From some of the other posts on the thread, the issue of "automatic unlock" once it's placed into a holster (in either BOLD or TOUR) might not be a holster incompetible issue, it could be the sensitive of the lock/unlock buttom needs to be adjusted by an software update.

Until someone makes a perfect fit holster, I don't think the problem can be fixed right now. For now, my Torch is out of a case just with a Zagg screen protector.

Got the Otter box and I love it, really well made and that internal rubber protects it from shocks, you do have to get a screen protector thou because it doesn't have that. A bonus of this case is that it makes the key lock button sort of recessed which ends the problems with it getting pushed in your pocket.

I use the 9700 factory holster that was a bit worn from my old 9700. It works well for me.

i tried a 9000 factory holster and the magnet fails when screen it on outside. it need to be raised up about half inch to work. when placing scrren inside it works when magnet on flap is closed.

YMMV

RIM OEM leather holsters are coming soon. Go to the NA site and register for email update. The most recent update that I have heard is mid-September. Until then, I am using my 9700 cases for which the magnets do not line up, I know.

I am using my old 8310 belt holster case and it fits like a glove and the magnet works just fine with the screen pointed it, which I do anyway.

Do folks think case = holster?

When someone says "case" to me I'm thinking of something rubber or plastic that stays on the device. You put it on once and leave it on and the device can be used without removing the case.

Whereas a holster is something you place the device in when not using it. Like holster with a belt clip. That's why you can use the older holsters with the 9800.

But there are "cases" that force you to remove the device when you have to use it. Like the leather case that came with the 8300. Really it's a leather pouch.

Just my 2 cents...

Got the otter box tonight and it seems pretty good (it's the black and pink but I can blame that on my daughter). Amazon has the Splash Masque screen protectors (3-pack) for $11 with free shipping. They have good reviews for the iPod but not sure about the Torch.

For the charging issue, duh, flip it upside down lolol.

The magnetic strip still puts in stand by and resumes when it taken out. I've only tested this sitting at the computer, with the charger plugged in with the top of the phone put into the holster.

As the case breaks in, I'm sure it will start to fit a lot more loosely. I'm wondering if padding could be added maybe? I've always LOVED the 9000 case- I've got through 3 of them with just my 9000 alone :D

Mine arrived today. The meaning of the red stitching...I never get tired of this...signifies that we, proud Torch owner, are part of the resistance against mindless appleheads, droid trolls, and all other non-BB spammers. If you are reading this message and you own a Torch, you are the resistance.

ok... that's a bunch of BS !!!!! The otterbox website clearly states "comes with a screen protector".

When I purchased my commuter series from AT&T and got home... no protector screen. I was pissed... lot of time spent traveling back n' forth. Called back and spoke to the guy who sold me the phone. "I'm sorry sir, it doesn't come with it".... OH REALLY????

... road trip... back I went. Walked in the door and before I could go into dick mode, the sales rep said "sir, spoke to my manager and he said to give you two free screen protectors (I bought two cases)"...

Good manager !! Long story short...AT&T is stealing from the customers. Otterbox sends them out with a screen protector and AT&T is taking it out, putting it in their own packaging and charging the customer additional funds if they want what they've technically already paid for !!!!

I too would like to know any reviews of cases such as "rubberized plastic cases" or "silicone cases?"

Might just end up getting the Otterbox ... but am hoping for something slimmer.

Particularly am looking for:

Cover possibly without blocking buttons but at the same time with coverage close by so that buttons (like the lock button) aren't pressed so easy, like in pocket.

A feel that is not slippery nor clammy.

The front case (for the slider) that is on sturdy -- won't chip off easy.

Anyone have experience with cases (FOR THE TORCH) by, for example?

Beyond
Generic
Accessory One
KarenDeals
Lux
iNcido

By the way, I bought the Amzer Luxe Soft Gel Skin Case for Torch -- am returning mine as the buttons are covered AND the places to press on the case to effect the buttons are so stiff that the buttons are not effected at all.

FYI

So I bought the rubberized protector case made by a company called Beyond via Amazon -- not 100% perfect (occasionally the front piece will pop off when pulling from pocket, and the back part is not the easiest to take off) but generally am happy with it. Hopefully it will last (bought for $8.99).

Default Otter Box was no good for me.

I bought the otter box case, kept it for a few days but then my three year old got to my phone and the slide cover came off...He did not break it but it just made the poor kid break down in a fit...When I explained to him that the phone was OK he said "this no good daddy'. Needless to say I took it back and got the AGF GRT shell for the phone. To my satisfaction, I found that the slide cover actually slide into the bottom cover and was not clipping on the phone. Very nice case and the rep also gave me the none glossy screen protector when I told him the story of my son....I would recommend it...Does increase the girth of the phone but its the best that I have found thus far....Also came with two covers, one blue and the other looks just like the phone's orignal color.
Ohhh! got it from the ATT store....
