Might be good but how about the keyboard? the description doesn't explain how you might access it?

I ordered something similar off of eBay for my 8525...

For $5 you don't expect great quality, but it was made well enough, snaps into place, and protects the 8525 nicely. I bought the optional belt clip, but probably won't use it much, I fear it won't hold up.

Because they are 2 pieces, and makes it very easy to access the keyboard.

things is, i'm not sure it will fit the tytn, given that the button order on the tytn is wider than the 8525. i'm afraid i wont have access to the dial/end buttons...

Talking Yes

You should read the 'Case Recommendation' thread, this is where this question belongs.

This is a knock off of the merit-line case. Has free shipping same case, but has a 'nub' for a belt holster that isnt very good. I left a lengthy review of my expirience with the case. Its cheap and I wouldnt bother getting it to protect your $500 or so phone! Others had simular expiriences as mine. This case is good if your a 'pocket' type of guy and only put ur fone in ur pocket. For belt and outside holsters. DONT GET IT.

Id recommend b4 you buy anything off ebay to check your device and capability of things. Alot of these cases made in Asia and what not alot of the times NEVER fit your device. Id spend the extra money and get a legit case from:

or meritline..

To sum up, the cases: The tytn ones and the cingular 8525's have a 1mm difference and they wont fit properly even with tweaking. So pay close attention before you buy.

all of those plastic like cases are the same... also dont be fooled into the "carbon fiber" or "rubber hard case" unless you see a good picture or manufacture all they are are the plastic shells with different colors or texture...

the carbon fiber for example is nothing but painted on... you can see the paint marks inside... the rubber one is the same just with a rubber spray or so... i think this one is more useful... the good news is all the back case for these cases are the same... dont by into hte hype of the boxwave or other **** that charge you 30 bucks for... they are the same the only difference they might have there name stamped its still plastic that snaps in you can see the belt clip on the boxwave and the whole to be exactly the same as all those on ebay for 5 bucks.

I would not trust none of those case on the belt... i only wanted them because of the ability to use the keyboard the screen is not protected but the reste is good for pocket or other storage
