    Hey everyone. I need some help with cases. Ive seen a couple on ebay, amazon, some online stores, but i can never find a review. I dont know if they will fit snug or not. Im going for more of a silicon plastic case, i dont need a screen protector i got one. Just the case, thanks. So any recommendations?

    I live in BC so not sure where you are but...

    I bought a case at the local mall in a cell phone kiosk vendor in the mall. The Rogers and Telus stores in the mall did not have anything good.

    I bought a case by Cellet. It is a black leather pouch style case with a removable clip on/off belt clip. I have the belt clip off and use it as a pouch case and put it in my pocket. It is a nice snug fit and protects the phone.

    It was the only one I found that was long enough to cover the X10. Other cases only covered about 80-90% of the X10.

    I can find cellet on the internet and found cases very similar to the one I have. Unfortunately I do not have a model number/name.

    Suggest you try the local cell phone kiosk in a mall. I am very happy with my case.

    Cheers

    Mitek, I sent you a Private Message with a couple of links to pictures and web page of the case similar to the one I have.

    Thx for the help but im looking for more of a silicon/plastic case. The leather ones look too bulky to carry in my pocket.

    Also i ordered an invisible sheild as a screen protector. Ive heard good and bad things about it. Got an opinion on it.

    As for where im from. Im from Toronto, Ontario amd using Rogers as a provider.

    Thanks for the replies and help.

    Sorry, no opinion on a shield other than I did not have much luck with them when I had my BB Storm. Always seemed to get air bubbles under them. They look fine when the screen is on but when it is off you can see the bubbles and they drove me nuts. Mind you I installed it myself for likely operator error. :D

    I heard that you should in fact do it yourself as some stores dont know what they are doing anf only damage your phone. Ive read they were pretty hard to put on, but if done right totally worth it. I also heard it had this "tacky" feel to it with and orange peel effect to it. So lets hope i like it.

    I'm not sure about Rogers but, my X10 came with a screen protector already on and from what I read before hand, some people didn't even know theres had one on till about 3-4 weeks later. I wasn't sure at first but, it does, fits perfect :). Which is great, as I also wasn't allowed to touch my phone till I had a screen protector on (partners rules, just like she's hardly touched her Desire because of no case and even worse when there was no screen protector).

    Other regions are also getting one in the box (UK unbranded, I didnt). I personally, would recommend a screen protector though. I haven't tried the Shield, mainly due to the price, I'd like one but, yeah, too much. I don't do cheap screen protectors, they have to be decent (id rather pay

    I don't believe my phone came with a screen protector. I'm looking at it right now and it looks like ithas some sort of layer on it but i dont think its a screen protector. As for the case, I saw that one on ebay and thought it wouldn't fit. Ive seen cases for $18 so when I saw that one, approximatelly $6 I thought there must be something wrong with it. I guess ill order that one and see how it is. As for screen protector ill post here and tell you how it is.

    Thanks for the help you two.

    Like I said, i didnt think it did either. Even had an old iPhone one on till the ones I ordered came :eek:. But, when my partner was out, I decided to investigate and, you can't really tell except if you look really hard at the corners of the screen. Even then I wasn't sure so tried peeling it away...needless to say, it did. And, it is a good screen protector, I managed to put it back down (i only peeled it a couple of millimeters) and it stuck right back down, no bubbles or nothing :D.

    I have to admit, I didnt think about it not fitting but, it fits perfectly. I have seen some for more, well the one I linked to after I found the one I bought, the link to that wasnt working, was more than twice as much as I paid and probably is just the same. Tbh from the pic, it doesnt look as good quality. I just had a few open and decided on the one that looked best. Some do look cheap and you can tell. And even though I haven't tried it, i'd personally stay away from the ones which cover the buttons as well. They might fit but, the ones I've seen look really, really cheap quality and tacky as well.

    I'd personally, go for the last one. I'm not completely sure about the rubberized ones, all the ones I've seen, look much cheaper quality than the last one. Also you can still see the phone under it, which I like.
    And on a personal note, I'm not sure about the rubberized effect/feeling. The last one, is rubber but, it looks like the one I've got, the others look like, they'd attract fluff like a proper silicon case.

    I'm using the last one as well. Works great!
    and I just noticed that my x10 has a screen protector already on it. I can see some sort of extra film layer around the edges.

    I'm just waiting for otterbox to come out with a case. I hope its soon

    Eh, neither link works for me, said the item was deleted :(. Although just from the titles of them, I can imagine the second one will be of better quality :). Will have to let us know when ya get em :).

    K, let me try again.

    Black Rubberized Hard Case for Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 on eBay.ca (item 180512422384 end time 24-Jul-10 16:14:59 EDT)

    Charcoal Black Soft Gel Skin Case Cover for Xperia X10 on eBay.ca (item 170491081023 end time 24-Jul-10 16:17:20 EDT)

    If the links still don't work, the seller is bestbuy.99

    I received both of them the other day. Both are nice, but I really like the thin hard case. It is good quality for the price and fits snug. The only problem is that it's a pain to take apart, for fear of breaking the hinges.

    Would definitely recommend :D

    The first one?

    The second link is the exact same one I have :D. I love it :). Is the other more protective then? I'd be scared of breaking the hinges on it though lol :eek:. I already take the cover off too much apparently *rolleyes*.

    Yeah the first one is a pain to pull apart. I've had cases like these before and break every single one. I think I'm just gonna leave this one on until I absolutely need to take it off. It's harder, so I think it offers more protection and it actually looks nicer.

    And believe it or not, it's thinner than the soft rubber case.

    Hmm, really? Might see if I can spring to one of them as well :p. Once I get paid anyway. I was told I couldnt have a blue case, so I'll try a new black case lol :p. Although we've all just got the silicon gel case and I do love mine. But, I'm always up for having another case lol.

    Does fluff etc stick to it? As some of the ones I've seen look like it would, that one doesnt look too bad though compared to others like that I've seen :).
