    HI all,

    What cases have you all found to be the best for your Z30's? I hate bulk and on my Q10 I love the soft shell and even when I have dropped it it protects perfect!

    I also have a Tempered glass Screen Protector on my Q10 and its been great! The seller put a skinomi wet application one screen protector on it.

    Mine is coming from a Otter box defender and a BB leather holster. Looking at the OB Defender looks horrible and bulky!

    Any pictures and input would be cool.

    I use the OEM holster or the flip cover, plus I have ghost Armor protective material. Of course these options don't provide maximum protection, but for me I like the the feel of the device and rarely drop them.

    Here is a link to a thread I created on here for a bumper case and holster:

    http://forums.crackberry.com/showthread.php?t=938536

    The holster is a little loose but works, the bumper is great! I drop my phone all the time and there aren't any marks on it thanks to the bumper.

    I never liked the bulkiness of the Otterbox Defender, but they do work. Right now I'm sporting an Otterbox Commuter. Very well protected and does what I need it to do. Kinda wish Seidio made a case and holster as I had one for my Z10. Still really liked that case.

    I use the OtterBox Commuter and then this one from Verizon.


    I like the Commuter, though recently the side of it broke, so I used Krazy Glue to keep it together. The Verizon gel skin one is really nice. It keeps the silver chin covered, and allows for full access to the ports, but keeps the volume buttons and power button covered. While I like the Commuter, it is pretty bulky, and whenever I take my Z30 out, I'm always kind of sad that there aren't more cases that allow its design and thinness to be shown more. The one cool thing about the Commuter is that there is a cutout for the BlackBerry logo, so everyone can see it.

    This case is the one that we've got on the Z30's here;
    BlackBerry US Online Store - Z30 Leather Flip Case - Black

    It puts it to sleep when closed and looks nice when it comes out of a suit pocket or just lying on the table.
    You can see the red LED blinking through a special lens on the closed leather door as well.

    Also comes in white.

    I went with the Otterbox Defender. I ride a Harley and had a previous BB knocked out of the holder by my wife. (don't know why she thought she could pull my phone out of the holder while riding on the interstate) It took the fall and 1000's of flips down the interstate at 65 mph and still worked when we found it (thanks to a couple riding behind us!) It as bulk to the phone but it really protects it also!

    Blackberry Transform is by far the best and most durable, they give you a screen protector with the case for all around protection! After trying many cases on my Z10 and having them break for no reason I went with transform for that phone and once got Z30 did the same!

    <<< Mailman.

    Anything that comes as "Smart Post" or "Sure Post" has the last mile of delivery done by the Postal Service. In short, free shipping means the delivery companies minimize their costs to get it to you -- FedEx and UPS have the lowest cost over long distances, whereas USPS has the lowest cost on the "last mile" of delivery. All that handing off takes time but reduces cost. Trust me, even the Postal Service has strict deadlines, and people do lose their jobs for not meeting them.

    Curious, has your clear case arrived yet? I'm also in the market for a case.

    I got notified last night that it was delivered but I'm in the Hamptons until Sunday. That's why I used Prime 2 day shippingto have it delivered on Wednesday but nooo. I had a friend pick it up so it wouldn't be stolen and they said it was just laying on the ground in front of my house's front door...nice job USPS.

    I gave a great shield case I bought from amazon for peanuts. It is by far the best case I've had on it. Beats the tar out of my otter box defender. Put an I smooth screen protector on and the great shield case. Good combo.

    So I just got the clear case & it looks, no looked, pretty thin and flimsy. After sticking my Z30 in there, it seems to have gotten a bit sturdier. It has holes for the mics on the side and the plugs along with the speakers and headphone port. It has a very small raised lip to protect the screen from drops. The case seems wiggly at it's obvious weak points, the middle from the Micro HDMI/USB ports to the noise cancelling mics because of the holes cut out. Pretty decent case for the price. I like it as a casual case.
