I was just gonna say that actually. Most of the trackball problems are because of oily hands. And the sanatizer is like a soap for your hand you should ideally use it just for your hands!

Look into a screen shield - I had one but had to take it off as it pealed from the top. After that there were fingerprints everywhere. Now I have got my warranty replacement so I am going to put it again - best solution for fingerprints on the screen.

they do ship to india. they have 2 options one is a 2 day or 3 day option for $50 and one is a cheaper $20 option i think. the coveroos themselves start at $19.99, when i ordered mine i paid $34 for the bold coveroo. funny how the prices fell a week after i bought it.

How is the quality of the cover? I mean as compared to the OEM one. Does it fit as its supposed to?

Thanks! Definitely very interesting. Some designs look way cool. Hope the colors stick long enough to justify the cost. Ordering one anyways

Thanks guys, will try that. I do have a screenguard which covers the entire screen but notice that some finger prints remain on the portion just above the keypads ( Menu, backspace button and area below keypad)

Also the corners of Bold which is steel coated gets faded and inner black can be seen in some corners. Looks bad

OT: Bold camera is pathetic to say the least

The corner issue has practically no solution - I dropped mine on a rough concrete surface so imagine the plight of the corners. And I have seen the Colorware black bezel - no respite from scratches/fading. That thing costs $30 when bought with a $100 battery door so I am sure nothing else would last either. Best is to keep changing it as and when it becomes unbearable.

cnn.cn is what I meant when I said change it when its unbearable!

saw some coveroo pics online and looks neat! I am not sure how the color options look but the black/grey etching looks pretty sweet. Only thing is that I'll have to go for a titanium cover so that the etching is visible. What color did you get Akshay?

Thats what I thought - black would mask the etching. Looks neat none the less!

My BB9700 should be with me in 48 hours or so

Price = $ 449 = 20,650 INR !

+5$ for expresscode unlock, which still makes a sweeeet deal considering the Javelin costs more here !

It sounds like you bought it from TMobile. Where did you get the $5 unlock code from? Its $20 everywhere I try.
