I just bought a oem soft skin case, and its great, but i was wondering how many of you guys also have cases. also, how can i protect the screen better than just buying temp screen protectors?

I do. It was one of my big investments (being a college student here) I made so I'm quite protective of it.

As for a screen protector, I have the Best Skins Ever shield on it. I put it on my Curve when I first got it back in October and it's still looks brand new.

I use a Speck SeeThru case for mine. This protects the sides AND the screen. I also have a Screen Patronus screen protector underneath the SeeThru case. LOL! I am really paranoid...

I use the Seidio screen protector on my Curve. My current one has lasted four months so far with no visible sign of wear and tear. I also use an OEM holster from a 7100t. Fits the Curve perfectly. Would use the pouch that came with the Curve, but it doesn't have a cutout for the charging port, and I like to keep my handset "in case" while charging it. I may get brave and "mod" myself a little hole in the side of the pouch.

I use a full body protector (Invisible Shield). The only damage I've ever had from dropping my BB's are small scratches that are generally preventable with one of these skins.

my 8800 came with a sweet leather case. at first i hated it, because i was used to my 7290 holster..but i have had my 8800 for almost a year and the leather case protects it so well.. i have never dropped it and the BB looks almost mint!

I don't have anything on my bb. I can't stand having protective cases wrapped around it. I like it just the way it came...

I have a screen protector on the way, and keep it holstered at all times, just like my glock. When its charging is the only time it is exposed. When not in the holster, it's in the case it came with. Although a lot of people use skins, I cant.

yes!! i agree, so you get a screen protector, the sides of it gather lint, i feel like i don't get to enjoy the phone fully. after you upgrade the phone your still junking the thing. i always upgrade my phone, usually 1-2 years, the oem stuff blackberry provides with the phones is enough, either the plastic holster that i had with my 8700 or the leather pouch with the 8130 just in case i throw it into some bag with keys or something.

Here we go again...

Best Skins Ever Home Page.

And search on that "bestskinsever" and "invisibleshield" and "silicone" for other threads where this is discussed in great detail.

To each his own, but I don't really understand the purpose of a skin or thin case to protect the device. Covering it defeats the purpose of it being stylish, doesn't it? Are you afraid of a few scratches here and there? Why? Resale value? How many of you put bras on your cars? I don't because they are ugly and I enjoy my car looking the way it's supposed to look. I'm not too worried about a few stone chips here and there. Besides, oem replacement parts are readily available and in most cases for less money than you would pay for a case and holster.
