    Hi All,

    What is your favorite case for the 8700 and why? Have you found the "perfect" case?

    I actually dont carry mine in a case, but i used to love my plastic holster for the 7290...and whilst the case that comes in the box of the 8700...I havent ever used it......

    I used that "new look" but as much as i love the BB - i like the used look now

    When I had an 8700, I really liked the plastic holster cases from Seidio.

    ..this case:


    Mainly because of the 'sleep' option and it can be on my waist horizontally, or vertically...

    Thanks so very much...for now I'm looking for a leather case. Navilyn, where is yours from? I don't remember seeing it anywhere.
    Thanks in advance...

    You can get it from the T-Mobile website, $24.99. Or even from a local T-Mobile shop...

    When you talk of the plastic case, are you talking about the 'default' one?



    I like this one, but since I work in I.T. am always under someone's desk, and am affraid that it will fall out, and break. Thus I use my trusty T-Mobile leather one. Now, when am at home, I use the plastic one...

    Nav - That is the one, but i had it with the 7290...and it never once fell out..

    You get used to it....but the 8700 does seem more fragile!


    I havent seen one in the UK..

    Sleeper magnet...I'm assuming the plastic holster that came with the 8700 has the sleep magnet function - anyone know for sure?

    Thanks in advance.

    The one I have in the photo has a 'sleeper magnet', and it works too...

    The 8700 plastic case does have the sleeper magnet, but I did not feel that it held my BB secure enough. I went with one from Seidio, and never thought twice about having my berry fall out.

    Thanks, Kasper. For some reason the Seidio holster was a bit bulky for me. I'm still looking for very slim but secure. I had heard that the 8700 holster wasn't very secure...Still on the hunt

    I got this and really like it.
    Cons: Fixed clip - doesn't swivel
    No magnet for sleep activation

    Pro: Easy to insert and remove BB
    Slim form factor
    Well made

    Apparently, they have been selling like hot cakes because several sites that had them in stock, are now out of them.
