For the original iPhone I had a Belkin case which it would slip into from the top, and it had a belt clip on it. The phone would not be used in the case, and I liked it that way. In fact, this is the case: http://imagehost.vendio.com/a/3578944/aview/belkin_iphone_holster_case_F8Z169-BLK_final.JPG Since upgrading to the 4, I haven't found any similar cases designed for the newer phones. Upon upgrading to the 5s today, I resigned to buy this in the store: http://store.apple.com/us/product/HB933ZM/A/sena-laterale-duo-case-for-iphone-5?fnode=47 This is manageable, except that I keep my phone in my pocket, and with the other vertically designed clip case, I could reach into my pocket and slide the phone out of the case with one hand. I can't do that anymore with this one obviously. Does anybody know if there is a case like what I'm looking for for the 5/5s? I'm tempted to cut open one end of this leather case I just got. By the way, I don't need there to be a clip on it.
