    It came all the way from Hong Kong and took about 2 weeks to arrive (same as some of my CNN parts).

    BLACK Soft Crystal Gel Hard Case Blackberry Tour 9630 - eBay (item 300335551087 end time Sep-02-09 12:14:31 PDT)

    I ordered the black, and it looks very black in the photo. But the case actually is smokey grey and has a slight brown tint to it. It's not completely black like in the eBay photos by any means.

    But, the feel of the case on your phone is perfect. This case is sturdy and stylish looking. Best I've seen so far. I give it a thumbs up other than the color not being quite right. I've contacted the seller about it

    It also comes with a screen protector and a satin cloth.

    Other problems I had with the case is that the charging hole is not large enough to allow for placing the charger securely in it. It never stays in for me. Also, the headphone jack is not exactly aligned. It's off just a little, but still usable.

    Nevertheless, I've moved on from this case to the Seidio brand, now that they have accessories in stock:

    I ordered these too, several colors. I can't wait to get them because a friend has one from Tmo (they make a case with this same material) and I couldn't find one until you or someone else posted them from eBay. I didn't realize they were shipping from Hong Kong until I looked the auction back up when it had been over a week. It'll be worth the wait, they're great case/skins.

    I bet your black looks "smoky" doesn't it? I think that's because of the material it's made from - they can't be completely black. Besides, you can see the BB logo in back through it, right? kinda cool..

    Most definitely a slamming case! It is see through and I like that. It has a pattern that can be seen in it a little in the back, and yes you can see the BB logo. Best case I've seen so far. I really like it. I guess this is sort of a smokey black. I was just expecting it to be as dark as the photo. I'm still very satisfied with it though.

    EDIT: The case fits VERY snug and the phone feels very sturdy and durable in your hands. I highly recommend this case.

    I forgot to mention that the grip on this case it also top notch. The phone feels secure in your hand. I will probably order a few more cases in other colors.

    It's also scratch resistant. Peep this video:


    Now that I look at the photos further down, they do have a smokiness to them as well.

    GET THIS CASE PEOPLE!!! LOL!

    Nice looking. Question: Does it still fit nicely in the OEM Holster? I got the OEM skin and they are flimsy but it works in the OEM holster. How is the thickness?

    I just recieved mine today as well. It fits VERY snug and is perfect. All the buttons and holes match perfectly. With the black you cant see the pattern at all (which i dont mind)

    It feels excellent in hand. Gives the phone the "feel" of weight to it. It look excellent....

    Kingzee you need to read. It said in his store it comes with free screen protector lol

    Heres a couple pics. His screen protectors are excellent quality. I bought the mirror ones. They are great. No visibility problems except if you turn the device on its profile : )

    Looking good... Yep, same exactly color as mine. Just heard back from the seller and he said they should be smokey black colored. Guess that's spot on then.

    I may have to consider the mirror screen protectors!

    If it allowed the Tour to be charged in a charging pod I would be all over this.

    yeah it is a GREAT case. I can't believe it's only $5.00...

    Kingzee this case feels great in your hands huh? It's got grip without being sticky and it gives the phone a solid feel. I had the OEM and it blows it away. It's hard to explain the difference this thing makes..

    Just tried it. Yes, it fits and is still fairly easy to insert and remove. It's much easier to do it than it was with the OEM silicon case because it was "grippier" to the leather case. This one IS slightly bulkier, yet easier to insert and remove. The strap somewhat barely overlaps over the phone onto the case though. It does, but just not as well as it would if the phone was not in a case. Which is to be expected of course.

    I am getting my first smart phone and one thing I notice is that u have to charge them daily. It seems like being able to use a charging pod would be a huge benefit. R there any pods that will work with the gel or the silicone skins. Seems like it would be a pain to plug the phone in every day vs using a pod.

    Why would 1-2 seconds each day of your life be a pain? I own the pod as well, but still don't find it a big deal to use the side connector with a case on the phone.

    I just purchased 2 of these cases off ebay. I hope it doesn't take too long before I receive it.

    I have the black case too...I love it and stop using my oem skin. The ebay skin is far superior to the oem skin in my opinion.
