    REVIEW: Boxwave FlexiSkin for the Curve

    So...new review for the Boxwave FlexiSkin for the Curve

    I buy my bb accessories like I buy myself accessories - so yes, my curve is spoiled

    This is only the second case that I have bought though. I learned the hard way (and most expensive way) with the Pearl on what sort of cases I like.

    This is a pretty cool skin. Its nice and soft, almost a little slippery. The one reason I took the RIM OEM skin off was because it stuck to everything in my pocket. This one doesn't so much...and the actual silicone material is thinner than the RIM skin. So its not as bulky.



    Blackberry Curve FlexiSkin

    colors available: pink, gray, black, blue, clear
    price: $14.95 plus shipping

    The only 'con' that I have about this case is the strip that goes over the trackball. It's flimsy and moves around too much, getting in the way of rolling the trackball. I would have left that part off, or tried to cover the entire keyboard in the thin/flimsy material.

    lol.(packetrat) Cherri, did you try washing the RIM OEM Case with soap and water before putting on your BB? I haven't recieved mine yet but I read somewhere a few months ago that giving it a good wash first eliminates the stickiness.

    Does anyone know if you can fit a curve with a silicone skin in the 8300 OEM case?

    ^^ the theme is the TIM Zen theme (from Italy) - and can be found/had by unlocking the vendor themes that are hidden in the OS.

    the wallpaper is mine
