    Sorry if this seems like a bit of a rant but it is

    As a recently new BB owner I have been in the market for a nice fitting case for my little friend. Having found one or 2 i like i hit the store here and Seidio.
    Ok easy enough i found what i want on the crackberry store ill go ahead and order it. All goes well until i calculate the shipping...ok im in Australia and i expect to pay a little more to have my items shipped here, but honestly $43.95USD shipping on a $29.95 case. Im not here to point at crackberry solely, I point at ALL the online shopping places that seems to think i want my items shipped to me in a gold plated box nestled in the manicured hands of a local goddess
    Im a man of simple means so a padded post pack will do just fine thank you

    Anyhoo my search for a reasonably priced shipping option continues. I would love to support more online retailers but with costs like this its impossible.

    Any help or suggestions would be great...basicly im looking to get

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank cjcarbone for organising the purchase and delivery of a case for my pearl.

    Also a side note to all you online retialers that think you need to charge us non US residents $50 for shipping...cjcarbone was able to ship it to me for ... $2.50.
    Its a shame these guys cant get their act together since i know for a fact there is a big BB community in Australia wanting good accessories. Anyhoo enough of my rant...thanks again cjcarbone.
