Default Holster for use with Silicone Skin ???

Please Login to Remove!

I bought the Silicone Skin to protect my 8830 but it is very tight in and out of the OEM Blackberry Holster. Is there a holster available with a little more room so it isn't so hard to get it in and out ?

Thanks in advance for any info you can give me.

Mine with a skin is tight too, but I use it. It has loosened up. I even stretched out my leather holster some to accommodate it. It could still be looser for my preferences.

I do the same here. You get used to it. Use the silicone cover and holster, along with a shieldzone screen cover, keeps your BB in pristine condition!

Mine is a little tight, too but I think it will probably loosen up a bit over time. I like the holster, except for the flap covering the speaker and muting the ringer.

I actually have been using my BB branded leather case that I used with my 8703e...the vertical model with the full flap on top. It is exactly the right size with the skin on the 8830. The corners do stick out just a little through the cutouts on the case but not so much so that it looks odd. So far, I like that much better then wrestling the unit out of the 8830 case...although I didn't try to stretch it at all. I tend to prefer the full flap anyway just for a little extra protection.
