I bought the original Defender case and got scratches on it then I went to the Commuter. On a whim I then got a skin from the VZW store and put it in my old 9900 case. LOVE this combination!!!! When I have it in my purse it's protected and when it's on my desk it retains the slim form factor. And the gel is grippy and gives the device a nice extra weight, just enough to keep it feeling solid without it feeling too slick.Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for thou art crunchy, and good with ketchup
Isn't it amusing how people who claim to not enjoy CB at all simply can't stay away???? It's because it's CRACKBERRY, the BEST BB site....

I use the Case-Mate Pop!
I've got quite a collection and finally found one I love. It's hard on the back and the buttons are easily pressed. I have it in white and will probably grab the grey for a variation later.

I bought an Otterbox but it was doing too much (lol at too much protection) and taking away from the phone's sleekness.
I now use the Case Mate Barely There in White and I LOVE IT.
It compliments the phone very well, still allowing the metal band to show and add very little to no bulk!

I've been taking my 9900 naked lately, but only bc I hate the thickness that any case adds onto the phone.
For example, I recently bought the Otterbox Commuter and it made my phone sooo fat that I stopped using it after the first day (btw, I'm selling it for $30 with shipping, if you anybody is interested).
I have a bunch of snap-on cases I got on ebay for a few bucks each, but I get bored of them too easily.
When I go to church or I'm dressed up, my 9900 is always in my OEM holster.
After seeing that picture of the Casemate, I think I might get it now. It's sooo sexy, haha!

Lol! Its been replaced with my white Case Mate Barely There.
I just keep my Otterbox with me in case I feel like my phone may be in danger lol
I was able to get my Otterbox case for about $25 online. Its definitely worth it if you want overall protection.
I got my Case Mate for $22 from Brookstone online.

I just went to Amazon and ordered a Black POP! For $17.20 including shipping.
I just wanted to chime in on the openings for the Flash & Camera when people are looking at the cases. When you buy a case with a large rectangle for the camera/flash panel, it will have finger prints on it "All The Time" and it will require constant cleaning. Cleaning the rectangular panel will be a pain too because dust and residue will build up around the edges. Long story short, you will always be taking photos/videos through a dirty lens cover.
The two small openings like the POP! and Commuter have will keep the lens and flash clean since you can't reach them with your finger tips when you hold the phone and they will stay clean. It will also eliminate the need to constantly clean your camera panel. Just wipe it down when you have the ocassional need to remove your battery and your good to go.

that case mate pop in white looks pretty sharp but it looks like it would be hard to press the lock button on top since its covered.
heres my iSkin Aura but I also have an otterbox commuter, CaseMaTE barely there black brushed aluminum, and the OEM BB Hardshell in Black. This Aura is my favorite though

I continue to be the only one that loves the Seidio Surface because it fits in there cradle.
I can't be without a charging cradle. I also own the Incipio barely there and
I love it as well because its lighter. But it won't work in my Seidio or BB oem Cradles,
so I only use the Surface.

I've been using mine naked since I got the phone. I didn't have any scratches happening earlier but got some scratches on my battery door now. I think I'm going to pick up the OEM case, but that casemate case does look sleek.
