Default What's Your Favorite Case?

Please Login to Remove!

I'm looking to get a nice case for my new BB.

I REALLY like the switcheasy ipod cases, but they don't make a case for BBs.

I would like a case that is a hybrid of polycarbonate plastic and the soft feeling rubber that doesn't attract lint.

Can anyone recommend any brand name that they like? God forbid I drop my BB

For my 8330, i was satisfied with just a skin. Some users recommend Otterbox

I looked at the otterbox impact case, but it seems to me like it's all silicon.

Can anyone vouch for the material in the case or the "lint problem"?

I have an Otterbox for my 8330 and absolutely love it!!! It provides 3 layers of protection. First is a clear 'skin' that fits over the keys and screen. Next is a HARD plastic shell that clamps over the entire phone and then that is wrapped in a silicon skin. As far as protection, in my opinion you cant find better while keeping the phone useable. It does make the phone bulkier but it is very easy to get used to. I'm more interested in protecting my phone when I drop it or in the rain as opposed to making a fashion statement. Also I have not had a lint problem at all.

The Otterbox commuter case for my Blackberry Storm 2 is the best case I have ever had.
It has the protection of plastic and silicone, and doesn't add too much bulk.
It doesn't apear that they make that for the Curve, but the Defender is an excellent case also.

Gray wraparound silicon one sold at the carrier store is the best I've found for protection for my BB. And for my ipod I got Gamefacez ipod cases from iFnatic that is still in great condition after ten months of use.

Seidio makes a great case in my opinion.

"a hybrid of polycarbonate plastic and the soft feeling rubber that doesn't attract lint."

Your description of what you want describes exactly what a Seidio case is. I've had one for nearly two years wrapped around my 8330. It works VERY well. I have dropped it in dance clubs, on stairs, etc., and my Curve still doesn't have a scratch on it.

^^yes, the body glove is awesome!!! My girlfriend has one for her curve and when I just picked one up, she went out and got me the same case. It is harder to find, she had to call a few verizon stores, but found a store that had one. It fits real well and has a felt backing. I honestly don't think I have ever seen a better case in person!
