    I have seen a few online ads for gel cases for the Passport, including one here on CrackBerry for the Amzer Pudding case.

    If you have purchased one, I'd appreciate it if you'd post some photos.

    I'm thinking that the BlackBerry is pretty solid, and doesn't need a lot of extra protection, but I *do* think I'd like something on it that makes it less likely to slide off the desk, or makes it slightly "grippier" in my hands.

    I got the same as the orange one that Nels posted - mine is black. I actually like it a lot. Fits snugly but can be taken off easily. The best thing for me is that both sides have raised bumps - like a basketball - that allow you to grip it well without slipping out of the hand. I am still going to look at the leather flip case once it comes out, but for now this is a nice cheap solution that gives me some piece of mind.

    three weeks ago, I bought a $8 case off of amazon. It shipped from Cina and arrived yesterday. Now Amazon shows them with 2 day Prime shipping.

    I had also bought the BB hard case. I found the phone difficult to hold on to when typing.
    I took 100 grit sand paper to the TPU case. I now have no problems holding onto the phone.

    I also bought a $30 docking station with bluetooth speakers.

    I just received the Amzer Pudding gel case today and it fits the phone well. It has a matte back so stays put. No extra weight and smooth edges. Splendid. I bought this off Ebay for $7.95 with free shipping and am pleased.

    I went for a Clear Gel Case as I wanted the frame and logo to be visible.
    Also figured the clear one would not look as bulky due to the transparency.
    Ebay$3.77 which included shipping.

    I'm sure folks have noticed by now that during heavy use the right side of the ss bezel gets warm, a natural heat dissipater if you ask me. That is why I believe the OEM hard shell from BB is the best as it does not cover this area.

    It also retains the awesome feel of the ss but covers the corners and allows it to be placed face down with the screen touching the surface.

    All opinions yes but that one is mine...

    Thanks for sharing the photos! I really like the clear one, but the point about being able to dissipate heat is definitely a consideration.

    My main reason for wanting a gel case is to make the phone easier to grip, and less likely to slide around. ... How has what you've purchased helped in that respect?

    Well... the the clear edges are more tacky, but the matte back still feels slippery. Overall I feel better handling the device, not as delicate with it when it was naked. Have noticed the heat issue, but it hasn't happened to me that much to be concerned (noticed it when I downloaded a bunch of apps when I first got the device)

    The main reasons as to why I got the Gel Case:

    1. Protection.... because I have dropped cell phones in the past
    2. Price ... can't beat it, even to just "try" it out
    3. Plan to get a Tempered Glass Screen protector so it should all fit nice together.
    4. Eventually get a docking station that will accommodate the Passport WITH a case
    5. Fit nicely with my ProClip
    6. Looks

    I have multiple cases, TPU from Amazon for under $10, it is listed under TPU S line case for the Passport. I like that it is minimal and rather than getting clear, I purchased the transparent grey one and the BB logo shows nicely and the S side section is completely transparent (clear). It comes with one of them pens that I will never use, but I also like that the frame and sides are completely covered including the volume keys.

    There are plenty of colors and pictures on Amazon sold by Lightning Knight. It is inexpensive and fits perfectly just as any TPU case should be. Anything more than $10 is a rip off for this type of case. I also have both clear screen protectors and matte screen protectors. I like the transparent grey with the matte screen protector. Just a bit of stealth. The same case in clear would look great with a clear screen protector, although the clear easily shows fingerprint marks on both the case and screen protectors.

    I have a bunch of screen protectors; 1 left from BlackBerry and Mr. Shields in both matte/anti-glare and clear. These screen protectors are not as thin as the one from BlackBerry and very easy to put on the device compared to the BlackBerry ones as well. There is also a YouTube video link if purchased that shows how to get it on perfect. I usually at least go through 2, but they are very easy to apply bubble-free. Had a piece of lint and was able to lift remove and the screen protector went back in place nicely. The Mr. Shields comes with extra sticky tape and lint remover for this and is shown on the YouTube video on applying. Very easy.

    Would recommend the transparent grey case with the matte/anti-glare screen protector. Nice combo IMO.
