    I bought a black silicon case on eBay because it came with a car charger and was much cheaper than in the store. It's quite thick compared to my Pearl's silicon case, which I like. However, my phone does not charge while in this case. The case is too thick for the charger to enter completely. It charges in certain positions, but if you move it, it loses the connection.

    My question is this: Does the one that you buy from the VZW store allow you to charge while in the case? If so, I'll head over and buy one of them.

    Hello. I just purchased the black silicone case for my Storm. It does have a slot opening for the charging port and charges fine with it on.
    Hope this helps!

    I bought mine at a Verizon store.

    No, it does not. It's a generic one and not OEM. It does have an open slot for the charger, but it's too thick for the charger to have enough contact with the port.

    I just got the clear plastic case off Ebay with the Car charger, both work great, and I can still charge my phone with the case on. Its perfectly built and its hard plastic, just in case, looks great as well.

    I got 2 covers & a car charger, all BlackBerry branded for 20 bucks shipped. Ordered Saturday arrived Monday. No problems at all with USB fit.

    Can't post links but got it on Amazon, CCM was the seller. So impressed with their service I ordered more stuff, which arrived in a couple days too.

    Newegg has the genuine Blackberry silicone skins for $3.99. You have to pay shipping, but if you're ordering something else anyway then it's worth it. And I really like it...feels nice, fits perfectly, and it's so easy to put on and take off. That's important if you need to open the battery compartment often or if you use the charging docks.

    And I agree with supporting Crackberry, but at $3.99 it was hard to pass up the Newegg deal. I've bought a lot of other things from Crackberry anyway...like bluetooth headphones, apps, and other things.

    You are correct sir. You mean people want other colors? Black is just classic, cool, and always "in!"
