    What does otterbox really make a difference against? Also how effective are they. So far all I can come up with is, if you drop the blackberry while its in a otterbox, that it won't break the plastic of the phone but rather the otterbox its self? However I do not know if it would protect the internals of the phone.

    Can you enlighten me a bit on this otterbox and its purpose/effectiveness?

    OtterBox USED to make KILLER cases, but not everyone has caught up, and they just live off of branding.

    I really enjoy Seidio cases.

    I see, but what are these types of case protective of? Just cosmetic damage to the plastic of the phone? The internal workings of the phone?

    It depends on which line you're using.

    The "Commuter" line is more protective than nothing at all, but it's not meant for particularly heavy-duty use. The "Defender" line is pretty sturdy, though they add some fair heft.

    The Curve I have for work is in a Defender case that would probably protect the unit if I threw it from a moving car at highway speeds. It also includes a clear overlay for both the screen and the keyboard to seal out spills, pretty solid seals over the buttons and ports, and a custom holster with the "sleep" magnet built in. I like it.

    Hmm, I suppose I have some thinking to do before the day I get the phone.
