    Curious if anyone knows if there was ever an aftermarket leather battery door (Not flip cover) created for the z30 like the one that was made for the z10?

    The BlackBerry Flip Case has a leather cover, and a back that replaces the battery cover on the back.

    I thought the same thing, but there would be no way to get it cut just right where the flip meets the battery door. Its a shame someone hasn't made one yet.

    Go to this Site.
    Noreve.comm and they can take the leather flip case and not put the flip on it. I contacted them and they said use this code when ordering. "Make a 22232TE1/f". Seen with Cynthia"

    I'm thing about this

    I just have to smooth out the edges a bit. It's heavier than the original cover though. And that glue is on there pretty damn good...lol....ur right, I'm surprised no one has come up with it as of yet. I contacted the company in China that dies the one for the z10 and they said they don't make it.

    You need to find a way to cut the leather straight and with no rough edges

    Yeah, I have a tool that smoothes edges out. I don't know where ur from, but it's a dremel..it's a multi use tool for cutting, edging, etc....let's see what I can do today.

    Ah, ok...yeah, so u know what it is. hopefully I can smooth out the edges. It's not that bad right now if I use it that way....and I'm not much of a handyman, so I'll see what I can do. I may just wind up leaving it as is......

    I sure like how it looks. You might find a leather shop and ask them what you can use to cut it perfect and set up a little side business and I am sure you could sell many

    OK, used the dremel to smooth it out a bit more. Didn't want to over do it and scuff the cover itself. This is the final look. It's not perfect, but it gives it a classy look and of course an original look since these covers aren't made for the z30. I like it as well because it adds more protection to the camera lens. It's a bit more heavy but it feels good.

    I like the fact that it protects the camera more as well. It is a bit heavier than the regular battery cover, don't you think? But I think it is still sleek, like the 9700 and 9000.
