ATTENTION Piel Frama 8700 Case Buyers, Important Information For You!!!
 
I recently did a review of the new Piel Frama Leather Case for the 8700 Series. In that review I mention the mislocation of the sleeper magnet. I have contacted the company rep and got a response from him this morning. Below is his quoted email.

Quote:

With regards to the cases that any of the forum members may have received with this production fault, I would ask you to let them all know that Piel Frama will replace all these cases with the magnet in the correct position and at absolutely no cost the them. That is to say that they only have to keep in touch with my colleague Manuel Garcia at [email address] and he will arrange to send them these replacements at the earliest (in about 8 to 10 working days as mentioned in my previous e-mail). Of course, none of them will need to return us any of the cases they have now (this is a small gift from Piel Frama).

Very best regards

So any members who have already placed an order with Piel Frama for this particular line of cases, contact Manuel Garcia immediately to arrange for your new case.

Nice company, I love good customer service when I see it.

Sorry to go a bit off topic...but, Seattle, I am in need of a case for my 8700.

First and foremost I am thinking about getting a "skin" for the unit itself. Now money is not really an issue, considering even the most expensive skin is only about $10.00

But for the case, what do you feel is the best case for the money, nothing ridiculous though, I dont want to see cases above $100 really, because then I get tempted and realize the $40 case was just as good ;-)

I really like the piel farma case, although, I have always been accustomed to using my blackberry "naked", for lack of a better word.

I also liked the vaja cases, but am somewhat weary after all the negative replies on fittings and thier initial position on exchange/refunds

your professional opinion is needed once again, thanks :-)

This is a difficult question to answer. Much of this is personal preference. I can tell you, after all the cases I have owned and reviewed, my personal choice, currently, for my daily use is the Seidio Swivel Clip Holster. I have been using it daily since I received it, with no complaints. What I really look forward to is the addition they are about to make to this holster. They are just a few days away from adding the 8700 Skin to the lineup, meaning you will be able to have a rubber skin permenantly protecting the BB, and still be able to holster it in the Swivel Clip Holster I recently reviewed. To me, this is the best of both worlds - you get a rubber skin that protects the device out of the holster, and a very reliable and functional holster that holds the device firmly, even with that skin on it - you can't go wrong. I will be reviewing the rubber skin very soon, and I will post a thorough review in here when I get it. My hope is that is will be the absolute perfect solution to a daily carry - in holster and out of holster protection, with a reliable and sturdy swivel clip carrier.

Just toss in my own two cents but with a case, I've never really found that I needed to put on a skin but lgreenberg swears by his egrips though...
