Well, it only lasted 3-4 months then broke in half. The problem is in order for it to stay together, the clasps need to fit tightly. Unfortunately, with Blackberry you have to remove the battery every so often which means you have to open the case. Opening it is difficult to say the least and likely was the cause of it breaking. We were careful but with over 3 months of opening and closing the case couldn't handle the it. It is still stylish and durable from a protection standpoint but they need to redesign how you open the case to get to your Blackberry OR you need to be ultra-careful when opening. We recently purchased this as a replacement.Otterbox Rbb4-8500S-44-C5Otr Blackberry Curve 8520 Limited Edition Commuter Strength Case (Pink)
Purchased for wife's new Blackberry Curve several months ago. Found a similar one at the mall but looked cheap ($20) and thought this one by Body Glove would be better. So far, that is the case. I had my wife provide feedback below:
What I Like:
--Easy to pull out of purse or pocket vs. gel covers.
--The cover snaps on and is very secure.
--The design is "super cute" (no troubles with it wearing off to date other than normal wear)
--Ultimate protection for the Blackberry -- it still looks like new.
--The price was right.
--Doesn't block edge keys like some other BB covers.
What I Dislike:
--Because of the secure nature of the cover, you have to nearly pry the thing off every time you want to reboot.
--It does add some bulk to the device.
Bottom line: For $16 this is a very functional and stylish cover. Go get one.
