Default Fortte case vs. Seidio Holster

Please Login to Remove!

Please help me decide! Do any of you use either the Fortte Leather PDA Case STiL Vertical Pouch for BlackBerry 8800, 8830, 8820 or Seidio Holster.

I'm tempted to get the Seidio Holster because I'm not crazy about bulkiness, and I already installed Bodyguardz on my 8830 so the back will be protected although exposed when using the holster.

But....the Fortte leather pouch is tempting because I would like to protect my 8830 as much as possible, and wouldn't like for it to accidently fall out while using the holster. I've had phones fall out of holsters before.

Please help! Especially those of you with the Seidio holster for the 8830, please let me know if it's secure enough.

I read that the magnet (sleeper function) in the Seidio rubberized holster has caused some glitches on some people's BB. Anybody experience this?

The oem case clip broke on me after the first couple weeks. I also don't like plastic cases.

I think I'm going to lean towards the Seidio holster since my BB is already fully covered with Bodyguardz.

I have the seidio hybrid case and holster combo. No problems with the magnet function, the hybrid case is really nice - I like the rubbery back because its not slippery and I don't feel like the phone will just slip out of my hands. It works nicely in the holster, with a face in orientation which I think gives the front good protection. I do use a screen protector as well.

I don't wear the holster on my belt, so I can't speak for how well it works there.
