    Hey fellow BB addicts...
    In light of recent events, I will certainly give in to the fact that I am probably a nooooob...

    I feel like I have ordered a hundred things off amazon, etc. meant to fit/work with the 8330 curve, and nothing has worked! Ex: multiple skins and hard cases that claim to be compatible with multiple versions of the curve, including mine (vzw 8330)

    One hard case of mine (a zebra one that i was particularly fond of) broke and wouldve scratched my BB had i not had it covered with invisible shield...

    What do we do about figuring out which accessories/programs/etc. REALLY DO work with our new 8330s?

    I know VZW's curve just came out-could it possibly be THAT different from other 8330s that somehow the VZW version forfeits all guarantees of items to fit '8330's???

    *sniffle*
    i guess we can't believe everything we read?

    I don't aim to flood, but the VZW 8330 looks very similar to the AT&T 8310... I have the red one I think it's just damn shnazzy :P so I just use a screen protector and what not... however I'm not sure if the cases for the 8310 will fit or not... like I stated above they seem Identicle, probably just a software difference (i.e. carrier info). perhaps you can find somewhere around like a wireless toys that will let to try on a few skins that way you can reference the model numbers and see which cases actually fit?

    Speaking of which... now I want to get a case.. O.o, subliminal messaging?

    Same problem here I thought the 8330 was the same body as other curves just software and branding diff. But the hard case I bought and like doesn't quite fit comety right

    The CDMA 8330's have a slightly different body style then other curves. Seidio has recently released CDMA 8330 specific cases, go check them out.

    Our screens are a little taller and the LED placement is different.

    Yes, they will. Just send them a note and all should be good. I've had great luck with them.

    what happened is all the accessory companies ASSumed that the 8330 would be compatible with all other Curve cases. That's it. Now that they are finding out that there is a slight size difference (& LED is in different place), they will have to go & manufacture new ones. I would simply ask them, was this made for the 8330 or for all other Curves. If you see a site which groups ALL Curve cases in one, then I'd say it won't work.

    If you look qt the 2 devices next to each other, you can see the very small differences, mainly in the screen/led placement. Also, notice that the 8330 is bigger.LOL

    The last part was a poor attempt at humor.

    I got my Curve from VZW but all the had was junk for cases. Went to the ATT store and bought a case and it fits fine. Also it puts the Curve into sleep mode. I don't care about the led being covered, since I'm looking at often anyway.
