Default A better case for the 7100!!!

Please Login to Remove!

I was cleaning out a drawer and found a horizontal pouch that I used to carry an old Nokia phone in. I tried my 7100 and it fits like a glove. As a bonus, I can see the status light and the magnets seem to trigger the auto on/off features of the phone.

I'm a big fan of these "horizontal pouches". They're great for anyone with lovehandles as they more or less follow you're belt and don't rub the old spare tire. This one has a flap over the top and almost completely covers the phone, so you can't beat up the exposed part that sticks out of the standard case.

I bought mine at a kiosk in the mall a couple of years ago. As best I can tell, this is the same model:

I'm definitely using this from now on.

Now, if I could only find a better way to carry my HS850....

Problem you might run into is this: Does your new found case auto off your BB?

Yep!

If I didn't tell you otherwise, you would swear that this case was custom made for the BB7100.

Nice but not way to carry it except in a purse or bulging in your pocket.

I bought mine at a mall for about $20. I'm not sure if the ones on that website are identical to mine or not. They are the same brand and look to be the same, but you never know.
