Default Pearl - Horizontal case?

Please Login to Remove!

Does anyone know of a horizontal case (not a vertical case that can be worn horizontally) that fits the Pearl well? I read that someone is using a T-Mobile SDA horizontal holster. How's the fit?

not to steal seidio's thunder - they have a beautiful case, but t-mo's sda case fits perfectly and costs less. the sda case doesn't fit too well if you're using a skin or hard case, seidio's looks like it would accept the rubberized case better.

actually I have the sda case - barely used, if your interested in it for just whatever it costs to ship it ups, pin me.

I just received up the Seido Case. The phone is loose in it - but it helps to have some space to get your fingers in when you are pulling it out.

This was my first purchase from them. The case shipped a day after ordering but after a few weeks it still had not shown up. I e-mailed with an inquiry about the case status and I got a one line e-mail back saying call the local US post office. This didn't help much since it was being shipped to Canada. I guess the rep couldn't take the extra 2 seconds it would have taken to figure that out. I e-mailed back stating I was in Canada and asking what my options were. I never got a reply.

Doubt I will buy anything from them again.

I have the SDA case from T-Mobile. It works great. The magnetic flap puts the Pearl to sleep.

Not really since the OEM leather holster is a vertical one.

Repeat of an earlier post - the T-Mobile SDA horizontal case is perfect. Magnet/holster mode works beautifully and it is a well built case.

Also, check out the Fortte cases.
Leather pda cases for your BlackBerry 8100 Pearl Open Face Leather PDA Case, BlackBerry 8100 Pearl Flip Style Leather PDA Case, BlackBerry 8100 Pearl Glove Fit Leather PDA Case, BlackBerry 8100 Pearl Lateral Pouch Leather PDA Case, BlackBerry 8100 Pe

There are some nice horizontal case options, plus I believe you like the looks of any of the vertical styles you can request that they put the clip in a "horizontal" position for you. I've ordered the lateral pouch and its waiting for me as soon as I get back from a road trip. As an added bonus, there's a 25% coupon available. Take a look at the accessories forum for more info.

Holiday Coupon for Blackberry Forum members

Good luck with your decision.
