    Hello

    I've had my 650 for about one month - carrying it in a case from covertec - Tréo 600-650 horizontal case

    Despite using it for just some weeks I have experienced:
    - the phone falling out of the case (magnetic closure opens too easy)
    - the case falling of my belt.
    (...a possible cause for this could of cause be the size of my belly )

    The risk of breaking the phone causes me to not carrying my 650 when working in my garden, sporting etc....


    Here is what I am looking for (...I've tried searching the forum):
    - a horisontal leather case equipped with a "hard to open" mechanism - ie velcro
    - a solution to attach the case to my belt which prevents the case from being skipped off - ie when giong in and out of my car. It could possibly be some sort of leather strap, but it has to "surrond" the belt. A traditional belt clip would not be sufficient.

    I have searched for a case like this on the internet too, but has not yet found a case which fit my needs...

    Any suggestions...?

    The Nutshell offers all of your attachment solutions, but you'll have to go to their website - TC only offers one style. However it doesn't offer a horizontal manuver. But you can put the phone on your tail bone and forget about it. Also, look into small nylon camera cases at your local best buy. There are a few that fit the T650 perfect and have a belt loop.

    Also try this... better than the camera case idea.

    How about the Nutshell model that has a "belt-thru leather loop" instead of the clip, with a velcro closure tab?

    I appreciate your responce.

    Have to take a look at the Nutshell case. This is the case you are reffering to - isn't it?

    By the way - any opinions on this case? TreoCentral P6 Pouch Case for Treo 600/650
    I wonder how tight the magnetic closure is?

    Definitely go to Tuff-as-nuts and be SURE to order the T650 case not the T600.

    Nutshell. I love mine. I thought about a clip horizontal case before, but I like the feeling it is secured on my belt and can't unclip. And having to unbelt to take it off and on isn't really much of a problem.

    How about losing some weight?

    Somebody - I'm trying to order one from "tuff-as-nuts.com".

    Pls tell me what a "Tab Top" is - maybe the same as a "security flap" to secure the device? The velcro lock...

    Thank for the link to Expansys! Looks like a great site to buy cool unlocked phones!
    HP has officially ruined it's own platform and kicked webOS loyalists and early TouchPad adopters to the curb. You think after you drop it like a hot potato and mention it made no money and is costing you money, anyone else wants it??? Way to go HP!!

    And some people are fools to keep believing their hype. HP has shown they will throw webOS under the bus and people are still having faith in them??? News flash: if it's own company won't stand behind it, it's finished!

    P6 Pouch case is AWESOME. Magnets are very strong and it clips to the belt TIGHTLY. Review to come in a couple of weeks. For 19.95 you can't go wrong.

    The tab top is the velcro flap that latches over the phone. You might as well get the tab top because you can always tuck it out of the way if your going to be pulling your phone out alot. The only time I use my velcro tab is when jogging.

    I love the Nutshell, heres my review starting on 4-4-05 Nutshell review
    Just incase you dont read the whole thread, they fixed the bump on the inside.

    Thanks for the response. I wondered what the Tab Top was because by the picture of the case showing this Tab Top it was called "security flap" (or something like that...)

    Fantastic review and presentation. Very informative.
    Just ordered a tanned brown one with a belt loop for myselves. (Thought the crocodile leather could be to feminine )
