Cover or holster

Nimdae

I got a leather cover for my z520a so that I could carry this outside of my pocket (you know, the whole pictures of the inside of your pocket showing up on your phone) and the leather case I got from Cingular really sucks. Anyone have recommendations on a better cover or other type of holster? Just judging by this cover alone (I haven't used any others), it's almost as though the design of the phone does not facilitate a leather cover at all. It feels like this one may fall apart soon, either with the strap going over the antenna (which seems completely out of place in the first place) or the plastic swivel coming out of the soft leather pocket on the back.

That sucks. I just ordered one from ebay. You should have posted this 2 days ago. The only other thing is a pouch or a clip holster where the phone just clips on to it. The problem with the latter is that the phone scratches very easily so if you rub against anything, your phone is screwed.

Well, any phone will be easily scratchable. My last phone came with the plastic clip and I was actually quite happy with it. At least with this phone, it has interchangable covers. I may go ahead and get me a clip style holster.

I am not talking about the interchangable covers, I am talking about the clear screen cover. I just got my cellphone case. I like it. It locks at different angles. Not bad for $15 on ebay. At stores they wanted the same for just a clip holster.

I got that at the cingular store during their christmas sale. Trust me, it's not very good. The swivel has come loose in the cover (the glue didn't stick well, I guess) and is pulling on the soft outer leather. The hole that it pokes through is stretched and I fear it will eventually come out. Also, the littls trap that pulls over the "wing spoiler" antenna seems awkward/out of place.

I'm awaiting the arrival of my plastic clip.

Well, the swivel finally came out on my leather case. Pretty good timing though, because my plastic holster came in today as well. So far I like it. I can see a proble with possibly the antenna being worn where it clips on, but other than that it feels sturdy and feels like it'll get the job done to my satisfaction.

You are right Nimdae. At first the case was fine. But I do a lot of manual work on the weekends and the phone moves a lot and I clip unclip alot. After 2 weeks of abuse, the backing starting coming off. The glue sucks. I did what every normal, strong, full of testosterone man would do, I pulled my sewing kit out and sew around the case's back to pull the clip thing together to the backing. I did a good job if I may say so. If people dont like to sew, dont get the case cover, get the holster.
