    It is a really awesome case for those looking for basic protection. The corners are covered and it gives basic bump protection.

    I'm open for any questions you may have in the mean time if you are thinking about getting the case.

    Case-Mate BlackBerry Storm2 9550 Barely There Cases (Case-Mate BB9550BT), BlackBerry Storm2 9550 Cases, Holsters, Skins, and Accessories in Premium Leather

    Unfortunately, CrackBerry doesn't stock the case, so I wasn't able to order mine from there.

    That's exactly the type of case I'm looking for. Unfortunately, they're not offered in red >_<. What color did you order yours in? Could you post up a picture of it on your phone instead of the rendering they have on the website?

    edit: Also what material is made of? Metal, plastic, etc

    As soon as the video is uploaded, I will take a full plethora of pics. (SD card is occupied with the upload)

    It is a plastic material with a matte finish on the back.

    I ordered mine in the Deep Blue Matte color.

    Hm I may look into the matte black one. The blue looked pretty good in the render. Does it look pretty similar in person? The photo they give is pretty vivid

    It is a very vivid blue. I like the color.

    Hm I kinda wish they offered it in red. I guess blue will have to do though. The silver looks like it would be **** for fingerprints haha

    Sick. I'll probably be ordering the case tonight if all goes well. I wonder if there are any plans to produce a red colored case

    Damn, looks good, I was waiting for an Incipio feather, this may be just the next best thing, and available now. I will check the video, if it is just like the feather, I am ordering.

    It is just like the feather, but honestly, built better. I had a feather for my ipod touch, and it cracked. This feels stronger.

    Guarantee it wasn't the Case-Mate one. It wasn't only recently released.

    Do they still offer them? What did you pay for yours?

    Also the youtube video isn't working for me for some reason. I'm going to try in FF instead of Chrome and see I can view it then

    They aren't on VZW's site, and they aren't case-mate.

    Video is still being processed...up to youtube now...be patient, it will work.

    Ok, I ordered, need a case, this is it. If you search for the case using Bing shopping, you get 10% cash back, so the price is actually $17, but you don't get the $3 right away, see bing cash back terms. Sooner or later, you do.

    Just got one of these before Christmas and aside from the minor difficulty getting
    it of it is an amazing accessory. And it sure lives up to it's name. The screen
    protector is a bonus.

    All in all I am very satisfied.

    Awesome, thanks for the review!

    I ended up not liking the bulkiness of the case I got for my s2 when I bought it, but this looks more like what I am looking for.

    Also I wanted to give the theme you have a try but am having a hard time finding it - couple I please get a link for that also?

    Hmm looks pretty good to me. I'll be ordering one in blue as well. Just wish they had a red one available haha

    edit: Looking at Verizon's website, they have one that's very similar (if not identical) to this one in red. Too bad its out of stock. I'm going to head over to a store tomorrow to see if I have some luck finding a red one. If not, I guess I'll be ordering a blue one haha

    That's fine if you want to order from VZW. It's irrelevant though as this thread is solely about the Case Mate Barely There. Don't let the troll make your decision for you. for $3.00 more, you get a brand name. The VZW may be similar to the Incipio Feather, which cracked on me during normal use. This Case-Mate version feels different


    What screen protector do you have? Cause you said you made your own.. just wondering.
    I bought this: Power Support Anti Glare Film for iPod touch (2nd Gen.) - Apple Store (U.S.) for my iPod Touch and had a spare one, and cut mine out of that. Pretty awesome protector too.

    I'm going to move the thread to Accessories

    Also if someone wants to present a similar competing product please start your own thread for it.


    EDIT: On second thought moved it to Community Reviews, Acessories
