Default OEM BB Curve Case?

Please Login to Remove!

So I have dropped my gf's phone twice now and she is obviously not happy with me. Its got nicks and stratches all over...lol opps. Where Can I find an OEM case? Is that even possible? Her service provider is sprint.

Thanks!

I got a really good, and really cheap, plastic case and holster from a T-Mobile store last week.

It was $10 USD, but it's very solid and looks better than most leather/plastic window jobbers.

They were available in blue, pink and clear.

You can get those cases on ebay or go to a T-Mobile or At&T store. They sell the OEm cases, but for OEM prices...

I had bought the one from TMo a few weeks ago. There are some out there that are better quality, and worth paying a bit more for.

I'm a fan of the OEM silicon cases. They're cheap and does its job. I always have a case on my phone and along with a screen protector, it has been protected in a few drops without issue.

Would someone please comment as to how secure the belt clip is when clipped to a belt. I spend a lot of time out on site and am afraid I might lose it. I have been looking for a case with belt loops but these are much harder to find and I dont think they do this in an OEM BB version.

If you have the correct belt size for the clip to fit, then you won't need to worry about the swivel case losing your BB.

Everyone seems to be pointing him to the wrong direction. He has an 8330 (Sprint/CDMA), most of these sites don't have that. The 8330 differers from the previous 8300 Curves although same shape/size, the keyboard inserts and screen cutout is different. If you need a housing try this site:

Blackberry 8330 Curve Cell Phone Parts - Blackberry Cell Phone Repair Parts

This isn't my site but looked at to purchase housing, etc.

Check eBay. I bought a housing for the 8330 off there last week. It arrived yesterday, so PM me if you would like to know the quality. It is supposedly off a Bell or Telus (I don't remember the Canadian CDMA carrier off hand). It included the front faceplate, lens, bottom piece with the carrier label, sides, back, 2 Torx tools, a tool to remove the housing easier and a couple other bits.

Before anyone comments, this was for an 8330. I am aware of the difference between this and the standard Curve housing. I checked with the seller and they were very clear that it for an 8330 specifically.

I ordered it to shoot with a different color as I am very bored of the Sprint color. Most of my family is in the automotive business, so it should be pretty easy. Not to hijack the thread, but any suggestions for colors?
