Default New Torch owner, which case

Please Login to Remove!

Hi folks, my first post. Just upgraded from my Bold to a Torch 9800, I like the big screen for my old eyes lol!! My question is about cases. I had an Otterbox on my Curve from day one. I am going to be buying a case for my new Torch. Do you folks have any preference? I'm thinking of another Otterbox or a Seidio. I note there is No Otterbox Defender series for the Torch, just the Commuter line. what are your likes and dislikes between the Seidio and the Otterbox. Thanks for your help and I'm looking forward to contributing to the site.

If anyone is interested in cases, I looked at the Otterbox, [junk, nothing like the one for my bold] Seidio was okay but way too bulky. I also saw the AGF Endo....Awesome. The slider cover attaches to the back cover, in effect allowing the phone to float. its sturdy, feels bulletproof and has a nice grippy texture, love it. It was expensive, bought it from a bit of an upscale store but I wanted a cover asap, its a very vulnerable looking phone. So yup, there you go......

I got this .com/nite-ize-leather-cargo-clip-case to replace a very poor quality xxx8220;tuffluvxxx8221; case. This is well made and fits like a glove. The pocket clip is safe and doesnxxx8217;t feel like itxxx8217;s likely to break if caught or knocked on anything.

I like the old fashion Blackberry OEM Black Vertical Pocket in Pouch Carry Case. My previous phone was a Curve and always liked the pouches so when I got the 9810 I bought this case and find it perfect for my needs.

I also used to own an Otterbox Defender case for all of my older blackberries, but found you really can't have a Defender with a slider. I just use a Seidio belt clip (which keeps the screen on the felt part of the clip).

Seems to be working out.
