Default Help Decide the Blackberry Case

Please Login to Remove!

I am trying to get a case for my Tmobile 7230. Could anyone who has the experience help me decide which one of the following three to go with?


Leather case 1
http://www.eaccess-estore.com/store/catalog.asp?item=94


Leather case 2
http://www.eaccess-estore.com/store/catalog.asp?item=77


Leather Holster
http://www.eaccess-estore.com/store/catalog.asp?item=75

Is the leather case with belt clip good or the leather holster good?


Any sorts of comparisons would be great appreciated.

I've not used any, but I like the first one myself If it's got a magnet like the clip, I just might pick one up myself.

My wife had option one with her 7280 as useful as it was the flip was more of a pain then anything else. She ended up purchasing option three, great protection and the swivel is a nice as well.

Thanks, Finch. That is very helpful... Only practical experience will tell which one is better. I think I will go with your suggestion.

My pleasure, the Blackberry issued cases also auto off the Blackberry when holstered which some third party cases don't do.

I have the blackberry made case that looks like the 3rd one and I love it... No scratches and it never drops the BB...

You may want to check this one out:

It ain't perfect but it works for me. It covers the keyboard and LED screen- that's plenty. Plus it's see-thru and not too expensive.

Well, I ordered the leather pouch, did not like it, returned. And ended it up with Piel Frama case:

I love it. It is the best made case, precision cut and great quality leather. The belt clip is detatchable. I can have the case on while browsing the handheld, I can even talk with the case on which you cannot do it with pouch.

I think the leather pouch would have been my pic as well... How bulky is the Piel Frama case, it sure looks like a nice case.

I have to as much as I really don't care for the flip cases, this one looks rather stylish, sleek and really well crafted. Nice find!

How do you get the Piel Frama to go on standby like the OEM holster?
