Does anyone know of a good clip or holster for the curve or one similar to the 8700 holster?

I do preffer the Rim leather case, I think it protect the BB better.

I tried that case for my 8320 and thought it sucked. I liked having the hard plastic case protecting the phone but the clip just doesn't secure the phone well enough. If it had snapped into the holster more securely I would've kept it.

I took mine back and picked up the leather pouch that T-Mobile sells:

I am on my 2nd one, I broke the clip on my first one. Overall I agree that the clip is weak, but it doesn't really matter to me if the phone falls because it is so well protected. The only problem that I have with it is that my screen now seems to have dirt embedded in it and no amount of cleaning will get it off. I know that everyone is going to assume I am talking about the "dust under the screen" issue, but on my first curve I didn't use a case or clip and had this issue. What I am talking about with this case is different, it actually marred the screen.

I ordered a belt clip from AT&T when I ordered my Curve, and it works great. Blackberry goes to sleep, screen is protected, and I can use it on my belt, or in my pocket.
Good luck with you clip/holster hunt.
