    I Need A Cradle For My Pearl

    Advertisement



    I have decided to purchase a cradle for my Pearl. Tired of laying the thing face up or face down while charging (leading to an even more scratched screen than it currently has). Which one is everyone using? I would preferably prefer one that will:

    1) Charge and sync my Pearl
    2) Look good (Aesthetics are important...not too bulky)
    3) Fit the 8120 or 91xx
    4) Not break the bank to order it

    I have looked at Seidio's cradles but didn't see one that fit my needs. I need feedback on other brands (I see a few on eaccess.com I like) before I commit to one cradle. Thanks.

    Re: I Need A Cradle For My Pearl

    I have found a few I like. The first comes WITH or WITHOUT a USB cord.

    Charging Pod: http://www.eaccess-estore.com/store/....asp?item=2081 (this one also comes without a USB cord)

    Charging Buddy: http://www.eaccess-estore.com/store/....asp?item=1866

    Cradle Kit: http://www.eaccess-estore.com/store/...g.asp?item=893

    I contacted eaccess to find out which one will work with my extended batteries. Whichever one they recommend, I will purchas unless someone else has a better idea.

    Honestly it looks absolutely amazing on my desk. I knew I had to have it as soon as I saw it as I love to display my phone. But I liked the fact that it had practical use as it doubles as a charger. I mainly use it as a stand on usually dont even plug in the charger since my curve has great battery life. It sits on my desk grab it to text and just look to pick up the phone with my BT headset.

    That's the one I was looking at. I am waiting for eaccess to email me back and confirm I can use a Seidio OEM Sized Extended Battery with it.

    Thanks also for the link to crackberry.com. Looked there and saw I can save almost $10 on the same cradle. I'm happy

    I have the shiny one from crackberry site. It works well but there is no syncing only charging. Mine didnt come with an extra cable. Also if you use any seidio case with it , it will not fit. I sold mine and pre ordered the new seidio online cradle that holds both the curve with and without the case.

    Re: I Need A Cradle For My Pearl

    I keep my Pearl in it's pouch when I am not using it (T-Mo's OEM Vertical Pouch with Mangetic Flap Closure). I also have a tri-pack of T-Mo OEM gel skin cases.

    I have 2 or 3 USB cables laying around (this cradle also comes in a variation WITH a USB cable. That version is available on www.eaccess.com and go to Order BlackBerry Accessories on the left side of the screen).

    I purchased the cradle without the USB cord. Should be here sometime Tuesday. Thanks for the feedback and help.

    Re: I Need A Cradle For My Pearl

    I got my cradle for my Pearl and it's a tight fit with the Slim Extended Battery. Now my Pearl has a permanent stand so it's no longer face up or face down on my desk or nightstand. I may have to go back to the OEM battery that came with the Pearl until I get this battery with my 8120 LOL http://www.seidioonline.com/index.as...ROD&ProdID=971

    I finally figured out how to use my Pearl with my Slim Extended Battery in this cradle. It's working perfectly.
