    I personally think the "one-click" unlock button on top of the phone is a terrible idea -- although RIM appears to be sticking with it, so maybe it's just me. My problem is that, since I keep my phone (locked) in my pocket, certain movements I make can cause me to unknowingly trigger the unlock button. This obviously opens up the phone to start making accidental calls, etc.

    I figured a good solution would be to find a case that gives some protection around the top lock button. So, of all the cases available currently, has anybody seen one that should offer the maximum amount of protection for "misfires" of the lock?

    T-mobile sell a hard case that I'm using. It covers the buttons and to press them in it takes some effort, so accidental engages can't really happen.

    If you have a holster that was given in the box try using that, if not otter-box is the way to go for any maximum protection for your blackberry. If you want thin then I suggest the commuter series or impact. They both have covering for any buttons on the side or at the top. It is still accessable to use without difficulty but offers great protection. There is also defender but it is a bit bulky to my liking

    You might consider a swivel-type holster with a flap to put the phone in. With my phone, I got a very nice leather swivel holster with it in the box and have it turned vertically as to not to have anything press the phone.

    EDIT: Oops! sorry for posting the same idea as Vuitton. I'm a slow poster sometimes.

    Thanks everyone.

    Is this the "Bio-Degradable shell" that I see on T-Mobile's website? If it's not too much trouble, can you measure the dimensions of the case (including depth) ?
