skin that lets bold fit in OEM case
I am looking for a skin and case combo that will function together. The OEM silicon skins for Curve would allow the skinned Curve to fit into the OEM BB leather case but this doesnt work for the Bold and its OEM case. The Bold OEM case wont stretch, so its kinda tough to add a skin to the mix.
Does someone know of a case that would accept a skinned Bold?
Here is a link to a few skin+case options.
I use it and it works great.
does the case have the magnet silencer, and does the bb fit with screen facing in and out?

cool. just bought the combo... and there is 10% off orders more than $50 until jan 31st.
Does the Seidio leather case have grooves in it for the trackball to slide into like the oem BB case?

I use a seido innocase with the original holster. It was tight at first, but not bad now.
i do the same thing as kevinb1 and it works fanstastic!!
I have the OEM case that came with my Bold. Managed to stretch the case with the skin on. Tight fitting at first. After a week or so, the leather expanded just enough I am able to take it and out easily. The Seidio case that was recommended is good to try out too.
The Seidio combo just arrived in the mail... couldnt be more disappointed. Now I have to spend to ship it back. The skin, which isnt a flexible rubber, has a very poor fit and makes battery pulls beyond annoying. Also, there is no silencing magnet feature of the case. No matter which way I put the Bold in the case, the screen remains lit.
What a waste, $55 down the drain... DONT BUY THIS PRODUCT!
If you are easily swayed by others on the forum, like I was, try and find one in person to see or try before you buy. The steam is rising...

Every Seidio case I have owned includes the sleeper magnet. The Bold combo case is supposed to include the sleeper function per this link:
this case is superior to everything else I have seen on the market (IMO) for the following reasons:
- the case almost never scratches
- the case does not accumulate dirt like the soft rubber cases do
- the holster skin combo is very convenient.
How often do you need to do a battery pull? I do it once or twice a month at most.
ok, but the one that arrived on my doorstep doesnt function properly then... poor quality control

as for battery pull, thats a rim issue not seidio, but the snap together surface skin wont tolerate continuous separation and reattachment for even 1-2 times a month.
