Simple top pouch belt case??
How come i cant seem to find a decent looking top pouch case? I like the look of the Nutshell .. but $50 is too steep. Most cases are cheap and junky looking... or odd colors.. or holsters with the clip in kind (which i dont trust)
I cant believe apple doesnt make a simple top case with an apple logo?
I have one like this for my BB

I totally agree with you. I loved my case for my BlackBerry when I had it. I have even gone so far as to see if my iPhone 4 will fit in one of the BB cases. Of course I would figure out a way to cover up the BB logo. I need one that my iP4 plus my bumper will fit in.

Sure you want to use a case like that, because if you drop that iPhone 4S and you don't have Apple Care +, you are SOL. I met a young lady who has a 4S and didn't bother with Applecare or Any insurance. She has it in the Otterbox Commuter case, but one slip to the front and that screen is broken.

Irregardless, what case you choose to use and the reasons you choose to use it is up to you. I hope whatever you choose works well for you.

The problem I see with most, if not all, of the top pouch cases for the iPhone is that the belt clip is usually just a slip kind and not the spring belt clip like I have for my BB 9700. The slip clips just don't stay on your belt as well as the spring clips.
So the BB Storm case is too large? bummer.. I was trying to see if the case for the new 9850/9860 would work, but they look like they are just a tad bit too small...
I'm with you Static! i would like my phone to be nekked for all to see! Would the Storm case still be too large if you put a bumper-type case on the phone?
so, many thanks for the advice...do you happen to know of any good cases?
... great... now im scared that i just jinxed myself!!! grrrrr!!! lol

I may have to look into getting a Storm case (Storm 1 or 2..does it matter?)...

It's solid. I do have the commuter on, so without the case, there would be some wiggle room.
Really happy with the combo though. Like you, I have always carried my blackberry in a belt clip
I actually had my torch come out of my belt case and shattered the screen. I have absolutely no fear of my I4S going anywhere with this combo!

I have a bumper case on my phone and use a $16 case from Wally World (Walmart). Works great!!! It's made by Case Logic and it pivots so I can either use it vertical or horizontal. It also has a magnet flip lid. Phone fits in it like it was made for it. Loose enough slide in and out easily, but doesn't rattle...
