    Cases

    Advertisement



    I bought my Pearl a week ago today, and when I was at the Cingular store the cases they had were really ugly, bulky, or offered no real protection. They had some stuff that was like iSkin(slightly sticky silicone for ipod) GROSS! Plus it didn't protect the screen at all. I really need a case, as it seems I've dropped many of the phones I've owned previously, resulting in unnecessary scuffing. So, the holster was pointless, because i could still drop it, and the skin was pointless, because it didn't protect the screen. So I looked all over the regular BB hosted sites for something, then I did a simple google search and found exactly what i was looking for. Much like my Ipod, I like the look of the device itself, and i only wanted something to protect protect my investment. I was faced with the same situation when i bought my Ipod, after a little looking around I found a hardcase, and I had the same such luck this time. A clear hard case that lets the natural beauty of the Pearl shine through, I ordered it and it should be here by tommorrow....so I will post back with my thoughts once it becomes tangible.
    Here is the link to the part of the site with the pearl cases:

    Re: Cases

    I actually have never seen the case you chose. There is a great one that is clear, and very sturdy I have heard. I think it is on bestskinsever.com ? You can also find some nic cases on that site also.

    Re: Cases

    For me, the seidio holster with extended battery, and a screen protector to protect against scratches, is the best solution. The supplied battery cover locks solid unlike the OEM one. I'm happy!!

    Just curious to know if you've received the cover yet and what your thoughts are on it? Is the plastic sturdy enough to protect the BB from an accidental fall? From the pics on the link, it looks like the case also covers the screen - is this a correct assumption? I am looking for both case and screen protector with a swivel, and this seems to fit my requirements.

    I'd really appreciate your thougths.

    Cheers!

    Re: Cases

    I recommend Fortte leather cases....they might be a little more expensive, but they are very nice. They will also imprint your name or whatever else you might want in the leather.

    yes, yes i do
    I have the aluminium one but it gets cold and warm and is a lil bulky, so I thought if this one is similar then I might switch... by the way the aluminium case protects the screen, works awesomely and I would recommend it to anyone aside from my dislikes listed above.

    I actually got this one:

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...3163&rd=1&rd=1

    Which looks almost the same. i will try to post some pics later but for the price, I think it's great. It still makes the Pearl look sexy while protecting it. It does not include a cover for the screen though.
