I used to be a pocket blackberry person too. The silicone case made that way too difficult. Now I'm afraid to put the Tour into the pocket as pocket lint/dust seems to get everywhere on these devices. I'm using the supplied belt clip holdster leather magnet thing.
I don't think the silicone provides any advantages over the plastic aside from not being quite as bulky. It will protect from minor scratches to the sides and back, and extremely minor bumps, but does little outside of that realm.
