Default Leather belt clips are trash!!! I want a plastic one!

Please Login to Remove!

I wish Cingular gave out a belt clip like one that's out for the 8700

Does anyone know where I could order one?

I have to agree, the case is kinda girly, has a Coach store feel.

I have dropped, ding'd, scratched and marred my 8700 more times due to that blank-et-y blank plastic holster. I am glad that they made a secure, impossible to jump out and fly down the concreted stairs of a Dallas Stars hockey game, not gonna drop into the toilet, leather holster.

How does the top work? Just a hard clip or does it have a flipping mechanism?

That isn't so bad then. I wonder if it would damage the top? I guess dependent on how tight the fit is.

Don't they call the RIM 8700 plastic belt holder "the launcher"?

Once you've found your plastic holster, please mail your leather ones to me. I think they're great!

They will most likely release a clip, then a rubber skin with a bigger clip that works with that skin. Both clips should have magnets for sleep also.

I think a clip with a BlackBerry 8800 Full Body Shield would work well for me.

I hope so. I'll be buying 10 day 1 so I hope they hurry. I'm almost ready to switch back to pearl just to use the seidio holster again.
I hope they come out with extended batt for this too, they did an amazing job on the batt for 8700 and pearl I was impressed.
