Apart from a few dodgy looking cases on ebay I can't see any accessories yet.
Has anyone found any cases, batteries , docks, screen protectors etc.
In an ideal world I could really do with a case a bit like the sgs2 mesh case.

Doesn't work with hard cases since the vivacity is thicker

The edge of the Vivacity is the identical thinkness to the iPhone 4. There's a curve on the back tho' that stops it fitting a hard iPhone 4 case. (And the camera rim which stands proud ;) )

A gummy iphone4 case should fit OK if it's stretchy

Shouldn't be too long for some covers to come out. I'd like a mesh cover that is flat but curved inside to fit the Vivacity.

We need Mobilefun to get on the case (pun)

Both Flibblesan and me have both been in contact with t-mobile about the deal. To get it you need to text the word xmas to 480004 and you should then receive a text in reply. This text has the link to download the apps from. Slight problem though. It's broke and t-mobile are saying it isn't. I have sent them various screenshots showing them and they keep saying "try again tomorrow".

Text the number with the sim you got with the phone and see if you can get the apps site to work.

That's the thing. The sites down, so we just don't know.

Look online for a screen protector for the osf1, it has the exact same screensize and dimensions.

No probs glad I could help. As for the case, apparently _some_ of the sturdier iphone 4 cases fit with a bit of fidgeting, but I can't see it fitting very well as the phones are different sizes (although both indeed have 3.5" screens, one is a widescreen and the other is a boxier 3:2 ratio so they won't be a perfect fit). I would suggest holding off for a bit or maybe using a pull cord case designed for the osf1.

I had a look on ebay and bought this, http://www.ebay.co.u...8#ht_2666wt_982

It arrived quickly and fits perfectly. :D The photo shows and iPhone 4 in the case. :o

I just needed something quick to stop it getting scratched. Would rather have a Gel case or bumper but this will do for now.

Sounds good. Just ordered one as well. Agreed that the gel cases are the best though, love it on my Blade 1. Indispensable!
