    Just received my OtterBox 1936 for the BB 8130. I am impressed. It went together very easy. I used the membrane and it went on without a hitch. the opening for the trackball was not covered and it lined up perfectly. The case was a little difficult to snap together with the membrane in place but it is definitely secure and the membrane does not move around. When completely assembled this thing does not add much bulk to the Pearl and feels very comfortable in my hand. I don't have large hands and using the keyboard is not a real problem. It sits securely in the holster and goes to sleep when inserted. I wasn't sure I would like the yellow color, but looking at it now it doesn't look bad at all. It is well worth the money for the protection it offers. I'm not going to test it by dropping it or anything like that. I'm convinced that is is well protected.

    What is the difference between the Pearl going to sleep and the screen turning off after a pre-set time? The reason I ask is I've read about some older OtterBox holsters not putting the Pearl to sleep. Is there a difference?

    the screen turning off is just that, nothing more. going to sleep is it actually entering a lower power mode, probably by throttling back cpu speed.

    I just got mine in the mail earlier today.. I couldn't be happier with it.. especially since I like to keep my new toys looking as new for as long as I can. I dont see anything bad happening to it unless somehow I drop it in the pool or something... lol *knocks on wood*

    And It really doesnt make it feel bulkier at all....

    I received my Otterbox today in the mail as well and must say that I am happy with the purchase. I decided to leave the membrane off because of the bubbles on the screen(I have a BSE) and I was worried how it would impact pic.quality(8330). How does the white coverings over the earpiece and speaker effect sound quality?

    Some people have reported echoing when they talk, but I can say there is no difference in sound quality.

    As I answered in your other thread, you got the 8300 series. Otter box should take off the compatible with 8330 device, it will not work...

    Does the supplied otterbox holster for curve activate the standby mode?

    I got mine a few days ago. Overall, I like it. Except the membrane. I followed the instructions to get rid of the bubbles, but i notice the membrane had two areas where there are some imperfection during production.... it looks a hairline bubble in two areas... oh well.....
