    Skin recommendation

    Advertisement



    Hello all,

    Are there any good skins for the 8130 that do not require using a liquid solution? I'm not too enthusiastic about using liquid on my new friend, and definitely not happy about having to not turn it on for 24-48 hours.

    Thanks,

    well they make gel kins for the pearl and the curve and i'm sure that they make them for the 8130 or if the 8100 skins will fit but the skins cover the back and the sides. theres no glues or sticky messes. they go on and come off easily and does a great job protecting my devices.here are a few pictures of what they look like with my curve and pearl

    Don't be shy...once you try a Best Skin Ever you will never go back! It does not really use a liquid solution...just dip the skin in water and apply -- more like applying a decal to a model car .

    I'll look into the gel skins.

    And there's still water involved in the BSE's. And there's still a 24 hour waiting period. I'm really tempted but still cautious.

    I have NEVER seen anyone have any issues with the water part of the install on the BSE products....

    The waiting period isn't that long...if you do it correctly it and let it sit for like and hour you should be good to go.

    Yep, the wait is not 24 hours...most of us ~ impatient as we are did not wait that long. An hour tops, in fact I had powered mine back up within 1/2 hour

    It's nice to know that there are other impatient, semi-neurotic people in the world that share my love of gadgets. This place just feels like home.

    I may just give in and try those. I suppose I have to sleep sometime. Might as well put that time to good use (for drying). I mean that's a good 2-3 hours, right?

    I was to anxious to go to sleep after putting my BSE on, I think I waited about 20 minutes before I decided to hell with it.

    Re: Skin recommendation

    OK, thank you all. I just placed an order for a couple of all body skins (not for me - for the Pearl). We'll see how well I can apply one and then pry myself away from it for a nap or something while it dries.

    Re: Skin recommendation

    I received my skins today. I didn't really stick to my plan; I applied it this afternoon (about 25 minutes ago now). I have it sitting kind of under a lamp right now (I'm not baking it). I'm kind of disappointed that it doesn't have pieces for the side of the device. I just checked their website, and I swear I didn't see the "red" coverage area when I originally ordered it, but so be it. Application of the skins wasn't too hard. I don't think I got too much water in undesirable places.
