    OEM Accessories

    Advertisement



    Considering how much I have seen spent on different cases/pouches/holsters, etc. and batteries on the Stacks, my suggestion to RIM would be the following on every BB after the 8800:

    1) Batteries. 1 OEM slim battery or 1 OEM extended battery. Light users can get the slim battery and us power users can get the extended battery with the phone.

    2) Holsters/Cases/Pouches. Please allow us to choose what type of case we want when ordering the BlackBerry. I love the holsters that came with my 7100T and 7105T. I also love the Open Face Cases from Fortte, eAccess.com, T-Mobile, etc.

    Can we get these with our phones instead of having to order after we get the phone and find out what we need?? I would be on cloud nine considering I have:

    3 open face cases (2 for my 7100 and 1 for my Pearl);

    4 pouches (2 OEM for my 7100; 1 I bought from Krusell and hated; and 1 I bought for my Pearl from T-Mo);

    and 6 batteries (2 extended and 4 slim).

    I would love to see this ability to choose accessories LOL

    I think I have spent more on cases, pouches and batteries for my BlackBerry devices than the phones themselves LMAO

    Heh...RIM makes too much money selling you items AFTER you already purchase.

    Kind of like when the Pearl was launched on TMOBILE and the people who went out and got it were screwed because there WAS no case.

    Atleast Cingular was nice enough to provide BlackJack owners with an extra battery since the batteries in them were whacked.

    I'm just thankful they still INCLUDE cases AND batteries...Some day soon I wouldn't be surprised if they stop including batteries in the boxes and make you purchase them seperately!

    *Batteries not included.... :-D

    My Pearl came with no case, holster, etc. NOTHING to hold it. I had to buy the 2 cases I have for it now. That's what I was referring to.

    Lol I agree with you on the pearl! Even if it was a crappy one, ANY case would have been a plus.

    When I bought my pearl I paid $50 for a bundled leather magnetic case, bt headset, and car charger from tmo. Not a bad deal.

    This is a consumer device and they know (hope) that people will want to purchase lots of extras for it. Not including a case increases the profit of each unit a great deal given the markups typical at retail cell phone stores on things like this.

    How many sales are lost because it does not come with a case? None would be my guess.
