Default hard plastic cover question

Please Login to Remove!

they have them for like $30 on crackberry.com -- or like $6 on ebay.

anyone have experience with an ebay one? does it make the phone way more bulky? -- one of my friends likes his a lot from crackberry.com because it makes the phone feel more sturdy, im not looking to drop 30 on it though.

any suggestions?

seidoonline.com has them, look at the slim hard rubber covers. You will love it.

nevermind got it...looks good, but im not really looking to drop $30 on it...do you think the ebay models would be a close 2nd? -- im also not looking for a 'rubbery' feel. i've had the silicone cases on my pearl, and they're impossible to get in and out of my pocket (which i do frequently, for the time).

BlackBerrys are really not made at all pockets. You will be having trackball issues with lint and dust in it.

The hard plastic case at seido does not have the rubbery feels, just slightly lesser so. i have not purchased or used the ones at CB. I would think you might want to ask/read the reviews there of those products.

I bought my plastic cover case along from ebay (along with like 5 other different cases that came in a bundle back) and have no complaints from it other than it gets some dust between the case and blackberry but no biggie (you can take it off and clean it). In the end you get what you pay for, I think its worth it...
