Complete Protector Solution for the BlackBerry Curve

  • Apr 11, 2010
  • by
At first, I worried this would look uncool for a woman to carry around. I loved my simple cases, but they didn't protect the BlackBerry. After much research, I went with OtterBox. Many women ask me about the case and compliment that it looks great and practical.

The OtterBox has three layers: (1) The clear screen protector that covers the entire screen, keyboard and the backside. (2) The yellow hard shell that comes in two pieces, which easily snap together. (3) The black rubber outer cover that makes the whole thing feel natural in your hands. The three parts work together and have been taking good care of my BlackBerry for a long time. The only weakness is the protector.

I cut the clear screen protector in half because it got old to keep removing the plastic on the backside whenever I needed to remove the battery. And how did Otter forget to leave a hole for the camera? Yes, the protector affects the pictures. So I have the screen protecting the front side of the BlackBerry. But it's slipped that sometimes the rollerball won't move in one direction. I'm currently seeking a replacement and most protectors only protect the screen and not the keyboard. I find it helpful to have the cover on the keyboard because they work better.

I'd love to see the yellow come in other colors like red.
