    It's frustrating to me, .
    I don't like how my fingers won't fit in to press the 4 main button and the 5 way navigational button. I want to cut the bottom of it off, but don't have a power tool. I would get creative and just put a little work into it, but the door of the case seems somewhat flimsy and loose. I don't like the window of the case either. Seems like it's be much more functional if the window was not there. How did some of you guys manage to take it off?

    I customized my innopocket. check it

    also once it is closed it's a lot less flimsy. I put a piece of super adhesive tape in the corner to keep it shut should it fall. Now it works great. I don't need to touch the screen(90% of the time) with the 5 way nav.

    I got the window off. I really want to take off this bottom, so I can use the keyboard, then I'll be somewhat happy.

    well, I went to work with a knife and scissors, believe it or not and am somewhat happy with the outcome. Here are the pics, nothing special.
    I wish it would have been manufactured with a cut out for the keyboard, therefore leaving a trim around the keyboard.

    If you're going that far, why not just take the door off the front completely?

    Your idea of removing the bottom half was cool to duplicate the other case.

    and removing the window is a separate good idea for those needing touch access that aren't likely to smash the screen on something....

    but both at the same time have just weekened that door so much that it's going to flex a lot and, my guess, won't stay closed after a day or so.


    If you're not that likely to smash the front of the treo while carrying it on your belt, then you could just take the door off and have FULL access to the front of it. For people like me though, I need as much of my treo covered any time it's on my belt so that I don't smash anything.

    I have an Innopocket case also for my T650. At first I popped out the plastic window, which was an improvement for me for ease of use. Then I wanted a slimmer profile to fit my pance pocket better, so I ended up taking the entire front lid off. It's easy to do, simply take a paperclip and poke out the metal pin from the hinge. Now my Treo is only protected by the bottom portion of the case. I also use a screen protector from TreoCentral. -Casey.

    Wow! Am I the only one who bought this case to actually protect the screen and keyboard? I mean that's the reason that I bought a hard metal protective case. It seems that you folks would have better spent money on one of those Blackberry type snap in belt holsters.

    Not true, works just fine.
    I actually bought the case mainly for looks, protection would just be an added bonus, but the functionality of my treo was limited and I was greatly inconvenienced with having to open up the case to type. I wasn't aware it had a window when I bought it, so taking that off was not a problem. Also, now I don't have to worry about inserting my finger into the small slot to press the phone, home, or end buttons.
