    Don't even have my new Blackberry Bold yet but I bought a case so I am ready.. Hope they arrive together - Decided on the Otterbox Defender just in case I am ever careless with the phone ..

    Congrats and welcome.

    Do you plan on switching to AT&T or purchasing an unlocked Bold?

    or is that you are with T-mobile (Germany or whichever one has released it)?

    The Otter Box adds bulk, but it's totally worth it. My BlackBerry was knocked from a table onto ceramic tile. It wasn't harmed a bit.

    I showed my Curve to a co-worker today. She thought I had an older style BlackBerry until she gave it a second look.

    Lol, we're in the same boat, still waiting on both units to arrive myself... I'm hoping the bold otterbox arrives today so I can get a preview of how it feels in hand.

    Awesome choices!

    My phone is here ... my first Blackberry and I gotta tell you, I LOVE IT !! I am on T-mobile USA and as of this morning I still don't have internet. I have email and BB messenger and BB mail and texting and I don't know if I have GPS, it picks up the signal but because I don't have internet I don't know if I will get maps .. AND .. I am working with an AWESOME support person who is trying to figure out how to get the BB browser to open .. She got the rest up and going, but couldn't get the interent. She said that maybe my settings just haven't all taken place yet and it is possible to check email first before the internet starts working .. whatever .. I think I can use Opera and she is going to check with other techs and call me on Thursday night to see what's what .. I should post all this as a new post .. maybe I will .. PS .. My case might get here today. I was actually going to stay home because my dog has a late afternoon vet appointment, but I think I will stop by my office if they tell me my package has arrived !!!

    Otterbox for the Bold arrived today... man it feels good! I was plesantly surprised with the size, standard pics on the web made it seem (even) larger, but don't get me wrong this thing's not slim =)... the trade off for full protection right?

    Case Dimensions: 4.8125" x 3.0" x 0.94" (approximately 12.2cm x 7.6cm x 2.4cm)
    Holster Dimensions: 4.75" x 3.25" x 1.25" (approximately 12.1cm x 8.3cm x 3.8cm)
    (roughly 5" or 12.7cm tall with phone holstered)

    Nice quality. Silicone is smooth to the touch, not too grippy or sticky. Plastic lens over camera/flash. Happy customer!!

    I called my office and my otterbox is there - but I took the day off to take my teacup chihuahua to the vet .. at 2 years old she weighed 3 lbs . today she weighs 8 - she is obese - has a thyroid problem ... She looks like a pig, I try not to laugh .. but if anyone ever blames their weight on a thyroid disorder, believe them .. You should see poor fat Zoe !! Wish I had my otterbox instead of my $250 vet bill ..

    Mine arrived a day after my phone, at my office, but I was not there. *Installed* my phone into it today and was very pleased .. 5pm I left the office for a meeting - sat down - ordered coffee - took it out of my purse and every piece of lint from every inch of my purse was attached to the silicone. I have a white cat and a white chihuahua .. I expect that at the end of this weekend my BB will look like a Chia Pet .. I am NOT pleased .. Not at all.

    All the silicone cases will do that. They grip more than other cases, so they make pretty good lint magnets.
