Pros: Thin, durable, protects the phone
Cons: Top half can break if youre not careful when removing it
Like some of the other users, Ive had to replace this case several times. I originally started using the cases when I had my Curve, and was thrilled when they came out for the Bold. The top half is definitely thinner for the Bold than it is for the Curve. After breaking several during removal, I figured out how to do it without any problems. Remove it from the charger side first, placing your thumbs on the left and right side of the slot gently pushing up on the top. I have nails and am able to do it without breaking the case or a nail. The other thing I did was download QuickPull Pro, which has alleviated the need (for the most part) to remove the case as often. Ive had my current case for 4 months and have not cracked it or broken off the tabs. Hope this helps anyone who has had problems or has a new one.
I highly recommend this case - it will protect your phone in falls! Ive dropped my Bold numerous times and sometimes the case comes off but the phone (and yes, the case) remains intact. I have the holster as well and it is one of the best Ive found. Spend the money if you want to have a thin case and good protection!
Just what I was looking for

Pros: Great protection, Minimal Bulk, Awesome Feel
Cons: some difficulty removing
I love the case. I have the Bold and this protects the easily scuffed and dinged edges. I used an Invisible Shield , but it left the edges exposed to damage. This clip is hard and durable, but has a feel to the touch that is soft and has a decent grip. Im loving it. I also bought the optional holster which functions similar to the orginal leather case that came with my phone. It shuts off the screen when clipped in (saving more of the battery), utilizes all the "In-Holster" options for the phone, and swivels for comfort.
If I had to come up with a con for the case, it would be that it can be tough removing the case when you have to take out the battery for a reset. Once I figured that out, no problems.

Pros: Hard protective case, easy access to keyboard, etc.
Cons: None to be found!
My Bold has taken numerous tumbles about the house and office, and this case has been great. My Bold is completely protected and there was no damage to the case and phone itself after falling.

Pros: Great form fitting case
I have bought and used 5 other cases looking for a REALLY good one to fit and protect my precious. FINALLY found this one. Fits GREAT and protects just as well. Forgot that I had my BB on my lap and when I got out of my truck, it fell to the concrete. I was SO worried about the damage it had incurred. To my joy and surprise, not a scratch on the BB and only a little on the case. Pricy but worth every penny. Thanks.
Love and Trust it!

Pros: Easy fit, Snap on, Classy, and Stylish
Cons: Hard to get off!
So, let me say this is my second Seidio case, but for a different phone. I got this case for the first time with my Blackberry Curve. I loved it. You could drop it and it wouldnt come off or anything. So, when I got the Bold, I felt the need to get the same case again.
I got the pink one for my Blackberry Bold. I LOVE IT! I was putting a child into the car and the phone fell out of my pocket. Well, I teared up thinking the phone and case are ruined. The phone was FINE! The case had a few dings, but it did fall on concrete, so I was STILL amazed at the quality of the case.
The only problem I have is getting the case off, but other than that, no flaws!
