    Just curious how many bold users use the otterbox defender case? I just ordered the yellow one for my bold.

    I use mine all the time its bulky but I wouldn't want it any other way. My bold looks like it just came out of its original box

    I've used the impact series, but its not for me. I can't wait to get my hands on the defender though

    I have used one for over a month and like it. I took the plastic inner liner off, thought, because it impeded my view of the screen. If you use your phone a lot and don't have to pocket it, this is a great case. My only complaint is that the silicon outer liner stretches a bit but on the whole I am happy with it.

    I was going to buy a casemate for my bold but they're all backordered for 4 weeks except for purple.. And well, I'm a man. I don't do purple.

    I started using otterbox with my pearl, then curve, now bold. As has been mentioned there is an echo issue but, with the bold at least, its not that bad. You can't use speaker phone with it because of the bold's air/sound port design but nothing protects better! And the screen protector layer is not noticable if you use a tiny bit of water/soap on the screen when you put it on

    Nextel has a fix coming out in March to fix a known echo issue. Not sure if it will help with the compatibility for the Outter box and the 8350i. I too tried one and its sitting in my drawer. I am now using the Rugged brand case available on Crackberry and so far so good.
