Default Verizon 7130e Holster Cases

Please Login to Remove!

So I order a horizontal holster case that was reported to be compatible with the sleep function; guess what...the magnets are not aligned properly and the sleep function is not activated.

I am looking for a horizontal case that does not have one of those annoying plastic clips. What options are out there?

The case that did not work was the Pro Series Ultima Case.

No I am looking for a horizontal case that has somesort of a swivel belt attachement. It would seem that the magnets in the 7130e are in a differnet location then other 7100 series BB's. Therefore some of the older cases are not going to work.

I don't think so. Please correct me if I am wrong, but from what I know, the 7130e OEM case is the same across the entire 7100 series.

Yes, I have two of them - one from my 7100t and now a duplicate from the 7130e. They are both crap, I will mail them to anyone interested. Just pay shipping and handling and you can have them.

Crap guys, I just sent an email to vaja cases, asking them if they planned to make a case for the 7130e, here is their response:

We dont have plans to develop cases for that device.
Anyway, we really appreciate your interest in our products.


Best regards,

Here's another prospect for the 7130e. Has anyone dealt with this company before? Are their products of good quality?

Well, judging from the original poster of this thread, I would say it's crap.

I have the case from verizon. It is a nice holster and the magnets are aligned and you can swivel it horizontal. For 19.99, I think it is definately worth it.

It looks nice. I ordered the swivel leather clip w/magnetic flap from shopblackerry.com If I don't like it I may get the VZW one.

Did you order online from VZW or did you find it in their stores? How's the fit? The RIM OEM cases have elastic which make in/out very easy after break in.

I wish Vaja would make a case for this. They have one for the 7105t. Vaja's quality is unparalleled.

The fit is great. Definately snug at first but it does have elastic on the side and after it breaks in, it is snug enough to hold the BB securely, but loose enogh to allow easy access.

I bought it in the store last week when I bought the 7130.

Default Canvas 7130e Case Review

I just wanted to report that I have received the canvas holster for the 7130 from smartphone depot (http://store.bizshopr.com/wso441776.html) and so far I think it's a keeper.

It seems to be fairly well made. All stitching is tight, and the elastic sides keep the phone secure while providing access to the usb charging port and scroll wheel for silencing calls. The piping around the case is also very sturdy and extends 1/8" to further potect the phone. It also supports the sleeper function in both directions, screen facing in and out and the inside is felt lined to minimize scratches to the screen. It also has a nice flap with magnet closure to protect the top portion of the unit.

My only gripe would be the size of the swivel clip. Because the case is designed to release from the clip, it is somewhat large. However, the fact that the clip is removable could also be considered a positive as it can easily be removed when you want to slide it in your pocket. Overall I give it an 8/10. If the clip was a tad bit smaller I would have given it a 9/10. BTW I rarely rate something perfect.

But for $12, I think it was a nice cheap replacement to the OEM case which I would rate a 4/10.

Are we talking about the same case?

http://www.verizonwireless.com/b2c/s...essoryId=20002

This is the case shown on the VZW site.

I just got the OEM swivel lether case from shopblackberry.com for the 7130. Has nice, standard RIM swivel clip which fits belts nicely. I like the flip magnetic cover. Has elastic sides and it fits sung.

To bad it doesn't have an "antenna hole" so we can use it for the the 7100i.... The search goes on......
