    I have been looking as well with no success.

    None of the IPhone holders work, too small. Please post if anyone finds one!

    Most of the Iphone 3G cases are advertised to work with the Fascinate, for what that is worth. Although you will need to use a holepunch for where the 3.5 plug needs to go through.

    Sports Armband for Samsung Galaxy S Epic 4G Fascinate Phone **See review below by Chingon for this Arkon case - not recommended**

    Dimensions:
    Fascinate = 122.4 x 64.2 x 9.9 mm
    iphone = 115.0 x 61.0 x 11.6mm
    iPhone 3G= 115.5 x 62.1 x 12.3mm
    Iphone4 = 115.2 x 58.7 x 9.3 mm

    Yup, I have seen that one but it looks awful cheap but I guess it would do the job if they never make a custom fit one.

    Ive gone to Best Buy and tried every iphone 3g armband case and it just doesn't fit. The opening is just too small just like you stated in your measurements. Some of them you can get the phone in (with a lot of force) BUT it presses the power and volume buttons constantly. :(

    Got this in the mail the other day. So far i'm not to crazy about it. I don't like the elastic band, it feels like an elastic annoying band. I think i'd rather go a neoprene type band. The phone does fit but just barely. The portion of the case that goes over the top of the phone doesn't fit flush because the phone is big. I don't recommend it.

    I'm going to try a neoprene brand, i'm sure it will feel better.

    Let me see, first post by a brand new member to suggest a product on ebay with a picture of an armband that does not look like it would fit a Fascinate and a second picture of just a Fascinate with no armband. Other items for sale by the same seller show the same armband pitched for several different sized phone models.

    Spam? Prove me wrong with dimensions or a picture of a Fascinate in that armband.

    And it has worked well for me. only gripes I have is that the plastic holder where the armband runs through before doubling back to velco synch it down twists sideways sometimes.

    I doubt it will fit with a case.
