Default What accesories do you have/bought for your Javelin?

Today I purchased a black skin for my beloved 8900, just like this one: Blackberry Source.com - BlackBerry Curve 8900 Skin Case (Black)

The only thing difference was the price, which amazed me: 3$. The quality of the rubber is A+, never thought it could be this goos. It so smooth it feels like velvet.

Anyway, on my way home, I thought about starting this thread. This way we can give some info and ideas to others about what to shop, where, how much it costs and the most important thing: if it's worthed!

I bought some MiniUSB to MicroUSB adapters, the BSE (skin), a crappy plastic case with a swivel clip and ordered a leather case with a swivel clip.
What I WANT to order is a Body Glove Silicone case with swivel clip. But, it doesn't exist yet. :P

Did you mean the skin cost you $3... i tried to buy it and it is showing at $9.99. Is there any promo code which you may want us to try out? The skin looks decent but cannot comment in details until I use it.

I have only bought mini to micro USB adaptors so far. But I will probably buy a black battery door cover for my girlfriend. She does not like the gray cover.

I bought a BSE setup for $10 (only used the pieces for the back, screen, and front top), and the RIM dock for bedside charging/clock use ($17). I love the bedside clock feature. I use the included leather pouch for carrying in my pocket. I got a car charger too. I sent the RIM indigo blue leather pouch ($30 plus ship. Now it's listed at $20 here Blackberry Source.com - BlackBerry 8900 Curve Leather Pocket Case (Black)) back. It was too tight and pushed keys when inserted.

From what I've seen, best price is $17 (includes shipping) on eBay. Just type in "8900 oem craddle"

As for myself, I got black oem silicon skin (ebay it, should go for about $7 includes shipping), cheapo car charger, and invisible shield. Overall, I think my 8900 is well protected from scratches and dings. I highly recommend the OEM silicon skin, not only it protects the phone but it offers some grip to the device as we all know it can be "a slippery sucker."

I've been eyeing the craddle, but yet to order it... maybe if the price drops just a tad more, I might be tempted to order one.

IF I got a code for the shop I mentioned, I would have give it. As you can see, I'm located in Romania (European Union) and I bought the skin from a Orange shop here. Orange is the biggest carrier here in Romania, followed by Vodafone and Cosmote.

We ordered and received the OEM charging pods, black Innocase II from Seidio, a bunch of micro to mini USB adaptors from Cellguru and 8gb MicroSD cards from Newegg.

We also ordered the screen guards from Amazon but they never showed up so we tried to ask for tracking info (no response) and then cancel (no response) and had no choice but to do a chargeback on our credit card.

Anyway, I usually order our pre-cut screen guards from Seidio but it looks like their screens guards are the same ones they sell for the 8300. So, the entire screen wouldn't be covered.

Can anyone recommend a good pre-cut screen guard that fits the entire 8900 screen? Thanks.

My Clarivue screen protector covers 97% of the screen. How much of the screen is everything else covering?
