    Thought the Bold one was better and I also prefer the Storm2 and Curve2 backs, but I otherwise like it.


    EDIT: And the 8900 is better

    What does it matter? Very rarely does a user ever see the back of the phone, or at least I know I don't. If you do then I don't think you're using it correctly.

    I have no idea, but that's what dark Epik Resin cases are for

    I would actually prefer the 8900 back if it wasn't creaky. But the problem with a
    smooth back is that it slips out of my palm too much. The faux leather is good for
    my palm.

    I hate the thing. It (as well as the Bold 900) looks and feels very tacky and cheap.

    I wasn't sure about it at first, but now I think it's cool. The 9700 is classy.

    And, it cushions the phone every time I lay it down on my desk, that's a good thing.

    It is garbage - I agree. The Tour one is much nicer. The fake leather worked on the 9000 but not on the 9700 where it is framed in plastic and has the ugly "Bold" logo.

    Hideous! I don't understand how some can call fake leather "classy" That's what I call cheesy, if it was real leather it could maybe be called classy, but would probably still look cheesy. I'm glad they left that stuff off of the 9650.

    Don't worry, I know how to handle the phone.

    I liked the 9000 door. That was an awesome door.

    Whahaha, what door do you like then?

    People complain about the stupidest crap... If it had an ugly battery door, why did you buy it? Or better yet, do something about it instead of complaining. They do make aftermarket covers you know.

    Thats like buying a new car and complaining you don't like the way the trunk looks... I know for one, if I were to buy something, if I'm not completely satisfied with the way it looks, I wouldn't buy it. Simple.

    i wouldn't buy a BlackBerry with a faux or real leather door. It's our duty as consumers to voice what we like/dont like. Isn't it? We're the ones paying for it!

    That's great, hero. We got a genius here.
    Keep in mind I wasn't complaining. I was making a statement.
    Thanks for the comment though.

    Or...the OP spends a lot of time taking self-portraits

    JK! Sorry, I couldn't pass that one up.

    Hahaha, that's funny. Made me laugh. That picture was taken from 300 feet distance. Self-portraits?

    You're okay.

    I would. I would never let something like how a battery door looks stop me from purchasing the device that I considered to be the best choice in the lineup, and it looks like the op made the same choice I would have.
