Question how do you holster your 8320?

Please Login to Remove!

folks, i just got confused today. how do you holster your 8320 with the leather pouch that came with it? can you post photos? i think i am doing it in reverse or whatever. btw, which one is the front? if i use how it's done like this:



the camera lens doesn't get covered. if i do it the other way around, it seems perfect. all the BlackBerry logos can be seen and the camera lens gets covered.

I use the holster that came with it. The correct way if to holster it is where the front of the BlackBerry is facing towards the thumb groove (the side that says BlackBerry at the bottom). The lens on the back really doesn't get covered, though. But if you do it the other way, the groves from that belt clip section start to make marks on the screen. I used to do it that way until I noticed it making marks on the screen.

oh my, no wonder my screen got some marks. i hate myself now for not taking good care of my BB. i used to think that the portion for the belt clip could also help out with space for the trackball and the other side with the thumbgroove can help cover the lens (all BlackBerry logos can be seen completely with that setup)

are there any solutions that could somehow fix those little marks/scratches? i know it's too late for me to get those screen protectors.. i've had this for over a month now and it already has marks on the screen! i hate myself.

There may be some screen scratch removers out there. Fortunately for me I found the issue soon and I was able to just wipe my screen down with a paper towel and Windex. I didn't have any actual scratches on the screen, just little marks that I could wipe away.

I think it was designed so that the smaller groove goes in the back. Like the Op said, that way you can read both blackberry logos and the camera lens covered.

I keep mine this way, and I haven't noticed any scratches.

I put it in so the trackball is in the groove.

Exactly.
I love that sleeve, but it should of had some more features to it, such as;
- Hole on the side for plugging in headphones
- Clip attachment for that groove so you could clip on pants.
