Default Using case (hard, silicone, etc) over skin (purchased from on Tour

Please Login to Remove!

This is my first post . I purchased a skin on for my BlackBerry Tour 9630, although I haven't put it on yet. I was wondering if anyone has used a hard case, silicone case, jewel case, etc., over the skin for extra protection and personalization? I've been looking at the different case options on eBay. Any recommendations? Thanks for your help!!

If u can buy both, buy both. Just a case will be prone to storing dirt that will rub against the surface and scratch ur Blackberry, and just a silicone won't do as it is out in the open in the will at least protect the surfaces from getting scratched..if u can't get both, get a case or silicone cover in my opinion..

I have tried 2 silicone cases for Tour. The one that fits and look nicer is the one thaat aligns to the outer edge. You can still see verizon on bottom and the top part above the screen where the ear piece is is not covered. It si good for protection for scratches and will provide some buffer for falls. I like it because it fits like a glove and not bulky like the hard plastics. It is an OEM case and "blackberry" is on the back horizontally.
I gather the preference is size of the Tour. Good luck.
