Default Be aware 8350i owners most accessories DON'T FIT!!!

Please Login to Remove!

Be careful when buying accessories for your 8350i Nextel Blackberry. Almost all of the accessories will NOT FIT your blackberry.

So far I've looked at cases (8350i is slightly taller and thicker) and a the blackberry charging dock (should drop in and charge using the contacts on the back). Neither fit. Won't even bother with skins at this point.

Guess we'll have to wait for custom 8350i accessories. Hope they come.

I bought a magnetic holster at the Sprint store for my 8350i. None of the other BB holster designed for the 8300 series would fit. The only one I have found to date.

The metallic piece on the flap says "Sprint" w/ the symbol instead of "blackberry". Otherwise it looks just like the black leather models. I'll see if I can find a pic.

Doesn't surprise me one bit. I just ordered a nice holder off EBay that specified it was for the 8350i but I am concerned the phone won't fit !! We will see

Default eBay pouch works fine

I picked up a cheap eBay pouch (under $8) that is black, lateral, and has belt loops (I always knock the clip kind off) with a "DW" design on the flap.

The flap has no clasp, and is kept closed magnetically.

Fits/works well on the 8350i...
