One of the most popular case/skin options for the BlackBerry Bold 9780 and 9700 is the OtterBox Commuter Series. And there's good reason for this. The Commuter Series case is rugged and durable and provides a ton of protection for the Bold 9780 and/or 9700, yet still feels good in the hand. While it does add a little bulk to the phone, the comfort and feel for everyday use is still there. It's really hard to say anything bad about this case for the 9780/9700.
The biggest downfall for people who use the the Commuter Series case on their Bold 9780 or Bold 9700 is that there is no good leather holster option for the phone. With the Commuter case installed, the phone becomes too big for the standard Bold 9780/9700 leather holster or pouch, which a lot of people love to use. However, that's not actually the case! Check out the video above and you'll see our CrackBerry solution to this problem. It turns out the good 'ole OEM Leather BlackBerry Pouch for the 87xx series works GREAT with the Bold 9780/9700 OtterBox Commuter case. It fits perfectly and the sleeper magnet functionality works too (the sleeper magent puts the phone into standby automatically and enables the in-holster sound profile settings). Pretty awesome, hey?
