The plastic cover was easy to install bubble free with a credit card and a little patience - only took two tries. The instructions were clearly written. The rest of the case and rubber outer cover installed in seconds and everything fit exactly. The keys and trackball are perfectly useable through the plastic cover just as they were without it. The only caveat is the clarity of the camera with the plastic installed - you do need to cut out the plastic bubble over your camera eye if you still intend to take clear photos with the Otterbox in place.
I had the phone out at the barn again after installing the Otterbox and there is NO dust or dog/horse hair or hay under it or on the screen AT ALL and that is a first. The Body Glove case I had before had to be removed and the phone had to be cleaned every time I took the phone with me to do horse stuff.
Anyway, I wanted to protect my replacement Curve, so I researched HD protective cases, and settled on the OtterBox in basic black (no Bumble-Bee look for me, thanks.) I bought one at a GREAT price on Amazon, and received it about a week later.
Let me tell you, this is the BEST case I have ever owned for any mobile device! I found a review on YouTube that demonstrated installation, and that decided me. Some of the comments posted there ridiculed the guy for buying a case that they perceived as being bulky, ugly, and industrial looking, complaining that it ruined the sleek fashion profile of the Curve. OK, well, I didn't buy the BB to improve my fashion image. It is a business tool to me and gets constant use all day every day. The OtterBox is all but bullet-proof, encasing the Curve in a hard shell which is then sealed and cushioned by an outer soft silicon skin, which is then further encased in the snap-in belt holster. I elected NOT to use the provided flexible transparent combination screen-keyboard-back membrane. I need the full tactile experience of the keyboard, and the membrane seemed better suited to use in a thunderstorm than to how I use my device. The remaining components of the case protect my BB to an extreme degree. I've had it and have been using it now for about three weeks, and I LOVE this thing! The outer silicon skin improves the grip in the hand and helps prevent the BB sliding off the console in the car. All BB buttons are usable through raised ribbed buttons in the silicon skin. The screen and keyboard are recessed enough into the hard shell and silicon skin to protect them against all but the most direct impact damage, and the holster carries the device screen-inward so that it's fully covered. The belt holster does contain the standby magnet the BB needs to conserve power.
This is a high-quality, beefy, no-nonsense, industrial-design case. If you want to make a fashion statement, buy ring or a Rolex. If you want maximum protection for your BB Curve, buy the OtterBox!
The holster is much stronger than I expected, with high impact plastic and a strong ratcheting swivel clip. It stays in place and is easy to slide the phone into without having to look at the holster. The magnet in the holster also turns off your screen for you to save batteries and prevent accidental button presses.
I can throw my phone into my travel bag and not worry. I have dropped my phone twice since having this case, and I can't even find a mark where the case hit the ground. OtterBox for the win!
