I was excited to find this item here for the price I found it. The pocket I got with my Pearl worked like a charm, protected the phone, let me see when the indicator light was on, and fit neatly in purse and coat pockets. I had the same expectation for this product.
I was disappointed when the sound profile changed to vibrate every time I placed my new Curve inside (even if the profile was set to silent). I called my carrier's support line and they suggested I put the key lock on before slipping it in the pocket. This is a highly irritating step I never had to perform with my other phone. It is necessary because of the interaction of the side keys (volume) and the pocket.
I am using the product because it protects the face of the phone, which skins do not; and because I don't have to deal with a belt clip, like with holster designs.
