I've spent so much money buying cases & finding I did not like them. Finally ... BlackBerry Curve forum
I've spent so much money buying cases & finding I did not like them. Finally I found the _perfect_ case. Especially since I always carry mine in my pocket. It's a RexRegina Morgan model.
About $10 more than the rest, but after six months my beautiful red curve is still perfect. This case is also made from the finest leather of any BB case. No belt clip, smooth on both sides. It loads from the top (vertically) like a pouch, but covers the entire phone so no screen protector is needed. It also has thin stiffeners sewed in between the front & rear surfaces. So it protects your BB while keeping it's very thin sleek shape.
I prefer to use my BB naked, so this is the perfect solution because it's easy to remove quickly when the phone rings.

You might also want to check out www.gsm4world.us. I think their prices are a little better than cnn.cn. I have experience with cnn.cn, however, but none with the other site.

Well Archer, I looked up the RexRegina Morgan case and it looks like a pretty good case.. for when you're not using your blackberry :P
Ever since I scratched the heck out of my screen, I've wrapped my Curve in various cases.
Started with the Speck See Thru Hard Shell Case, which I liked because it offered built-in screen protection. It's a good case, but wanted to try the Seidio Rubberized Case and that's what I've been using since. The case and holster combo has worked out quite well with my Crimson Curve. Got the burgundy colored case, which, while it doesn't quite match the Crimson Curve, it's close enough to make it a good combo.
I don't care for the screen protectors that adhere to the screen, but needed something to protect my screen after fixing it up using Archer's suggestion of the Novus plastic repair kit.
I am waiting for Seidio to make this case with integrated screen protection and then it will be the PERFECT case!
I have a daughter so I always keep my berry covered!
No, my curve is almost always in my leather holster if it's not in my hand or on my desk.

How did the Speck case compare to the Seidio as far as quality and thickness?

Never used the stock pocket pouch, but purchased the OEM flap pouch, which, by the way would work with both the Speck and Seidio cases. The Seidio would stick a little with it being a rubberized case, but it fit in the case just fine. The clear plastic Speck slid in and out of it easily.

I did worry about pieces breaking off when removing the case to clean out any lint or dust that accumulated inside as it is definitely flimsier than the Seidio case. The one thing I didn't like about it is that the clear plastic would get pretty scratched up, which while it obviously protected the device from the damage, doesn't do much for looks.
The Seidio on the other hand, is thicker, seems to be pretty scratch resistant and overall feels a lot more solid. I haven't taken the case off my device as of yet, but others have said it's hard to do the first couple of times, but gets easier the more you do it, while not diminishing the quality of the case.
If you use the holster that comes with it, it has a spring action clip that holds the device in place when you mount it in the holster, which you would think would scratch the case. I can just rub it with a finger and any scuff marks seem to disappear.
Overall, I'm happy with both cases, but I think the Seidio will be the permanent fixture!
Hope this helps!
I like my Berries like my women. Nekkid, I use a camera case to carry it on my belt though, very soft.

Well, at home it's just Bare, with the exception of the BSE for the screen, when I take CC out she's protected by the Case-Mate Carbon Fiber Black Leather...
