Default Leather case leaches color into Invisible Shield!

Please Login to Remove!

I have placed-very carefully!-an Invisible Shield on my TMo Curve and really like it. No scratches at all and I love the feel of the grip. But...I found over a couple of weeks it developed a brown tint on both the front and back. I ordered a replacement (no problem...ZAGG was great with the replacement under warranty) and after a couple of weeks, same issue.

My son's Blackjack Shield is pristine after several weeks of carrying it with his car keys in his pocket, so I knew something was amiss.

I called ZAGG again today and explained the situation to Heather, one of their reps, and she told me they have discovered that the leather case, which I use, has a dye that leaches into the Shield and discolors it. She is sending yet another replacement, but suggested I not use the BB leather case to avoid it happening again. She said by using the Shield I would not need the leather case for protection. So I'll try it.

I post this in case you have had the same problem.

No need to shy away from a leather holster if you want one. I have used the Blackberry-branded leather holster for a month and a half with no discoloration. If TMo doesn't have one, you can always pick one up at the AT&T store.

Prior to that I used the TMo-branded leather case, which discolored my BSE full body shield. (BSE also sent a free replacement.)

If you carry your BB in your pocket that's fine but realize that you will get more lint/dust inside the trackball and you will have the occasional trackball lockup. Easy fix, though, just push and roll in the direction that doesn't work. Just thought I'd drop that tidbit.
