    I am getting my Bold soon. Could someone please show me a really good, reliable, quality screen protecter? I was thinking of this one: http://shop.crackberry.com/case-mate...medium=content

    Can someone also show me which skin/case is good for the Bold? I was thinking of this one: http://shop.crackberry.com/blackberr...medium=content

    I need a case that will fit in the OEM BlackBerry Bold holster; this holster: http://shop.crackberry.com/blackberr...medium=content

    Also, would you recommend that I get this charger?: http://shop.crackberry.com/blackberr...medium=content

    If you do a search you'll find countless threads with countless opinions on cases and screens.

    I think all of your choices are golden. Sultan has a good suggestion as well for the screen protector.

    All I can speak to is the charger - and it's a big yes. My favourite accessory for sure. I have two now.

    Great! I saw that for some screen protectors (like BSE) you have to use water to put it on. Can this harm the device? Are there any screen protectors which I can just put on right away?

    If done properly there is no issue. Comes with all the instructions to do it, battery being removed is the key..... I am not sure what screen protectors go on dry so to speak.....

    Ok. And is this case(http://shop.crackberry.com/blackberr...medium=content) any good or can you suggest a better one?

    If I get the BSE total coverage for the screen and the phone, will it be able to fit in this case?

    All depends what kind of case you want.

    Cases are subjective and every type has it's pro's and cons.
    Rubber/latex cons:
    -attract lint like crazy.
    -only protects the sides/back
    -bulks the size of the device a decent amount
    -some of them can start tearing after a while
    -obviously can't be totally transparent, so it changes the look of your phone.

    pros:
    -cheap
    -good shock absorbption
    -no risk of the case scratching the phone in any way
    -no plastic tabs that can break
    -case doesn't fly off when dropped like some plastic cases can

    skin case + leather flap holster is overkill... It probably wouldn't fit either.

    Ok. Also, if I were to get the BSE total skin coverage (RIM Blackberry 9000 Bold Skin) would it fit in the case that you previously saw?

    No reason to get a fully body BSE if you are putting a skin case on it anyways though.

    I agree with BSE for the screen protector. if you take your time and follow the directions carefully, you'll be blown away by how good it looks. I have a tiny bit of the orange peel effect but it's barely noticeable and a total non-issue. Just a great product!

    What's orange peel?

    What's orange peel?
    It's a visual effect where the screen's surface, with the protector in place, takes on the look of the surface of an orange. Some have also likened the look to a golf ball. Sometimes the effect can be very obvious and sometimes it is subtle.

    Does it always appear? Is it just with BSE?
