    Question Hard cover vs Skin Decal

    Advertisement



    Ok, I have a pink cover over my 8310 right now. I like it because it is tough and had the rubbery feeling. However, I want a Camo cover for my phone and so far, I can't find one except on Ebay and it has the hole in the back for a clip. I did find a Skin Decal (decalgirl, I think) and it nice but I wonder how good it is. Do they hurt your device in any way? Would it void warranty?

    Any suggestions on who has the best skins for a Blackberry? Or do you know where I can get a snap on cover for my BB but in Camo, Army camo not the Mossy Oak stuff.

    BTW, I am a proud Military wife and I have a purse made out of my hubby's old uniform, ID holder to match, along with a checkbook, so now I want my BB to match. Yes, I am crazy.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    For protection -- the case/silicone skin is the best option. I just received my decalgirl skin for my ipod nano and while its top grade vinyl, I don't think its going to offer much protection (for dropping and such). Have you checked the local malls in your area? You know they have those kiosks located in the aisle ways of most malls and the malls here in cali have cell phone accessory vendors. I've noticed lately that they have a ton of blackberry cases now along with the ones for reg phones. Maybe check there too?

    I haven't checked the mall lately. The last time I looked they didn't have a camo one. I am pretty good about not dropping my phone but I still like some kind of protection.

    BTW, how do you put the skin on? On one site I read where you had to apply water, um no thanks.

    The skin from decalgirl is a vinyl sticker (much like what you would put on a store window or auto window. It has adhesive (that according to website will not leave residue) to stick to bb.

    The bestskinsever.com skin does require water. Its invisible and not reusable.

    Or you could try http://www.colorwarepc.com/
    and then cover it with this:
    http://www.seidioonline.com/index.as...ROD&ProdID=786
    That would be pretty cool
    More expensive, but custom and worth it.

    Or I could by the camo vinyl and use the clear casing. That is a good idea. I will do some research and calculations!

    BTW, I am trying to get all camo stuff for my purse. I have a purse made out of my hubby's uniform, along with an ID holder. I bought a checkbook cover off ebay so now I am trying to "camo" my BB. LOL

    You could, but keep in mind the Seidio case will be a tight fit with the vinyl. I have the BSE on and it was a real tight fit just to get the case to snap on and the bse is not thick at all. I'm sure the vinyl covers are a lot thicker so I'm not sure if the Seidio will fit over it.

    That is the skin I like. If only I could find a hard cover like that W/O the hole in the back for a clip! I have looked for a clear cover, besides the one mentioned, and they have all the hole in the back. I will keep looking though!

    I just saw a phone that had stickers on it and the Seidio case. She said it fit perfect, she even had stickers that went in between her keys. I will order the case and skin next week when I get paid. I am excited!
