    My OEM bold case has started cracking after less than 3 months of usage. Is this normal, or is mine just a POS?

    what a POS.

    things shouldn`t crack after 3 months, unless you`re used to ****ty build quality.

    the crack didn`t propagate, but it`s a pissoff

    I just noticed today that mine is now cracking on the flap, just above the magnetic part. It is cracked about 1/8-inch on each side. I'm a little upset by this. I've also only had my Bold for around 4 months or so. I wonder if saddle soap would've softened the leather and made it less likely to crack.

    Every magnetic closing blackberry OEM case I have ever had....and that is a lot of them....have always cracked where the flap bends and anywhere else there may be consistent flex such as when you sit down if it bends in a certain area.

    They are well made cases, but you can't expect a perfect case with a perfect phone can you? When you buy a new computer or car or whatever you usually have to replace or opt for upgrades you want even if you buy the best.....just with BB's you are lucky enough to have numerous companies that you can choose from to create your upgrade for you!

    Funny, I just noticed it this morning as well. 4 months, too!

    I'm still not sure if it's really cheap leather or vinyl. I used some Coach leather conditioner on it and it didn't really seem to soak in. Just made things greasy
