BlackBerry Storm2 Cases

Cases and Skins for the BlackBerry Storm2

Back on October 19th, shortly after the BlackBerry Storm2 was announced, we ran a post on the blogs asking soon-to-be BlackBerry Storm2 owners what the first type of BlackBerry Storm2 accessory they would buy would be: some form protection, a hands-free accessory, charger, spare battery, etc.

70% of respondents to that poll voted that a cases for the BlackBerry Storm2 (or some other form of protection) be the first item they take care of (wow!). From there, it only makes sense that we follow up and find out exactly which type of offering be the most popular. These days there are many ways in which one can protect their BlackBerry model from scratches, bumps and drops, each offering their own pros and cons compared to the other.

Invisible-type skins (Invisible Shields, BodyGuardz, Phantom Skins, etc.) preserve the look of the original smartphone and offer scratch resistance. Rubber skins (pictured above) provide additional shock protection and grip while hard form fit cases (ex. Innocase) add more bump proofing. Holsters provide power users with quick access to their Storm2, and take advantage of the unique in-holster / out-of-holster capabilities offered by the BlackBerry OS, as do BlackBerry-optimized leather cases and pocket pouches. And for those looking for the ultimate in BlackBerry Storm2 protection, Weather resistant cases like the durable OtterBox are a must-have. We want to hear what you plan to use to protect your BlackBerry Storm2.

Contest Details: Leave a comment on this blog post letting us know which case, skin, shield, holster, etc. you plan to purchase your BlackBerry Storm2. It can be either available now, or something that is likely to become available (it's offered for other BlackBerry device models so will likely become available for the Storm2). We have three BlackBerry OEM skins up for grabs as prizes! Contest ends this Sunday at Midnight PST. Leave only one comment please. *

Keep in mind that with the launch of a new smartphone, it can take a few weeks or even months for manufacturers to get their cases built and ready for sale. You'll want to keep it locked to our BlackBerry Storm2 cases page to see the latest offerings as they become available.

BlackBerry Storm2 Cases



Looking for probably a soft skin like the Storm 1 had through VZW. Not looking to waste money on a shield because 1)the screen doesnt scratch; 2)leaves a wierd feeling on the device. Something simple to protect the casing should do just fine.

Already ordered the standard plastic holster and screen protectors. Would purchase an Innocase 360 + holster when they release.

Screen protector first b/c I'll be paranoid about scratching it. I'm surprisingly good at not dropping my BB.

I'll be getting a skin for mine when I get one. I'm using the Incipio "Feather" case for my Storm1 and it's been great. It protects and is just slick enough to slide in and out of my BodyGlove holster/case easily.

Seidio Innocase. Great protection and adds almost nothing to the size/feel of the phone.

Just left my Verizon store with Storm2 in hand. Wow, it is nice. I purchased the screen proctectors first. Not ready for a case yet, need to get acquainted with my new boy.

Well I would say a form of a rubber protector LOL would be the best. I will buy the rubber skin case, also have screen protectors. For the day when i dont want the case then I will go for a leather side holster.

i have a skin for my bbstorm 1, planning to purchase the storm2 in a week (after i make a few more complaint calls so i can upgrade early)

I would def buy another skin for my storm2. its nice leaving it on the dash with out it sliding around.

..... what seems like forever for the Storm2, do you think I won't put a number of cases on it to see what's best? The first scratch would/ will/hoefully not make me nuts!

I currently use a Seidio case and holster for my S1 but for some reason it always comes off in the car. I'm going this time for a good old fashioned leather pouch and a smaller skin for some protection for when I have butter fingers.

A good gel skin or rubber case definitely, probably the Blackberry authorized one from the service provider--- provides shock protection and is helpful for a grip on the phone to prevent dropping it in the first place.

I want to get the rubber case. I had a hard case for my storm, and switched to the rubber one and that worked so much better. I am definately going to upgrade to storm 2!

i plan on buying one of those skin cases, i work at a new car dealership and all of my phones get put through alot of abuse constantly so that would be perfect for me.

Every now and then I have to get down and dirty at work. The Seidio Innocase 360 is the protection I need for the Storm2 at work. Thanks CB!!!

I still have the BB leather holster case from my original Storm so I can continue to use that at times.. But the first thing I'm looking to get is a skin for sure..

so I'll be gettign a screen protector for sure. And I've been looking into the Zagg Invisible Shield. Anyone had any experience?

It will get the job done, but Phantom Skinz if superior in terms of clarity and smoothness which is important to me. Cheaper in price too as they are always running some sort of discount it seems.

I have just gotten shipping information for my Storm2 which I will be getting with my combination Holster/Cover tomorrow.

I'd love to have something cool and custom just for my Storm2.

i will be getting the seidio innocase 2 or the incipio feather for the storm2....

i hope that these companies can get out the cases before i get mine on Dec 12th!

I'll be getting the Blackberry Skin case from the Crackberry store, hopefully around 11-2!

Unless I win one first!

I would want to protect the screen. I have the Invisible shield for my current storm and would get the same for the Storm2. In that first purchase would probably be a belt holster, so I can access the BlackBerry Storm2 at a moments notice.
Good luck to all those entering.

I will get a screen protector first, then possibly a skin!!

!<<<<<< EXCITED FOR MY NEW STORM 2 >>>>>>>>!
I love! Thanks for the opportunity!

I prefer to go w/ the Screen Protector first and validate usage of the touchscreen before determining which case to get.

I already ordered the phnatomskinz full body for mine and the leather holster/leather snap on back combo for my storm 2

So I guess the Storm cases wont fit on the Storm2?
That means I need to get a holster, Otterbox case for this wen I get mine...


Anyone know are the Storms different in size?

got my silicone case at bestbuy last week, but nontheless it would be cool to win so i could give to a friend who doesnt own one yet, Congrats all on who win

I think the first thing would be a screen protector. Then after that a case. Possibly a Seidio Innocase.

Seidio Innocase for me, I've had one on my Storm for almost a year and I will be getting it again for my Storm2!

When I get paid on this next job, the Storm 2 is coming home with me! Then time for the skin... and possibly a suit of armor - to keep it from the kids! lol
Thanks again!


I just got another Otterbox for my Storm (somehow I managed to destroy the first one) but I'm going to be upgrading to the Storm2 later today.

I'll definitely be getting another Otterbox for this one!

I probably will get a case as well.. Im alittle hard on my other phones.. have to take care of this one (Storm2).

I will get a form fit case that has a clip on the back.I like keeping my phone clipped to the inside of my pocket that way I can get to it fairly easily without worrying if its going to fall out or get stolen if I have it on the outside.

I have a Seidio case for my Curve8330. Dropped it the other day and the screen cracked. Big help that was.

I think I'm going to be getting a skin + screen protector for my Storm2 (which has already been ordered :D)

Im a big fan of the Incipio Feather Case... Will be getting that for the Storm 2 as soon as it comes out.. would appreciate a rim skin meanwhile so please picke me.....

I always prefer a hard holster, but I like the skins for summer when I have no belt to clip it onto.

I like a hard cover case because in my Line of duty I need something more than just a soft skin to protect my phone.

I like a hard cover case because in my Line of duty I need something more than just a soft skin to protect my phone.

I cant wait to upgrade to the storm2 though the storm1 is much better on 5.0 First thing I'll get is a Seido spring clip holster.

I plan on getting a case for my storm 2 when I get it if it doesn't already come with one like my Bold 9000 did. If it does, then a skin would be my next choice.

I'm a long-time Storm user, but will definitely be upgrading to S2 when my 1 year upgrade is up on 11/29 (even with the new OS on my Storm). C'mon Lady Luck!

...I'd prefer the Seidio Case, but heck, anything will do! :)

want to be the first with a new case :)

got it this morning at 9:00 am :)


now shelving my storm 1 lol

Im waiting for a seidio combo case and holster for my new Storm 2 :). I would really love to get my hands one of these skins.

I planned on using my existing holster since the dimensions are all the same from the 9530 to the 9550. However, I might consider getting an OtterBox if given the choice!

the first form of protection I would buy would be a skin, because most thing that happen when ones device is out of the case, but the second thing I would buy would be an Insible Shield to protect the screen from micro scratches and niks.

The first thing I plan on buying if and when I get a storm 2(hopefully in December!) is a screen protector. The last thing I want is a scratched screen.

This is my first touchscreen BlackBerry device, and I'm upgrading from an 8830WE. The molded rubber skin case was absolutely fantastic. A few notable incidents:

- Stopped at an off-Interstate gas station. While fueling I took a phone call, and after hanging up I put it on the roof of my car until I was finished with the fuel. I forgot about it and it flew from the roof as I hit the on-ramp to get back on the Interstate. I saw it from my rear-view, pulled over, ran back to grab it. Not a scratch.

- My son used it to play a game of ninja with the dog by using it as a throwing star. Minor scuff was the result. Completely missed the dog.

- Co-passenger on a flight to Washington, D.C. spilled her water on my fold-out tray. The bottom of the case was wet, but the battery tray area was not.

I'd recommend the rubber skin over the snap-on counterpart as I've seen, first hand, how the snap-on comes apart and spills the phone out. Sure, the phone was protected from the initial impact, but I'm sure road rash wasn't on the menu either.

wow a chance to win a new case to go with my new storm...I relish this all around upgrade

I plan on buying the Seidio Holster for BlackBerry Storm 2 I am doing some comparasion shopping. But I like the look of this and this will more then likely be the holster I purchase.....

Screen protector is first and foremost, and while i loved keeping my storm sexy and sleek with the classic leather sleeve, the couple knocks its received have convinced me to definitely get a skin right after the screen protector. It's like a bar of soap sometimes goodness!

I got an Otterbox last week for my Storm1. When I talked to OtterBox(great folks by-the-way) They said since noone knew the lauch date, they didn't know if it would fit the new Storm2. Well I went this morning and got the first one from the store and, it doesn't fit, but no worry, OtterBox said I could return the other case and when the had the Storm2 they would let me know. I guess they were getting one today as well.

SO far Beautiful Blackberry!

I already have extra Storm1 screen protectors so this is an easy decision, skin would be great for my new Storm2 to keep it nice 'n' clean.

Im getting a skin first and screen protector. I just got done ordering my new phone over the internet and over the phone and 2 hours later my phone gets suspended, spent an hour on the phone and Im good again. Hard to leave comments when they shut your phone off early. Lol.

Gotta have a rubber to cover that Storm2 as I don't want it sliding away; needs some friction.

I'd like a Seidio hard skin for my new Storm2 :) BTW I just got home a few hours with the new Storm and I love it. Much better then the first one and so easy to type on.

I'm using a Curve 8350i right now and the Seidio looks almost identical to the one I'm currently using. Can't wait to get my Storm2 in my hands!

I want to get a rubberized case for my new S2. It would get great to get rewarded for the time I spend reading Crackberry by winning a Innocase. I'm a newbie to the BB world and have found Crackberry very helpful. Thanks for all you do!!

I bought a silicone skin & some screen protectors today to tide me over until OtterBox comes out with a Defender case for the Storm2.

I have purchased many cases for my Storm device. A skin that maintains the size without bulk is the best way to go for me. Look forward to having a new skin for my Storm. Thanks and take care.

I plan on buying this when my plan ends on January 1st (great way to start the new year) and also plan on buying a silicone case, either translucent or black (I'll have to see what it looks like).

im looking for a rubber gel case...every hard case i get when i drop my phone it falls off the phone...whats the point of the case than?

I'm looking for a skin for my new Storm 2. In the meantime, I'll make do with the one from my curve...not a perfect fit, but helps against bumps and scratches.

The InvisibleSHIELD is a must have!!! Thats what I'm buying first and after that I'll get a case but I want to show off my baby for a little while with the protection of shield before I took it away for the long haul!

I plan to buy either the Seidio Innocase II or Incipio Ultra Light Feather case for my Storm2. It just depends on which one becomes available first. I will also purchase a Seidio holster for my Storm2 to use whenever I go case-less. I have these same options currently for my Storm 9530.

I LOVE my storm & the inventors who were the backbone to making thedream a REALITY.I cannot thank them enough! However,..I CAN dream myself & I want my reality with my God-like smartphone to be draped in the KING status case it rightly deserves! Please do my sexy NAKED & unprotected B.Berry STORM a comfortable secure sleek case to feel safe rising to the light of all her applications & abilities..Thank you for your time,Crackberry!

I tend to drop my phones on rare occasions, so a protective skin/shell is a *must* - bit I have limited pocket space, so I also need a belt clip/holster. I've seen a leather shell/holster combo that looks pretty much like what I need...

Had mine since launch.. rides in my pocket with my car keys, dropped on the cement countless times screen down... still no scratches... you can run your car key over the screen, won't scratch it... Just an FYI to save you a couple bucks, and unsightly air bubbles...

I'm do for a VZW upgrade Thanksgiving weekend and will be getting my first Blackberry device, a Storm 2. Prior to my exchange I'll probably order the Nite Ize Leather Cargo Clip Case or something similar. Reason? The belt clip wraps under the belt to guard against loss.

I will defiantly be rocking a OEM Blackberry Skin. It just fits so tight and makes my Wife feel like she can really grip it in her hand. No gutter thoughts please I really am talking about my new Storm........

the storm's form factor is way too sexy to be covered by a case so i'd have to go with a full shield :D

I'll be getting a few different colored silicone skins. I like the sticky OEM RIM ones and also the smooth clear silicone ones when I need to wear pants in the cooler/colder months and don't have to struggle getting it out of my pocket.
