Default BlackBerry 7100 Leather case possibility

Please Login to Remove!

I was in our warehouse and decided to look through various cases to see what might fit the BB 7100 I was carrying.... Looks like the TREO 600 side case is a good possibility - it's what I'm using.

Take a look

What do you think?

Not bad - but the sleeper function (magnet) is a must for me... Plus, I like the way my 7100 slips out of it's standard pouch vertically.

I personally don't like carrying phone vertically so this will work for now. I have already had the 7100 come out of the stock case once so I like the idea of the snap as well.

I understand your point and cases are a very individual choice.

Yes.

I really don't care bout the sllep function - It's real benefit is changing profiels for alerts (holstered/unholstered). The battery save is meaningless since the BB display will "sleep" automatically regardless.

Every BlackBerry I've ever had (that would be that 950, 957, 5810, 6710, 6230, 7230, 7730 and 7100t) has had the magnet activated "in holster" sleeper function. My guess is every BlackBerry has it.

Mine doesn't sleep if it's out of the holster, it goes to a screen saver but the screen is still on.

Boy I was typing fast... look at those typos!!!!

Sorry if my response was confusing... let me clarify:

Do all recent BB's have the sleep function - Yes.

Since this thread was started in relationship to the 7100 I was answering in that context - the 7100 screen shuts off after a set amount of time (backlight and pixels). In or out of the holster.

The 7200 etal shut off the backlight but the screen stays active - which is no big deal and a very small power draw. It's the backlight that kills ya.

That's true. Most BlackBerry screens use nearly no power when it's statically displaying information without backlight. At the moast it'll shave a day off a 5-to-6-day standby.

Another purpose of the holster is to automatically display incoming email messages if you take it out of the holster within 10 seconds of the alert.

Actually I don't like it displaying the message automaticly. Is there a setting or some way to stop it from doing that?

The nutshell case is leather - has the sleep function - has a strong clip and is guarenteed pretty much for life - costs 45 Bucks or so - I had a good review up of mine but the big one of 2005 wiped it out .
