    tmobile gel skin

    Advertisement



    Looking to buy the "official" tmobile gel skin for my 8320 for $19.99. Looking to get some input on how this skin does against scratches and such. Does it give good protection to the phone and is it a perfect fit (nice tight fit). Any input on this would be great thanx!

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~what exactly is a official gel skin? Is it different from the OEM BB gel skins they sell at the stores?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~i was at the tmobile store the other day and they had different colored skins. They were cheap but didn't seem like they offered that much protection.

    They are mainly for netter grip, I have a black one and a sage green one...I like them, but I also use a screen protector. IMHO, 9.99 is ok, but I bought one for my wife off ebay for .99 and 4.50 shipping.

    I don't know if this deal is still going on but my local store had 2 for 1 skins last week. Worth a look at your local dealer.

    Re: tmobile gel skin

    my local store didn't have the OEM gel skins. they had the t-mo branded version. in red. so I bought it because I am obsessing over all things red this week. after using OEM gel skin w/ my 8800 I can't say I notice too much of a difference. the gel seems to be of the same quality as the OEM, and the fit is just as snug. the cut outs are a bit different (the power button has a cut out on the t-mo version, no separation between the usb and the stereo jack), but overall so far so good.

    Bought mine last week at TMO. 2 for 1 so was $10.00 plus tax out the door. Bought a dark blue and a black one. Now need a screen protector. Only problem is the gels might it too tight to use the OEM case it came with. So working on a different outer case to use with the Gels.

    I almost went with a gel skin but ended up getting the T-Mobile shell case for my Curve. I like it because it protects the screen but has access to the keyboard and ports. It was only 9.99.

    Re: tmobile gel skin

    You can check them out on the TMO website under "accessories" and then "cases."

    IMO... they are nice but not worth more than $10. Oh.. and after a while they stretch out from wear and tear and become too loose.
    But for a cheap and easy "grippy" case they are a nice buy and come in quite a few colors which is nice.
    Also as someone already mentioned eBay is much better venue to shop for these and get a better deal or package price.
