    rubber case after effects...

    Advertisement



    Just wanted to give a heads up to anyone thinking about using the rubberized pearl cases. After using one for the past 3 or so months I realized that it leaves a film on the top and bottom of the phone. I tried scrubbing it with rubbing alchohol but it's not goin anywhere. It's not very noticable at all, but my phone is like my car, I like to keep it sparkling clean! Late...

    I've used a rubberized case for about a month. I hope I don't get that problem later, I normally take my BB out of the case at night.

    I've been using mine for 2 1/2 months now, and I don't have this problem. I just make sure to clean both the phone and case at least once a week. I use alcohol pads, or if it's really bad I use some denatured alcohol.

    I've got one of those Hard Plastic cases with the rubberized outside...
    I'm guessing your talking about the silicone or flexible rubber case that does this.

    Either way, I'm like you and can relate...

    Try getting the gunk off, and then putting the BSE on your phone, THEN putting the case on. I have a zipper/leather case that i got off Ebay....THANK GOD I have a case on it, cause man, the plastic on the screen is scratched!!!!!! Thank GOD it's not my screen!

    Re: rubber case after effects...

    can you take a photo of the issue? i'm curious as to what kind of damage a case can do to a pearl, as i'm looking for a case for mine right now...

    i have been looking into these two:
    - http://www.seidioonline.com/index.as...ROD&ProdID=726
    - http://www.speckproducts.com/bbpearl-seethru.html

    ... but if they're going to scuff up the phone...

    Re: rubber case after effects...

    yeah it's not really damage as much as it (the flexible rubber case) left a little ''film" behind on the black parts of the pearl. Granted I had it on for 3 months or so and I took it off and on a few times but never cleaned the rubber case or anyhting assuming that the point of it was to leave it on for protection. I guess the true answer is if your using the flexible rubber case, then I would recommend taking it off and cleaning the case and the phone once a week or so. I always keep my phone in my pocket and I guess from it rubbing on the phone so much it left this "film" behind. Oh well it's really not that noticable!?!

    I have a white pearl and a pink rubber case (yes, I scream girl, woo!). but i also got a skin from skinit which covers most parts of the white on my pearl (it's purty, the skin design show through the semi-see through skin). anyway, do this and you shouldn't have a problem?

    Re: rubber case after effects...

    I got the combo from seidioonline and hope everything turns out well with my BB 8800. Especially since I had it shipped all the way to the Philippines. I'm currently using a leather case that I bought from www.senacases.com and I'm very happy with it so far.
