Default 7130 Cases

Please Login to Remove!

For those who already have the 7130, are you satisfied with the included case? Is anyone considering an OEM or 3rd party leather case?

Thanks!

I think the case kinda sucks...it doesn't even completely cover th screen. The nylon-y material doesn't look professional at all. I am considering a 3rd party leather holster type thing.

Has anyone looked at this case from VZW?

Unhappy

I agree. Just got the 7130 yesterday and was EXTREMELY disappointed in the case.
Not only does it have the problems that you guys described, but it also has the following issues:
1. Way too loose. I can see it falling out easily
2. The belt clip is too small - looks like its going to fall off my belt
3. The belt clip doesn't Swivel - In this day and age??

I am definitely going to look at other cases, including going on EBAY. They seem to have a lot of 7100 Series items that should work with the 7130. I HOPE.
And the one one VZW looks nice - just don't like paying so much for just a case

I like the Krusell Case that covers the front of the phone in clear plastic. Will any of the current 7100 series krusel cases work with the 7130?

The correct way to place a 71XX in the OEM case is to put it in backwards. This way the screen is protected and the speaker is facing outward.

Yeah that is what I do but clip on OEM case is horrible. Hope they come out with a plastic holster like the 7250 had

Default verizon case

I bought the verizon case yesterday and it works a lot better than the oem one. it has a swivel clip on it only thing i did not like is that case cannot disconnect from clip.

I think the first accessory I'll get is a new case. I didn't see any in the Verizon store for the 7130. Not sure how your guys supplied belt clip is, but mine is so tight I think I'll ruin the belt putting it on and off. I don't think the phone will fall out of my case either... it's very tight and random buttons are pushed as I place it in the holster though it seems the unit then determines the device is being holstered and cleans up after itself, but I had a time when it didn't and the Phone app had random garbage entered.
