    Hey guys,

    I just got my Red Blackberry 8310 2 weeks ago and I am loving it. Many of you have suggested some cool accessories that I have also bought for it. There is one really cool accessory I am using that I haven't seen anyone post about. I use my Blackberry in a 100% waterproof case. I got my waterproof case at bebeachsmart.com and I was surprised how well my Blackberry fit inside the case. I am also able to use my Blackberry through the case so I never have to take any chances of it getting damaged. I use it at the beach. I take it with me on my wave runner and even while I am relaxing in my pool. One of the coolest things is that the case floats with my Blackberry inside it, plus when I am stuck in the rain I still get to use my Blackberry worry free.

    I hope this post helps others like some of the accessory posts have helped me find cool things for my Blackberry.

    Synthox,

    Glad to hear you like your new case. I took my BB with me to the beach the other day unprotected, and ended up getting a little bit of sand in it I think I like the idea behind the case design, as it could be used to keep other items dry if need be. Now I just need to go to the beach more to have an excuse to get one

    When I bought my case I called bebeachsmart.com and asked which case would they recommend. They told me the case number DP-46 Beachcomber Cell Phone Case is a great fit for any Blackberry. They also suggested the AP-344 Executive Small GPS / PDA / Smartphone Case which was made specially with the 8310 in-mind. They also suggested the AP-364 If I was interested in having extra room in the case to include my keys, money or other items as well.

    I went with the AP-344 and it fits perfect and I have full function of my Blackberry through the case including typing and making calls. A very impressive product I think. It may not be that sexy looking but it protects my very expensive investment 100% since I am outdoors a lot. I especially liked the fact the AP-344 comes with a 3 year warranty and the DP-46 has a 1 year warranty.

    (Since I can't link in this forum yet, just check their site under the cell phone category is where I found them all. This product review may be found posted my me in other forums. I love this case because of the line of work I am in. I needed a waterproof case and I am 100% satisfied.)

    I totally agree with you but honestly, having my Blackberry inside the AP-344 Waterproof Case, I have nothing to worry about. Today I tested if the case was really buoyant and I had to laugh when I watched my Blackberry float next to me in my pool. It makes me feel safe incase I happen to drop my phone in the water. As it was floating I got a call and took it right thought the case.

    I went to the site; the DP-46 costs $14.00, the AP-344 costs $25.00, and the AP-364 costs $30.00 (plus S&H). I'd rather use a Zip-Loc bag and save the $$$.

    I got the BeBeachSmart AP-344 and its a great case. I don't worry now when I get in the pool. I like to "float around" and don't worry by BB falling in the water any more. Good design.

    Yeah this person is just as ridiculous as the bag they are trying to sell. That thing is nasty. I will take my chances and pay the $100 deductible if my Blackberry is damaged.
