Default Wanted: Leather Horizontal Pouch For 83xx Curve

Please Login to Remove!

I am looking for a high-quality, lambskin/leather horizontal-mount, belt-clip pouch for my Curve.

I would really like it to have the "sleep magnet" also that will put my BB into sleep mode when holstered to conserve battery life.

I have tried several of the cheapo China-made cases from eBay sellers, and they have come apart like a cheap suit!! I want something higher quality.

Any ideas?

Have you looked at siedo and fortte, two of our sponsors here, click the sponsor link on the menu bar above.

This one is pretty slick looking:

I have tested, used and reviewed a bunch of Seidio products...but they do not produce a leather case any longer...sad, but true. I have also tried the Fortte case, and it is such a bear to retrieve the BB out of it, that the call is normally gone already by the time you do. It is certainly not user-friendly at all, IMO.

The problem that I keep experiencing with horizontal cases is that the Curve fits much too snugly inside of them, and it makes it a real challenge to extract the phone quickly when an incoming call comes in.

I wish I could find one with elastic on the sides to allow for a little less snug fit and better performance...
