    I recently sent my Bold to Colorware for customization. I had some iPhones painted in the past as well. To protect my painted iPhones I used the iPod socks, which didn't add bulk, added some protection and made the phone less prone to slipping out of my pocket.

    Can anyone recommend a slip case, perhaps similar to iPod socks, that will work with my Blackberry Bold? The less bulk the better. Thanks

    Too thick, especially with the belt clip. I am looking for something with the least bulk possible. A thin sleeve.

    I love my OEM pocket pouch. It's a little stiff at first, but breaks in nicely.

    Have an oem pouch also. Only issue really is if it drops on the top of the phone you're screwed. Other than that it works great.

    Remember that not all Bolds come with the leather slip case that folks are referring to. Mine came with a leather pouch with an attached flap and plastic belt clip. I bought an OEM leather pouch and that's what I use currently. It's OK, but perfection would be a little thinner leather, no finger grab cutouts (I push mine up a bit from the bottom as to not put too much pressure on the speaker area while removing the phone), and a slot for the headphone jack so the phone can be put in my pocket in its case while listening to the phones...

    I think u need a silicone skin... its the least bulky, and it sticks to surfaces and ur hand so u wont drop ur phone. Only problem is that it does not look very classy since it covers the bezel and the backplate.

    btw, i use a silicone skin and it works great. It also acts as a shock absorber, i think.

    damn $10 for a sewn up $.50 tube sock. The silicone case idea would be way less goofy looking
