Default BB 7290s screen cracks when dropped

Please Login to Remove!

Many users are dropping the 7290s when they make or answer calls and the screens crack very easily. They have to remove them from the holster to see callerid or read e-mail etc, so headsets are not the answer.
Are there any padded cases that provide protection when the 7290 is out of the holster and access to the screen and keyboard are still needed?

Yes, there are padded and/or leather cases available for all the BlackBerry models. A number of the forum sponsers sell cases for the BlackBerrys. Check out the Sponser Forum for links to their sites.

I know there are cases available, but the ones I've seen require you to remove the case to see the screen and use the keyboard. It can still slip out of their hands and break before they put it back in the case.

I guess I was tring to politely suggest that you look at what is available and make your own decision. Every case has its pros/cons and is untimatly up to you what will fill your need. You can also look in the Reviews forum. There are a number of case that have been reviewed that may help you with your decision.
