    Re: 8100 leather case

    I am just using the leather pouch that Cingular had for the 8700's. It works for me. Puts it into sleep mode.

    Obviously the device is a little small and doesn't go all the way to the sides, but the pouch is stiff enough to hold it in there firmly.

    Re: 8100 leather case

    yeah i also have the pouch for the 7105t, but it's too loose for me, im afraid it'll hop out...and the sleep mode doesnt work for me so i still have to press and hold the * key to lock the keyboard before i put it in...i'm probably being really picky considering you have it in the 8700 pouch and that's wider than the 7105t and you have no probs with it... lol

    I'm waiting for vaja to make one-I bought the t-mo case-it's too snug, and the big clunky magnetic enclosure bangs the phone every time I take it out. If you've never seen vaja cases, check them out here: http://www.vajacases.com. They're really expensive, but they're beautiful and work great! I had a t65 for my treo 650.

    You're right! I've had a vaja case before and I must say that it is definitely worth the money.

    Tmobile has a leather case that works very well .I have one ,just put your 8100 in upside down face in toward your body .screen light goes off immediately,also good when retrieving phone from case by gripping both sides without touching the convenience buttons ,and they cost only $20.00.

    I, as well as some others, have mentioned the T-Mobile case in another thread on cases for 8100.

    harryheat2,

    I do the same thing with the TMobile case and my Pearl...upside down and facing inward.

    It's also usefull as a desk stand...sort of....when at work, I take the Pearl out of the case, fold the flap into the case, then lay the Pearl on top to trigger sleep mode.

    Please forgive this question but what exactly about the case puts the BB in sleep mode? And does this apply to all BB?

    The magnet on the case puts it in sleep mode. I think this applies to most BB's...

    Thats what I am waiting on as well, it is the only case that I think will be sexy enough for my sexy pearl. As a matter of fact I sent them an email about it yesterday.

    Did you get a response? I emailed them the day I picked up my pearl (the day they came out). Vaja emailed me that they weren't sure if they were going to make one-have you heard anything different (I hope)?

    They're nice, but they add a lot of bulk-One of the reasons why Vaja is son nice-they don't add much to the device.
