    Hey All, My name is Stan and I bought my first BB, the 9630 and put the Defender from Otterbox on it. So far I'm pleased with it all, still getting used to it coming from an LG Voyager, but I think it'll grow on me. I like the protection offered by the case (perhaps a tad bulky) but I'm a Bike builder/technician and have alot of nasty crap around so it's a no-brainer.
    Well just thought I'd say "Howdy" and good luck with your BB's

    To add, I did experience difficulty with the usb/charging fitting properly with the case and called Otterbox. They will in approx 2 weeks send a replacement to take care of this issue, but I went ahead and using my Dremel carefully sanded down the bottom of the rubber molding until the charger fit properly into the receptacle. Same thing done with the USB cable provided....So no longer and issue.

    Super weird, I just bought a defender for the tour that I upgraded to from a Voyager. We're phone mates.

    There was another fix mentioned in another thread. They trimmed the USB head instead of the Otterbox itself. But since you're getting a replacement, I guess it doesnt matter.

    Welcome and enjoy your new BB

    Also mentioned in the other thread is an issue some folks are having with a delayed or not response when pressing keys. The supposition is that the rubber at the camera button presses on that button, partially engaging it making the phone non-responsive when first attempting to get it active from standby mode.

    Ahhh that would be a pain. I use my Otterbox when doing outdoorsy stuff, but it works fine on my 8900 for everything.

    That's what I'm waiting for.

    Everyone is sold out or they've stopped selling them because of the charger port flaw.
