Default Just ordered 8330, what does everyone use as a skin or case? Whats the best?

Please Login to Remove!

I keep reading the OEM covers slip off easily, and I've had bad experience with the rubberized hard covers on my other phone. It would trap dirt inside and rub against the phone and scratch it. I also heard of Best Skins Ever, is that what the consensus is that it is the best?

I like phone on hip sideways.
Wished I had spent a little more to
get one with "go to sleep" magnet.
Left hip works better with seat belt in car.
So no skin.

I wrapped mine with a bestskinsever.com full unit skin, then slipped a rubber blackberry oem skin on top of that one. It's now virtually scratch proof.

case-mate.com has some really nice cases.

This is what I ended up buying at a local store, though...

Blackberry Source.com - BlackBerry Curve Holster (Black Leather)

It does have a "go to sleep" magnet in it.

i have the sedio innocase rubberized hard case for my 8330 (VZW) and i purchased the Zagg invisible shield (total body kit) to protect the surfaces while inside the "hard cover". i did not install the entire kit, because i have the sedio 2600 mah battery & door so, i just installed the coverings for the "face" of my unit to protect from unwanted scratches. I carry my Curve in a Verizon 8830 Leather vertical pouch because of the larger size (case & Batt). The benefit to me is the 8830 case faces the unit out so the status light is visible and the entire unit is protected.

I use the rubber BlackBerry branded cover which I got from Worse Buy for $14.99. Got 3 clear screen covers off of Ebay for $9.99 shipped. Have a universal leather holster which I got off Ebay for $9.99 shipped and it came with a car charger. I'm protected to the hilt.

I do have an issue which happened before all this. I have a ton of dust under the screen. Its really pissing me off too.

I use Bodyguardz. Similar to BSE, but these cover the rubber siderails also. Costs more, but they give 2 in the pack and have lifetime exchange. I holster it for work and pocket carry when I don't have a belt on the weekends.

I use the BSE full coverage. Like the protection, and the grip that it adds to the device when I handle it "naked". I also use a skin from VZW on mine when I know I will have it in tough environments, where the kids might want to handle it, etc. Gives added protection. I always carry mine in a horizontal side pouch. Have several; one brown from vzw that is a generic PDA case, a couple of other generic black ones I had from my old Treo and for my old Env.

The 8300, 8310, and 8320 are a different size than the 8330. But it's just a very slight difference. Some case manufacturers take this into account and others don't, so read carefully.
