Quick Review: Case-Mate ID Case for the BlackBerry Tour 9630

By Adam Zeis on 20 May 2010 06:02 pm EDT

Here is a quick look at the Case-Mate ID case for the Tour 9630. I have to say I was excited to get this one since I really only carry my ID and a credit card when I'm out. I figured having the cards right with my device all the time would be easy and keep me from losing them. I liked the case at first, but the more typing I did, the less attached I became. I found it kind of "sharp" on the edges and the thickness of the back threw me off a bit. Overall I think its a good case, just not really for me. It needs a bit of a redesign around the sides to be worth using full-time (and yes I had trouble getting my cards in at one point). Check out the video above for my review.

Hopefully these reviews don't get too annoying. I stocked up on accesories again so there will be plenty of good stuff to check out. Bla1ze will be getting in on the action soon as well, so if you get tired of hearing my voice at least you have that to look forward to :-)



Looks Like A Waste Of Money... But To Each Their Own I Guess


Nothing like losing your Blackberry, your credit card, and your driver's license all at the same time.


Not to offend anyone. But I really think that a lot of women would benefit from this case. In my experience they never have I'd's or cards on them. (Or not when they need it anyways). Second it would be a lot better if it went all the way around the phone to hold it on better and not to have the edges up on the side that was pointed out. My last concern with this is, that I'm not sure if it is bad on Credit cards or not to be that closely stored to a bluetooth using device.


Hopefully they'll make this for the 9650 as well. Damn the relocated usb port.


I seem to remember a product like this that had more of a silicone gel to it than plastic or metal or whatever the material is. Does anybody remember it?


Verizon Tour with a Sprint Tour's back?


I like the message tone the reviewer uses. Anyone know what that is?
