Has anyone tried those silicon rubber cases as seen on TradeMe? I got one of the clear hard plastic ones but it broke within a week.

I didn't get one from trademe (got it in Hong Kong) but it does an OK job. I wouldn't say its 'rugged' though. Was only $3 in HK so can't compain.

it will protect from the odd paint chip etc but I don't think it will survive a fall...

I have been using silicon case for all my mobiles for sometime now

Currently I have a N73 and are using the silicon case.I hardly take it out.The keys are easy to press too

I also bought a lcd screen protector while i was over in Hk.So Silicon case + lcd screen protector = no scratches

If you put a set of keys in your pocket the slicon case will surely protect your mobile.

However the bad thing is you must not put too much force when taking the slicon case out of the phone.It is silicon after all and the material is quite soft.

This is the 2nd silicon case I have use so far.But they are yea $3 in hong kong.and lol and i was tempted to spend another $1 to buy glow in the dark ones.LOL! didnt at the end as it doesn't really matter

I'd really like to see a good quality Silicon case one for the n95

I have a silicon case + SkinIT to protect agaisnst "case grit rub" on my ipod and the ipod inside is as good as new and it's been dropped many times. But finding a good case was a huge trial and error, the case on it is a belkin product I think and came with an armband and screen protector but it's just simple and very thick.

Speaking of cases, is there any good windscreen mounting arms for the N95? I'd like to be able to GPS it more or switch to Video and record my drives, IDEAL!
