Smile 7130e Non-leather holsters / cases

Please Login to Remove!

For reasons that I won't bore you with I won't buy a leather case. I'm currently using the one that came with my crackberry and after less than 24 hours of using it I detest it. It's hard to clip on and the clip is digging into my side.

I've searched for cases but the only case I have found that is non-leather is the Sport Holster. Does anyone know if this case has a clip? Or does it only have the carabiner clip? Are there any other case options out there that are non-leather? I'm not looking for a metal case, or a rubber case - just a normal clippable case that isn't made of leather.

I figure worse case I can make my own (I'm a sewer) but I haven't quite figured out the whole magnet thing yet.

If you create your own case, configuring the sleeper magnet is not that difficult. A small disc/button sized magnet is what you need. Just place it near the bottom of the 7130 to see where it activates the sleeper function. Then sew it into your case.

I too wanted a non leather case for my own reasons...which you probably share. But after months the only one I could find was this one: http://www.blackberryden.com/wscanhol71.html

Honestly, it's not that great. I do not like the removable clip due to the fact that it makes the case/BB protrude to much from my side. I would have loved it if it had an integrated or smaller low profile clip. I have since gone back to the OEM canvas case and have gotten used to it. I agree the clip sometimes diggs at my side, but as for getting it on and off your belt, try a rotating motion...it works for me. But if you do find another non leather one out there, please post back.
