View Full Version : I'm going to cry, console me...

Well, after owning Palm handhelds for over a year now my first, well really first two incidents have occured. I pulled my handheld out of my case today because I noticed a scratch that digs about 2 mm into the corner of my handheld. Okay, I can live with that. Then, I go to put it back in the leather case. Wait, there is a dent around the stylus area! Nnnnnnnoooooooooooooooooo!! Well, I guess I can live with it because I don't see internal damage or any to the screen. It is my first incident too. Well, I'm off to go cry about it. I guess I can't wait to buy that metal case.

It sounds like that would be a good idea.

Thanks, for some reason it had to happen to the pda before I bought the case. Do I go with the Innopocket with 2/3 working clips (for most, i've heard that) or DSI with the possibility to scratch the top?

Well...its already scratched... :)

Lol, well I didn't think of it that way. Still need one obviously though. I think the DIS one looks better and fits my conditions better.

Well, my Clie suffered its worst event last night. It fell three feet onto a tiled floor (yes, that's the worst--I am very careful).
But, it was in a zippered vinyl case and landed flat, so it just kind of "poofed" when it hit, like a beanbag.
No damage and it booted right up. Knock wood.
Bummer about yours, however. A case and screen protector are the most important things you can add to your PDA, as you must realize by now.
And get the right case for your environment. If your PDA will be taking a lot of crushing or sharp damage (e.g., sitting on it, things falling on it, tossing it into a backpack), you want a hard metal case.
If your PDA takes a lot of small bumps (e.g., in a pocket, on a belt clip, moderate drops), then a leather or vinyl case is smaller and better.
If you expect your PDA will get wet (but not soaking wet) from splashes and rain showers, you want a zippered case.
If you think you'll drop your PDA a lot, you want a chain or lanyard on it.

Go with the DSI or anything but the Innopocket. I just had a terrible experience with the Innopocket.
Scratched my Clie and gouged the back near clips.
Took 20 days to get here.
Didn't even clip in when I tried forcefully.

Yeah I looked at a ton of Innopocket threads and reviews and I'm strongly against it now. I don't know of any but the DSI now so I guess that's what I'm getting. And my pda fell 6 feet from a locker today. Opps! I definetly need a metal case. That's the first time I've ever dropped a PDA too!

You people don't even want to see my Clie's if those little flaws bother you...

I put some medical tape on the inside of the DSI case...my t665c now fits more snugly and scratch free :)
i have two small scratches as well, have to think of it as adding 'character' :/
