    So I just got my first BB (8130), and I am truly excited!! My first noob question is.....what's the preferred case/holder for the 8130? I like the convenience of a horizontal belt clip, but would also like to use some sort of skin protector, for when it's out of the holder. Any thoughts? Maybe a nice silicone skin with a leather holder? Thanks everyone!!

    You should take a look @ the Crackberry Shop.

    I have a holster for mine & used to have a gel skin before I added the extended battery. There's a lot of options so check out the CB shop!

    Welcome!

    Yeah I did and there are soooo many options. I figured such crackberry junkies would have some good opinions to help narrow it down a bit for me. Thanks for the help!!!

    I use the OEM leather holster (or did until I broke the Clip getting in the car) and it's great. When not holstered, I use the OEM silicone skins.

    I actually like the OtterBox cases. They offer maximum protection for Blackberries and they are water resistant too. There's like 3 layers of complete total protection (without adding too much bulk) and it still lets you access all your functions and features. The cases don't look too bad, it's pretty stylish. There's not much color choices though, just black or yellow and black.

    I got mine from Semsons & Co. Inc. They sell a lot of stuff at pretty good prices. Just read from their blog that they're offering free shipping on OtterBox cases. You can check it out here: semsons.blogspot.com. If you ask me, that's like a total steal.

    I have the BestSkinEver skin and the Speck clear case. Offers great protection, compactibility and the gold color looks great thru the clear skin and case.

    I've had the silicone skin (black) for about a month now. It's available at any Verizon store. I looks simple/classy and has the BB logo on the back. It works great. There's no risk of it sliding off a table, across your dashboard, etc.

    Naked is how my blackberry goes! I'm looking into the seidio clear hard case though. A drop or scratch could ruin my day! I like the skins but no really. I might Couple it with a screen protector too.
