Default 8700g Extended Battery vs Extra Battery & Case Options - Gonna buy today!

Please Login to Remove!

Considering the few cases that I'd like to purchase literall today, just wondering what option is gonna suit me best. I've been looking at a couple case for my 8700g:

Fortte Blackberry 8700r, 8700c, 8700g, 8700v Flip Style Leather PDA Case

Piel Frama Cowskin Flip Style Case

Blackberry 8700c 8700g Krusell Classic Handit Multidapt Case - Sleeper Function

I've emailed every case manufacter and they've stated that none of these cases support use with the extended battery. Bad enough it's kinda like buying clothese never know if it's going to fit right.

Do most of your just carry around a second battery or deal with the extended battery + limited case options?

I'm currently enjoying PhonePix v1.81 and some other cool software that requires me to be able to have easy access to viewing my 8700g's screen without first digging for my phone through the holster etc.

Feeback is definitely appreciated..I'll probably throw my order in within the next 2 hours
