    What is the correct way to remove 8700 c from holster? Do you push in slightly or push the side to twist out?

    As I am sure you have figured out, the stock holsters for the 8700's are terrible. However (I don't know if this was in the book, I didn't look), I did see someone with an 8700 in their holster the other day, and the keys and screen were facing the towards the inside, which when I started to think about it, are probably the correct way (Like I have said before, I am a guy and I don't follow directions/instructions well). I doubt there is really a correct way. I went out and bought a different case for the 8700 just because I hated the original holster (And thought it didn't work ) so I just grab it from the top with my thumb and middle finger and flip it out to look at it. I know one of these days soon its going to slip out of my hand, then I'll really be P.O'd at myself. As for the stock holster, I did it the same way.

    I have the leather holster and I grab mine with thumb and index finger, then palm it as it is released from the holster. I wear it on my left side, although I'm right-handed. It feels natural and secure. I better not drop mine!

    Re: correct way to remove bb from holster

    I keep mine just in front of my right hip. I use the hard holster that came with my 8700. I keep it turned so the top of the BB is facing my crotch. It's slightly easier to grab it with my thumb on top and the rest of my hand on the bottom, and just slide it out sideways. It's much more comfortable when sitting down and standing, seems not to stick out as much, and it never gets caught on things like the vertical pouch of my 7100.

    It definitely should be face in. The area around the space bar has a sensor to detect the magnet in the holster to disable the keypad, shut off the screen, and to switch the device to its holstered profile. It can't detect the magnet if you holster it with the face out. On top of that, with the device facing out your screen isn't protected and your shift keys will end up badly scratched over time.

    Egrips on the battery door will really help with unholstering the Blackberry.

    keys and screen were facing the towards the inside is correct, Helps procets the screen from getting all messed up. No matter if you pull it up or down, do it more than 3 times in a row than your playing with it. .

    The guy I bought my 7290 from was putting it in the holster with the face outside, the blue silver case was severely scratched up because of it I ordered a black case from bbrepairshop. I don't think he ever realized he was putting it in the holster backwards.

    I pull my 7100t out of its case with my thumb, index and middle finger then let it slide into the palm of whichever hand happens to land on it when it vibrates LOL I don't think there's a set way as long as you don't drop it. I put my 7100t in the OEM case face in as this activates the sleeper magnet. With my open face case and my 7105t, the only way is face out.

    Exactly LOL Just as long as you don't drop your 'Berry, it's really a user preference

    Re: correct way to remove bb from holster

    I find wearing mine on the left side very good for riding in the car (since I'm usually the driver). The device is clear of the seat belt and easy to reach with my left hand.

    It's interesting that a number of us dexters prefer to handle the sheathed BB sinister! More interesting is that I've been left-eyed most of my life. I think I'm left-eye dominant. When I used a surveyors transit (and theodolite), I always used my left eye. I also prefer to shoot left-handed, although most weapons are for dexters, so I accommodate.

    Curiouser and curiouser...

    I'm right handed and I wear the 8700c on my left mainly because of my car.
