Default 8703e Scratches?

Please Login to Remove!

I got a refurbished 8703e in August this year after my original one went crazy and froze. I've been utilizing the plastic holster that was provided by RIM to carry it in my purse, and I've noticed something...

The bottom, front corners are scratched and worn down. Is this solely from the holster? It doesn't take away from its operating capability, but it's a bummer to see it all marked up.

Do you suggest I get a different holster, or is there anything I can do with this one?

Thanks for any help!

Well unfortunately seems using the plastic holster, it does wear on the device it that specific area. The only suggestion I could give you would be a leather type holster. They have no hard plastic on plastic areaxxx8217;s rubbing in contact constantly.

lol, or you could just not care.

Be a true bb abuser and throw them around. I just dropped mine down a 7 ft concrete stairwell

Gouges are blackberry scars. Chicks dig them.

Hahaha, well, that doesn't help me much since I'm a chick myself. Not into other chicks, so not trying to impress them with my BB scars. But yeah, I just don't want it to get all marked up and ugly because I like it all pretty and nice. Just joking, but it really bugs me! I'll have to go look for some sort of soft holster then. Thanks.
