    Maybe it just too small for my hands but it it has managesd to slip out of them a couple of times since i ve got it. Other than that i love it: ).I now have a nice chip on the top ,near the speaker phone andunderneathe the keypad. Anyone know where i can get a replacement front cover for the pearl , is it something that can be switched out?

    Anyone else with chips and scratches and what did you do about it?

    I leave 'em...Gives ur phone character...Battle scars baby! Unless of course it happens to the screen which would suck...Had that happen on a 7105 and it drove me nuts because it effected the view of the screen.

    You may want to check with a neurologist and see if you have a neurological disorder. I drop stuff all the time when I think I have a good grip on it. Come to find out, I have degenerative disk disease and it affects my grip.

    Agghh! I've dropped my baby Pearl a number of times. (fell out of my shirt pocket when I bent down once or twice) - she's a sturdy lil puppy actually. I agree with battle scar comment - hehe

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~i did the same on my 7520, dropped it and it flew accross the parkinglot. Have not got it fixed yet either. You might try a local service dealer. A lot of times they have face plates on the shelf for repairs. Hopefully they got one for the pearl, that's if you can't deal with it.

    You can add insurance within the first 14 days. When you call to add, do NOT tell them the handset has damaged already or they won't add it

    I dont think its worth going through insurance for a nick at the top. Just wait a few weeks, i gaurantee someone will come out with a Clear/black, Blue, red whatever color replacement case for it. Just have to give it time. OR call RIM up and ask them for replacement parts if you really want a new case.

    I dropped my Pearl and then accidently kicked it across floor. I screamed like a little girl, which I am not. It left a nick in that fake chrome piece on top of the phone. (What is that thing?)
    The only thing to do is to protect your phone from the next drop. I ordered the screen guard from Seidio, and got a generic-but-awesome holster at the mall. I should have done this as soon as I got my phone.

    Crystal case

    Hi I got this from Sedio and it protects the Pearl pretty good. I also put a screen saver on it since the scren is unprotected.

    Check out sedioonline.com search for blackberry and check for crystal case , it comes in clear,smoke and pink.
