Default Help Finding an 8700g flip case!!

Please Login to Remove!

I'm trying to find a good case for my 8700g and despite having read the forum reviews I keep finding major flaws in the cases I have bought so far. I need some help finding a case similar to the two below but one that actually fits the g model well and works well too. I don't necessarily need sleep mode with the magnet. Is it true that the c model fits cases a little differently than the g model?

I like the leather and accurate fit of the Sena flip case but the magnets are too weak and the flap has no additional closure than weak magnets. Also is missing any way to attach it like a clip.

Just got the Krussel Handit flip case. It doesn't fit the 8700g!! When the BB is totally seated at the bottom of the case, the cut-outs for the speaker, trackwheel and buttons on both sides do not reach high enough. The speaker is totally covered, and the trackwheel and buttons are partially blocked. I like the leather and I'm glad it has a snap closure. The clip is a little weird because it rotates 360 degrees and there is no way to lock it into place. It's nice you can remove the BB in it's case form the clip on your belt though.

So help finding a perfect case is welcome! Thanks

Have you looked at the fortte or nutshell cases? Ill be ordering one of the two once I decide between them. People seem to love both of these companies

Default Flip Case

you should check out Blackberry Den online. They have a great selection of cases at very reasonable prices. I just ordered 1 through them! 2-day UPS Ground delivery for about $5 Enjoy!

I will sell you my Sena case, and it comes with a clip (the clip does not lock, just swivel). My pin is 203FCCAF if interested.
