    I would highly NOT recommend putting a silicon case on your pearl. the sides of the phone are silver and when dirt and grime gets in there it scratches the heck out of it. just a tip

    or you could weigh the options.

    1. Scratches on the phone.

    2. phone cracked to pieces.

    1. scratches on the phone - wont use the silicone case

    2. phone cracked to pieces - use my previous case to avoid that, without scratching my phone to h*ll.

    I use a silicone case made by Blackberry and I've had no problems. The silicone does trap dirt between the case and the phone but every few weeks I take the case off and clean the phone.

    I get phones from people at work that need to be worked on all the time and you would be surprised as to how dirty they get whether they use a case or not. I take them apart and anywhere there is a joint/gap there is all kinds of dirt built up. So regardless of whether you use a case or a sleeve the phone still gets dirty and grimy and scratched.
