    For what I paid for it, my phone gets the case treatment.

    i have a rubber case for my pearl and loving it.
    No way to get a single mark on it. Everything covered except the screen but using a screen protector and yeah!!

    I prefer the Seidio skin and screen protector. Every now and then, I wear track pants, and dislike having to clip a case to the waistband. Also, I simply dislike breaking the lines of anything I'm wearing with a belt clip and case. (You can blame that last bit of strangeness on OCD)

    Black metal case for me (on pdair.com) : the pearl is very well protected but one problem remains : it has completely ruined the look of the pearl.... ! So I decided to order on bestskinever (not received the skin yet)

    I have a hard case and the skin. I like the skin better because it makes the skin feel less bulky, and its easier to use. I am very got at dropping things lol so i use the hard case most of the time. The only bad thing about the hard case is that the "leather" is wearing off of all edges and i have only had it about 2 years.

    Please do a search for Best skins Ever, BSE, and/or Shield Zone. These skins are a must-have. They are invisible, and make the Pearl a bit grippier. They don't add to the size or weight at all, and will *keep* your Pearl clean. Otherwise, I can guarantee your Pearl will get dinged or scratched at some point. Plus, the BSE's are only $7, and every Pearl owner should use them (IMO)! They're that good.

    But doesn't a leather case add to battery life?

    I mean when you "holster" the pearl from what i understand it goes into standby mode. Therefor extending the battery life. I have a simple t-mobile leather case right now and I like it but will look into these best skin ever skins.

    Oh & if vajacases start making RIM cases I'd pony up for one. Their leather stylings are just damn sexy as hell!

    Vaja better hurry up, they will definitely come out with a cool case, but will it have the sleep magnets?

    Probably will have magnets. Vaja does make sweet cases, and does them well. I have several for now-defunct devices. Got one for my old Palm VX, another old pda, and one for my Sony HD5 DAP.

    BTW, will standby mode (pressing th emute button) save battery power like th emagnet sleep mode?

    Re: Pearl Cases vs SPearl Skins

    I bought the best skins ever full body kit. I think it is the form if protection out there.. I want to say I have taken them off and reapplied them several times. To protect the silver sides, I just bought the blue OEM silicone skin!!!! All in all, my investment is well taken care of.
