Review: OtterBox Commuter Series Case for the BlackBerry Bold 9930 and 9900

Being a first responder I encounter some of the most intense environments on a daily basis. I always expect the most elite equipment to help perform my job while keeping me as safe as possible. I expect the same for my device, as it's a vital tool in my line of work. The OtterBox Commuter Series case for the BlackBerry Bold 9930 / 9900 provides three layers of protection. The first layer is an outer polycarbonate shell to protect the Bold from drops.  The second layer is constructed of durable silicone adding bump and shock protection. Also an optional screen protector, add the third layer and the Bold is now encased in superior protection from anything it may encounter.

I have been carrying my Bold 9930 in this case for a little over a month and I must say it's awesome. I have dropped it countless times, tossed it in a gear bag for travel and it's even taken the trip inside some places where some phones should not be operational. Though the standard Commuter case does not come with a holster, (OtterBox, PLEASE make one!!!) we adapt and overcome. In the video you will see the device fits perfectly in a Bold 9000 holster -- the best combo! Now while keeping the sleekness of the Bold form factor, the Commuter adds no bulk at all, giving some of the best protection in cases out there. Though there are some minor drawbacks using the case, it should be sufficient for any consumer looking for ultimate protection. Be sure to watch the video above for a more in-depth look at this case.

Review: OtterBox Commuter Series Case for the BlackBerry Bold 9930 and 9900



Yes please! i just got my 9900 and have heard a lot of good reviews about the otterbox and this is just what it needs to keep it protected!

I have nothing to say but good things about otterbox. Keep up the superior work.

OH yes, I need this case.

Seems extremely useful, i'd love to win this one. Thank you CrackBerry for this chance! Good Luck everyone

I've used otterbox for my phones in the past and they have never let me know. Excellent products as always and I'd love to have another one for my new 9900 =)

Would love to win, my old case doesn't stay together anymore b/c one of the tabs that holds it in one piece broke off. Thx for giveaways like these crackberry!!!
