It's the new fashion trend to carry your BB in your hands and yes, they are slippery and bound to slip out of your hand. I share your dilemma (I did some serious dropping with my Pearl); But I'm sorry about the fall, I can imagine how you feel (like sxxx)
Now, my CURVE has its own wardrobe!! I bought the GEL-pack (three colors) and also, the BLACKBERRY LEATHER HOLDER that clips on a belt or lining of clothes. If I am at my office, I use one of the GEL packs. When I'm lounging around Los Angeles, I use the leather holder. It is slippery in a good way, the blackberry sits easy and tight and doesn't fall out. Only dilemma, you must hit the "STAND BY" buttom prior to sliding the BB into the holder - UPSIDE DOWN - otherwise you'll have a battery issue.
