    7250 Silver Screen Border Sux @ss!

    Advertisement



    I have the 7250...I love the unit, but I hate the silver border deal.
    I don't know why, but it is scratched and scraped hard core in a number of spots....
    What was wrong with plastic? I remember the sales guy all bragging about how it had this chrome or whatever border...
    Any one else's scratched and marked? Or am I just a little too abusive?

    Use the soft sided velcro and stick it on the inside on the plastic case. You can buy it a Radio shack in stick on strips. I've used that to protect my face it's the belt holster that defaced mine. If it's not that then yes you must be a bit rough on your bb

    I've had my 7520 now for a week and the holster is starting to polish some spots on the metal border. I can tell that if I get lazy and debris ends up in the holster the face will get messed up quick. Thanks for the velcro tip, I'm going to preempt and save this this from it's inevitable disfigurement.

    I personally think even the most gentle person can scratch up their BB's face when using the plastic holser on that series BB. I have a boss that uses the 7520 and it is all scratched up, but she isnt hard on her phone, its the constant removal of the phone that cause the scratching and scuffing.

    AGREED! I NEVER use a plastic holster for that reason

    I ditched the plastic holster and bought a leather case from ebay that has a plastic front....

    I put a few strips of electrical tape inside the plastic holster, so now its the sliver border against electrical tape instead of just up against the hard plastic. Had my BB almost a year and I did this the first week. Still looks good.

    The chrome strip is a known problem with the units. The corner of mine peeled up and sliced my thumb. Verizon will swap the unit out if you complain to them. I don't know about other carriers.
