    Case for 8700

    Advertisement



    I need to purchase a case for my 8700, because unless Cingular does something silly bill-wise, I'm keeping it.

    I was originally looking at the Vaja cases that are "form fitting". I was curious - does anyone have a case that flips open? For my ipod and palm, I was always partial to flip cases, but it seems as if it would sort of be uncomfortable or get in the way with the BB as a phone.

    The other option is a slip-case, but I know I'd never be able to find it in my purse in time, plus pull it out of a case, without missing the call. Things get buried in the bottom of my purse when I least expect it.

    I'm also not really interested in a holster, since I have no intention of ever wearing the thing and I'd worry about it disappearing if I hooked it to my purse.

    Thanks for your thoughts!

    Thumbs up Re: Case for 8700

    But is the flip case uncomfortable when using it as a phone?

    Actually, I rather like the one your gf uses. There are also some nifty ones on that site - in pretty colors of course - but none mention that they fit the 8700. Hmmm.

    Re: Case for 8700

    After some poking around, I discovered that Fortte is actually Bellagio. My Palm case is a Bellagio that I absolutely love. Anyway, I ordered their open-face case for the 8700. I know it doesn't have the magnet, etc, etc, but we'll see. With the Pinstack discount, it was a decent price (thanks Hayden!) and I also got to order it in the same lovely navy leather as my Palm case.
    We'll see how I like it - I may switch to a vertical pouch later on. I'm so peculiar about my gadget cases. If I could find one in pink for the 8700 ...

    Re: Case for 8700

    I plan on purchasing the following items later today:

    http://www.blackberrysource.com/stor...g.asp?item=200 BlackBerry 7105t Open Face Case

    http://www.blackberrysource.com/stor...g.asp?item=262 BlackBerry 7105t eGrips Kit

    http://www.blackberrysource.com/stor...g.asp?item=242 Screenguardz for BlackBerry 7105t

    What I have a question about is if the screenguardz and eGrips kit will also work with my 7100t. They look identical but each one specifies a different device. What I mean is there is a set of screenguardz for the 7100t and 7105t (same thing with the eGrips). Will the ones for the 7105t work on BOTH devices?

    Wrt, excellent choice. I am ordering the open face case for my 7105T. I am also getting a screen protector added (I tend to get my screens dirty and scratch them which hasn't been an issue with the 7105t yet).
