The holster clips perfectly to my bag, and when I'm at work, it's great to throw the skinned BB in my cargo shorts.

I agree, the bar on the lower half of the screen covering the buttons could be quite a bit tighter, but overall for $19.95 (well slightly cheaper with the combo) this is a great option for a case.

Edit: Found the answer on their web site. Sleeper mag is built in on the skinned holster.

With the combo, skin and holster, does the holster have the magnet for the sleep function as found on the OEM holster?
