    What do you think is the best skin for the 8130. I don't want to bulk it up as I want to be able to put in in my pocket but want something to protect it if I drop it. Wondering what others are using.

    thanks

    I use the silicone skins that can be found at the CB.com Store.
    They come in different colors.
    I like it because it fits still in my cargo shorts pockets I can even put my BB w/ skin on (lol) in the BB holster case that is on my purse strap.
    I dont like bulk either and I was concerned as well.

    Be aware that the 8130 would require a different skin than the 8100. The camera is located in a different position.

    For now, your best bet would be the Verizon Store @ 12.99

    gib where did you get your case? which model...

    i may be obsessing,,, i havent found the perfect one yet...

    i got my new silicone ones and they are sweet. i have the seidio that works with a skinned berry...

    i also got the sena leather case but it was so tight i almost couldnt get the 8130 in it... so i made a phone "blank" by cutting out a deck of index cards to the size of my 8130 and put them into the leather to stretch it out like a shoe tree.. it worked... cut them 1mm oversize and 8130 slides in and out like a glove...

    only problem with sena leather case is they said it had a magnet to put berry to sleep...but it either doesnt or it doesnt work...

    oh well..

    I still don't have anything yet. The case i was gonna get was form fitted for the old pearl, which obviously is a no dice. Gotta wait now though, my fun $$ got re-directed to the poor sister in college. I am gonna try and sneak a skin when no one is looking though

    I would like to see a picture of the seidio. Is that the one with the belt clip and does the belt clip come off?

    The seidio I have that works with a skinned berry has a clip that does not come off...
