Review: BlackBerry Bold 9900 OtterBox Commuter Case


Anyone who loves gadgets probably knows well that gadgets and hard surfaces are not the best of friends, specially for some of those glossy/glassy toys. BlackBerry devices are built tougher, and beautiful but that does not mean they will not get damage if you do not take care of them. That is where Otterbox is usually comes in, they offer protective solutions for your favorite devices, and a style that fits your needs.  They offer several different types of cases depending on your needs. The OtterBox commuter case is by far one of my favorite designs from OtterBox.  It offers protection without making the device uncomfortable or bulky. This design allows you to easily place in your pockets, purse, or simply carry it on your hands.

Design: The Commuter series is a “sleek, slim and tough” design, featuring a silicon mid-layer that hugs the devices with access to all your ports, and a solid outer layer shell that encases your devices. Combined with a self adhesive screen protector the three layers form a strong protective case that keep the device looking like new, till it is time to move on to the next BlackBerry.

Placing/Removing the case: The commuter series features a two piece easy to assemble; one is the silicone mid-layer that wraps your device and the second piece is the smooth outer layer shell that wraps around the BlackBerry device.  OtterBox has also included a piece of protective film that is easy to apply to your BlackBerry screen.The commuter slick design allows the device to be protected without adding too much bulkiness to it.  This combination makes it extremely easy to place your BlackBerry in the case as well as removing. The silicon part is very flexible allowing the user to easily apply it around the BlackBerry device. Once the silicon part is in place the hard shell piece snaps around the BlackBerry with little effort.  Removing the case is just as easily and allows the user to simply apply a small amount of force to remove.


  • OtterBox RBB4-9900S accommodates BlackBerry® Bold™ 9900 and 9930 smartphones
  • SCREEN PROTECTION: Self-adhering clear protective film
  • (cleaning cloth and installation card included)
  • INNER LAYER: Durable silicone absorbs bump and shock
  • OUTER LAYER: Polycarbonate shell protects from impact
  • Access to all side button features
  • Silicone plugs allow access to all ports

This case makes a perfect case for those that travel or want a good case when they are out and about. If you have more than one case your use for your device the commuter case is also easy to place your device into it or remove it. The only thing that might keep you from not liking these case is if you like a case with a belt clip, but they got you cover with the defender series if that is more your style.

  1. Imo it’s not that easy to remove or put back on. But it is the best case available.

  2. I have a Commuter for my 9700. Most of the time I just use the silicone cover. It’s less slippery that way. Great case though

  3. I had the commuter on my 9700 since it was new. It still looks like new today.
    Their case for 9900 is great, but it’s actually a bit of a struggle to put the outer shell on and off. Once it’s in place, it hugs the device very tightly.
    I would highly recommend it to people who do not need to take it on and off too often. Best BB case, hands down.
