You're welcome, the 9810 battery door sux, the 9800 is a bit rubbery, and has some grip so it doesn't let my phone slide all over my trucks. Get one on Amazon if you can, I think they go for about $5.00 US.
Have had my 9810since launch and the first thing i did was swap the battery door from my 9800. Would post a pic if i could figure out how to from my new PB. FYI the stock battery door is ugly and slippery.
I'm gonna get bashed for this...I just know it BUT...
I LOVE MY 9810 BATTERY DOOR!!!
I will admit it is slippery though, but it makes it look like the front and back go together, and that black stripe is just one continuous "pinstripe" around the phone...with the black cover on the back to me it looks like the front face was left over stock they threw on cuz nothing else matched lol
Besides, I have a clear red case on it, and the silver looks fantastic under the red
OEM pocket pouch is all I've ever used. Had a couple cases but they make an already bulky phone even bulkier. If I had to choose one it would be the AGF GRT case. Snaps to itself and not the device. There are many others that have clips that clip onto the screen halve and force the 2 pieces apart, stretching out the metal slider mechanism and making your slider very sloppy when taken off.
Nicest looking OEM pouch I've had for a BlackBerry, also.
I'm sporting the black back. I like the look of the original silver, but it feels cheap and doesn't provide enough grip. RIM really should have their heads on and avoid glossy/slippery doors at all costs. They also did it with all the other OS 7 devices, stupidly.
