    I have both a 8310 & 8820. I bought an Otter Box for both of them. As a fire fighter I needed some sort of protection. I find that the one for the 8820 makes it really too large to carry in my pocket. It really does feel like a brick.

    I'm going to try the Curve one out this weekend - just put it on. At first look - it's heavy but clearly smaller than the 8820.

    wow, a firefighter...you'll probably need a case that's fireproof!

    I'm not sure how practical that would be.

    I'm doing some structural burn training this weekend so I'll definitely be putting the case through a real world test. I usually keep my phone either on my belt (in the clip) or in one of the pockets of my cargo pants. My PPE is then on top of my pants and that seems to provide a decent level of protection. I'm more worried about picking up my phone while covered in dirt, dust, smoke etc.

    oh I see...well, the otterbox most definitely protects from dust, dirt, shocks, bumps, drops, and depending on which series you have, it is water resistant (defender series) or waterproof (armor series).
