Default Silicone Base and Screen Protector? Or Total Body Protector?

Please Login to Remove!

I just got a Blackberry 8130 from Verizon and I am loving it as I test it out. If I keep it I want to definitely get a protection case for it.

Seems like some people use the screen protector only, some use a silicone case too. Then there is the Total Body protector from BestSkinsEver http://www.bestskinsever.com/servlet/the-78/RIM-BlackBerry-8130-Pearl/Detail


What do you use?

Anyone recommend any good silicone protectors? or are th eBay knock offs all the same and equal?

I use a Seidio hard plastic screen protector and the RIM leather pouch. I keep mine in my pocket, not on a belt. The good thing about the Seidio is that you just stick it on there (no water, etc), and it won't scratch and no edges will peel away. I've have mine over a year and looks like new. It does cost more than the ones that you cut and paste on. The pouch protects all the keys, the trackball (even the screen). Has a magnet to shut off the display when you put it away.

Thumbs up

I just applied the best skins ever full body skin and it is a solid addition. It makes the pearl feel a little more solid, gives it a little more rigidity and it covers the front, back and screen to protect from scratches. . . cant get a better deal for $10.
