Default Cellet case - too tight with BSE?

Please Login to Remove!

I just got a new Cellet case for the 8830 today. I have a BestSkinsEver on it already. The fit seems awfully tight and am hopeful it will loosen up a bit.

I was just wondering if anyone thinks the BSE might be contributing to the tightness? I know the BSE is quite thin, but was curious if anyone else had experience with the Cellet case.

The BSE and Shieldzone skins are quite sticky. This makes them hard to get in and out of any case.

Default not mine...

My BSE isn't sticky or tacky at all. It's slick and easy to get in and out of cases (as long as it fits! lol) I've had several BSE's on my devices and never had that issue.

Anyway, after one day it's already starting to loosen up a bit.

Thanks for your response...

Thumbs down

Just an update:

The cellet case has marred the surface of my screen. The case has a magnet inside the case (no, not the one that turns off the screen) that works with an optional clasp over the top of the case, that can be used to prevent the BB from falling out. I took off the strap, but the magnet inside the case remains. There is a small lump inside the case where the magnet is, which has rubbed continuously on my screen. The BSE has worn down and the rubbing has transferred to the actual screen.

Exchangecellular refuses to give a refund, since I reported it 9 days after the 15-day return period. They offered an exchange, but I think it is a design flaw. I bought two cases, including one for a friend. My friend's BB has the same issue now.

Just a warning to those considering the Cellet case...
