    I love the chrome mine doesn't look cheap at all. Neither does it peel. I hardly see it anyway because i have a black gel skin.

    I like the way the 8900 looks. I have a Case-Mate over it.

    People hate it because that's the way it came. If it came with a cheap black painted bezel you'd see people posting about pimpin it with a cheap chrome painted bezel.

    I use the BlackBerry black gel skin (which I wouldn't live without). Unless I take the case off, you wouldn't even know the chrome was there.

    what! my roommate has the 8900 and i think its f*cking sexy. i like chrome trim and more carbonesque finishes or leather. it adds class and imo customizing and colorware makes BB look awkward or out of place.

    i agree, and i think its also because people don't want theirs to look like everyone else... and some people just like to show off... which i honestly think is something most of us bb lovers like to do...

    I have no intention at all of getting its charming bezel replaced anytime soon. I absolutely love the chrome finish. Maybe one day when the bezel has gone bad I would change it to a black or even carbon just for looks

    That's not the case for me. I just don't like the chrome bezel. Black looks a lot better. I'm not into bling.

    I liked it until people said that it peels. I loved it so much I refused to get a case. But I would get a case before I let it peel. Don't care or have time for a black case. Great phone and if it didn't peel I would still love it.
    But yeah kudos to what the poster said about people hating it because. One can't satisfy everyone.

    I like the chorme bezel, but I think it's too much. I had a case(cozip) to cover both side of the bezal, only left the bottom. It looks cool, and no peel yet.

    Love the chrome on my 8900...looks great to me, and I see no reason to change it out. I've been using a standard old 8300 vertical leather/lambskin holster (with the magnetized strap that drops over the top to secure the phone -- but no skins or snap on cases. I love to hold a naked blackberry when it's in use, and look at the naked 8900 sitting on my desk when I'm working. Much rather do that than hide it away in a skin or snap-on cover.

    I've had my 8900 since the day T-Mobile had them in retail stores, used it dozens of times a day since then, and kept it in the leather holster when not in use. No signs of peeling yet --still looks like new. Wouldn't change it out for anything ('cept maybe a Driftwood...or some kind of gonzo Blackberry touchscreen/keyboard hybrid like a bold with an 8900 keyboard and a touchscreen, a GB of RAM, wifi/3g/gps/bt/etc...).

    For now -- keepin' my 8900 chromed and naked...

    I'm not a fan of chrome to start with, but I really don't mind it on the 8900. I did drop the phone a while back, and it is chipped, but not pealing yet

    Look, it's a PHONE, for God's sake - not a piece of jewelry....as stated earlier, if it came with a black bezel, some people would be compelled to change it to chrome.

    This is typical human behavior: it doesn't matter what forums one subscribes to, for whatever interests - there are always factions that have to display their own uniqueness and individuality with the subject of the forum.

    I find it strangely interesting.....

    its things like customizing and colorware that make the phones look cheap.
    Exactly!!
    All that after market junk is what makes phones look cheap and childish.
    I personally love the chrome (or imitation chrome, or whatever the heck it is).
    As a matter of fact, the lack of that look is the only thing lacking on the Onyx (in the pic it looks more like gunmetal than chrome) IMO
