    I managed to walk out of Verizon last night with JUST the phone. The salesperson I was working with is a good friend of ours, so he didn't try to upsell me on anything he knew I was able to get for cheaper elsewhere.

    He showed me some of the cases... do you all recommend having one? If so, which type? Best place to buy them?

    I also need to buy the microSD card.

    Any other "must have" accessories I should know about?

    I have to have a skin and the OEM style holster with sleeper mode - both available in the CB store.

    As well as microSD card. I found a 2gig for 18.99 at Radio Shack.

    Wow, good deal. Cheapest one I saw yesterday was at Circuit City for $34.99. They had a 1GB for $19.99. Now I'll have to check out Radio Shack!

    $24.99 for the 2GB is still a good deal, Chaz! I wonder if that sale is good in stores. I'll have to call the Radio Shack by me and see.

    I'd also highly recommend some kind of screen protection - the screen is key and while getting scratches else where might be disheartening, a screen scratch will kill you. I went with an 8gig card (in anticipation of the OS upgrade) with my corp. discount the price was not bad at Verizon store. Otterbox since I hike/bike.

    i picked up that same A-Data memory card from newegg for $17.99 plus $3 or $4 shipping. i'm still waiting for it to come in.

    to the op, a good cradle is also nice to have for your desk. check out the ones from Seido, some dont work well with a skin, but i think his does. if not theres an all leather one on CB i think that might be nice.. it just holds the phone so you have to plug in the USB cable to charge/sync.

    I'm all about ShopCrackBerry.com! I guess I'm a little biased, but it's gotta be the best one-stop shops for crackberry addicts in terms of complete section, prices are always good (and sometimes greattt) and the customer service can't be beat. Plus it helps keep this site going. :-)

    As for my must have accessories, I'm a fan of and/or use:
    - Holster - Seidio or MobiProducts
    - Bluetooth headset (Blueant Z9 or Jawbone)
    - If you didn't have GPS on your phone then a Freedom Bluetooth GPS puck is a must
    - Media Card - bigger the better. usually buy sandisk it seems.
    - OEM-sized extended life battery
    - Bluetooth speakerphone (Blueant Supertooth Lite) since my car doesn't have it built-in
    - Desktop Charger (I have a BB charging pod and power station)
    - Motorola S9 headset for working out
    - Replacement Door Covers (i don't like skinning or using protective films too much, so I just replace the battery cover when my thumb eats through it
    - Remote Stereo Gateway for listening to music

    That's about it.... Wow..long list. Too many links to put in, so just check out ShopCrackBerry.com - it's all from there :-)

    If you're gonna be a heavy, look into an extended battery. ShopCrackberry carries the Seidio 1500 & 2600 mAh extended batteries.

    Mmm, I have to get extra door covers too! I hate skinning but my BB but I have too!

    For your SD card check out Buy.com, you can get a 4gb for 26.99 or a 2gb for 12.99 if you're a first time user of google checkout you can get 10 bucks off after shipping and tax. I paid 23 and change for the 4gb.
