I have 2 pearls, a black and white one. I bought the 1250's and back covers for each respectively and couldnt be happier. I only have to recharge about every 48 hours and thats with 10 push mailboxes, 3 gmail pull mailboxes, jivetalk on all day and google maps and search being used about 10 times a day. I also use audible air (if you're an audible customer its a great app) and use bluetooth all the time for phone comms. In an ideal world it would hold up for a week, but Im happy with 48 hours and having come from the wm 5.0/6.0 world, that in itself is a blessing. I love the form factor, but can see a tmo 83xx in my future. As to my case I use the the holster and have no problems with that at all........Its a pleasure to have a stable phone compared to the mda/dash.
