    it is definitely VERY bulky. VERY. my blackberry looks like a Hummer.
    i do like the way it feels in the hand. the keys work good with it on.

    but i put the belt clip on it, that comes with it, and the bb "juts" out just waaaay too far, it almost looks silly to wear on my waist.

    i did order the nylon/velcro case too, and it's ok, except they didnt say that the clip is not a squeezie clip, but the kind meant for actually hooking around a BELT. (i dont wear belts-i wear scrubs to work). but it is "tight" enough that i can still hang it off my jeans or scrubs, but it's hooked/ledged at the bottom, so not so cool. (dont know how to explain it, the hook/ledged thing...its just not a clippy thang)...

    overall i like it, but will use my leather TMobile vertical case with magnetic closure and sleeper mode probably more often........

    Yeah thats what I thought about before when I was considering a case/holster, the way it would hang on my scrubs/pants. I'm with you on this I like the t-mobile one, it works fine for now.

    yes the T Mobile one is really ideal. its well padded, slimlined, and with sleeper mode, and easy access, and light.
    i will probably end up putting my bb in it more than the otterbox.

    TexasCowgirl, I bought a Speck Clear case from the T-Mobile store in Austin for $9.95 and I like it very much. By the way, where are you in Texas?

    Otterbox is definitely bulky and not for everyone. I swear by mine and wouldn't use anything else. I own a wholesale/retail beer distributor and a liquor store so with all the lifting and moving of cases I do it is truley protected in the otterbox. It has saved my curve numerous times, again though it is not for everyone!

    I do eventually want one, because it DOES make it look like a Hummer. =)
