    Question I need a good case for the 8220

    Advertisement



    Hi stackers, I recently picked up another device to support my addiction to the BlackBerry Smartphone drug. This makes a total of 4 active devices and 2 back-ups.

    I, oddly enough, have had the Flip before and discarded it because I didn't like it. Now I do... I know, weird right? I'm getting used to using the suretype again and I'm quite quick on it even though it doesn't have a raised keypad like all the other berrys.

    There are two things that I'm still putting at the top of my con list and for me they're big ones.

    Number one: The screen resolution is so poor that every theme looks cheap and if you build a half decent one like I did... IT LAGS!! And I didn't even use a large amount of graphics or animations. :-S

    Number two (and the most important for me): There is no decent cases!? At least that I could find. Can one of you please provide me with a link or point me towards a decent case? I went to Wireless Wave (TBooth for the Eastern Canadians), which is a local multi carrier dealer, and their selection was limited to one case. Though the case looked decent from outside the box I found that it was actually lined with vinyl and the stitching on the case was poor.

    I'm looking (optimally) for a case that will utilize the profile changing magnets in the device. I'm okay with a holster/clip but the leather holster would be preferable.

    I'm also open to new ideas and suggestions for other types of cases.

    I just know I don't like keeping this thing in my pocket anymore.

    (btw I already have ordered a BSE for my 8220.)

    Thanks guys!

    I actually use the BB OEM leather case that I got for my 81xx Pearls and it works great! It does have the magnets but I don't use that for profiles, so I can only guess it works with the 8220 as well since autolock does work with the magnets.

    www.blackberry.com has the oem cases in different colors - they use the magnet/sleep feature. The only problem I can think of is when I had a full BSE on my curve, taking it in and out of the case made the edges on the bse come up a lot sooner than they should have.
    Proof of absence is not absence of proof.

    I actually love your themes Cherri! I'm thinking it may not be the themes as much as the OS... Another subject I guess but it gets frustrating.

    Also, the Rogers flips don't come with OEM cases. I prefer the OEM and would love it if they did. It's just like the problem I'm having with my 8900 right now too. It only came with a sleeve which is useless to me. I need a hip case!
