Cases for BB 9900
Hey everyone. This is my first post. I love my 9900 but finding the right case seems to be a problem for me. I particularly like white cases but black ones are ok too. So which kinds do you guys have and where can I find some good ones at? Thanks in advance.

The BlackBerry hard shell that RIM makes is good, available in white and fits the 9900 well. I occasionally use one but mostly go with the pocket pouch.

Case-Mate POP! Case for BlackBerry Bold 9930, Bold 9900 | BlackBerry Cases
Case-Mate Pop Case is in black and white/grey. I have the white one. I just wish Otterbox and Case-Mate would make other colors like yellow and blue like they do for the iPhones.

These are my cases for my bold 9900
The white and black are the OEM cases that fit like a second skin and easy to remove and put back on.
The pink on is case mate.....love this one alot.
The blue one is incipio, it fits tightly....but looks good when on.
The silver one is also casemate and gives my phone a professional look...

I have 7 cases for my Bold, of all varieties. Not sure exactly what you are looking for. A case mainly for looks, for protection, a little of both, etc. I'll share my feedback
-2 OEM hard cases (black and white): Solid cases, mainly for looks though. I like the white one over the black. Does offer pretty good protection for drops.
-OEM TPU case (black): Surprisingly good protection, though the lock button is harder to use.
-Otterbox Communter: This case offers great protection in a very slim package. The best of both worlds. The only thing is: it is nearly impossible to get off haha.
-Otterbox Impact: It is basically just a thick silicone case with Otterbox's name on it.
-Seidio Convert: If you want maximum protection, this is a case for you. If you take off the outer 2 layers, it can be used with the Seidio dock.
-Ballistic SG: By far, my favorite case. Excellent protection for 360 degree drops and falls. It doesn't get overly dusty, only on the top and bottom edges. It is made so you can type without restriction and it just feels right.
I tend to use the Ballistic case 24/7, but sometimes switch for like half a day in case I am in the mood for something else hahaI post the truth.

I use the leather holster for mine I find it protects my bold but let's me use it naked. It also very convenient having it on my side all day!

Here are the ones I've used:
OEM soft shell: Thin and doesn't add a lot of bulk. Provides a little extra grip, made of a flexible textured TPU-like material. Some of the buttons and the side and top of the phone require a little more push to use.
OEM hard shell (used currently with my personal 9900 with a slightly stretched OEM holster): Again, thin and doesn't add much bulk. To the untrained eye, it'll look almost like a naked Bold. Has a nice looking BlackBerry logo and a dot matrix pattern on the back. Made mainly of hard plastic, so is a little slippery in hand when gripped certain ways. Side and top buttons are easier to press than on the soft shell.
Otterbox Commuter: Great protection in a relatively slim package. Adds a raised lip around the front of the phone so you can put it face down. Exposed silicone portions can pick up a little bit of dust. Pretty hard to get off once it's on.
Casemate Pop (used currently on my work 9900): Very similar to the Commuter but is one piece and easier to get on and off the phone. Rubber lip around the front doesn't pick up dust. Back is glossy and prone to scratching.The abused: 8703-8130-8330-9630-9800-9900-Z10

Didn't like the otterbox cases...too bulky IMO. I stuck with the barely there case mate case and love it. I think they did a video review on it. Maybe it was Kevin. I think he was impressed that the case still had the BB logo on the back.
That's what I recommend unless you need more protection.
