    Hey I just got it! here is my rant about it I posted in the accessories thread:

    This is a very slim and nice looking holster for the treo.

    However I have a few complaints.
    1. There is a metallic button on the inside of the holster!! What the heck!?? How could they over look this? This little metallic button is totally going to scratch the finish on my 755P. RIght now I put the screen facing out, because better to scratch the back battery cover than to scratch the keys or even worse, the screen.

    2. While the phone is very snug in the case, it is difficult to pry out of the holster smoothly. Maybe time will loosen this thing up, but I wish it had an opening at the bottom where I could push my finger through to help the treo push out of the holster.

    3. There is no cover on top... if one day I find myself upside down, my treo is going to be the first thing that falls out.

    Anyone else have these problems?

    I think the SPE Top pouch: http://store.treocentral.com/content...4-25--2163.htm
    may work better for my needs since it has openings at the bottom to help push the treo out and it also has a magnetic loop closure on top.

    I've been using the SPE P7 side pouch for a while now: http://store.treocentral.com/content...4-120--518.htm
    and didn't realize that a top pouch saves so much more room and gives less of an awkward "buldge" when my shirt is not tucked in.

    the original leather case for the treo 650 is awesome for the 755

    i was thinking of this one, looks allot easier to get phone out... and the clip rotates around

    http://cgi.ebay.com/OEM-Palm-Treo-65...QQcmdZViewItem

    i would suggest putting a BSE on the case just for extra protection not to scratch casing

    i wish the keypad was rubber, what is it with this hard plastic buttons

    I bought this one at Best Buy and have been happy with it.

    I have this one now, and I'm liking it so far. It would be nice if I could use my 2200mAh battery, but it makes one handed retrieval damn near impossible.

    It seems the PALM-branded 755 cases are about the worst designed offerings available. How badly could they have screwed this up - a possible source of income (accessories) has been cut off to them by their own incompetent engineering (cradle, small battery and removal of reset hole). Dummies.
    Well I've had these flexi-skins for awhile now and they haven't stretched or ripped apart. I've only had to take my battery out once to fix my frozen 755P. These flexi-skins are the best silicone skins I've found because of the keyboard cover. Where I work if I didn't have a keyboard cover, my 755P's keyboard would be worn out and filthy by now.

    The clear makes sense but why would you want one that you can't see the keyboard through?!?

    After losing too many pdas and cell phones to "Fort Knox" type belt clips I decided I would never use anything short of a belt loop. This is the case I've used for two years with my 650 and the 755p fits perfect in it. I like that the belt loop lies flat so I can use it in my pocket without being jabbed.

    i had the flexi skin for the treo 700p and loved it, was able to type allot faster with the covering on keyboard.. why do they sell this three pack, the black material should be fine, the layer that goes over keyboard is thin so u can see dialpad.. what would i do with a pink... lol

    I ordered the Seidio Skin Case. I had one for my treo 600 and it was really nice.

    I ordered the Seidio rubberized (not hybrid) case for the 755P with super-extended battery - also known as the 755P BGB (baby got back) model.

    I also got a horizontal, magnetic pouch to hold the encased 755p (since the rubberized case doesn't have a clip). I think it's a good combination that'll result in fewer accidents. There's no metal button to scratch the phone up and the phone will be protected even when it's not on my hip.

    Best of all, it's the best of both worlds in that I don't have to worry about a hinge/door getting in the way of my keys and screen, but I still have protection for when I'm not holding it.

    Now that I think about it, I'm not sure I'd have access to my mini-sd slot. Grr. I hope I'm wrong about that, but I guess I'll just have to suck it up.
    * Stuck patches? Partial erase worked for me.
    * Stuck virtual keyboard? Partial erase AND folder deletion worked for me.

    I just got the rubberized case for my 755 with the BGB lol. I love it, and there is a cutout for the mini sd slot thankfully. I got the vertical magnetic pouch and I like it a lot! The battery rocks bigtime in every roadtest I have put it through so far. My only concern is the rubberized case is not totally closing for me in one corner but it stays on.

    thats what i am worried about, they are so slim and yet made with slimmsy material, being that the treo 755 does not have a reset whole, taking that on and off to take out battery cant be good for that case and not to mention time consuming

    It actually seems sturdy- in some ways more so than the crystal case from Palm. I take my cases off at least once a day for battery swaps, and it looks like it will hold up. You kind of get the hang of removing it with your nail.

    Have you ever used them? All three of them are transparent / you can see the keyboard through all of them. I've traded both the pink and the gray one for two white ones though.

    traded with who? people in the forum or palm will allow u to get three white?

    I traded with other members of TC.

    I'm currently using a formfit case from Fortte. Its a great case, doesn't add much bulk, and I like how there is plastic protecting the entire screen and keyboard.

    I got mine in black

    I am trying to see if it adds allot of bulk to the phone and if it also gets in the way of pressing the cornor keys on the keyboard, i like the cases that are pulled back from the keyboard a bit , like the seidio fit cases

    My accessories finally arrived!

    The rubberized case was kinda disappointing, at first, but it's grown on me quite a bit in the past day. I'm a little concerned about the exposed screen and keyboard when I'm using it or when I put it down, but most cases (that I'm familiar with) that protect the screen and keys tend to pop open when the device falls to the ground, anyway. It's modestly protected, but functional, when it's in my hand. When I'm not using it's, it's completely protected in the side pouch - no seatbelts accidentally calling people or rebooting the phone without my knowledge. It's a really slim case that still feels like the 755p while providing a bit of protection and hardly any additional weight, at all.

    I haven't had much of an opportunity to try out the Seidio extended BGB* battery. It said to charge the battery for at least eight hours before putting it in your phone. Umm... what if you don't have an external charger?

    Luckily, I still have the charger I used with my 650. It docks and charges the Treo and has a compartment for charging an extra battery, simultaneously.

    That seems to have worked just fine for the BGB. Oh, and whomever said that these batteries don't need to be conditioned or whatever - I believe that the documentation that came with the battery said that its capacity would increase after being charged (and depleted, I think) five or six times.

    I also got a headset adapter which allows me to use regular headsets and speaker systems with the Treo (it's hooked to my 650, right now) without having to sacrifice stereo sound.

    So far, I'm pretty pleased with everything. I'm also considering the rubberized case that accommodates the BGB. I'd like some protection for the Treo's increased junk-in-the-trunk, too, so that'll happen some time soon, I think.
