    Here is a picture of a soft case I purchased from ebay. I don't carry a wallet and have not done so for about 4 years because my previous phone cases had card holders. I made a cut out to insert my license ID card and my favorite credit card. I am hoping that a reputable case manufacturer makes a case for the Classic with card holder. Then again that is why I made mine with an exacto knife

    What a good idea just carry 1 credit card and you drivers license.

    I am still banking on that one manufacturer who will step up and make this style case for the Classic

    Case just came in and I must say I'm quite pleased with it. Reminds me of the glossy barely there case I had for my Z10 except this is not glossy which is a good thing. Has a good amount of protection on the phone and feels very solid and sturdy in hand. Money well spent IMO, which wasn't much.

    Are you referring to the Incipio Shine case?

    No I was referring to the Nillkin case I posted about in an earlier post.

    Right. I had to go back a few posts...my fault. How is the feel of the case?

    All good no worries. The case has the same spotted back as the classics except that it's matte. Feels really nice and smooth in the hand with good grip all around. I like the matte feel it gives which makes it dust-proof as well.

    I bought the official soft shell case and although it feels nice, as mentioned before it is very hard to press the button on the top of the phone and also the edge is slightly raised on the front meaning it interferes with you pressing the keys on the outer edges, not a lot but enough to annoy. I then went for an unofficial pouch on eBay for 6 but when it came it was that tight I struggled to get the phone more than half way in, and If I did force it in it would press the side buttons,the seller was trying to tell me that it's new and will loosen but it ain't going to loosen that much so that's going back! I have now ordered the official pouch, I just hope that isn't too tight a fit as well as I remember my bold official case being quite tight. That Nillkin case looks quite good so may go for that if the pouch is no good, I have seen their tempered glass screen protectors appearing on eBay too, I am still running with the protector it came with as the official Bb protector doesn't line up well with the screen.

    Yeah my nillkin case came with a screen protector as well. I haven't used it yet bc I'm saving it for a white classic. What I like about their screen protector is that it's similar to the factory-installed screen plastic that BlackBerry has on brand new phones, meaning that it actually covers the whole screen and has accurate cut-outs for the speaker/proximity sensor/led.

    On another thread I asked whether the OEM soft shell would fit with the swivel holster as it does with the Q10 versions, but it seems no one has tried yet. I find the OEM soft shell does not provide sufficient protection, but combined with a holster can do the job.

    It is regrettable that BlackBerry has not made available a hard shell for the Classic, it would seem an obvious option for many. So far, I've had excellent experience with the Q5, Q10 and Z30 (transform) OEM hard cases.

    Anyway, as a provisional measure I got a couple of accessories for my mother's Classic. A Mobo generic large pouch together with this silicone case sold by Amazon, which also includes a screen protector: http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00P7U04G...UvbUpU11271616

    I'm not sure yet how well the combination works, as the naked Classic fits well inside the pouch, but the silicone case is yet to arrive. I'll inquire with my mom once she gets it (she lives abroad) and report back.

    I have the same silicone case from Amazon on my wife's Classic, as a stop gap until Seidio releases their Surface case. The Amazon case is actually quite nice - won't offer much in the way of drop protection, but is has a very nice non-slip surface which should help to prevent dropping. And, it fits very well and looks very nice as well.

    Update: got my official BB leather pouch today and it is really nice, good quality leather, the fit is great, not too tight but still secure and the phone automatically switches on/off as you put it in and out of the pouch. Got it for 12.85 off eBay, half the RRP!

    I rock the white leather on the black Classic, which I think looks the business. What do you think?

    Looks very Classy!

    If I had a Classic, I'd definitely use this type of pouch and rock the device naked. It brings back fond memories of the 9700 and 9900 Bold days.

    I would actually like to see an official OEM pouch for the Passport. It's too bad my mom is not fond of these type of pouches, as she is the one rocking the Classic. Oh well, guess I'll just have to hope and wait for BlackBerry to launch a Passport version!

    I ordered a Seidio SURFACE case for my wife's Classic yesterday - it has already shipped - and yes, the opening on the back only covers the camera and flash.

    I ordered the black version - it is also available in red, blue and gold.

    For those in the UK the Nillkin case featured earlier in the thread is now on amazon listed as the 'MYLB hard skin', only a fiver which seems good value....
