    I've always been a fan of this oem silicone covers, since my good old 8100 to my 8310 then for my 8900.. They've all ben great.
    Wanting to try something different I went with 6 differents covers for 9700, none has got me 100% and I don't blame them they are cheap 5 dollars covers. (Not the main point in this rant but one of them is the expensive biodegradable hard cover from tmobile and its sh!t)

    So after all of this I said screw it, I'm just gonna go good ol' OEM. Veredict:
    Material is A+ quality
    Desing and button usage A+
    Fit Z-

    What the ****? It's like putting an L shirt on a skinny guy, its not super loose, but it is unacceptably loose. When I press the lock button for ex. The whole left part is separated from the phone. I'm really dissapointed and sad, if I can't go oem, what are we going to do in this world!

    /rant

    Pd: please don't take this too seriously its true, but its just moaning.

    I hear yah, I second that. I didn't expect much since it's so cheap. I only bought one because I needed some kind of protection until I my otterbox came in; once I received it I gave away my OEM case.

    Tried the OEM cover and did not like it. Waiting for a case I bought at the CB store.

    i agree, the oem case is a big disappointment due to the size. i feel like it swallows up my baby!! def a bad move, if you ask me. tight fitting is always good.

    I too got a silicone cover when I bought my phone...the BB badged one for $12.99 and took it back....fit like one of my Magnums on my pinky toe. 8)

    I bought the Otterbox Impact series for $19.99 and it is TOP quality and fits the 9700 like the seat in my Ferrari fits me.


    BTW I also have a BestSkinsEver on my 9700. LOVE IT!

    There is no such thing as an "OEM Silicone case". RIM does not produce, nor sell these. Chinese manufacturers just use the BlackBerry logo. (kinda like a fake Louis)
