Default 8800 Accessories work on Bold?

Please Login to Remove!

So I just upgraded to the Bold.. Really nice!! What I was bummed about was that I had to buy a new case or two.. Low and behold, I just put my Bold in the Seidio clip and it seems to fit - Not perfect, but pretty snug.. Like wise with the OEM case for the 8800 (which I like more than the Bolds OEM case)..

Just wondering if there were other people using their 8800 cases with their Bold, and whether they've had any issues.

I did find one issue so far.. Using the Seidio 8800 holster, it actually pushes the camera button on the bold..

some will, some wont. the bold and 8800 are slightly different sizes, so that will affect tight fitting things. also, they are a totally different shape

I use the OEM 8800 holster with my Bold. A tight fit to be sure but not as... well, chunky/boxy, as the holster that came with the Bold.
