    Hello all Curvers. I am about to join your ranks from 8220 flip land. My question is does anyone have a skin on and use a holster? I really want to keep this looking good. Ideas? Also, what is the best screen protecter?

    I use the clear hard case with a privacy screen proctor. I have tried many screens and hated the ones with the trackpad cut out.

    I use a OEM silicone skin with my curve OEM holster. Fits snugged but stretches through out the day. I assume the 8520 would fit the same way with the skin on in the holster. If you want it to be a bit looser I guess you can go with a Bold or a 88xx holster. Slides out a bit easier with the skin on.

    I bought a hard case for mines at the mall, it's metal so it protects it from falls, not to mention it adds some bulk so my 8520 doesn't feel like a toy anymore . I don't bother with screen protectors, I always end up ripping them off

    The Epik cases look nice (the link that penpower posted). I've got the OEM silicone case, and I find that it doesn't fit as snug as I'd like it too. (The sides tend to bunch when I use the media keys).

    I think resin skins are the way to go over silicone cases. I think I might order one from Epik, but I was hoping that iSkin would make a Vibes case for the 8520! Those look great!

    Another vote for Epik cases, got them for my BBs. Bang for the bucks.

    I ordered the OEM silicone skin and the OEM holster. Now we will see what gets here first, my new 8520 or the cases! (I hope it's the phone. I am so ready to kick this Pearl Flip to the curb!)

    I'm also considering a Vaja leather pouch. Can't decide if I want an Epik case (that will only protect the back, sides and corners) or if I want a pouch that will protect everything except for the very top. I'm not so much worried about the screen; I'm about to put an Invisishield on it. No matter how careful I've ever been with a mobile, I've always scratched the screen somehow. All it takes is one drunk night! LOL
