    Are they tacky or tasteful, necessary or unnecessary, professional or unprofessional (i.e. color), ugly or flattering... you get the idea

    I thought this would be a fun thread, as I am very indecisive about whether or not I like using skins

    I think they look tasteful, though depending on your age demographic there may be differing reactions. As far as professional goes, you have a lot of choices and some will look more professional than others. I think some sort of protection for your BB is crucial, and if it's a skin then more power to you.

    I have a clear skin on mine, well as clear as they get. I think it looks nice and protects the phone. If you get black, white, or clear it professional. But others colors are necessarily unprofessional or tacky. They just are more fun.

    Black skin here, looks awesome. Wouldn't be without one - good looking way to protect your BB.

    Calportproducts on Ebay (Soundgear Accessories) is a great place to look. Skins are all OEM Blackberry, VERY fast shipping and great exchange/return policies. Just bought two for my new baby (dk red and black). Plus, I think I spent 7 bucks each - including shipping.

    The day that I bought my curve, the first thing that I did was try on the different colors of skins, that they had at t-mobile. They didn't have a lot to choose from, but I ended up getting a dark blue one and it looks great!!!

    I don't think there is anything wrong with them from a professional or personal standpoint, and lord knows there are enough colors to suit your every mood or setting. I, however, personally hate the way they feel. Don't know why but I do.

    I like them but I dont like the way the oem version loses it shape or gets loose after about 3 weeks of use. I have a black, clear and the pale gold for my curve

    I like the silicone skins. They add a little color to Verizon's plain silver look. I normally use a black skin, but I'm currently using the Seidio blue slim hardcase and love it so far. It definitely looks better than the silver IMO.

    I love the dark red one I got when I bought it. It's not too much and I think it looks great. I want more now though.

    Thanks for the referral! I just ordered three skins from them that I didn't have - Hot Pink, Dark Red and Red. I have the Lime Green, Blue, Pink, Black, White, and Orange.

    I love my skin. I use an olive green one. I was skeptical at first. But now love it , In fact I wish I had gotten one for my ipod so it wouldn't be as scratched up as it is.

    Question for users who have more than one skin: can you resuse the skins again or do you have to toss them when you want to use a new skin?
