Default Stupid question about the carrying case, help a newbie out

Please Login to Remove!

I just got a 7290 and it doesn't seem to fit right in the RIM case it came with. It slides in fine with a little effort, but its a pain in the ass to remove. What is the trick to it?

Or is it the wrong case? I noticed on the official blackberry website that the hard case doesn't show my model number as compatible with it.

Truth there is nothing intuitive about the stock OEM holster that ship with the 72xx devices, its a pain to get the device out, they pop out and further they scar the units pretty bad as well. I would grab one of the RIM OEM leather swivel cases, much better solution. http://www.shopblackberry.com/_black...43E5TT8ZHNSCRD

Unfortunately thats what I thought! I would really like to keep it in the factory holder because its designed for the "holster" mode. I think I am going to try to soften it up in some boiling water.
