I Purchased a Nokia 521 win8 phone. I want a case for it that has a stylus attached or can be functionally attached. I cannot find a case configuration like this. I cannot believe no one wants this type of case configuration.

This phone replaced my well-loved trusty PocketPC that MS abandoned with win7&8. The stylus went quickly into the PocketPC, which went quickly into a case, which went into my pocket. Quick and compact and efficient!! Just grab it and go and PocketPC, case & stylus is all there in one package.
Now its “where’s my 521?!?, Where is that stylus? I know I forgot something? No, I have everything, I think?”.

I want my Nokia 521 in a case with a stylus all in one package I can grab quick and go.
Is there any hope I will find what I am looking for? I want the same quick and compact and efficient configuration I had with my PocketPC.
Thank you for your help!!

Good luck finding a case for the 521 that also holds a stylus. I think it will be hard to find that type of case, unfortunately, since most people who use a stylus nowadays are using a really big device (phablet size like the Samsung Galaxy Note 2). I don't think styluses are that commonly used with small devices.

Buy a two piece rubberized hard shell "Black" case from Ebay or Amazon. About $4-$6. I purchase the white case and it stained and cannot be cleaned off. Ended up using white house paint to get it back to new! Black should work fine since it a color that stains do not show.

Is there a stylus that even works on this phone? I tried the tip (hard plastic) of my drawing tablet pen and it wouldn't pick it up.

I may have to try one out. I can see it being very useful with an app like FreshPaint. Of course I have a big 8x10 drawing tablet on my PC, so perhaps I don't need another toy lol. I do often find myself using the tip of my nail on the 521 when I need more accuracy.

Harry Wild, thank you for your kind response. I searched Ebay or Amazon for variations of this ?Nokia 521 two piece rubberized hard shell case stylus? search phrase you suggested. I could not find a case that held a stylus. Can you suggest a more specific case with stylus on Ebay or Amazon? Thank you for your help.

Case with a stylus? I'd be happy just to find some cases for sale.

If it makes you feel any better, I come from the Apple iPhone world and I never did find a case with an integrated Stylus solution for that either.

Here are some pictures of my "stylus" and case. I use a telescopic pointer with pocket clip and an old Dell Axim X50V soft case. I eventually will get a hard shell case. The photos were taken with an ancient Motorola camera phone so the quality is a little poor.
