I recently acquired a Bold 9700 and while I like the included holster, I wanted something that could protect my phone on those days I didn't want something clipped to my side.

I originally purchased one of the RIM branded soft rubber cases at retail price (around 10 or 12 dollars I believe) at a local cellular store. This case wasn't bad but I felt didn't offer the level of protection I wanted. For the price, it also didn't come with a clear screen protector which I had to pay extra for.

Being the type of person that isn't satisfied until it's right, I started doing some research online. I came across the Otterbox product line on Amazon and saw that there were three cases made for the 9700. The first one I looked at was the Commuter. It was nice, no doubt about that but I didn't like the two piece design. The Defender on the other hand was definitely rugged, but overkill for my needs. I work in an office, not a construction site. Having ruled out both Commuter and Defender cases, the last I looked at was this one, the Impact.

From the description and photos, it looked like just the product I wanted. It wasn't too bulky but had cushioning in all the right places. It also came with clear screen protector. The price was also very reasonable compared to its more expensive counterparts. I ordered one and Amazon had it shipped to me in a couple of days.

Upon receiving the case, I looked at it closely and it's certainly well made. The quality is by far superior to the more expensive RIM branded case, plus offered better protection. The Impact case also fit the 9700 extremely well. The speaker and microphone holes were cut perfectly, as well as the access ports for the 3.5mm headphone jack and charging socket.

I bought this case because I have a tendency of dropping my phone and needed a case that would protect it while at the same time not be too thick to prevent me from carrying it in my pocket. This case defintely offers more protection than the ones I've seen in the AT&T store. Also, it is thin enough to not make the phone too bulky (a little bit is to be expected). The outlets on the phone are also easily accessible with this case as are the buttons for volume, camera, mute and lock. However, you cannot use the charging cradle with this case on.

The bad part about this phone is that it is a magnet for dust, lint, dog hair and anything else that might be in your pocket or surface where you place the phone. I have to clean it once a day with a moist cloth so it won't look too bad.

I may not buy this product again because of how dirty it gets. I may try a hard shell case next time.

This cover offers great protection, BUT attracts a lot of lint and dust, plus it's a bit bulky and if you keep your phone in your jean's pocket (Like me) you'll notice that it's very sticky and gets hard to take out from pocket. This if what i hate most about it. After about two months or so, I started to notice a slight color change ( like worn out kind) on the surface of the silicon, and it also got kind of loose.

I don't use this cover anymore. I purchase a similar one that had a hard plastic cover on top of the silicon so it makes a lot easier to take out from pocket, and also it much more stylish. Another thing i don't like about silicon is that when the phone is on vibrate, you can't hear the BBBUUUZZZZZ sound on the table or etc....

Pros:

- Good protection

Cons:

- Attracts lots of dust and lint
- A bit bulky
- Reduces noise from vibration
- Material quality could have been better ( For the price they charge)

Overall, I'm kind of disappointed by Otterbox. The other one I bought is much better, and it was cheaper too.

This case stops slippage, and protects from phone getting damaged if dropped. Have dropped my phone many times and no damage. You can also place the phone on surfaces and it doesn't slip. Great purchase!

I just received my OtterBox Impact Case. I'm using it for my new BlackberryBold 9780. It's great because it's extremely durable and also comes with a great screen protector that was easy to apply. It applied with no messy bubbles. This case is much, much more protective than some of the other silicone cases I've used in the past, but does add a slight bit of bulk. If you'd like to still use the belt-clip holster that the BB comes with, you'll probably need to scope out a case that's thinner. Like other reviewers have mentioned, one issue with these silicone cases (this is not isolated to the OtterBox case) is that the silicone picks up lint and fuzz pretty easily. For me, it's not an issue, so I'm completely satisfied with my purchase. I feel completely confident that my phone is well protected!
