i'm just curious how many people keep their 9900 or blackberry in general naked. I'm a clean freak so I love my case on at all times and i'm constantly wiping mine trying to keep it clean lol. but every now and then, i would rock it without the case on...only around the house cuz it's carpeted and all that lol. But please, I'd like to know. And also, do you have a screen protector on yours?

Naked. No protector. Everything is pretty much scratch free except the battery cover. Had it since Verizon released it. I do have a spare sitting in the desk drawer - just in case.
I can't make my mind up, I use an OB Commuter a lot but also go naked when feeling brave.
Seems a shame to cover such a lovely looking handset up but until I deburr the metal edge it feels better in the case.
I like how it looks when it has a case, so I always have one on it. I have a few cases, too. I only use the TPU cases since I think they're pretty cute and super cheap. Good for everyday protection, too.
Wish I trusted myself enough to keep it naked. However having tried this several years back with a beautiful, shiny new red 8330 curve, I learned my lesson. Dropped it on day 1 and scratched it on the top. Keeping my 9930 in the OEM soft shell (which I really love btw). No screen protector tho.
Well, I WAS keeping it naked (had it since AT&T finally released). Had never had issues with the naked 9000 - had to put back cover and battery back on numerous times after dropping over couple years, but never any cracks, etc.
Dropped the 9900 a few times (too slim and slick for its own good!), but never noticed damage. Until a couple of days ago. Have a long crack near top of screen, left to right. More troublesome is small chip near the LED. Rut-roh...
Have a half-dozen cases ordered (from CB, of course). Got to see which is the slimmest, yet still has a bit of "bumper" to protect his beautiful screen. Don't like screen protectors, but may have to do that, too. So once the case is decided, a new glass has been ordered from phone docs, and everything will be like new again.
Oh, well - couple hundred $$$ later, lot smarter...
Have been using a case bought from Verizon when I bought the phone. It is relatively light, hard, clips on the back, has a folding easel stand and fits into a second component holster that I haven't used. But just received the faux leather replacement battery cover that is a really nice look, softens the back a bit, and may encourage me to try going naked. (The phone - won't discuss my preference.)
