Default 8703 case?

Please Login to Remove!

Hello,

I'm wondering if any one has had good experiences with the Body Glove products for the BB 8703? Or if there's a similar alternative to it? I want to be able to feel the keys as I type but the rest of the BB is protected with some kind of rubberized skin or grip.

Suggestions?

Thanks

Adam

Ok well I received the "total Body Skin" and I have mixed thoughts about it. Basically If you were to put it on the day you got your new BB I think it would work out great. However I didnt put mine on for a few weeks and there was already minor scratches on the srceen/body of it, so where there are any imperfection it causes an air bubble. Maybe I was to impatient while applying it...who knows? I would definatly recommend ordering 2 if any.

Well since I didnt really like the "full body skin" I just ordered the Body Glove case for it off of ebay for $7.95. I will let you know how it is when it comes in.

Body Glove case is pretty sweet, however my only complaint would be that the blackberry sits somewhat far from your belt. The clip is a bit bulky and it makes the phone stick out kind of far. I still kind of prefer the OEM belt clip the 8703e came with.

I have the bestskinsever full body skin on my 8703e and love it. Your point about the air bubbles is contrary to my experience with the product.

I found that by steaming up the bathroom and using a drop of baby shampoo in the water makes the application easy. Usually any imperfections that I have at installation go away after a day of two of use.

I like the all over protection, the tackiness that it adds to my device's exterior, and the fact that it is thin enough to allow me to use any other carrying case or belt clip in addition.

Just my $0.02

I never heard of the "steamy bathroom trick" before...

I might have to try that now.

Thanks

I put the best skin on my 8703e and have enjoyed it since. I made sure I cleaned the screen very well before applying the protector. Afterwards, it still fits in my case with no problems. I recommend it.
