Default Recommend a silicone skin please

Please Login to Remove!

OK, I've tried two silicone skins so far and I'm not really happy with either:

- I got this one: eBay: BLACK SILICONE SKIN CASE FOR RIM Blackberry 8800 8830 (item 190120647464 end time Jun-09-07 21:22:56 PDT)

Overall I like it, but I don't like the keyboard being covered (though I would). The silicone is somewhat "tacky" and it has nice bumps on the side that make it easy to grip.

- I purchased the OEM silicone case

This one (IMHO) is just bad. The skin is so smooth it's slippery.

So can anyone recommend a silicone skin that is more on the sticky/tacky side (possibly with bumps on the side for a better grip) but that does not cover the keyboard?

TIA,

Frank

Hi Frank...

I went to e*ay and got setup with the thin film plastic on my 8800. So far, the only issue I have is in very bright sunlight. The film covers the screen and wraps on the top. I covers the bottom area under the keboard and there are two additional pieces for the back.

holden,

Thank you, but I personally don't like the protectors that stick to the unit. I've had previous issues with residue etc. when you take them off.

I live by Goo Gone!

The skin is fine so far... No Complaints except the bright light... I was thinking of trying the clear covers but they seemed too much bulk when I looked at them on the web...
