As I posted in another thread, I was disappointed in the 7130 version of this case from RIM. Here are two of the most significant issues:

1. Speaker being covered/encased causes the sound notifications to be muffled especially in a somewhat noisy environment.

2. The magnet on the top of the case that engages the flap causes messages to be marked as read instead of opening automatically when received and unholstered within 15 seconds. On the 7130 when you place it near the top of the case it actually engaged the sleeper function. So you get the sleeper twice each time you holster/unholster the BB.

I just got the Verizon leather swivel case made for the 7130. Its flap magnet is located low on the BB when holstered. So I don't see the sleeper function engage when I unholster it. We'll see how well it works in the next few days.
