I've been wanting one since I got my phone but the $40 price put me off.

I'm still getting used to it so the jury's out...

The sliding case was getting pocket gunk around the bezel and it really killed the sleekness of the phone.

Anyway, my ideal case is the leather pouch with my BB curve. The magnet in it put the phone to sleep, it was easy to get the phone out plus it protected the device.
