Smile New owner of a 7520! Looking for a Case

Please Login to Remove!

Hey guys,

Does anyone know if they are going to come out with a 7520 Tight Skin? I am not liking that 4x4 tire looking skin. Maybe i'll buy the nextel balistic nylon case or something.

Any suggestions from the team 7520 users.

Thanks,
Gutts


PS: I also got those two cool themes (orange and voda) installed on mine and they are working great.

I just got the Skin Tight by Speck Products for my 7290 and I will be sending it back. DIdn't like the fit and it makes the BB too thick. Going to look for a regular case for it.

I have the hard metal case, leather case from krusell, speck rubber case, I use the metal one the most, speck would be ideal in the field but it won't stay in the holster, thank god for that thick tire wrap around it as much as it falls, and I sport my leather when at meetings or going out to diner (have to look classy you know)

I also have been using the leather for some time now, I want a new case but can not find one that does it justice. I liked my plastic case but the leather looked nicer for some reason.

I could only find the metal case online. It's a great little case (just remember to add a magnet inside the door) the only problem is talking using the dc, I don't understand why they added a sd card holder in it.

I know that sucks I wish i could find someone that lived close by i could check it out I cant stand not being able to see the screen in the case though so I am thinking its probally not for me. I wish they made a metal case for the 7520 like the 7100s where you could see the screen

Just got the basic RIM leather case this week for the 7520 based on FB here. I'm very happy with it. My BB hasn't fallen out once, an almost daily occurence before.

I wish we could get cases like these http://www.vajacases.com/home_en.html. Would be nice to have one for the weekends, or nicer occasions.
