    I'd never checked them out before... look pretty neat.

    Definitely cool that they give you access to a wallpaper which looks like it goes seamlessly with the skin.

    The only thing I would be cautious about would be that it appears the skins aren't designed for the 8330 Curve, bummer.

    Mygelskins.com have options for the 8330 under the Verizon section. I just ordered three!

    I read earlier today on the forum where someone posted that they found the skin for their Curve by searching by way of carrier, then device- not just device.

    My apologies. I was looking at MyGelSkin; which has them by carrier. I didnt stay on decalgirls site b/c the skins they have for the Pearl are not for Sprint 8130 Pearl (which has the horizontal camera window and not vertical like on DG site.

    I just discovered something on that site- while browsing the skins, you can set the timer delay to view them all. MyGelSkin takes the hassle out of clicking on each skin to view it. I think thats terrific cause I like a show for my money.

    Hardest decision now is - which one. Since my Pearl is Red, I need something that compliments it; not the other way around.

    i think an instruction guide should come with the skins, but there are directions and application instructions on the DecalGirl website under the Help & FAQ tab.

    NOTE*: the website currently does not have app. instructions for any of the BB phones! however, the process seems to be quite uniform throughout all product ranges. i'll attatch a link for instructions to apply the skin to an iPod Nano (closest product dimensions to the BB devices on the site)

    iPod Nano and iPod Video (5G) : Install Guide

    to answer your question: NO the decal skins DO NOT apply using the same method as BSE. these skins are applied by removing the backing provided with the skin and placing the skin directly onto the device. read through the link above..its a very simple process.

    good luck and enjoy!

    Thanks for the link...I should have looked there first before asking. So it seems as though its a little more tricky seeing as you can't move them around once they are on. That scares me! they seem pretty cool though...cheap enough to give it a shot anyway, if i dont like I can just take them off...at least I get a wallpaper out of the deal! lol...Thanks again!

    question about the mygelskins ones. (and it's a stupid question, too)...

    are they actually like, jelly-skins?...do they feel like rubbery?...or feel almost like padding?

    also, what if you already have a screen protector on the screen on your bb? do you just put the gel skin right over top of it or something?

    no worries Rob just take your time to match the device and skin up just right. to be honest with you, it seems much simpler than the BSE because you do not have to get it wet and let it dry and squeegee water out (i preferred the BSE because of its low profile and almost invisible appearance). these gel skins are said to be able to be removed without leaving any residue behind, but im not sure how adhesive they will be on the second or third app. just take your time, follow the instructions and you'll be good to go in like 5 mins.

    fresh skin + easy app + free wallpaper = happiness for all

    No it wasnt hard to apply at all actually i took the front part off a couple of different times and it went right back on very well. They ended up sending me a new one cause the first one was flawed in the design the black line that i was talking about. They were very quick to send a new one. there not cheap looking either very sattisfied.
