Default skin + holster for red 8830

Please Login to Remove!

I'm thinking of upgrading to a red 8830, and I would like to get a skin / holster combo for it. The seidio skin + case looks promising, but I'm a little concerned about how the red will look with it color-wise. They list a black and "white" ... is the "white" really a clear skin? If not I'm not sure that the red case would look decent with a black OR a white skin...

Anyone out there with a red 8830 with a good skin / holster combination that would care to chime in?

I got a Seido Soft Case last week and I am very happy with it. It goes very well (fit wise and color wise) with the red 8830 i have.

Link to this page and scroll down to the bottom to see Soft Touch Hard Cover - Burgundy

Enter your location

Aloha!

Is that the Seidio case on the Verizon site? It didn't say who the mfg. was...

Yes it is. The back of the case is marked SEIDO

Along with the red (burgundy), it comes with blue as well.

I also got a black silicone cover. But i prefer the soft touch cover.

On Verizon's site, there is also an OtterBox case that looks like it covers the entire device, including the screen. It looks rugged as well.

Aloha

I forgot to add this note. With the seido soft touch cover in place, I am still able to use the leather holster that came in the box. It's a little bit tight, but it fits.

Aloha!
