Default Hydrofoam case...how its meant to be!

Please Login to Remove!

I have no idea why we got the launcher, and why everyone else (Milante, etc) sucks at making proper hydrofoam cases. But, don't despair! The OEM BB case is excellent! The clip is nice and beefy, and it rotates too.







Too bad I never wear mine on my belt (but in my pocket instead), so the speaker's facing the wrong direction.

Its an OEM RIM case. Made available to those who have the T-Mobile in the UK.

I hunted ebay.co.uk for weeks until I found someone who was offering one...and asked if he would ship to the US.

Oh, and the sleeper function works as it should (unlike the Milante case)...and it doesn't press any buttons while inserting.

If you're interested, use the search term: "8700* case -nikon -krusell -aluminum -aluminium -glove -leather -skin -hard -charger -silicone -crystal", and it should filter out most of the excess garbage that people advertise on eBay. They're pretty rare though...that was the only one I saw over a 4-5 week span. ebay.com.au is probably worth checking as well.

If there's a specialized UK BlackBerry forum, you might have good luck there. I've heard they've wanted the OEM launcher.
