8130 Case
 
My Verizon Pearl 8130 arrives tomorrow to finally replace my decrepit 7100i, and I am ecstatic.

As I can't afford the Seideo holster this week does the 8130 come with a pouch case like my 7100i did or do I have to go (gasp!) naked?:-(

Comes w/a leather (or synthetic leather) pouch from Verizon, no belt-clip or anything, so it's meant for pocketing/pursing. Don't know if that is standard across carriers...

Yes the 8130 does come with a case. It doesn't have any type of clip on it, but it works well if your carrying it in your pocket or bag. It's nice because it will automatically put the 8130 into "sleep" mode when you put it in the case and awake upon removing it.;-) Not sure if this is a common feature with BB.

It comes with a leather pouch.

Fat lot of good that does when your used to it on your hip.

Well, maybe I can convince my wife to for go our first married Valentine's Day. Probably not if I want a second one!

Don't dump the stock case so fast
 
Hey, don't dump the case it came with without trying it first. I used to carry my phone on my hip as well. The 8130 is small enough that it conveniently fits in your pocket. I now carry my phone in my pocket using the standard case. It doesn't get hung up on seat belts that way and can't get knocked off your belt.

Puzzleman, I will try it for a few days -- However -- I went to my boss, and used my "But.....Mom" voice, and she bought in. I ordered the seidio holster on the company's nickel.8-)

I hate the case it came with I cant feel it vibrate at all in my pocket. I want a belt clip so bad.

Roger that...
just pocket it for now and after you survive your first Vday as a married couple THEN go "honey, i would really like this" or even ask for it as a Vday present ;-)

Best Buy sells the leather cases with clip for about $25 or you can get them online for cheaper
