I upgraded to the Storm from an 8830. The standard case that came with the 8830 (leather pouch with magnet and belt clip) works quite well. The storm is slightly narrower and shorter, but a bit thicker. Funny thing is is that the local Verizon stores do not stock this holder, even though they do for their other Blackberry's. I had to go to the Dark Side (ie. AT&T) to get a new one.
In regards to another option for "locking" the phone. If you use the "power" button in the apps screen, it will completely lock the phone (ie. pressing screen does nothing). However, you won't receive any call or messages either. It completely turns off the phone. Good new though; turning it back on is extremely quick. It's not like rebooting the phone.
