Default Anyone have a Case for 7230/6230 that they like??

Please Login to Remove!

Hello,

I am looking for a case for my 7230 .. I like the Krusell Case but I am not sure its going to be a bother to open it. I like to slide it out in a hurry and look at it.

Also I saw a leather case case that is just like the holster that comes with it except it is leather and covers the back of the unit. Anyone have that case, I think it is made by RIM.

If anyone has any other cases they like, I would like to know.

Thanks,

Vinnie

The standard RIM leather case with swivel works quite well.

I just received the standard leather BB pouch with belt clip in the mail today. So far, so good.

Hello All ... thanks for writting back

How hard is it to remove the "standard RIM leather case with swivel"? I have a hard time with the holster and thought it would be harder with only having the top to pull it out. Also does it hold it secure??

Thanks!

It's actually quite easy, but still holds the phone securely. I just grasp it by the top corners and it slips out. But when you aren't pulling on it, it snuggly fits in the pouch. I think it's worth more than the $20 it costs, and am anxiously awaiting a 7100T version for my new phone!!

I just upgraded to the rim leather case. Its snug and offers nice protection. I had an issue at a part time job last friday, ended up running (yes i know at my age...) after some kids, caught them (to their suprise), and only later did I think about the bb on my hip. It was fine.

I would not have felt that comfortable about the snap in plastic holder.

On the same note when I work where it might get physical I dont carry such toys, they dont roll well with you 8)
