    Well today I totally scraped the holster that came with the BB (luckily it was just the holster and not the BB itself) and that reaffirmed my belief that I need a CASE for my BB. Is there a store that anyone can recommend so that I can buy one... I'd like to be able to check it out in person...

    Otherwise, is there any case that you all recommend? I know there was a thread, I'll go look for it when I get a chance... other than that, I just want it to be a case that can sit on my hip, will have that magnet so that it'll put my BB to sleep... and then maybe have a little magnetic flap on top so that it won't fall out...

    I think I saw one at Best Buy but I didn't know how good it was so I didn't buy it.

    Nav has a good case, but ironically at lunch today i saw a nice case. Although not OEM Blackberry, the 8700 fitted well...

    Let me find a picture....

    Why not go to the BB store direct?

    Do the cases need to fit the 8703e specifically or will cases for other models work too... and if so, which ones?

    Oh and where can I find a BB direct?

    Yeah I am an 8703e user, I guess I should've been more specific.

    What's the difference between OEM and Nav?

    Okay I looked at the link... the cases don't have a belt clip.

    Nav = Navilyn (Mod on here)
    OEM = Official Branded Merchandise

    And the case do have belt clips. Also look under the 8700f/g/v models, they will fit...

    Oh they will fit? Because I kind of like that Napa Leather Vertical Pouch that someone mentioned on a 8700f (I think) thread... I wonder if they have any at a Tmobile kiosk or something...

    The "magnetic" case that both closes magnetically, and puts the phone in standby automatically when holstered has been great. It lists for $29.99 unfortunately. Although I'm using the 8130, I found mine at an AT&T store. I just didn't want to have a new phone, and wait days or more to get a case.

    So you got a case for a Pearl 1 (8100 model sold by AT&T) and it works for your Pearl 2 (8130)?
    I have a skin and a holster but am thinking of getting an OEM leather holster as well. Although I like how small it is without anything on it there are usually so many finger prints in a short amount of time that I put the skin back on.
    This is generally why I wind up with 5 cases...

    I didn't know it was for a Pearl 1, but it works fine! The problem I find with the Pearl is that the side buttons are often pushed when taking it out of a case. But I need a case on my belt, and this one was the best I saw.
