    Case for The Q

    I bought a leather/magnetic case for $29.99 at best buy for My Motorola Q that I think would be perfect for you. Especially in a purse. It works fine for me except I like to keep it fully pocketed & the clip is a little more than I need.:thumbup:

    When I bought the "Q" they threw in the Magnetic Case, the Car Charger and the Bluetooth Headset for free due to a running promotion. The magnetic case is durable, but i will be upgrading to an aluminum or titanium case once it becomes available.

    You know, speaking of that magnetic case... I purchased one of those with my Q, figuring that I would ultimately hate the thing. To the contrary, it is actually kind of growing on me. If it just had a window in the front so I could see who was calling without having to actually take the phone out, I would probably like it pretty well. Anyway, I know that case takes alot of heat in the newsgroups, but I have found it to be pretty functional and durable. Anyone else?

    My whole goal about dumping the BB and getting the Q was to get rid of the "Hip Holster". And with the Q I have. So I am trying diffarent Skins, will report on how they are.

    Looks interesting. How thin is it? Whats the texture like? Is it like a case, or just a film that you put over parts of the phone?

    It is a film the protects the entire phone (except the keyboard) and has a slight tacky feel to it, which gives me a better handle on my Q.

    I believe you were looking for a case to carry on construction sites? This might be a start, but I would still slip my Q into one of these:

    That is the initial one that I want, but out of all the ones ive looked at so far, none of them specify whether they can fit with the extended battery. As I posted in another thread, the extended battery made me give up my magnetic closing case because it fit way too snug with the extended battery attached.

    invisible shield

    It is similar to the invisible shield sold at ShieldZone - Home of the iPod Screen Protector. I bought one for my Q immediately, and it also gives you a shield for the extended battery as part of the package. The plastic film is fairly thick and very durable, they developed it orginally for the leading edge of helicopter blades. The film has a lifetime warranty. I bought one for my mp3 player and it has worked out great. I have mine installed on my Q and it has been doing great. I dont have the extended battery so I used that extra shield and cut it into peices to cover the corners of the phone to protect it from accidental drops, etc.

    Aluminum case and extended battery

    Has anyone found a hard case that fits with the extended battery? I thought we hit it with :
    Motorola Q Monaco Aluminum Case - Silver

    but I emailed them, and they say it doesn't.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    skin

    I got a clear skin for my Q and it is that silicone rubber. I took it off because I like the feel of the Q better without it. The rubber makes it harder to slide into my pocket and I don't think it looks as good.

    hard metal case with Extended Battery for the Q

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ALUMINUM-METAL-...ryZ20351QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem
    My husband and I each bought a black one - they have some that are for extended battery, and some that are for the regular battery. It was about $20 + shipping. I love mine - the only thing I don't like is that sometimes if I use the belt clip, if I hit the latch it sometimes has opened and dropped the phone. But for slipping into a purse or pocket, it's great! The clip comes completely off (it screws into the phone case). Check it out - it's done a great job of protecting my phone - I pull it out of the case sometimes and am just thrilled with how nice the phone looks since it doesn't get all beat up!

    I did apply a screen protector to the plexi-glass screen of the hard case, as well as to my phone's screen so it's extra protected...:smile:

    Hey, I'm looking for a nice aluminum case for the q9m. i've seen the monaco aluminum (http://store.everythingq.com/content/accessories/4-23--1018.htm) which looks pretty cool, but I haven't seen it yet for the q9m... you have any idea when it'll become available? (ok, you don't have to answer that, I just emailed Monaco, and will see what they say.)
