    I have a black barely there, fits inside the swivel holster, snug, should loosen up with use.
    My bad.

    I thought the question was whether the case mate barely there case would fit in the OEM slide in holster.

    Do all the barely there cases have the same footprint? I wonder if their brushed aluminum case will work with the charging pod.
    Great question. Did you get any feedback on your question.

    Just got the white and black case like mpshah and I love them! They fit really tight on the device and works great in the charging dock. I loved them so much i ordered the silver plated and gold plated ones as well. Will post pics when i have them all.

    And it only came in gunmetal gray and black

    And if it does, does the sleep sensor work with the 9900?
    Thanks for the info.

    Thanks everyone for the info. I ordered the black one myself. I always use case-mate barely there cases for my phones as the fit extremely well and feel great, but I was worried that I wouldn't be able to use the dock with it on. Now that I see it works my order is already placed. Thanks everyone forth advise .

    So in my search of trying to find whether the Brushed Aluminum case fits the OEM dock, I saw this and you have the regular Barely There case. I just received my Brushed Aluminum today, my pod should be here anytime this week. Though if according to CM they should both be the same specs. So I don't see why it wouldn't fit. My only concern is the case has raised edges on the left and the right of the phone, slightly but still noticeable, definitely by touch you can notice it. Anyone else with the case confirm?

    I'll post pictures of mine with the dock when it arrives if anyone cares to view.

    I have both the silver brushed aluminum and the white one. The solid color ones fit much tighter and I could not just my phone in like I could with the brushed aluminum. It fits the dock with the solid color case but not the brushed aluminum one.

    So you're saying the solid colors fit the dock and not the brushed Aluminum dock? Not a good sign. I think I'm going to need to try this and if it does not fit, CM customer service is going to have a customer with an issue very soon.

    Supposedly that's for the microphone that records for the video camera.

    You were right, pod came in and I tried it, I can get it to sit right but it won't charge as there's no contact. I thought the solid one and the brushed aluminum were the same but the back has the added aluminum "sticker." Even though the bottom of the solid has some case lifting the phone it works on the dock for you guys?

    EDIT: After some closer examination, the piece that really renders the case not compatible with the dock is the back piece, where the slit for the battery door is suppose to be. That piece is in the way, battery door slit is suppose to rest on the "resting" ledge on the pod. Since the CM BA BT case is too thick there and not cut out enough the phone does not make enough contact. I hope the regular CM BT case is different, I'm going to talk to Case-Mate hopefully by tomorrow about this. If not I'm probably going to have to return and I see some similar cases on eBay which may suffice. I can always file that piece on the eBay cases as those are like $2.00 so I don't care as much. =] Keep you guys posted.

    EDIT 2: Also with the eBay cases, the bottom's side pieces appear to be shaved more; doesn't cover the bottom as much, which is a very good sign as well.

    Want to save a lot of money:
    Snap-on Black Rubber Skin Case For Blackberry Bold 9900 9930 | eBay

    Same case-feels great-fits great! Fast Delivery-Eforcity, I think.
    It is that hard plastic, but feels rubbery and smooth. Excellent case.
    Only $2.76!

    I prefer those TPU casing sold on ebay. They are super cheap and can act as a cushion when you drop it

    They get too greasy and turn colors, plus they're not breathable. Traps heat in the device.

    Purchased a Casemate BarelyThere Black case from MobileFun in the UK along with the Blackberry charger pod. The phone does not make contact in the pod with the case on unless you push it down and hold it there

    I totally prefer them as well! Not to mention that they actually cover the whole phone!!! This only covers most of it. But the top and bottom are areas are exposed and I'd want to protect those areas too. Not to mention those cheap TPU cases cost around 1-2 USDs while this case costs a loooooooooooooooooottt more! So get 5-10 TPU cases or 1 Case-Mate?

    That doesn't mean they don't make good cases! I have other case-mate cases and they're ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC!
