Default blackberry skins..

Please Login to Remove!

ive been looking online at blackberry curve skins and i've noticed that it doesnt look easy to press the side buttons with the skin on. seems like the buttons are sunken in more, so it seems to look. anyone have a skin on their phone that can give input?

I've kept a silicon or rubber skin on my last two models and never had any issues at all with pushing the side buttons.

I use the silicon Blackberry skins a lot. I have a bunch of different colors lol. But the side keys arent' that bad. The left side key isnt difficult to get to, but I did notice that the bottom right key is a bit hard to get to seeing as how it is deeper than the rest ( and i have chubby fingers). Volume keys are moderately accessible. It shouldnt be a problem if you have nails i guess lol. But these skins are good, I recommend them
