Thinnest 9900 case?
What's the thinnest case for the Blackberry 9900? Right now I'm rocking my holster, but for those days where I don't wear pants with something to clip the holster on, I use the Casemate Pop case. I absolutely love the sleek feel without a case, so now I'm looking for a new case that makes it feel like it's naked. Leaning towards the Casemate barely there, unless there's an even thinner case out there?

Depends on what you want exactly..some cases leave the top and bottom of the phones exposed; whereas, others will protect the full 'outside' of the device..
In terms of "thinnest"..I can't see it getting any less thin than the OEM BB Soft Shell - someone correct me if I'm wrong on that..this case is one that protects the entire outside of the phone except for a tiny sliver of the bezel..give it a look.

i have the soft case OEM and i have the barely there casemate. the casemate fits inside my wallet/pouch whereas the soft case makes it too large.
my assessment: barely there case > soft case OEM
i would reccomend the barely there case. i believe you can find it on amazon for $15 USD. the soft shell i bought at a tmobile store for $5. they do a buy two get one free at a lot of locations so i bought screen protectors for >$10 for a total of $15 for a case and two sets of screen protectors.

definitely the Case Mate Barely There.
I used to have the Otterbox Commuter, but it was too covered. Then I went caseless for a while until I discovered the Barely There.
I love my Barely There case. If you get one, get it in White. It looks amazing!

Yup! Its shows off the beautiful metal band lol
I actually like that because it really is beautiful. When its covered it makes the phone look like any old Blackberry. Covering the bezel also gives the illusion of thickness.
That's why I think the Barely There case is perfect if you don't wanna add bulk.

The OEM soft and hard shells are fairly thin, and though they may not be the absolute thinnest, they do protect the entire back and sides while not looking like there's a case on your Bold at all. Most people I encounter who don't know BlackBerry models well actually think there's no case on because of the way they look (especially the hard shell).The abused: 8703-8130-8330-9630-9800-9900-Z10
