Default 7130e Clip Case - Seideio or Verizon Case

Please Login to Remove!

I'm debating on getting the Seidio case or the clip case that Verizon sells. The Verizon version is 19.99 and the Seidio is almost $10 more with shipping, etc. Thoughts on the major differences?

If you are referring to the plastic Verizon holster, I think the Verizon version has no magnet to operate the "sleep" mode function of the BB. For ten extra bucks I think I'd take the Seidio case.

spend the extra 10 bucks on the seidio case... i have had mine for about 4-5 months.... no problems w/ it.... i'm a firefighter also, and some times i forget to take my phone off when i get into my gear.... the case and phone was still attached to my belt after all the work i did....

also if u do a search someone compared the verizon case and the seidio case. verizon case broke at the top.

Default on my 2nd verizon case

spend the 10 extra bucks for the seido.

I am on my second verizon case, due to the plastic belt clip breaking away from the hinge.

I would do a search on it.. It's been discussed alot.. A couple of key threads are:

Review Seidio 7130e Swivel Holster (Many pics)

Hands on review: Seidio 7130e Swivel Clip Holster

IMHO, the seidio is the way to go.. Been almost 4 months with zero issues.
