Default BB side case, magnets & medical devices

Please Login to Remove!

I received my Verizon 9530 last week and I'm really enjoying it. I had a Palm 650 so I tried my old case to see if would fit my 9530 with a skin. It's very tight and I've noticed the 9530 turning on a couple of times. Therefore I'd like to get a BB case with a little extra room so the storm would slide in and out easily.
My issue is I carry a medical device that I clip to my belt and I also have a medical device I store in my pocket. Both of these devices should avoid magnetic fields.
I'm assuming the magnets in the BB cases have a minimal magnetic field. Is this correct? I've seen a post where someone bought their own small magnets and installed them in their own case. If you see this can you please tell me exactly the specs for the magnet are and where you bought them? Any case suggestions would also be appreciated.

This is a great forum. I've made several changes to my Storm after reading these posts and the performance has been good. I'll be calling Verizon today to discuss the camera click issue that's been discussed before. Thanks again
