Would you recommend the Seidio rubberized case?

I just bought a zcase skin case for my wx. It looked good on the computer but it was just too hard to press the keys with the cover. Any good or bad experiences with the seidio case?

I can't speak of the Seidio case specifically, but I'm not a fan of the rubberized cases. Nor am I a fan of the Seidio crystal case. While it's nice they protect your phone, they get lint/junk from your pocket underneath the case.

I highly recommend www.bestskinsever.com. 6 bucks and you get a clear protective skin that adds no bulk whatsoever. But then again I'm very careful with my phone.

palm flexi case

I really like the flexi case from Palm. It is a thin rubbery skin.

After I had the treo for about a week, I was still wondering what I was going to do for a case. Then by coincidence CompUSA had a clearance on two returned Palm items (flexi case and leather side holster). So I ended up getting two things that weren't even remotely on my list of candidates.

I'll admit the flexi case will make slipping it into your pocket terrible, but I don't really intend to do that much anyway.

The reason I love the flexicase is because it made the little keyboard much more usable for me. My finger tips are just too big to navigate well on the keyboard. Somehow the flexcase makes it 10 times easier for me to be speedy, hard to explain. I think part of it is that the keys are kind of hard and plasticky feeling and my fingertips tend to slide on them and sometimes press the wrong key, where the skin just makes it easier for me.

And the leather side case / holster is much better feeling than I thought it would be (it looks bulkier sitting on the table than it doesn wearing it IMO).

I'm not sure how things are going to work out in the summer though, wtih shorts on, unless I wear a belt all the time. The treo is not a razor.

Questions - does the Best Skin make it harder to use the keyboard? And does it still give you a clear view of the screen?

I've ordered a case but I definitely want to keep my new 700wx scratch-free!

I have the Boxwave Flexiskin and so far I like it. It comes with a hand strap and a lanyard which is nice but no real place to attach it that I could find. I just looped it in between the hole for the speaker and one of the three slits on the left side.

It's not sticky, doesn't attract dust. I sometimes take it off and wipe the Treo and the inside of the skin down as I get a lot of dog fur trapped there.

I think it's time that your dog get his own phone.

I agree about the best skin ever. Highly recommended. They don't cover the keys, but just about everywhere else. I would suggest a different screen protector though, as the one that comes with best skin is soft and rubbery making it difficult to use the stylus. I really like the product.

Rubber Case

I have the Seido case its greate except for one thing the belt clip. The rubber case has holes for the speaker on the back of the phone but not the clip so when you holster the phone in the clip the plastic blocks the entire speaker making it very very difficult to hear your phone ring

I have had the seidio rubberized cover and holster for about a month now and I highly recomend it. I disagree with it sticking in your pocket. I bought the holster for skinned phones also and found it to be a great holster with great construction. However I usually just put it in my pocket and have never had a problem getting it out quickly. Really protects the investment and is not as cheap as many of the other options. Also on the model I have the blocked speaker is not an issue because the phone mounts in to the holster screen facing in. Helps protect screen and speaker works fine.
