Lightbulb Best Case for the Curve

Please Login to Remove!

Okay so who has a case for their curve? Would you recommend the one you have or do you think getting the skin cover is a better way to go?

Put up pics and state what type of case you prefer...

SUPER SLIM HYBRID HARD CASE & HOLSTER COMBO- BLACKBERRY CURVE - BD2-HLCSH2BB8300

I want the above case but what perplexes me is that the same company, Seido, is making a back civer that has a speaker whole for better sound. Well, won't this case cover the speaker whole of the new battery cover that is being made. So aren't you defeating the purpose of the newly developed batttery cover with the speaker hole with this case that will cover the speaker hole. Or will it. Please weigh in as I truly want this case two

The clip holsters suck. They start to peel/tear/rip the plastic at the top that it clicks on. The skins are on, but they are slippery at first and many people have dropped them. To me the best thing for your curve/blackberry is the OE Blackberry leather holster with the power saving function. It sucks that the curve doesn't come with one like my 8800 did, so I had to pay $30 for it (minus my discount :D). The silicone cases or hard cases are also not good because no matter what you are going to be around dust/dirt/etc...and that gets in between that and the phone and causes scratches.

I'm an agent btw, so I see all types coming in daily and the people who carry the holster have the less amount of noticeable wear.

Best Buy sells the OEM Blackberry leather holster for $14.44. Its very high quality and I also recommend it.

I love the look and feel of the rubberized case. My only problem is that this only seems to be practical if you either have a job at a desk where you can leave your cell phone on the desk or if you put your Curve in your pocket.

I'm on the go all day and wear my cell phones on my belt and there is no way that I've seen to practically use the rubberized case.

I'm using a leather belt case I picked up at the AT&T store that fits on my belt.

Good feedback. You'd know best being in the business and seeing what everyone is doing.

Default OEM Silicone skin is the best

I like the OEM Blackberry Skins, light, simple and adds enough protection without the hassle

Love this one too. T-Mo's stores now carry them in black; Amazon has them in orange.

I can't tell much from the picture--what does this cover? Does it feel like a rubber backing around the curve?

Although I have the OEM case, carrying in my pocket, without a case, is sure convenient and unobtrusive. I only use the case because I think eventually I'll lean against it, and cause some damage.
