Question Bold battery door that's rubberized?

Please Login to Remove!

Does anyone know if there is a battery door for the Bold that is rubberized? I've search quite a bit and come up empty handed. I'm not looking for a skin or snap on case. I just want to replace the battery door with one that has a rubber coating on it for better grip.

TIA

The "leather-like" back door has a more textured feel than the slick black door.

^ Yes, I know but I'm in Chicago and it gets very cold. The leather becomes hard a the phone slips easily out of your hand. I want a battery door that has a rubber coating on it for this very reason. I've seen them for older BB phones but nothing for the Bold. sigh...

It is not leather. I said leather-like. It is more of a rubber, just slighly textured.

Theres a rubberized replacement door that comes with seidio's 3500mah extended battery for the bold. Unfortunately I cant yet post a link but just run a google search for seidio + 3500mah + battery + bold. Should be the first of second result. I've seen that item as low as 50 bucks and it more than doubles your battery life. Good luck.
