Buying this BlackBerry leather folio pouch was my first purchase from Crackberry.com. And it has been a very good experience. Not only was the service excellent, but this case shipped quickly and arrived in perfect condition. It arrived via UPS on the exact day Crackberry said it would. For all my future BlackBerry accessory needs, I will come to Crackberry. Fair prices, great service, best selection of authentic BB products. Unfortunately, I had ordered other cases from other suppliers for my BlackBerry before this purchase, and trust me those experiences were not nearly as good as this was.
This case is of compact size and it fits my BlackBerry Tour like a glove. Not too tight of a fit and not too loose. Being a guy, I got the black case, and I will not use the leather strap that came with it, but it certainly is of high quality I think most women would love the strap and use it with the pouch.
I carry my BB Tour in my front pants pocket and this leather case is exactly for what I was looking. It not only protects the screen, but the entire phone, which is important to me. Being an authentic BlackBerry case, it supports the sleeper function like all BlackBerry brand cases do. Put your Tour into the case, and it automatically goes into battery-saving mode. And even more important, this case is specifically designed for the Tour, which means it has special grooves molded into the interior of the case that protect the Tours track ball. There are four of those grooves, so no matter which way you insert your Tour, the trackball is lined up with one of the protecting grooves.
The materials used for this case, both inside the case and out, are great. Very rich feel to the leather on the outside and a very soft material used on the inside.
In summary, I could not be more pleased with this product. There is not one negative thing that I can think of to say. I finally found a case that is as high in quality and functionality as my BlackBerry itself.
I Love this holder

Pros: Easy to use.
I dont like to wear my phone. I carry it in my purse, computer bag, etc. This holder is so awesome with the strap. I can easily find my phone, grab it and lay it out so I can get to it faster while Im driving, the strap makes it so easy. The phone shuts off is is protected as soon as you put the phone in the holder, no more crazy random phone calling accidentally.I would never consider using the strap as a way to carry my phone as a wristlet, I think thats too dangerous, but if youre looking for an easy to use, easy to find, easy to grab holder for your BB this is it. Also the leather is very rich looking.
beautiful product - strap not durable

Pros: qulity leather case
Cons: Lanyard/wrst strap worthless
I purchased this case for the Curve 8900 model. I was thrilled. Im female and liked the idea of being able to carry it on my wrist. As soon as it arrived,I knew the wrist strap would not hold up. It lasted 9 days and all I had in the case was my berry. That irritated me so I wrote to BB and they said basically, "sorry they are not responsible" so it just left a bad taste. I didnt even want anything, I was suggestion that they make the strap more durable. I ended up buying a leather case that was on closeout special and cut that case apart and fashioned my own custom strap.
I get lots of compliments on the case..just be advised that the strap sucks, its a piece of string attached to the leather strap and once it breaks....and it will....thats it.
